You can blame some of the creases on the pillow you slept on, but the lack of color and tone are the result of a nocturnal slow down in circulation.

When the body is in a deep rest it puts the brakes on the systems that pump blood and lymph around the body. At night, when the lymph drainage of toxins form and the tissues slow down, the waste builds up. Puffiness around the face, particularly the eyes, in the morning is just one of the more obvious signs of this; likewise, the relative pallor that follows the nocturnal slow down in blood circulation.

It is not only sleep that slows down circulation. During the day, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, shallow breathing and overexposure to pollution � all hazards of modern living � slow the drainage of lymph and flow of blood.

Facial Massage via exercise jump-starts both. A pinker glow is the obvious testament to improved blood flow. This is why a monthly facial is so beneficial. An acceleration in lymph action is less visible, but you can assume that if your face is a richer color the lymph has also been stimulated, since it vessels run closer to the surface of the skin, a fluid lymph system shows in a resilient immune system and a bright complexion. Half of the lymph nodes in the body are in the neck, so unblocking them has an immediate effect on the facial skin.

How does it work?
When you press or squeeze any part of your body, it increases circulation to that area. The face responds particularly well to touch as it is packed with small, sensitive muscle and so richly endowed with endings.

Tension, and to a certain extent age, causes the connective tissue between the layers of the facial skin and the facial muscle to become less supple over time. As a result habitual expressions such as frown lines, rigid jaws, pursed lips and staring eyes tend to become set as part of the fabric of the face. The gentle pressure of a facial massage can loosen up the facial muscle and allow them to learn to slide back into place more readily after being tensed. The cumulative effect is such that with repeated treatment your face will be left looking relaxed, and therefore younger. Also, because massage stimulates circulation to the face, your complexion will be toned and glowing.

The muscles of the face are extremely delicate. Massage can be tremendously beneficial, but if given too deeply or frequently, it can encourage the muscles to lengthen. So

�The comparative fragility of older muscles and
�Their adjacent tissues are important to bear in mind.

The scalp is a different matter and can be massaged quite vigorously without any harm, with many benefits for the face. Sensitive skin, which is typically fair and dry, should also be massaged with great care. It is more susceptible to the kind of surface damage that causes �broken veins� or couperose (which are not actually broken, but simply closer than usual to the surface, so more visible, and sluggish in constricting action).


Skin-type and Suitable Oils for Massage

Oil is required to provide a fine, slip surface for massage so that the skin is not pulled and stretched as you handle it. In principle, any pure vegetable or nut oil will do the job. Such oils can nourish and lubricate the skin in a way that others cannot, as they are more efficiently absorbed and warm the skin to maximize absorption. Although any oil can block the pores of skin that is very fine or over-handled, pure vegetable oils do not spread a suffocating film over the skin or adversely affect its own oil production. In addition, vegetable oils contain fatty acids and fat- soluble vitamins. Many are absorbed relatively slowly by the skin, so take effect over time. Choose cold-pressed vegetables oils, which are usually sold in health food shops.

Some vegetables
Oil are better suited to certain skin types than others. Broadly speaking, the drier your skin the more it will benefit from oils rich in saturated fatty acids.

Being thicker and stickier these are absorbed more slowly and curb water loss more effectively. Greasier skins require oils with a high percentage of polyunsaturated fats, which are thinner and quickly absorbed into the skin.

Additional key ingredients include Sea Buckthorn Berry, Sangre de Drago from the Amazonian rainforest, and Jojoba, Pomegranate, Argan, Olive and Coconut oils.

Balances oily skin
One question we often hear is �I have oily skin, shouldn�t I stay away from putting more oil on my skin?� Actually, oily skin benefits greatly from
Oil as it protects skin from free radical damage. Also, the numerous and important Omega 5 and other essential fatty acids contained in Oil that the body does not produce on its own will fortify and repair the skin�s natural protective lipid barrier, preventing skin dehydration and loss of epidermal water. Oily skin still gets dehydrated, so using Oil Escence will be the number one defense in eliminating this problem. Also, oily skin sometimes is problematic and experiences congestion, or blackheads, and it takes an oil to melt an oil. Helps eliminate future breakouts and heals what might have erupted or is causing inflammation deep in the dermis or on the surface of the skin.

Hydrates dry skin
People with dry skin will benefit immediately from the essential oils and nutrition in
Oil. Dry skin is by definition deficient in all nutrients, so this exquisite skin oil provides essential moisturizing ingredients to support production of collagen and elastin, restoring your skin to its natural, healthy balance.

Protects normal skin
No matter what the skin type, gender or ethnicity of our skin, we are all affected by free radicals caused by environmental toxins, stress, and the sun�s UV rays. Free radicals age and damage the skin, and the best protection is in nature�s best, skin-soluble anti-oxidants which make up the formula of
Oil.

