A heavenly face massage is relaxing, sure, but it also improves blood flow which means that more oxygen and nutrients are delivered into your skin cells. This stimulates collagen and elastin production, so your skin maintains its firmness and elasticity. Also, it boosts lymphatic drainage, ensuring the efficient removal of excess fluid and waste products.

Pick a quiet time, maybe just before going to bed, to do a face and head massage. Because the last thing you want to do, of course, is to rush about. Feeling stressed nevertheless? Do a few breathing exercises to calm down first. Then wash your hands and cleanse your face.


You can do your face massage without using any products, but if you want your fingers to glide more easily across your skin, you could apply a hydrating face mask, for instance, or a serum before starting your massage.


Start with the front of your neck:


Start under your ears, by your lymph glands and massage downwards in circular movements along the jawline. Repeat in the opposite direction.


Using the palms of your hands, gently massage your skin from your collarbone towards your chin. Using upward movement optimises blood flow.


Chin and nose


Place your fingertips in the centre of your chin and massage your way across your jawbone in circular motion to your ears.


Place your index fingers on either side of your nose and gently stroke outwards, towards the corners of your eyes.




Warm up your hands by rubbing them together. Close your eyes and place your hands flat over your eyes, fingers closed. Leave them for a while and then remove them. Open your eyes and blink a few times.

Lightly tap your fingertips around your eye sockets. Make gentle upward movements from the inner corners of your eyes towards your temples.




Place your fingertips between your eyebrows and then stroke your eyebrows towards your temples.


Gently pinch the skin at the base of your eyebrows (above the nose) and lightly knead your eyebrows with your thumbs and index fingers, massaging your way outwards.




Place your hand on your forehead horizontally, by your eyebrows, and massage your skin with upward strokes.


Place your fingertips in the centre of your forehead and gently stroke outwards. Move upwards in gradual movements until you have massaged the whole of your forehead in lines.


Massage your temples in circular movements with two fingers. Start clockwise, then change, moving counter-clockwise.


Don’t forget your head and the back of your neck


No proper face massage is complete without also massaging your head, shoulders and the back of your neck. It’s the only way to really loosen up those tense muscles!


Place your hands on your head and with your fingertips, massage it in small circular movements, front to back.


Gather your hair back, as if you were putting it into a ponytail, and gently pull it. If you want, make some circular movements.


Raise your shoulders to your ears as you breathe in. Hold your breath and keep your shoulders raised for a while and when you breathe out, gently drop your shoulders back down.


Grab the back of your neck, with your left arm placed behind your head, and then knead it (gently!) from top to bottom towards your collarbone. After a few minutes, change sides.


Stand up and shake your hands and arms to really loosen up all your muscles!
