Topical products like anti-aging moisturizers and creams can help our skin to be healthier and appear more flawless and even. Before you apply any makeup you should be helping to nourish and maintain the biggest organ in your body, the skin!
Nature has a thing with circles – have you noticed? “From flowers, to fruits, and even the plants of our solar system there is symmetry and circular form.” Applying this theory to your topical skin care applications is a philosophy that Madame Spillmann began teaching her clients in Switzerland over 70 years ago. Circular massage provides warmth and increases blood flow to the skin helping to achieve a proper pH balance, moisture and overall healthy skin.
Start by dabbing a small sized amount of product onto to the middle of the forehead, rubbing gently in a clockwise motion and gradually expanding the diameter of your circle until you have allowed the skin to absorb all of the product. Next, following the clockwise circle, apply more product to the apple of your cheek, followed by the chin and next the other cheek. Use circular massage on your neck, arms and legs as well. Remember to gently massage the skin, pressing too hard or deep can cause redness and irritation.
Physical benefits to the skin from circular massage include:
- Stimulation of the skin and muscles beneath the skin
- Skin respiration improvement
- Skin tissue can be strengthened
- Skin tension and elasticity recovery
- Improved blood flow to the skin
- Natural cleansing, exfoliation of dead skin cells
