Facial Massage: Natural Face Lift
Would you be interested in a truly natural face lift? Let me warn you: My beauty routine is as radical as my raw food diet. But it works: I’m 52 years old and I am getting great results. Let’s start with a note of caution. To use this technique that I am about to show you, you need to have healthy skin.
No breakouts. No Botox. No collagen injections. If you had any cosmetic surgery or any other procedures done, please consult your doctor before applying this technique. If your skin is sensitive or you have acne, pimples or other blemishes, start addressing these issues from the inside first—with proper raw-food nutrition that will restore your skin to good health.

When you wake up in the morning, you may notice your skin looks puffier and washed out compared to the night before. This is because sleep decreases circulation in your body…which means less blood flow to your face. My facial technique is a great way to get your circulation going again and give your face a healthy glow.
This technique that I am going to show you relaxes your facial muscles …but at the same time energizes your face. You can perform this technique anytime, anywhere. All it takes is 2 to 3 minutes…and it’s very easy! Remove any surface dirt or skin makeup with your favorite cleanser. You can leave your mascara on because we will not be touching the eye area. Make a fist—like this. You can keep your thumb on the inside or outside. It doesn’t matter. See these knuckles? They’re going to be your major massaging tool. Before you begin, apply a good moisturizer lavishly. I am using my own anti-aging cream with sea buckthorn oil called Your Right to Be Beautiful. It is very soothing and it has just the right consistency for this procedure. You can also try using a little vegetable oil instead. Let us get started. Be sure your face is well covered with a cream or oil of your choice.
First target your forehead to reduce those horizontal lines. Pay attention. In this facial massage we are using horizontal, vertical and circular movements. Massage your cheekbones…for better definition. Rub deeply and firmly to develop these muscles and get those rosy cheeks. Massage around your nose to unclog pores and prevent blemishes. Rub your chin and jowls to prevent or reverse sagging. Massage vigorously to give it a more defined and youthful appearance. To make jawline look sharper and more pronounced. Massaging your neck promotes muscle tone and prevents sagging—great for eliminating the double chin.
This technique trims fat and expels toxins. It clears your complexion and gives it a polished look. This is a deep tissue massage. You are strengthening underlying muscles, that would lift your entire face. This technique greatly increases circulation. And it is your healthy blood that is capable of rejuvenating your skin. We all want to have a glowing complexion.
But what is glow? Skin glow has a lot to do with how light is reflected. If a surface of your face is rough and wrinkled, the skin will not reflect light and you look older. The smoother your skin, the more it behaves like a mirror. As a result, the surface of good skin has a shiny and glossy appearance. Perform this facial technique every morning and you will quickly tone your facial muscles. Try it and see it for yourself. It’s ideal for releasing tension, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and building that radiant glow.
