How to: Massage Your Face (The Muji way)

Facial massages are very beneficial. They improve blood circulation, tones down skin, releases toxins, enlivens your complexion, opens pores (thus, dirt that is clogged can be removed easily), lessens wrinkles and gives a smoother and supple skin. Another good thing about it, is that, it is all natural – no injections, no medications etc.

These pictures are from a brochure that Muji (That Japanese  retail store that sells furniture to note pads) gives out and I found them very helpful and interesting – I couldn’t help but share!

****Treat your skin with a special facial massage every now and then. On a clean and clear skin, apply Moisturizing Lotion, Cream, Massage Oils for a good facial massage. Massage before putting on your makeup or before bedtime.
