WHAT IS FACE WORKOUT AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
Over the past year, you probably have established an at-home beauty routine to make you look and feel at your best, but nothing can beat that toned, sculpted look you get after an in-salon treatment. But have you ever asked yourself why you cannot get the same results at home? Hint: it’s not the bright light of the bathroom or the hum of household noise holding you back. Including some intensive facial manipulation techniques into your skincare routine can help your skin look at its best before summer.
What is FACE WORKOUT?
Decléor’s new FACE WORKOUT aimed to be a natural alternative to other lifting procedures, with results powered by hand and activated by essential oils. Exclusively created by expert French facialist, Aline Faucheur following many years of studying Japanese massage movements, a FACE WORKOUT is a unique lifting and re-shaping routine for the face that can be performed in the salon, in stores, or at home.
How does it work?
Your face is made up of 21 muscles and massaging these muscles can help maintain skin firmness and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We have developed a number of at-home daily routines that have different targets depending on your skin type. These steps will increase blood circulation and oxygen supply, giving your skin a plump, healthy appearance and that much sought-after natural glow. Incorporating these deep pressure facial massage steps into your routine on a regular basis can result in a lasting transformation of your skin.
What are the other benefits?
A FACE WORKOUT can help get the most of your products, and, if used between appointments, can prolong the effects on an in-salon treatment.
Aside from the manual lifting effects, adding in elements of a FACE WORKOUT to your routine can provide a reset for the mind. The combination of physical connection with your body and aromatherapy benefits of Decléor products creates truly holistic experience, allowed you to relax and reset.
How to add it into your routine?
While we always recommend making an appointment with your Decléor consultant for best results, we have wanted to bring you three of our favorite techniques that you can start using today for plumped, lifted, revitalized skin at home:
Breathing exercises at the start of your routine is essential for triggering your parasympathetic nervous system. For instance, when the exhale is longer than the inhale, this respiratory cycle helps slow down the heartbeat, which provides a relaxation response on the mind and the body. Start by massaging a small amount of Neroli Bigarade Hydrating Night Balm into the palm of your hands before gently cupping them over your face for three seconds, inhaling deeply and longest exhale to benefit from the anti-stress effects of the essential oils.
Smoothing has the dual action of both lifting and draining the skin, so is perfect for the mornings when you may feel puffy. With three drops of Green Mandarin Aromessence Glow Serum, use the palm of your hands to gently push up from the neck and over the jawline with firm pressure. Do this repeatedly on one side before passing to the other. This movement will help firm the skin whilst boost lymphatic drainage for reshaped definition.
Flicking consists of gently tapping areas of your face to increase blood flow to the muscles. This is important as blood flow stimulates collagen production which is essential in helping the skin maintain firmness and for keeping fine lines at bay. Using three drops of White Magnolia Aromessence Anti-Aging Serum, tap your fingertips gently around your cheek and eye bone.
No matter your skin type, there is a 3-minutes FACE WORKOUT to help you achieve your goals.