Repairs aging skin
As we age, our bodies are shifting hormones and this has an effect on our skin. We can repair, rejuvenate, and add to the skin's supple, youthful glow.
Oil is imbued with nature�s own Croton Lechleri tree sap, also known as Sangre de Drago. This extraordinary sap from the Amazonian rainforest contains 90% proanthocyandins (OPCs) which are the most potent class of anti-oxidant compounds. In addition, studies have shown the presence of taspines in Sangre de Drago, unique nutrients that stimulate the migration of the fibroblast cells responsible for tissue regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin. Sangre de Drago activates new growth of healthy skin cells and is best known in the Rainforest as the �wound healer�. This tree sap actually rejuvenates the tissue so quickly that deep wounds heal without any trace of a scar.

Other key ingredients in
Oil is the extract of Sea Buckthorn Berry, a marvelously rich source of beta-carotene (more potent than carrots) and a rich source of carotenoids and pro-vitamin A and an excellent source of oleic fatty acids. Argan Oil has long been used by the French in their most luxurious skin care. Argan oil has the richest natural vitamin E content of all plant oils in the world. Essential fatty acids protect cellular integrity and affect cell fluidity, helping to prevent loss of moisture from the skin. They play a vital role in the formation of prostaglandin, a natural anti-inflammatory that reduces pain, swelling and inflammation, while stimulating blood circulation.

All of these compounds in
Oil support the production of new collagen and elastin to make the skin supple, youthful and vibrant in its appearance.


A 4-Minute Massage Routine

You can follow this routine after removing make-up using carrier oil or while applying your moisturizing cream. Once you have memorized the routine if should take no more than three to four minutes, so try to do it ever day. If you have a specific area that you need to concentrate on, incorporate one of the massages from the routine.

Pour just under a teaspoon of oil into one hand, rub it into both hands and apply the oil to your neck and face in long, upward and outward sweeping movements. Apply it very sparingly around your eyes, where the skin is most delicate, using the ring finger of both hands.

Using alternate hands, slide up your neck form the base to your jaw bone, turning the hands as necessary and working lightly over your windpipe. Cover your whole neck form ear to ear.

 

Using the first and middle fingers of each hand, slide firmly along your jaw line from your chin to the front of your ears. Your index finger should be on top of your jaw and the middle finger underneath.

With your fingers together and hands pointing up to your brow, holding the fingers straight, press firmly with the edge of your hands either side of your nose. Hold for three to four seconds. Repeat


Release the pressure slightly and, rolling your hands on to your cheeks, slide your hands outwards with your index fingers stopping in front of your ears and apply a firm pressure. Hold for three to four seconds. Repeat.
 

With your fingers held in loose fists underneath your chin slide both thumbs upwards symmetrically around the corners of your mouth, in under your nose, around your nostrils and lightly off over the tip of your nose.

With the middle and ring fingers of each hand, starting at the inner corners of your eyebrows, slide firmly outwards over your eyebrows and using your ring finger only, trace very lightly inwards underneath your eyes.

 

With the ring finger of each hand, slide lightly outwards over your closed eyelids and then lightly underneath each eye.
 

With your fingers together and the index fingers leading the way, alternately smooth your hands up to the hairline in a firm lifting movement, starting between the eyebrows and finishing at the hairline.

Close your eyes and, with the fingers together and using the whole of both hands slightly cupped to produce a gentle suction, apply a firm pressure to the face, holding for a second before releasing. Then, moving the hands outwards from the nose towards the ears, cover the whole face, moving the hands up and down to cover the area between the chin and hairline.

 

With your fingers together and using the whole of the hand, apply pressure with the right hand to the left side of the neck, working from the base of the neck to the jaw but avoiding the windpipe. Repeat with the left hand, applying pressure to the right side of the neck.
 

Massage Tips for Problem Areas

You can have areas of your face that call for extra attention. The following massage exercise can remedy or prevent such problem areas, and can be fitted into the 4-minute massage routine.

 

For a double chin ~ With the fingers, relaxed, use the thumbs to press into the muscle underneath the jaw, starting in the center of the chin and working outwards towards the angle of the jaw bone.
 

For jowls ~ Using the flat middle and ring fingers of both hands alternately and treating one side at a time, work on the muscle of the checks with a rolling, lifting movement, and almost flicking the muscle upwards.

 

For wrinkled lips ~ Smiling to stretch the lips taut, and anchoring the middle finger of your left hand on the left corner of the mouth, use the middle finger of the right hand to make small, circular movements all the way along the edge of the bottom lip. Then swap hands to use the middle finger of the left hand and repeat the circles on the edge of the upper lip.
 


For frown lines between the eyes ~ With the index and middle finger of your left hand supporting the skin in an upward v-shape, apply small circular movements with the ring finger of your right hand between the eyebrows.

For open pores on the nose and between the eyes ~ With your middle or ring finger, make small circular movements all over and around your nose. Start by working around your nostrils, over the tip of your nose and up the sides of your nose, finishing on the bridge.

 

For crow�s feet ~ With the middle or ring finger of each hand, make a crossroads shape where the crow�s feet are emerging by tracking a horizontal then a vertical line, alternately working with the middle fingers of each hand, out from the corner of your eye and up towards the temple.
