Face Massage

Ayurveda, translates to the knowledge of life in sanskrit, an ancient system of medicine that originates from India. As a holistic and healing treatment, Ayurvedics strongly believes in the ability to reduce risks of diseases by balancing the body, mind, and spirit, which is said to remove suffering and impurities. Although Ayurveda is practiced in several wellness related ways such as yoga, meditation, or diet, its techniques also happen to be extremely effective in caring for one’s facial and body health.  

Self Massage Benefits:

One critical component of India's ancient Ayurveda is the Abhyanga, which is the self massage method. Ayurvedic massage techniques, when done properly and nimbly, have tremendous restorative effects on improving the complexion. Relaxing yet penetrative, massaging one’s face and body in an Ayurvedic manner has many benefits. It decreases stress, toxins, and acne scars, enhances lymphatic drainage for glowing skin, and boosts one’s immune system and energy, so that the body can remain rejuvenated, and the mind can completely be conscious.

  2. Natural Retinol Serum
  3. Men's Fortifying Face Oil

How to: 

Simply with one or two drops of the non-toxic, all-natural oils above, use your fingers and lightly touch the skin by massaging the face and neck in a clockwise and circular motion for 5-10 minutes; this will result in an instantaneous face lift, toned cheeks, and less visible face lines. 

By indulging in an Ayurvedic self-massage, you will surely be calmer than before and glowing as a result of the body’s energy centers’ (marma points) stimulation, which allows for an influx of prana to ensue. The non-invasive self-massage technique leaves one's skin with an anti aging, rejuvenating, nourishing, and purifying effect that radiates from the inside out due to the botanical nutrients and healing properties.
