With traditional facials the anti-ageing effect has always been attributed to the products whether a face cream, a massage oil or a dermal filler or other aesthetic procedure.
Since the beginning of the year I’ve been researching the effects of massage alone on the visible signs of ageing – no oils, creams or other products. For the experiment I developed a routine of specialised techniques that are known to stimulate the connective tissue just under the surface of the skin.
I was delighted to have 13 ladies (average age of 47) volunteer for the challenge! I asked them to assess five elements of their skin quality both before and after each of their 8 sessions, approximately weekly, and the results were surprising and positive:
- Skin softness improved by 29.2%
- Firmness and resilience improved by 21.2%
- Skin lustre improved by 26%
- Prominence of wrinkles and lines reduced by 26.8%
- Blemishes became less noticeable by 23.5%.
Everyone loved the facial experience and found it to be very relaxing; some described it as’ a meditative experience’.
This facial massage gives you a totally relaxing 30 minutes in your busy day helps you to look good on the outside and feel good on the inside.
