How to do facial massage against wrinkles on your own and what is the most effective technique

Good afternoon, dear readers. Which of us does not dream of preserving the beauty and youth for many years. Professional massage helps maintain skin tone. Alas, we do not always have extra money and time to visit a beauty salon. However, practice shows that facial massage at home from wrinkles helps no worse than procedures that are done by specialists.

There are many manipulation techniques. As usual, for my readers, I chose the most effective options, checking the effect of some on myself. No special knowledge or devices for self-massage at home is required, so all the tips you can put into practice.

Bit of theory

Massage, as a cosmetic procedure, helps to improve blood flow and lymph movement. Due to this, metabolic processes in the deep layers of the dermis are accelerated, the muscular frame is strengthened, puffiness goes away, the work of small vessels improves. The contours of the face become clearer. Massage is carried out strictly along lines repeating the lymph flow (their direction is indicated in the diagram below).

This precaution is necessary in order not to stretch the skin. Massage should be started after 30 years, so you can noticeably delay the appearance of age-related wrinkles.

The procedure is carried out on a cream or oil. The natural product can be further enriched with vitamins A and E, purchased at the pharmacy. So you not only strengthen the skin, but also provide it with nutrition. Before proceeding to the massage, it is necessary to cleanse the face of makeup and dirt, thoroughly wash your hands, collect hair under a bandage or headscarf.

Make a pre-warm compress to properly warm up the muscles. Before starting manipulations, take a comfortable pose in front of the mirror, try to relax. The movements should be gentle and delicate, especially for the area around the eyes. Treat not only the area of ​​the face, but also the neck, décolleté.

Methods and techniques

There is a great variety of facial massage techniques, but not all of them you yourself can perform correctly. Therefore, choose gentle manipulations that probably do not injure the skin.

Try a massage with ice cubes, which is carried out along the lines of the lymph flow. It is performed very simply. Pick up 2 ice cubes and drive them without pressure, first from the center of the forehead to the temples, then around the eyes. Move along the upper eyelid from the bridge of the nose, and move along the lower eyelid in the opposite direction.

Cheeks are massaged from the wings of the nose to the ears. Such a procedure will help get rid of edema, improve complexion, smooth out fine wrinkles. Note that the action of cold is contraindicated in case of rosacea (spider veins), inflammation of the facial nerve, and chronic sinusitis.

Just to the latter massage also refers. How does it work:

  1. Heats the skin, causes a rush of blood and oxygen.
  2. Enhances the effect of external care products - beneficial substances from them are absorbed faster and deeper into prepared skin.
  3. It serves as a kind of “warm-up” before the rejuvenating gymnastics for the face.
  4. It activates nerve fibers, restores their conductivity: spasmodic areas relax, and weakened ones connect to work.
  5. Improves the outflow of toxins from the skin.
  6. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, due to a deficiency of which the skin ages.

Best of all, massage works in conjunction with special gymnastics and anti-aging masks. All this can be done independently at home, and in the cabin - as the budget allows.

The principle of action and the effect of massage

Facial massage from wrinkles has a positive effect on the skin condition from the first day:

  • blood circulation in vessels under the skin is activated, so the metabolic process becomes more intense, due to which the skin receives useful components,
  • the production of collagen and elastin fibers occurs several times faster, which helps smooth wrinkles,
  • muscle tissue is strengthened,
  • swelling disappears
  • massage eliminates irritation and acne, which are caused by the proximity of blood vessels to the skin,
  • the skin relaxes, the tension goes away,

If you regularly massage your face against wrinkles (even at home), the result will be noticeable immediately: the old deep folds will become less noticeable, and you will also prevent the appearance of new ones.

Dessert spoons

Another interesting technique for getting rid of crow's feet and wrinkles on the face is massage with dessert spoons. The cutlery is placed in ice water for 15-20 seconds, after which it is applied to the upper and lower eyelids in turn, not forgetting to cool the metal every time before touching the skin. Manipulation is repeated up to five times.

After this, the spoons are moistened with almond oil and massage is performed according to the scheme below, starting from the forehead, then moving to the cheekbones and nose, nasolabial folds and the area around the mouth. Work out the second chin especially carefully, making movements in the direction from the center of the neck to the ear with pressure. The neck on the sides is massaged from top to bottom, and the middle is vice versa from below, avoiding the area of ​​the thyroid gland.

