With age, the human body, along with other changes, reduces the production of proteins such as elastin and collagen. This becomes the reason that the skin begins to sag, the oval of the face changes, losing its clear contours. A swollen oval of the face is, alas, inevitable. But proper and timely care will help delay the appearance of this trouble or correct existing changes in the shape of the face. There is a whole range of measures to help tighten the oval of the face at home, which are quite simple, safe and inexpensive. The maximum and lasting effect can be achieved by combining several methods and providing the skin with constant care.
Face lifting massage
The first method for maintaining or correcting the oval of the face is massage. It improves blood circulation, helps the process of cell regeneration, improves tone and improves skin color. Massage can be carried out independently, it is enough to follow simple rules:
- warm up the muscles of the face before massage with a hot compress based on herbal decoctions;
- collect hair, eliminating their contact with the face;
- wash hands with soap, cleanse face with lotion;
- use hypoallergenic products (cream or oil) for massage;
- do not press hard on the skin during the procedure;
- perform movements strictly along the massage lines;
Remembering the location of the massage lines is easy:
- from the chin to the earlobes;
- from the lower lip to the earlobes;
- from the upper lip to the temples;
- from the corners of the mouth to the tragus of the auricles;
- from the middle of the forehead to the ends of the eyebrows;
- from the outer corners of the eyes to their inner corners.
Typically, a classic massage begins with barely perceptible strokes, followed by rubbing, light pinching and tapping. First, the forehead and scales are massaged, then the cheeks, cheekbones, chin and the so-called “second chin” area.
You can also perform patting with a damp towel and a hydromassage shower (alternating hot water with cold water).
Self-massage sessions are recommended to be carried out daily for two weeks, followed by a break of two to three weeks. If there is not enough time for a visible result, a 10-minute session 2-3 times in 7 days within a month is enough.
