What better way to start or end your day than to treat yourself to a pampering me-moment? Physical touch triggers the release of oxytocin, also known as the cuddle hormone. This lowers your blood pressure, slows down your heart rate and reduces adrenaline levels in your body. Put differently, your stress levels go down and you will 

experience a greater sense of wellbeing! But that’s not all: this hormone also has a positive effect on your nervous system, breathing, digestive system and memory.


Obviously, a face massage does a lot more than that. By massaging your skin, you stimulate blood flow. So, oxygen is circulated around your body faster, allowing nutrients to be delivered to their destination more quickly while also improving lymphatic drainage. The result is less fluid build-up so, good riddance eye bags, and harmful waste products are also removed more efficiently.


If you regularly have a good face massage, you will soon notice the lifting, rejuvenating effect this has on your skin. Massage boosts both collagen and elastin production, two structural proteins that ensure your skin remains firm and supple. And, the connective tissue massage also stimulates cell renewal.
