It is unavoidable that the passing of the years cause us to lose elasticity and firmness in the face, because this is a normal process of aging. However, if we adopt preventative measures and provide special care it is possible to slow down the aging process and, above all, prevent the signs of premature aging. The skin tends to weaken especially after age 30, when it becomes more tender. Sun exposure, contamination, diet and problems with hydration are all factor that contribute to early loss of elasticity and firmness of the skin. It is for this reason that, from a very early age, we should pay attention to our skin and attempt to care for it in the best possible way so as to preserve the youthful appearance for a longer period of time.
Today there are a great variety of options for skin care and prevention of the signs of premature aging. In the search for the best tips to preserve a youthful appearance and maintain firmness of the face, we have found an excellent treatment that can make the difference in our beauty treatment routine in a notable way. It has to do with a spoon or teaspoon massage, recommended by the German cosmetologist René Koch.
What does the teaspoon massage consist of?
The teaspoon massage technique is very simple and as the title of this article states, it only takes 10 minutes a day. You are going to need a few teaspoons, a glass of cold water with ice cubes and a bowl of hot olive oil, flaxseed oil or sunflower oil. Below we will give you the step by step procedures for this excellent treatment.
Step 1. Completely remove all makeup from your face, clean it as is you would normally, and finally, apply a good hydrating cream. In the meanwhile, disinfect the spoons with a little alcohol and put in in a glass of water with ice.
Step 2. Place the cold spoons near your upper eyelids and keep them there for a few seconds. Repeat this same step five times, changing the spoons each time that they become warm. Perform the same process to your lower eyelids and you will see how puffy eyes and dark circles are noticeably reduced.
Step 3. Afterward put the spoons in the hot oil and, making sure they don’t burn the skin, use them to massage the face, pressing the spoons in a line during the massage.
