Research shows that a 5-minute facial massage for a set period of time can significantly improve blood flow and help brighten the complexion. A facial massage stimulates the lymphatic fluid and detoxifies the skin of the face. The lymphatic system is the combination of tissues and organs in the body that remove toxins and other waste products from the body.

3. Anti-aging benefits
Facial massage can reduce the appearance of fine lines and help achieve a smoother texture. When your facial muscles tighten, they can cause wrinkles. A facial massage relaxes these muscles and makes wrinkles less visible. As blood circulation increases with massage, collagen production increases. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin firm and prevents it from sagging.You can massage your face for five minutes every day. But do a professional beauty session once every 3-4 weeks. This is your skin’s renewal cycle, and a facial massage once every 28 days ensures smooth and even skin.