For more details, see the whole process in the video:

What effects should be expected from a regular and regular facial massage:

  • Tightened, firm skin
  • Spasms and wrinkles,
  • Smooth and fresh complexion
  • The decline of puffiness and puffiness,
  • Elimination of swollen eyelids, circles under the eyes,
  • Restoration of oily skin,
  • The narrowing of pores, the elimination of black spots and acne.

Therefore, massage is an effective method for both rejuvenation and giving the face a fresh and healthy appearance.

Do not think that you need to start doing massage only at the age of 40, when you realized that there are deep folds on your face. Such procedures are a wonderful way to prevent their appearance, which allows you to get rid of premature wrinkles and prevent their occurrence in the future.

The most important rule for hand massage is the cleanliness of the “apparatus” for massage (that is, hands), as well as the surface being massaged. Therefore, the list of rules for safe hand massage begins with this nuance:

  • wash your hands, cleanse your skin in any convenient way (wash with gel, wipe with a sponge and lotion / micellar water, etc.). For maximum effectiveness, you can steam the skin with a warm compress or over steam,
  • Use a massage oil that does not cause allergies. Do massage gently with warm hands and only along the lines and points that are described in a particular technique,
  • Do not use skin areas with warts or moles.

After completing special massage exercises, it will not be amiss to apply a nourishing cream or serum. You can do a hand massage at least daily, it certainly will not do much harm.

Massage lines (lines of lymph outflow) on the face

What is useful facial massage at home

Quite often, cosmetologists recommend doing facial massage instead of plastic surgery. Since this is a more profitable method, besides without unpleasant consequences. Using special techniques, you can reach the deeper layers of the dermis, thereby involving the production of collagen and elastin.

The benefits of massage:

  1. Achieving youthful and fresh-looking face.
  2. Oval Correction.
  3. Getting a new relief.
  4. The acquisition of soft and supple epidermis.
  5. Increased skin immunity.
  6. Blood flow improves and blood vessels strengthen.
  7. Wrinkles are smoothed.
  8. Swelling and swelling disappear.

How to massage the skin on the face?

If you want to learn how to properly massage your face from wrinkles yourself, the following simple recommendations are relevant for you:

  • 30 minutes before you begin to massage your face, make a hot herbal compress. The muscles will warm up and will respond better to procedures.
  • Remove hair with a headscarf or hoop so that it does not interfere.
  • Wash your hands and clean the dirt from under the nails to prevent infection under the skin.
  • Before the procedure, apply a cream or oil that is suitable for massage on the skin. However, remember that the surface of the skin on the face is sensitive, so it is prone to allergic reactions. Be sure to test the product before applying to the face.
  • Learn the direction of the massage lines that you need to move along. This is due to the movement of lymph. If you massage the skin without a specific order, then you risk stretching it and provoking the appearance of new wrinkles.
  • If you are moving from one area of ​​the skin to another, do it right. Fingers need to be pressed on the temple, which is considered the center responsible for metabolism at the cellular level.
  • The movements during the massage should be careful, especially under the eyes.

In order to make the result of the procedures more tangible, massage your face from wrinkles at home regularly. For example, a course can last 10 days in a row for 20 minutes. Then they take a break for a week, and after it continue again.

If you are just starting to massage your face against wrinkles, various video courses or an article on lymphatic drainage massage will help you.

For face skin, it’s easiest to use roller devices with several rollers that cover different areas of the face at the same time. Before starting massage procedures with the help of a massager, no one canceled the rules of cleanliness:

Varieties of Massagers

Anti-aging facial massage techniques (photos are needed for each technique below. Step-by-step photos are very welcome)

"Minds" of different generations puzzled over how to make massage as effective as possible. So there were more and more new techniques that can reduce deep wrinkles, minimize the number of facial expressions and tighten the oval of the face. Massage sessions are worth 28 years, if necessary, a little earlier (when age-related skin changes are already visible). Just like that, at a very young age, massage manipulations are not recommended.

