Try This DIY Facial Massage To Keep Your Skin Glowing

There’s no doubt that we faced a major shortage of facials during the pandemic’s lock-down of 2020.

Anyone who has tried to maintain their skin at home knows how daunting it can be to try and replicate the effects of a professional treatment.

While nothing beats the results of a properly executed facial and professional massage, a DIY version is the next best thing and it's easier than you might think.

BENEFITS OF A FACIAL MASSAGE

Just like working out in a gym helps keep your muscles toned and tight, your face needs regular workouts too! 

Facial massage helps to stimulate circulation and brings oxygen and nutrients to the surface. It can be done morning or at night time and is a great way to build on your current regimen and achieve a healthy youthful glow.
