Facial massage and tools are popular these days, flooding our feed with rose quartz stones and dewy skin. With any skincare product, the ingredients are essential, such as the frequency of use, and application.

Anti-Aging and Anti-Wrinkle Techniques
Use a facial massage tool or two fingers and follow the arrow in the picture. These tissue-stimulating movements will not only improve blood circulation for a natural glow but also aid in the absorption of the all-natural ingredients in the Personal AM & PM Face Oils and Age-Delay Lifting Serum to let the botanical active sink in and work for your skin.
We recommend having a skincare ritual, taking the opportunity to massage your face every time you do your skincare routine.
Incorporating the proper facial massage techniques into your daily skincare routine can be the secret not only to improved radiance but to a firmer, wrinkle-free face. How so? First off, kneading the skin improves circulation, which brings "more blood cells to the skin, more oxygen, and better absorption of products," explains esthetician Sonya Dakar. Certain methods can also smooth forehead frown lines and reduce stress and headaches, which, in turn, can minimize frowning and the resulting wrinkles, she says.
