The last time you weren’t stressed was most likely when you were in diapers. Fast forward 30-plus years and you’ll notice that stress surrounds us in our personal and professional life. It can be challenging to get through a day without feeling overwhelmed or anxious about one part or another of our extremely busy lives.

Stress is a huge part of why we age faster. Our facial muscles contract during stressful situations and over time wrinkles and other skin problems arise. Stop right now and really look at your skin. Do you break out more when you are under pressure? Does your skin become overly dry or oily? People rarely think about the face when their stress levels increase. The first thing many do is schedule a full body massage, skipping the most visible part of the body—the face.

A facial massage is one way to keep skin young. By manipulating facial muscles fluid is released and blood circulation increases allowing the body to get rid of toxins. A facial massage also feels great. It’s a win-win situation.