Face renewal after massage courses

By the way, almost all types of facial massage, described below, are aimed at anti-aging effect. Techniques allow you to:

  • increase the tone of the skin, prevent the appearance of new age wrinkles,
  • to make lymphatic drainage and blood circulation better,
  • tighten the skin on problem areas of the face, “affected” by age-related changes,
  • rejuvenate the skin, relieve swelling of the eyes,
  • adjust the oval of the face,
  • get rid of the second chin,
  • reduce layers of subcutaneous fat.

Facial massages will also help slow down the aging process so that new wrinkles appear as late as possible.


The essence of procedures based on the use of massaging is that during exposure to the skin, stimulation of the ends of nerve fibers occurs. Such stimulation triggers a complex chain of neurohumoral processes, the end result of which is a change in the texture of skin tissues. Choosing this or that massage technique, you can purposefully improve the oval of the face, reduce swelling by improving the outflow of lymph, improve turgor and elasticity of the skin, or normalize secretion by the sebaceous glands.

Various peoples paid attention to the technique of massaging for many centuries, as a result of which a variety of techniques and methods was created.

As for facial massage, in cosmetology, Chinese, Japanese and anti-aging types of massage are distinguished. You can carry out cosmetic massage on a professional level or perform it at home, on your own. Professional massage can be obtained by contacting specially trained people who, without fail, have basic medical education. Home massage can be carried out without special preparation, however, you need to understand that the effectiveness of the procedure largely depends on the professionalism of its performer.

Depending on which area on the face you will massage, use one of the following methods:

  • From vertical wrinkles on the forehead. Place your fingertips on the center of the forehead, which is located above the nose bridge. Press your fingers on the skin and lead them to the temples. From this part, go back to the center of the forehead without pressing the skin. Repeat this ten times. This method helps to eliminate facial wrinkles, including premature ones.
  • From nasolabial folds. Put the middle and forefinger in the notch near the nostrils and press on this area several times.
  • Basic massage for wrinkles around the eyes. To begin, lightly tap the fingertips on the skin of the upper eyelid, then go to the lower.

It implies alternately handling such techniques: kneading and stroking, “finger” patting vibration and rubbing. The pads of the index and middle fingers are involved.

Directions of movements along the massage lines:

  • middle of the chin - earlobe,
  • wings of the nose - the top of the auricle,
  • upper eyelid from the inner corner - to the outer corner,
  • the middle of the forehead is whiskey,

The most popular anti-aging techniques and techniques

Even Avicenna said that a mechanical effect on the muscles and skin of the face has a beneficial effect on the body as a whole.The great healer characterized massage as a natural restorative and anti-aging power. Many years have passed since then, but the healing procedure has not been lost for centuries, on the contrary, new types and techniques of their execution have appeared, which are extremely popular today.

Procedure Efficiency

Women who seek to maintain their appearance at the proper level quite often massage their faces on their own, performing it at home. Regular home treatments are a very effective skin care method if performed competently. Performing a massage can have a rejuvenating effect and is considered to be an alternative to the surgical lifting method.

Often, facial massage against wrinkles is combined with various types of cosmetics - this method has the most effective lifting effect. In addition to lifting, cosmetologists recommend a facial massage against wrinkles. This skin effect is performed to prevent skin aging. Rejuvenation in this case occurs due to smoothing of the upper layers of the epidermis and at the same time stimulation of the muscular frame of the face.

The effectiveness of the home facial massage procedure is manifested in the following:

  • complexion improves due to stimulation of lymphatic drainage and improvement of blood supply to tissues,
  • the muscle layer is strengthened, the contour and relief lines of the face are tightened, skin elasticity is increased,
  • dead epidermis exfoliates and cleanses skin pores, improves skin elasticity, stimulates intracellular metabolic processes,
  • wrinkles are smoothed out, swelling is eliminated, dark circles and swelling under the eyes pass,
  • the procedure has a relaxing effect not only on the muscles of the face, but also on the whole organism.

In addition to a positive effect on the appearance and condition of the skin of the face, cosmetic massage helps to increase the body's immune defenses, improves sleep, has a calming and relaxing effect on the nervous system, and also improves overall well-being - headaches go away, cerebral circulation improves, blood pressure normalizes.

