A facial massage at a day spa can cost upwards of $50, but check out WTH’s tips for a DIY (and free!) facial massage. This 10 to15 minute routine can be done while you cleanse your face or anytime of the day, so tie your hair back and get your hands ready for some action.
Cleanse your skin. According to WholeLiving.com, wash your face with a creamy cleanser and rinse with warm water. This opens your pores and increases blood flow. Try Origins’ Cheeks and Balances face wash ($18.50, 5 oz.)
Pick a moisturizer or essential oil. While you can definitely give yourself a facial massage sans moisturizer or essential oil, using it will give your skin an extra boost and help the products sink in faster. Drugstore.com has a huge selection of moisturizers and essential oils that can brighten, tighten and revitalize your face.
Get massaging. If you’re using essential oil, pour some onto your palms and rub your hands together to warm the product. Do the same if you’re using a moisturizer. The following steps can be repeated and be sure to use more product if necessary.
