We all love to go to a spa in our leisure time. Getting a massage done not only relaxes the body, it also detoxifies you and gives a glowing and radiant skin. When we want a radiance on our face, we go for a facial massage. However, what if I tell you that you don’t need to go to the parlor to get a facial massage done?
That’s right! It is very easy to give yourself a facial massage. All you need is a massage cream or even better to get a facial kit to revitalize your skin.
Why do You Need a Facial Massage?
Facial massage has several benefits for your skin as well as health:
- It enhances blood circulation in the body.
- It relaxes tired, strained and stiff muscles of the face.
- When you massage your forehead and temples, it deeply relaxes the brain, relieving you from stress.
- It unclogs your pores and removes dead skin cells.
- As the ingredients of your massage cream or gel penetrate into your skin, it detoxifies the blood deep within your skin, making you healthier and lighter.
So a facial massage not only revitalizes your skin, it also makes you feel healthy from within.
How to Choose the Ideal Facial Massage Products?
Giving yourself a facial massage is not at all a difficult task. You need to know which massage cream or facial product will suit you the most and buy yourself one accordingly. Now before you buy yourself one, you need to know what kind of a facial product will suit your skin:
For a mature or ageing skin
A product that tightens the skin and is capable of preventing as well as removing signs of ageing. Products rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin K are best for getting a youthful skin. Oshea Herbals has 3 products for skin tightening and moisturizing:
For oily and sensitive skin
You have to be very careful if your skin is oily. Mostly, oily skin is prone to pimple outbursts, especially when you exfoliate your skin. You should use products that absorb extra oil from your skin and tighten pores so that you do not get pimples. Oshea Herbals Pearl Facial Kit contains pearl powder that acts as an antioxidant.
For dull and dry skin
Even dry skin can be very sensitive. It is more prone to rashes and sunburns. It requires nourishment and moisture to bring out a natural glow. Wheat germ oil, aloe vera and jojoba oil are very good moisturizing agents that also nourish the skin with necessary vitamins and minerals. Oshea Herbals Wheat Care Wheat Germ Nourishment Cream is a very good massage cream for young, dull and dry skin.
For blemishes and dark spots
For tan removal and fairness
Skin tone darkens when the production of melanin increases. Licorice is a substance that controls the production of melanin and lightens the skin tone. Giving a massage to your face using a substance that contains licorice and other herbs adds a brightness to your face.

How to Massage Your Face By Yourself?
Now once you find a suitable product for your skin, it is time to understand how you should go about the process:
1> To prepare your skin for massage, first you should always cleanse it deeply. Any make-up or dirt should be removed. Apply the cleanser on cotton and rub it on your skin till your face appears absolutely clear. Splash some water on your face after doing so.
2> Next, you take a scrub and exfoliate your face. You rotate your hands in clockwise and anticlockwise directions on both your cheeks for a minute. If you have blackheads or oil on your nose, you scrub along both sides in upward and downward direction till it feels lighter.
3> You wash your face with warm water for a fresher face.
4> Now you finally take the massage cream in your hand while your face is still wet.
5> You take the massage cream in your hand and rotate it from the cheekbone up to your mouth and then in reverse direction.
6> You rub your fingers along the forehead and then rotate them around your temples in clockwise and anticlockwise directions.
7> Then you come down to the nose and rub along the sides, slowly coming down to the upper lip and chin.
8> You tighten the skin and rub your fingers horizontally along your chin and upper lip.
9> The entire process should take place in not more than 15 minutes.
10> You wash your face with cold water and as you slowly dry your face with a towel, you find a fresh and clear skin on the mirror.
11> For a more enhanced brightness, you can apply a face pack or a face mask on a dry face and wash it after 10 minutes.
12> Hydrate your face with a serum to get an instant glow.