The massage results are influenced by many factors.

For example, it is most advisable to massage the face while standing or sitting, but with a straightened back, so that fluids (blood and lymph) have the possibility of free circulation. You need to perform massage along the massage lines, the effectiveness largely depends on the direction and strength of the applied pressure - you need to do all the manipulations smoothly and accurately so as not to stretch the skin and not provoke the appearance of new wrinkles or creases. The skin around the eyes requires a particularly careful approach - in this area of ​​the face you can not produce pressure and stretching.

The time of day and the duration of the procedure also matters. For example, if you massage your face in the morning, you can get rid of swelling and bags under the eyes, and improve complexion. Massage performed in the evening has a relaxing property, it improves the contours of the face and smoothes wrinkles. The whole procedure averages 10-15 minutes. This time is enough to activate metabolic processes in the skin and improve its condition.

Facial massage can be done at almost any age if there is evidence.

Specialists identify certain age groups, each of which has its own goals for massaging.

  • Starting from adolescence and up to 27 years, massage is carried out for oily and porous skin, as well as in case of acne and acne, but only outside the stage of exacerbation. The purpose of massage is the resorption of scars, skin cleansing, normalization of the production of skin secretion.
  • From 28 to 40 years of age, the procedures are aimed at improving metabolic processes, enhancing the production of elastin, as well as for regulating the epidermis’s moisture content.
  • From 40 years of age and older, massaging is performed to increase the tone of the skin and muscle structure of the face, as well as to smooth wrinkles and eliminate puffiness.

Massage treatments are recommended in courses. The effect of this course will be obvious if you conduct at least 10 sessions. Massaging can be carried out on an ongoing basis, for example, once a week. To increase the effectiveness of the technique, you can change or combine.

In addition to manual massaging, massage with the use of devices, devices and cosmetics specially designed for this purpose is very effective.

General rules

Self Massage Tips

Before conducting a home session, it is necessary to cleanse the skin well with cosmetics, hot compresses and peels. Compress can be made using herbal infusions of chamomile, calendula, mint, etc. This will improve blood circulation, soften the skin and prepare it for further study.

Then apply massage oil, nourishing cream or cosmetic milk to the skin. Some techniques do not use additional funds or require the application of cream, talcum powder or natural olive oil. Massage oils are selected taking into account the type of skin, technique and possible allergic reaction. When using natural products, an allergy test is first carried out, otherwise there will be more harm than good from the session.

For dry skin, you can use wheat germ oil, avocado, apricot kernel or coconut as a base. For a normal skin type, sea buckthorn, coconut, olive oil, shea butter, grape or sesame seeds are suitable. For oily skin, peach seed oil, bitter almond oil is good. As the esters, you can use any flavor or choose the oil, depending on its useful qualities.

The frequency of procedures depends on the individual characteristics of the skin, age, and the expected result. An intensive course usually consists of daily procedures that are carried out for 2-3 weeks with a week break. To maintain the effect per week, you can spend 2-3 sessions.

After the massage procedure, the remaining oil is removed with a soft cloth, and a nourishing cream is applied to the skin.

Massage the area around the eyes

If you want to massage against wrinkles around the eyes, remember that a one-time procedure will not give the expected effect. To support the area under the eyes in a healthy and radiant state, you need to do this every day for about five minutes:

  • Close your eyelids and place your thumbs on your upper eyelids. Finger pads should point to the nose. Breathe calmly and deeply. You need to put your thumb on the cheekbones on both sides, and with your index fingers touch the eyebrows. Open and close your eyes several times. This massage for the eyes from wrinkles relaxes the muscles and relieves the accumulated tension.
  • In order to restore freshness to the eyes, it is recommended to use the following massage option. Press the eyebrow with your thumb and forefinger. It is necessary to cover the entire area of ​​the eyebrow. Next, you need to touch the index finger over the eyebrow and pull the skin up, as if resisting the eyelids.Then you need to blink, straining the muscles of the eyes. The exercise is repeated three times. This is a useful workout for the lateral muscles of the eyes and an effective anti-wrinkle massage under the eyes.
  • Another anti-wrinkle massage for the eye area. Press the index fingers to the bridge of the nose on the sides. Click on the dots in this area on the face, gradually moving your fingers to the eyes. You need to massage up to 30 seconds. Thus, it is possible to increase the outflow of lymph, relieve swelling and remove the accumulated fluid under the eyes.

