To get the results that you want from the products you are using, I have always advised clients to massage them into their skin. Massaging increases the effectiveness of the products, giving you better results than just applying them. By doing this, you help to detox the skin by moving the blood and lymphatic fluids, giving your skin that glow. Other advantages of this treatment is helping to increase firmness, decrease wrinkles, hydrate, ease muscle tension, and relax the nerves.
Facial massage needs to be performed correctly so as not to overstretch the skin or damage it somehow. The first thing is to always keep the skin moist with your product so you do not pull on it or drag it. You need to be gliding over the skin. As you can tell by the face above, the direction of the strokes are up and out. I always start at the neck, using both hands, doing a slapping stroke up to chin hand over hand. Next, if you want, under jaw with a pinching motion. Then the rest of the face is small circles gliding over skin in up and out movement. Pressure is medium. You can press a little and glide as long as your face is still wet with product. Do Not Pull Skin.
I recommend using your serum first and do a massage with that. When it starts drying, use toner to dampen. Then apply your cream and do the same massage. Spend about 2 to 5 minutes doing this treatment.
I do it at night which is best, because you repair at night and this helps even more.
Now a little trick that really works, any lines you have that you want softened, can be greatly improved. Again make sure that the area you are working on is moist with product and toner if needed. Put your finger on the start of the wrinkle and do small circles going up the line. Pressure again is medium.
That trick I have told clients about and when they come in for their next facial, there is a difference. It has to be done every day though. Always remember when doing massage on the face, to always have it moist through the whole massage, never drag the skin, use a little more than light pressure, and always up and out with your strokes.
If you need any help with this, please call or text me and I will be happy to guide you.

- Over the counter products are not made for an individual’s skin concerns. They are made to feel good, be easy to spread, and to smell good. Professional products — Pevonia — use active ingredients coupled with a specialized delivery system that helps the skin regenerate and be healthy.
- Skin irritation caused by dry air, temperature extremes (as we have now), sun, emotional stress, harsh ingredients in products, and strong exfoliants and peels when left untreated becomes inflammation that contributes to visible skin aging and skin diseases such as cancer.
- Adding a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to a pot of water or in a diffuser is great for loosening mucous. It’s a strong antibacterial and also antiviral.
