Easy tips for anti-ageing face massage
Looking young isn't all about expensive products and hours spent at salons.
In fact, keeping wrinkles at bay could be as easy as treating yourself to an anti-ageing face massage, something that you can do from the comfort of your own home.
Not only is it relaxing, but massaging the muscles in your face works just like any other muscles in your body - in that it strengthens them, making them firm.
Keeping facial muscles strong is important, as it ensures that the skin over them does not sag.
In addition, facial massage stimulates vital blood flow to the face, which brings back youth, vivacity and brightness to the skin.
Not everyone is blessed with the time or money that is required for weekly trips to the salon and thankfully, these trips are not necessary.
Indeed, anti-ageing face massage can be done at home.
Select an oil
First things first, select a lightweight oil to massage into your skin.
According to Tope Beesley, owner of Mahogany Naturals, oils high in vitamin E or sweet almond oil are great at significantly reducing skin blemishes.
Argan, grape seed and sesame oil are also good for the skin as they are not too heavy. Thick oils could clog up the skin and cause spots or blemishes.
Make sure that your face is completely free of make up - exfoliate for the cleanest face possible.
Apply a generous amount of your chosen oil to your hands.
Use only two fingers - the middle and the ring finger - to massage your face. Run your fingers in a circular like motion in strokes towards and away from the cheek bones.
If you get fine lines around your eyes, use just your ring finger around this area and be gentler.
Another tip for your forehead is to use the back of your hand, and roll your hand, as if opening and closing.
To relieve pressure on your forehead and sinus area, use the pads of your index and middle finger and press down firmly.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