All areas of the face are involved, and the impulses from the massage reach the deep muscles. With systematic exposure, they soften, and wrinkle folds decrease or disappear altogether. Massage is carried out 1 time / day. It can be done on your own or just trust a specialist.

2.Japanese Shiatsu massage

Here is a more complex technique - you need to pointly press on certain areas on the face. Each zone has a maximum of 3 minutes, during which pressure and pauses alternate. These phases are equal, lasting 5 seconds.

Each side of the face is worked out separately. The pressure points are interconnected by light broken lines, or these lines go beyond the line of the face - this is how tension is displayed.

Chinese technology

Chinese facial massage for wrinkles is a way of influencing biologically active areas of the skin. The effect can be achieved by applying special means (for example, oils) on the face before starting the procedures. During the Chinese massage, you do not need to put pressure on the skin. Finger pads should simply glide over the skin.

During the treatment of the skin from wrinkles on the face, the process of tissue repair is launched, as well as the production of elastin and collagen fibers. As a result, the natural filling of folds and the improvement of the tone of the skin surface are activated.

  • Arrange your hands in such a way as if you want to wash and do not bend them, applying to the skin,
  • do circular movements with your eyes, often blinking,
  • close your eyes with your palms and lightly press on them,
  • put the thumb on both hands to the inner corners of the eyes and slightly press on these areas,
  • massage your nose with your index fingers
  • pat your eyes lightly over the eyelids.
  • massage your ear shells with your middle fingers

Japanese Anti-Aging Massage Zogan (“Facial Creation”)

It is aimed at working out the deep layers of the epidermis, muscles and even the bones of the skull, therefore it implies an intense external effect, which causes some pain in the patient. But it’s worth to be patient, since the end result exceeds all expectations: instantly the swelling disappears, the skin gets rid of toxins and smoothes, muscles are tightened.

It is interesting that such a massage is performed standing or sitting in a chair with a perfectly straight back. The movements have a strict focus, while the zones of the lymph nodes are processed gently and smoothly, without strong pressure. The final chord is the stimulation of the so-called beauty points for the full achievement of the lifting effect.


It has no age limits and is equally good for both women and men. Massage can be done for prevention and for the correction of already formed wrinkles. The most effective is the procedure performed in the morning. The session is carried out, standing in front of the mirror. Before you begin massaging, you must be well-versed in the location of the active points on your face, which will be affected.

It is carried out with the fingertips, the exposure time should be at least 7 seconds.

Before massaging, they are cleaned and steamed using a napkin moistened with a warm decoction of herbs to fully open the pores. Then a nourishing cream or massage oil is applied to the skin and a session is started. The first point is massaged with two hands - the fingers 2, 3 and 4 of both hands are placed in the middle of the forehead and smoothing movements toward the temples. Then go to the point located between the eyebrows, and smooth it in the same way with movements towards the temples.

Now we massage the paired points located in the region of the nose and the beginning of the growth of the eyebrows, smoothing the eyebrows of facial wrinkles. Then we find the middle of each eyebrow and act on the points located above the hair growth, thereby relaxing the muscles of the forehead. Then the points located in the region of the external corners of the eye are massaged, after which we move on to the points located in the temporal fossa.

To relieve tension in the muscles of the head, we massage the points that are opposite the center of the auricle - where the tragus is located. This area should be worked out especially carefully, since massage here prevents early wrinkles. Now we need to move our fingers to the area under the earlobe and find a hollow in the jaw - we need to massage it. In the future, you need to move your fingers along the corner of the lower jaw and go to the area of ​​the center of the chin. Massage at this point helps remove wrinkles near the mouth.

We find the points located in the corners of the lips and massage them, after which we need to go to the points of the wings of the nose, which are located near the nasolabial folds. The study of these points reduces the depth of the skin creases in this area. Next, go to the points near the inner corners of the eyes located in the area of ​​the lacrimal canal, and then you need to go to the points located under the lower eyelid in the middle of the eye - presses should be done on the bony part of the orbit. Thus, we worked out all areas of active points and performed acupressure.

