Face massage benefits

Many Hollywood A-list celebrities are advocates of face massage because of its ability to boost the circulation of blood so helping to improve the texture of skin and even visibly reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles. It does this by stimulating collagen, so skin plumps up and over time, with regular massage, wrinkles do appear finer and lighter.

That blood circulation is what gives skin a healthy glow, so with massage, your complexion looks bright and youthful. Face massage is also great for getting rid of toxins and impurities from the skin via the lymphatic system. A deep face massage should exfoliate skin so the dead skin cells naturally fall off but the effect of massage also stimulates the lymphatic system, removing waste from the area of massage so that it eventually travels out of the body through natural waste.

Bearing all of the above in mind, it’s a good idea to treat yourself to regular face massage but, not everyone has the time or the money to do this. So the next best thing is to ask a friend or partner to do it for you, or, you could purchase a specially designed face massager or ultrasonic facial machine. These products offer something for all budgets and generally deliver a fantastic massage experience.

How to use a face massager

Use your facial massager once a week for best results and combine it with your chosen face cream or serum as this helps the cream/serum to really travel deeply beneath the epidermis so give better results.

Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and never apply pressure so you feel any discomfort. Light to medium pressure is best. Use your massager in light, upward strokes so skin is ever so gently pulled away from gravity, this stimulates a youthful complexion tightening and plumping during the treatment. Do take care at points of sensitivity such as the eye area.

Anti-Aging Face Massager by Vijuve

Anti-Aging Face Massager

This face massager retails at approximately $80 (depending on where you buy it from) and is made by Vijuve. Designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and boost glowing skin, it tightens and plumps during use. With prolonged use, your skin will look youthful and fresh.

The massager can be used with or without your favorite face cream and if you do choose to add it to your beauty regime with cream then it really will help your cream to penetrate deeply and so give you better results.

It is battery operated and provides 9,000 vibrations per minute (just one AAA battery gives up to 3 weeks’ worth of use – no need to charge). These tiny vibrations rebuild the skin’s collagen; promote blood circulation so that the skin looks radiant and youthful. Clever design means it doesn’t even have a button and it switches on and off by sensing the touch of skin.

Measuring a tiny 5 inches, it’s easy to take with you wherever you go and it’s an entirely efficient face massager that you can use on yourself or on a partner. A top seller, you’ll reach for it time and again.

RIKA Beauty LED Facial Massager

RIKA Beauty LED Facial Massager

This LED facial massager by RIKA is designed for a multitude of uses. You can use it to tone, firm and tighten skin (therefore promote a younger looking complexion) or you can use it to help dramatically reduce acne. Using LED light therapy, it’s a superior massager that retails at $90 (depending on where you buy it from).

Hand-held, it’s entirely portable for your convenience so you can travel with it or take it with you to the gym for use post-workout. The best way to use this portable facial massager is with your chosen face cream or a serum. The massager helps the serum or cream to sink deep into the skin for the best results.

The massager has three LED lights:

Red, which you use to increase blood circulation and boost collagen production so promoting a younger looking skin
Blue, to reduce bacteria and help to banish acne (this light discourages the production of sebum)
Green, for an anti-aging experience. This light smooths out fine lines and wrinkles so skin looks youthful

It works using a vibration function and there are two different settings, intense or intermittent. To use it, you must plug it into mains power (which is one disadvantage as it isn’t as portable as a battery-operated face massager). However, it comes with a free one year’s manufacturer’s warranty.

Carer Wrinkle Removing Machine

LYFT by Nurysh

LYFT by Nurysh

This small device is ideal for cleansing the skin and massaging the contours of the face. It stimulates collagen, lifts, firms and tightens while delivering a glowing, youthful complexion. More expensive than others mentioned, the Nurysh product retails at $190 (depending on where you buy it from) but it does deliver a superior facial massage experience.

Using micro-vibration and seven technologies it’s easy to use and targets acupressure points with circular motion.

My Sweety Hot and Cold Facial Massager

My Sweety Hot and Cold Facial Massager

This cheaper facial massage product by My Sweety retails at just $40 (depending on where you buy it from). It is entirely portable and hand-held, delivering sonic electric pulses that tighten up the skin while promoting a glowing, youthful complexion.

This massager is different to the others mentioned here as it uses hot and cold sensation. Both use sonic vibration and sooth the skin of tension, reducing redness and even getting rid of facial pain. The cold treatment (-42 Deg F) shrinks pores so skin looks brighter and smoother. The cold setting is also great for relief of sunburn. The hot mode promotes better blood circulation and helps skin to look tighter with less visible fine lines.
