LESS STRESS. MORE skincare.
Part of a routine facial is a “facial massage.” Body massage is a known way to relieve stress and help you relax because of positive psychological and physiological effects. Little research had been done on facial massage until a groundbreaking study published in the Journal of Biomedical Research. This study revealed that facial massage significantly decreases anxiety and negative mood and increases sympathetic nervous activity. This means not only can facials improve our skin but they are also providing the beneficial effects of stress alleviation and psychological relaxation.
