Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How often should this massage be done?
It can be done safely every day. If you wake up with a puffy face, then this is a great time to do the massage to remove the puffy look.
Q: How long should the massage be done?
Generally the massage only takes about 3-5 minutes. You can treat yourself to a longer massage of 10-20 minutes if you want, but this is not recommended for those who have acne.
Q: What type of massage cream should I use?
Use a natural cream or oil that does not absorb into the skin quickly. A plain oil like sweet almond oil or coconut oil have enough “slip” to last through the massage and prevent any friction.
