Beauty Alert! Here is an excellent routine to add to your skin care regimen, and will reduce wrinkles, prevent sagging skin, improve sagging skin, improve puffy eyes, under-eye bags, and more. It’s an anti-ageing and contouring face massage created by Japanese beauty expert Yukuko Tanaka. This massage can help you rewind time on your face by up to ten years!
- Use your fingers to stimulate the muscles underneath the skin and exercise the muscles.
- Make sure you press down with the whole of your fingers (do not use finger tips!)
- Facial massage oil necessary! If you do not use a massage oil you will pull and tug at your skin …..Ouch:(

Q: How often should this massage be done?
A: It can be done safely every day. If you wake up with a puffy face, then this is a great time to do the massage to remove the puffy look.
Q: Is this safe on young people?
A: Yes. This does not change your face structure or remove fat. This is for healthy circulation and reducing a puffy face. Often a naturally round or plump face looks fat due to extra water. This massage will remove that, thus it is safe for any age.
Q: How long should the massage be done?
A: When you get the technique learned, generally the massage only takes about 3-5 minutes. You can treat yourself to a long massage of 10-20 minutes if you want, but this is not recommended for those who have acne.
Q: What type of massage cream should I use?
A: Use a natural cream or oil that does not absorb into the skin quickly. A plain oil like sweet almond oil or coconut oil have enough “slip” to last through the massage and prevent any friction.