Relaxing massage to reduce facial muscle tension

Our face is mobile, often reflects a lot of emotions. In the distant past, people could determine by wrinkles what a person’s character was. Wrinkles are a consequence of not only age-related changes and pronounced facial expressions, but also the consequence of overwork, tension of the facial muscles.

A relaxing facial massage, start from the forehead, gently pressing between the eyebrows, along the bridge of the nose. Then you should make smooth movements from the bridge of the nose to the forehead. You can turn on and massage the head, starting with the forehead, ending with the back of the head.

General rules for relaxing massage:

  • Eyebrow massage is done by lightly plucking the eyebrows and eyelids.
  • The skin of the eyes needs a gentle delicate massage. Knead the outer corners, and under the eyes.
  • The cheekbones are massaged towards the temples with tapping movements with your fingertips. Circular movements are suitable for tense places. The temporal muscles also require attention.
  • The muscles of the mouth are massaged with light pressure and patting movements.
  • In conclusion, gently pat on the face until a feeling of warmth appears.
  • Search for tense muscles and massage them additionally again.

If you feel constant tiredness, it is recommended to do this massage regularly (for example, daily at the end of the day).

Wrinkle Massager

A facial massager for wrinkles is a special apparatus for rejuvenating the skin, which normalizes blood flow in the dermis. The use of such devices has a number of contraindications:

Pinch by Jacques

The plucking technique is quite complicated for self-massage, but it is quite possible to master it. Cosmetic oils are inappropriate in this case. Make pinch massage along the massage lines, tweezed thumb and forefinger.

Massage mystery begins from the upper part of the face: between the eyebrows, passing to the forehead. Next, head to the eyes: in this area, gently massage in a circular pressing motion, alternating with stroking. Massage is further carried out from the nose (from the nose to the wings), passing to the cheeks along the massage lines, etc.

Lines for tweaks

Lymphatic drainage massage

The lymph that circulates in the vessels has the ability to collect and remove harmful substances from the body. If for some reason its stagnation forms, slags and toxins accumulate, which negatively affects the skin: swelling, unhealthy color, sagging and sagging due to excessive accumulation of fats appear. By making circular movements and pressures along the massage lines, stroking and shaking the skin, we thereby remove intercellular fluid, activate the movement of lymph, and tone the walls of blood vessels.

As a result, metabolic processes of the body are stimulated, water balance is restored, the skin is cleansed and begins to breathe freely, irregularities are smoothed. The only problem is a large number of contraindications, including diseases of the skin, heart, blood vessels, lymph nodes and oncology.

Pinch (Jacquet method)

It is considered not only an anti-aging, but also a therapeutic facial massage, as it normalizes metabolic processes and blood flow, thereby eliminating various skin problems. This is a rather aggressive procedure, during which painful tweaks are used: the masseur grabs, squeezes and kneads the deep layers of the epidermis with the thumb and forefinger.

This technology has many subtleties, without knowledge of which it can harm the patient, so the procedure is not recommended to be carried out independently. It is important to remember that such massage is contraindicated in a number of viral diseases, chronic dermatosis, rosacea and inflammation of the facial nerve.


Thai anti-aging massage is not very effective in its own performance. To get the greatest effect, it is better to use special tools that can only be found in "Asian" salons.

Start the massage by stroking the neck, moving up to the chin and to the ears. The manipulation continues with circular stroking movements along the cheekbones and cheeks, passing to the area around the mouth, nose, forehead, and temples. Near the eyes, tactics change: fingertips are stroking from the corners of the eyes, heading towards the bridge of the nose through the lower eyelid area. Then they return to the outer corner above the upper eyelid. Each zone should be given a total of 5 minutes.

  • We clap the cheeks with our palms. We perform 10 claps, by 5 claps, the intensity increases, and then it goes down again.

Forehead wrinkle massage

  2. It is necessary to start with horizontal stroking from the middle of the forehead to the temples. Repeat up to 8 times.

