As the years pass, it causes us to lose elasticity and firmness in the.face and it is a normal
process of aging.
However, if we adopt preventative measures and provide special care it is possible to slow
down the aging process and, above all, prevent the signs of premature aging.
At the age of 30, our skin tends to be tender. Sun exposure, contamination, diet and problems with hydration are all factor that contribute to early loss of elasticity and firmness of the skin.
Renée Koch, a German doctor and dermatologist, recommended a remedy to tighten our skin.
This is the teaspoon massage.
The teaspoon massage technique is very simple and it only takes 10 minutes a day. You are
going to need a few teaspoons, a glass of cold water with ice cubes and a bowl of hot olive oil, flaxseed oil or sunflower oil.
1. Free your face from makeup and apply your regular moisturizer. Tablespoons should be
disinfected with alcohol and soak them in ice cold water.
2. Place cooled tablespoons on your upper and lower eyelids.Let them stay for a few seconds. Repeat this process for five times. Replace them with cold ones if it is already warm.
This will prevent the puffiness and dark circles.
3. Soak the tablespoons in some warm oil. Now you can start massaging your face. Apply
some mild pressure and move the tablespoons along the following lines:
§ From the forehead, start at the point between your eyebrows to the temples and hairline
§ In a circular motion, apply on your eyelids; start from the inner corner and then back to the initial point
§ 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
§ Massage every line for at least 10 times
Try to apply some more oil if it doesn’t glide easily. For 10 minutes, massage your face. Start off with 1-2 minutes and increase the duration for a minute every day.
