My clients have experienced the anti-ageing results of a regular professional facial massage for some time now. However, newly published research lends more credibility to my work.
Deeper penetration & Longer-lasting effect of active ingredients
A review published by the University of California suggests that massaging the skin helps the penetration of active ingredients, rubbing increases the intake of actives into the skin and their retention – making their effect long-lasting.
Reduced sagging of the cheeks
Japanese skincare company Shiseido have shown that impaired function of lymphatic vessels with ageing leads to accumulation of subcutaneous fat, which causes skin sagging. Also age-related loss of the dermal anchoring structures contributes to this concern (see picture below).
Lymphatic drainage and specific facial exercises help to prevent/reduce sagging of facial skin.
The Autumn School of Facial Yoga
I will be teaching specific massage & at-home facial exercises to work on the sagging areas – among other facial exercise routines – at The Autumn School of Facial Yoga.

A blog about the active compounds mentioned in both research articles – licorice and pine extracts – to follow shortly. Also more details of the exercises involved.
