Push The Pesky Toxins
It is now time for you to push the pesky toxins out, and do so by gently rubbing the area between your eyebrows (your third eye), all the way down to your nose tip. Imagine exhaling the toxins out through the nose, with the help of your fingers. Emulate a sweeping motion when practicing the same- repeat five times.
Flick Your Chin
A flicking motion should be indulged in and from the chin upward to the lower li. This helps uplift areas around the mouth. This is also helpful in making the skin around this area produce more collagen too.

Use The Corkscrew Like Movements
From the nose sides, push outward with your fingers and palms in a gentle manner to drive the pesky toxins away. And from the corners of your lips, all the way to the temples above, you should start pushing away the imaginary toxins using the same movements once again! Repeat five times for each side!
Focus On The Tension Points
It is around the eyes where stress can be seen the most, and these areas are called the tension points too. Most stress is accumulated here, which is why a facial massage around this zone is a must. Start by gently rubbing the area at the tip of your brow bone, sweeping towards the outside of the brows. Repeat five times per brow bone!
Bring back your fingers from the brow bone in a very gentle and slow manner, and place them under each eye. Close your eyes and gently tap the lids, five times. Take a deep breath and relax.

With the help of Japanese facial massage techniques, people in Japan aren’t opting for surgery anymore to attain a facelift. It is one of the best kept holistic secrets, which can be done in the comfort of your home. You may or may not use creams too. And the best part is, apart from your palms and fingers, you wouldn’t need any special equipment for the massage too.
