Known as the spoon facial massage, this inexpensive beauty step’s mainstay is a spoon. It is a great way to de-puff and massage your face. Doing this regularly results in a firmer and sculpted face in the longer run. Similar results are also achieved when one uses a jade roller or a Gua Sha.
This facial massage requires
An essential oil (could be coconut, olive or peppermint oil)
Ice cubes in a bowl
Here’s how you go ahead with the massage
Clean your face and apply a facial oil that suits your skin type. This massage begins by working from the top and moving towards the bottom of your face.
Beginning from the centre of your forehead, hold your skin taut and move a spoon in an upwards motion while applying light pressure. The upwards motion is suggested because as we age our skin begins to lose its elasticity. Doing so helps slow down the process.
Next, hold your cheek taut and press your spoon against your jawline and move it towards your cheek in upward motion. Do it twice. However, be careful of the amount of pressure otherwise it will lead to bruising.
Lastly, dip your tablespoon in cold water and press the bulbs of the spoon against your shut eyelids. This helps to de-puff your eyes.You can also solely follow this step to de-puff the remaining parts of your face.
The entire process takes about 10 minutes, but trust us, it is way better than a regular facial massage!
