At-home massage techniques designed for healthier skin

Home Massage TechniquesWhether you’ve vowed to make 2019 the year of self-care, or you want to tone and tighten your skin for the Summer, home massage therapy can be highly beneficial. For those interested in effective at-home beauty treatments, we have compiled a list of the most popular massage techniques in the mainstream beauty world that you can perform at home. 

When setting off for a Summer holiday, fears of exposing cellulite can put a dampener on the experience. However, as well as the usual anti-cellulite techniques, such as drinking lots of water and detoxifying your body, massage can also be hugely beneficial. A deep tissue massage at a salon works to reduce cellulite by rolling and suctioning different parts of the body to restore circulation. While this massage technique and regular treatment will not rid the body of cellulite alone, they will help diminish the appearance and help prevent further deterioration of the tissues.

For an at-home massage treatment, use a cream or oil and mimic the technique using firm, circular pinching movements from the lower leg upwards.  If you’re looking for a little extra help, use a scrub vigorously in the shower that contains sea salts containing minerals that are detoxifying which will also rid you of dead skin cells – giving you a healthy glow and helping make your legs appear smoother. While it’s definitely not a relaxing treat, after a few treatments you’ll be ready to hit the beach in no time!  

Facial massage is the secret every skincare guru relies on, and just like the body, the more you move your facial muscles, the more lifted and tightened your skin becomes. Recently becoming a cult product in the mainstream beauty world is the ancient Chinese ‘gua sha’ tool.  To use the tool, stroke it across your face in different directions and areas. It not only aids skincare products in further penetrating the skin, but it will also help to boost blood circulation and stimulate the skin. Another tool that helps to de-puff the skin, reduce inflammation, and brighten your appearance is the infamous Jade facial roller. Using the same Home Massage Gua Sha and Jade Rollermovements and technique, this tool is renowned for being a quick-fix workout for your skin, helping to sculpt and naturally contour your skin. We don’t need any more convincing! 

Whether you use it when you wake up as a morning ritual, or a wind-down at the end of the day, this at-home massage is not only meditative, but it is also a great way to sneak in some self-care. Thanks to its collagen and immunity-boosting results, no wonder this self-treatment ritual has become a staple in achieving toned, glowing skin. 

Whichever technique you decide to try out, the most important part is to incorporate it into your daily routine so that you can fully reap the rewards. What is five minutes out of your day when you could have tightened, healthy skin?
