I wrote a facial massage song,
to go along with my facial massage routine.
I did this for myself, and I hope it is helpful for you if you choose to practice facial massage for lymphatic drainage at home, or if not you get a really good laugh:)
These are some of the tools I have to help with facial massage but I also believe your hands are sufficient, plus you always have them with you:)
You can use many facial oils to do your face massage, just make sure to avoid mineral oils. I used Rose Oil from Trader Joes but there are so many great oils for your skin such as Apricot Kernal Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Grape Seed Oil.
I'm sharing this vibrating Gua Sha tool that I have because:
#1, I love the vibration on my skin as I move it across my face.
#2, some models also put out heat which could be a nice feeling as well.
# 3, this Gua Sha tool stood out to me among the sea of other face tools and its available in nearly Amazon Market.
MY FACE MASSAGE ROUTINE
MOTIONS WITH SONG
Fingers lift up forehead, alternating position as they lift up back and forth across forehead.
Pinch your eyebrows and around your eye orbital bone to your cheek and back up.
Take your ring finger, press in the inside corner of your eye and then slide gently under eye to your temple and then down to neck.
Lightly pinch around your crows feet area in a Figure 8.
Using your pointer finger, now lightly draw a figure 8 around your crows feet.
Pick up your Pointer and Middle finger, make a V, and stab and release from around your eyes.
Use your finger around your nose, push up to your brow and then release.
Then use your hands to push from your chin area up to your cheeks and then pull laterally towards your ears to drain down.
Make a TEEPEE with your hands, thumb under your chin, then pull towards your ears.
Hands flat and together, horizontal on cheeks, fingers tips at nose, pull wide towards ears.
Make your hands into a pinching formation, with thumbs under your jaw and fingers down into palms, slide hands up from chin toward ear putting pressure on jaw bone.
Next, open your hand, thumb is still under your jaw, from center of chin slide up toward ear, hand pressing under chin and against face, then all the way up to your ear, cradle it for a second with some pressure.
Place hands on forehead and pull to the side of face and then down to help drain all of the lymph fluid you just released.
Make sure to drink a full glass of water, this will help in flushing and excreting fluid and toxins.
Tell me if all this info helped. Do you appreciate the song, the steps and the printable documents?
Thank you so much for being here and I hope this inspires you to pamper yourself today.
