How to get glowing skin – 3-minute brightening face massage

Celebrity facialist Abigail James shows you how to get glowing skin with this brightening face massage to help your glow in only three minutes every day

HOW TO GET GLOWING SKIN – INSTRUCTIONS

  • Start by releasing the neck: the key for a brightening massage is the speed and depth of movement, so work deeply into your neck and shoulders. If you anchor your fingers into the neck just above your collar bone and stretch, you will be able to feel a stretch into the side of your neck, which should feel really energising
  • Then apply some oil to the face, you won’t need not too much for this type of massage because we want to create some friction on the surface of the skin. Take a small amount of an oil with something such as a pomegranate seed base and apply it to the whole of the face and neck.
  • Tap, don’t drum, all over the mouth and all down the neck quite firmly: it will stimulate the blood flow
  • Then push upwards actively moving the tissue up at the sides and taking it all the way up on the forehead as well
  • Lift the brow and try to hook under and push up the eye area
  • Go to one side of the face, lifting. If you get two fingers involved you can actually work deeper, creating the friction on the skin with deep and fast movements
  • Then on the crow’s feet do deep moves, keep pushing and brightening
  • Do some friction moves across the forehead, pushing up and then some flicking moves – if you let the jaw relax you’ll be able to get into the muscles easier than if you have a tighter jaw
  • Take this underneath the jowly bits
  • Smooth and push making deep circles to release the jaw
  • Finish with some full face push ups, brightening and energising the skin and then back down on the neck, with those neck stretches.
