How to do anti-ageing face massage in 4 minutes

Celebrity facialist Abigail James shows you how to do anti-ageing face massage in four tiny little minutes – making it quick enough to do every day

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Use a natural plant based oil for the massage, get a couple of pumps of the size of a blueberry, warm and the apply it to the whole of your face
  • Press it, include neck and decollate, and glide it across
  • With this lifting massage we are going to do a few lymph moves first and then pumps: stretch your neck backwards, stretching the muscles down
  • Gliding across the whole face starting with your thumbs under your jaw, pushing back and hold
  • In this particular massage there is a bit of face yoga inspiration: gliding under and stretching outwards, and pinch – all these moves are fantastic for the jowly bits
  • Right to the ears and then to lift up, hold and then push
  • As we age we often get lines around our mouth, we’re going to massage around this quite firmly, working all the way around
  • Then, when you get to the bottom, hold at the chin and push up
  • It’s nice if you have a relaxed jaw because it means you can actually get into the muscles easier
  • Hold and push up, and take that stretch all the way to the side of the face, stretching up and then lifting up – the hold is really important to encourage those muscles where we want them to be
  •  Do it to both sides
  • You can hold this for five or ten seconds or even longer, then taking those holds and lifts for our crows feet areas and also up to the brow
  • Do some zigzags across the forehead, working on those thrown lines and across, not forgetting the middle lines almost some stepping with your fingers to erase those
  • Lift the brows and smooth out (it’s nice to do lots of face pressure points, instead of worrying about specific pressure points), and just press it and hold with a little bit of and upward lift
  • Smooth it all back down the neck and finishing with some neck stretches.

green-people-age-defy-cell-enrich-facial-oil-healthista-shopTRY THIS: We love Green People’s Cell Enrich Facial Oil 30ml £32 a pure blend of oils that benefit the skin. It’s particularly rich in jojoba, sunflower, rosehip and evening primrose oil and has great ‘slip’ for facial massage but isn’t too greasy to be worn under make-up. It leaves no oily residue and gets absorbed fast.
