If you want to keep your beauty and youthful appearance, try this massage with spoons, recommended by Rene Koch, the famous German physician cosmetologist.
Facial massage is especially important for every woman aged over 30. That’s because the elasticity of the skin after this age begins to weaken gradually and subcutaneous tissue becomes stronger. In about 10 – 12 days you can achieve amazing results, if you implement this massage daily.
All you’ll need are some spoons (at least 4), a cup of cold water and ice cubes, and a smaller bowl with warm oil (I prefer coconut oil, but you can also use olive, linseed or sunflower oil).
Perform the procedure according to the following scheme:
Remove your makeup, wash with warm water and apply moisturizer. In the meantime, disinfect the spoons with alcohol and put them in a glass of cold water and ice cubes.
Close your eyes and put the cooled spoons on the upper eyelids. Hold for a few seconds. Repeat this five times. When you feel the spoons are getting warm, change them with cold ones. Do the same for the lower eyelids. This will help you reduce puffiness and dark circles.
The next step is to leave the spoons for a little time in heated oil and after you can begin the facial massage. Apply some mild pressure and move the spoons along the following lines:
- From the forehead, starting at the point between your eyebrows to the temples and hairline.
- On the eyelids with circular movements from the inner corner and back to it.
- Follow the lines on your cheeks, from the nostrils to the temples.
- From your chin to the temples.
- From the base of your neck to the chin.
- Repeat each movement 10 times.
Soak the spoons in oil again, when you feel that they don’t “glide” as easy as in the beginning. Massage your face for 10 minutes, but you may want to start off with 1-2 minutes and increase the duration for a minute every day, which means that only in day 10 the massage will last 10-12 minutes.
When finished, wash your face with warm water. For best results, repeat this daily for at least 10-12 days.
