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 Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
