Face Massage

Massaging your face can help prevent new tension lines and wrinkles from appearing. It does this by relaxing the muscles and by stimulating the blood vessels under the skin. You should cleanse your face thoroughly before you begin. Follow the steps described below. 
      1. Start by stroking the whole face. Use both hands and work 
        up the neck, out across the cheeks, then glide gently      
        inwards, work up and out over the forehead. Finish by       
        applying gentle pressure to the temples.
2 . Stimulate the skin by using the back of your hands and loosely rolling your fingers up the cheek. This can also be used on the neck and under the chin.
3. With your thumb and forefinger, gently pinch the skin along the jawbone and under the chin. This is very stimulating and helps prevent a double chin.
4. To release tension around the eyes, firmly squeeze the eyebrows with your thumb and forefinger. Always work from the bridge of the nose towards the temples.
5. For  tension in the neck and shoulders make firm circular  movements working up either side of the neck then out across the shoulders
