Unusual Face Massage With Honey

unusual face massage with honey

There are so many lotions, creams, and serums on the market that all promise a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Most cosmetics target the surface of the skin, but the real improvement lies in caring for the supporting muscles underneath our skin. When we improve our skin’s structure, we make a real difference in our face’s appearance.

So I was intrigued when I saw a video of a woman who did an unusual face massage with honey. I use honey regularly and love this superfood, so I decided to try it to see if my face loved or hated it. Before I share the results, I’d first like to explain the process.

What You Will Need

You will need only one ingredient – about a teaspoon of honey. If possible, use raw honey. Raw honey is medicinal and has superior healing qualities with all the vitamins, minerals, and beneficial enzymes intact.

The Massage Technique

First off, you’re not going to slather the honey on your face and rinse it off after a while. The secret is in what you do with the honey, the technique.

First, wash your face and neck area and then apply the honey to your damp skin. Now for the technique.

Ever so gently press your skin with your fingers and quickly lift them off. It’s a simple movement, but it may seem awkward at first. But keep at it, and you’ll soon realize that you are doing it efficiently. You will be working very deeply to stimulate the muscles in your face and neck.

After the massage, rinse your face and neck with warm and then cold water, making sure all the honey is removed.

A final step is to dip a cotton ball in a mixture of equal parts apple cider vinegar and water. This is your toner and should remove any honey and dead skin cells left behind. It should also balance your pH.

Once finished, I promise your face will look and feel fantastic!

What You’ll Notice

As you start the massage, you’ll notice that the honey will change in consistency. It will start to become more tacky as you continue with this gentle pressing and lifting off of your fingers. As you do this honey massage, your fingers will maintain a rhythmic “lifting off and on” that is simple to perform.

You’ll also notice that your skin will be “manipulated” a bit and start to take on a rosy hue. This is what you want because the pulling action is encouraging more blood flow, and the underlying muscles and tissue are being stimulated and exercised. It will reduce any puffiness you may experience.

As proof that this massage is removing impurities and toxins from the skin, you’ll notice that the honey will start to take on a grayish color as dead skin cells and wastes are removed.

Will The Massage Damage Your Skin?

You may be wondering if this technique will damage or stretch your skin and make your tone worse. On the contrary – our skin has a remarkable ability to rejuvenate. This honey massage will actually “wake” up tired and dull skin, and this is what encourages healthy skin and a youthful complexion.

The Benefits Of The Honey Massage

This unusual face massage with honey has loads of benefits:

  • Improve blood circulation to the face and neck
  • Encourage collagen and elastin production
  • The lifting action will Increase the flow of the lymphatic system. This will drain toxins and excess fluids from the area.
  • The raw honey is antibacterial and antifungal, so this massage is excellent for the skin. Honey is also a humectant—it attracts water. So it’s an excellent way to provide moisture to the skin without added chemicals or heavy oils that block the pores.

My Experience With The Honey Massage

My skin loved the massage. It was very rejuvenating, and I saw results after just one time. It was sort of weird massaging the honey on my face after a while because it felt tacky, like glue. But after doing the massage a couple of times, I got used to it and knew the results would be amazing.

If you try this massage, I’m sure you will get similar results. You’ll feel as if your face had just returned from a workout at the gym!

I love it. And I think you will too!
