Eye Massage Techniques

Your eyes are one of the first things people notice when they look at you and unfortunately they are also where the first signs of aging appear. If you want to maintain a youthful look it is important to provide your eyes with a little tender love and care.

Benefits of Eye Massage

An eye massage is one of the best things you can do for your eyes because it delivers so many benefits:

  • If you have problems with sinuses/allergies an eye massage can improve blood circulation and relieves sinus pressure. Relieving these symptoms can also help reduce puffiness and dark circles.
  • The lymphatic system is positively affected by eye massage because it will speed up lymph drainage. Lymph is a bodily fluid that gets rid of bacteria by catching and then releasing it fromour bodies. Getting rid of toxins in the body can promote a clearer, brighter, more even skin tone.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles can be ceased with a simple eye massage. Targeting certain areas around the eye can help reduce stress, headaches, and tension. Many times when one or more of these things occur we squint our eyes and consistently squinting can eventually cause wrinkles around the eye, relieving these symptoms will cease squinting and reduce wrinkles.
  • An eye massage can also improve the way your products perform. Pressing formulas deep into your pores will allow them to drive through layers of the skin they may not have been able to normally.

Performing an Eye Massage

Carrying out an eye massage is simple all you need is two minutes and a product to create a slip, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • Begin with your finger at the beginning of the brow, sweep out and around the entire eye socket including the bridge of the nose. Repeat this motion 8-10 times.
  •  Find two pressure points, one directly above the eyebrow arch and the other below the   beginning of the brow and push firmly for 3 seconds.

  • Push firmly on the temples for 3 seconds.
  • Use the thumbs to activate the pressure point directly above the inner corners of the eyes, press the area cautiously then release, repeat this step 5 times.
  • Use your two middle fingers to rub the temples up and down for about 1 minute.
  • Place both index finger on the back of the head directly behind the eyes and massage for one minute. This area can be delicate so be sure to use caution when massaging the head.
