Correct finger usage for product application can really enhance the facial features, bringing out the best results.
For Eyes – The skin around the eyes is the most sensitive, thus using the ring finger exerts optimum pressure. Put 3-4 drops of Under Eye Serum on the tip of the Ring Finger. Start making circles from the outer corner of the eyes, to the centre of the lower eyelid, towards the tear ducts. Repeat for about 3-4 minutes. This motion will help avoid/correct sagging, puffiness, dark circles and crow’s feet. Gentle motions increase blood flow and ‘wake’ cell regeneration. If Serum gets fully absorbed, use some more product to avoid pulling the tender thin skin.
Lips – Again tender skin. Too much pressure may lead to cuts on dry lips. Use the little finger for applying balms or exfoliation.
Forehead – Use the index and mid fingers together while applying creams from the brows to the hairline in upward strokes. This movement firms the forehead and lifts the eyebrows.
Cheek – Again use the index and mid finger and apply serums & creams in firm upward strokes from the chin to the temples. Never down. This will prevent saggy skin around the jaws in the long run.
Chin – Use mid and ring finger to massage in horizontal strokes.
Neck & Décolleté – All four fingers to massage this area. Move in downward strokes from the lymphatic area behind the ears to the shoulder blades. This helps releasing the toxin build up. For the front of the neck, move the four fingers in firm upward strokes from décolleté to the chin. Never down.
Jaw – For eliminating/avoiding that double chin, regular 5 min massage helps toning & firming the skin. Make a fist and place chin between the first two knuckles. Now move the fist in pendulum motion from ear to ear.
