This Japanese Facial Massage Will Make You Look 10 Years Younger

This Japanese Facial Massage Will Make You Look 10 Years Younger

Do you wake up in the morning with a puffy, pale face?

Many people notice that their face looks different in the morning. They look into the mirror when they wake up, frowning at their ‘morning face’. They feel like they look tired and older in the morning, and they try lots of solutions to fix the problem. From expensive make-up to even more expensive plastic surgery, there are lots of ways to try to make yourself look younger. Unfortunately while you can apply make-up every day, in the long-term this is more likely to age your skin than repair it.

Tanaka facial massage helps you look younger in two weeks

Instead of looking for a way to hide the problem, there is a solution that actually makes your skin look younger naturally. A swollen, pale face is caused by poor circulation of blood in the face. With the help of Japanese Tanaka facial massage, you can make yourself look younger in only two weeks.

Japanese Tanaka facial massage was created by famous beautician Yukuko Tanaka. Her massage helps to lift up the face, making you look younger and more refreshed.

Tanaka loosens the facial muscles and removes wrinkles

Tanaka is a process that quickly removes wrinkles while tightening your skin. The massage stimulates the lymph glands in the face, speeding up the removal of toxins and excess fluids. Slowly you loosen up the facial muscles throughout the massage, before pushing the toxins and fat towards the lymph node in front of the ear. This removes the toxins from your face, draining them through the neck.

Before giving yourself a Tanaka facial massage, it is important to find creams and oils that work for your skin. If you use the wrong type of cream for your skin you may develop pimples or an itchy rash. You can use the face cream you already use or you can try olive or almond oil.

Massaging your face without any cream will drag your skin along with your fingers, which can cause more damage. Read about the benefits of facial massage here.

1. A facial massage will help with stress

Modern life is filled with frustrations and pressure, and for some people feeling stressed out is simply a way of life. Facial massages help you to relax and de-stress by giving you some enjoyable alone time. You can also focus on pressure points to help eliminate headaches brought on by stress.

2. A facial massage will give you glowing skin

If you always admired flawless skin, try a 10 minute facial massage twice a week. Facial massages give you healthy, glowing skin by removing the toxins. This hydrates your face, making it seem less puffy and more luminous.

3. A facial massage minimizes uneven pigmentation

Uneven pigmentation is caused by impurities in the skin and decreased collagen, resulting in an uneven skin tone. A facial massage will help to replenish moisture and remove the top layer of dead skin cells, which helps to even out the skin tone.

4. A facial massage helps to remove broken capillaries

When a blood vessel in your face is broken, a small red or purple line appears through the skin. It can be tough to get rid of broken capillaries, but a gentle facial massage with almond oil helps to reduce the visible skins of broken capillaries.

5. A facial massage helps your skin to stay wrinkle-free

Wrinkles are caused by a depletion of collagen in the skin, which is made worse with facial expressions like frowning. A facial massage stimulates collagen production, helping to fill in wrinkles and smooth out your face.

6. A facial massage increases circulation

Bad circulation makes your face seem puffy and pale. Massaging around your mouth, eyes and eyebrows will increase your facial circulation, making a puffy face a thing of the past.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
