One of the ultimate secrets to maintaining a youthful and radiant complexion is facial massage. Facial massage has been proven to boost your complexion by relieving muscle tension, reducing water retention, and increasing circulation, which in turn leads to an increase in the skin’s natural production of collagen.
It helps to use a moisturizer, serum or skincare oil when performing a facial massage on yourself as it creates some slip to prevent any unnecessary tugging and pulling of the skin. Choosing the right ingredients for your massage is also very important as it can further aid in lifting, tightening and brightening your complexion.
INGREDIENTS FOR ANTI-AGING SKINCARE
Imortelle Millésimée, a rare golden yellow flower harvested in Corsica, France, contains a high concentration of anti-inflammatory and healing properties to stimulate the growth of new skin tissue. On the other hand, Jania Rubens is a self-regenerating form of seaweed known as red algae. By combining these 2 main ingredients with oils of myrtle, camelina, evening primrose and borage, you get a highly moisturising and luxurious, yet lightweight fusion that lifts, repairs and strengthens the skin from within.
FOR A SCULPTED JAWLINE
The L’Occitane Harmonie Divine Serum contains 5,000 micro-drops of Imortelle Millésimée pearls that are suspended within a water-based crystalline gel enriched with Jania Rubens. To sculpt and lift the face, rub 2 to 3 pumps onto your fingertips to warm up the product and gently pat it onto your skin. Patting and tapping will help to stimulate micro-circulation. Also press the product gently onto your jawline, under your cheekbones and the area under your eyes to encourage lymphatic drainage and reduce any swelling and puffiness.
FOR A RADIANT COMPLEXION
The Harmonie Divine Crème moisturiser has a cream-to-oil texture and has small molecules to penetrate easily into the skin for better absorption. Take your time in the evenings and indulge in a 5 to 20 minute facial massage (depending on how much time you have). Smooth a dollop of the cream onto your face and use gentle sweeping and lifting motions to massage the contours of your face. Allow the combined scents of myrtle, musk and Imortelle to relax your mind and soothe your senses.
L’Occitane Harmonie Divine Serum 30ml (RM880) and Crème 50ml (RM830) are now available at all L’Occitane outlets nationwide.
