Here’s what Sophie at Earth, Wit and Style had to say: “Facial yoga/massage was one of the most popular google beauty searches of last year and no surprise really. We are finally waking up to the fact that faces are full of muscles and those muscles need exercising too. Apparently throwing your head back, mouth wide open, eyes screwed up in a guffaw is not enough??
Most facials contain a small amount of facial massage and it could be argued that this is the most beneficial part of the whole treatment.
On a really superficial level a good facial massage will stimulate the skin and increase circulation encouraging blood to the surface and drawing away toxins and impurities. All good to start with but a good therapist will be able to stimulate individual muscles in the face. Muscles that are usually left to their own devices and gradually atrophy causing the face to lose structure over time. A natural part of aging but just like we work out to stop other parts of our body drooping we can also work out our faces.”