The reviews of those people who regularly do cosmetic massage of the face and neck indicate that this technique is effective, and its effect is obvious. Regular sessions help prevent skin aging caused by age-related changes. Therefore, it is advisable to start massage therapy courses at the age of 30 years. Lymph congestion and age-related changes in skin density worsen the appearance, therefore, in addition to the complex use of various specialized drugs, massage is one of the effective means that help prolong youth in the age group from 40 to 50 years.

At an older age, the effectiveness of massage may begin to decline due to the fact that not only changes in the skin and muscle layer begin to occur, but the size of the skull also changes, which is a prerequisite for sagging skin. In addition, the number of elastic fibers is reduced and the production of new ones is slowed down. These changes can be postponed for a long time according to the onset time, if you follow the procedures of care and massage.

Using massaging procedures, it is possible to improve the turgor and elasticity of the skin, keep the facial muscles in good tone, smooth out wrinkles and eliminate swelling. Experts believe that if self-massage does not provide proper efficiency, it means that something is not performed as required by the technique, or the technique itself was chosen incorrectly.

After her lessons, the technique received another name - Asahi, which means "morning sun." It consists of 12 steps, which are performed in a certain sequence, while working on the forehead, eye area, nasolabial triangle, cheeks, chin and cheekbones. The technique was called two-finger, as the movements are mainly performed by the index and middle fingers.


A simple anti-aging facial massage technique at home can be done every morning after washing. The procedure takes only 5 minutes and requires a few ice cubes. They hold light strokes throughout the face along the massage lines. Each movement should be slow, but delayed at any point is prohibited. To increase efficiency, you can use not water, but frozen whey, a decoction of mint, linden flowers, chamomile, dill or other medicinal herbs. Regular massage will help get rid of wrinkles in the eye area, strengthen blood vessels, increase skin tone and improve its color.

Mimic massage and its results

Man is an emotional being. We smile, laugh, cry, grieve and wonder, each time changing our facial expressions. During the day, the muscles of our face contract about 15,000 times, forming folds and creases on the skin. In youth, they quickly straighten and disappear without a trace, and in adulthood each time they become deeper and more distinct. Wrinkles are especially common across the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the mouth, in the nasolabial folds and in the outer corners of the eyes. But a sad situation can be prevented or corrected by regularly applying facial massage to the face:

  1. Apply a greasy or moisturizing cream to the skin - it will provide better gliding and prevent epidermal injury.
  2. We place the fingers of both hands flat on the forehead, provide immobility of the skin. Surprisingly raise the eyebrows, greatly straining the muscles. We maintain a position of 10 seconds, then completely relax. Thus, we get rid of deep transverse wrinkles.
  3. We try to move the eyebrows, while holding the skin at their base. This simple exercise helps to smooth out the "angry" fold.
  4. The area around the eyes is devoid of body fat, therefore, it needs special care: tapping with the fingertips, sevenfold pressing on the outer corner, light gliding movements along the upper and lower eyelids will help get rid of the hated "rays".
  5. Round and tighten your lips with all your strength, uttering the sound “O”. Relax.
  6. Without opening your mouth, make 30 circular movements of the tongue in each direction. The Chinese call this technique "mixing the sea."
  7. Pull your lips out like a kiss. Count to 5, then return to normal.
  8. Find the crease on the bridge of the nose. Smooth from its center down the wings of the nose.

Such a massage can be performed anywhere, even at the desktop: after all, it does not require special devices and tools. Repeat each exercise 5-10 times. After a month of regular training, you will notice how:

  • swelling disappears
  • folds lose their depth
  • sagging, and the contour of the face becomes clearer,
  • the skin becomes firm and radiant
  • muscles relax nicely.

But it is worth remembering that facial massage has a number of contraindications. Therefore, if you have open wounds, neoplasms, herpes rashes or skin inflammations, it is better to refrain from the procedure and choose another, no less effective way to rejuvenate the face.

We act on them with the pads of the thumb, index or middle finger strictly perpendicular, without rubbing the skin. Alternate light and strong pressing for 4-5 seconds. Hands should be warm. The first step, as in any technique, is the preparation of facial skin. We clean it, apply special products and try to achieve complete relaxation. After that, we proceed to the main part, working out each point indicated on the diagram:

  1. We produce light pressure on the inner corners of the eye. Perform the exercise 3 times with a short break.
