(This is a great one to share with a partner).
Did you know...one of the most relaxing parts of a facial, is the forehead massage?
This is where we start the point between your eyes, and stroke back slowly towards your hair line. One hand follows the other and this creates a feeling of a never ending massage stroke...It feels divine and puts clients into a state of deep, calm relaxation. (Snoring at this stage is a good sign). 💤
Tension melts away from the forehead and the whole face softens.
Until you can get back in for your professional facials, try this routine for yourself. 👇
What you'll need:
A facial oil - you can use an oily serum, or use olive oil.
A sock filled with rice - about 1/2 cup of uncooked rice.
A drop of essential oil - any oil of your choosing. If you don't have essential oils to hand, you can use: Lavender leaves, Rosemary leaves, Lemon slice.
What to do:
Wash and dry your face.
Sit down comfortably, somewhere where your head can tilt back.
Apply a couple of drops of your facial oil to your fingers.
Start stroking back from between your eyes to your hair line, one hand at a time. Use slow, rhythmic strokes. Do as many strokes as you like - 20 - 50.
Then, take your sock with rice and place over your forehead. Place a drop of essential oil, or lemon to the upside of the sock.
Lie back and enjoy the feeling of gentle weight on your forehead.
