Ever dreamed of getting a facelift at a famous beauty clinic nearby your house? You probably thought of it a lot of times. Even so, there’s no harm thinking about it. However, facelift methods are too costly most of the time. Clinics offer packages with regular sessions, so you have to come back more than once or else you’ll just waste your money.
According to the most recent figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a facelift typically costs $8,005. This average cost does not include anaesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. Indeed, staying young is quite an expensive habit.
What if you could save the $8,005 and instead do techniques while sitting on the couch, watching TV or simply before going to bed? Beauty lessons are available on social media sites, especially on TIktok and Instagram. These videos explain how people can give themselves a facelift without breaking the bank.
All you need to do is follow these steps and you’ll feel and look younger in no time.
First, stick to your regular skincare routine – especially the serum and moisturizer. Before anything else, make sure that you cleanse your skin gently and you apply the serum as well as the moisturizer. This will allow your fingers to smoothly glide across your skin. More than that, it will not pull or tug your skin which can cause micro tears, especially for the older generation.
You may opt to use additional carrier oils that work wonders for your skin. You can choose either almond, avocado or jojoba oil. Combining them may also work for you as these oils are natural and do not harm your skin.
Then, once you have done the skin prep already, you have to know how to do facial massage the proper way. Modern beauty gurus suggest using tools such as guasha and jade rollers. If you do not have access to them, it would be better to use your own hands.
Here are some easy steps to follow for your DIY facial massage:
- Sweep the tips of two or three fingers (usually the pointer and middle, or ring and middle) from the center of your chin up and out along your jawline. Knuckles can also be used. Before moving on to the next area, do at least 5 to 15 strokes (more if desired) on each side. If you want to do both sides of your face at once, use both hands.
- Repeat the motion with broad strokes from the corners of your mouth out toward your ears, then from the sides of your nose to your ears, and from your nose to your temples.
- Sweep across your cheeks, then just under and above your brows, and from between your eyebrows.
Although good skincare and facial massage helps a lot, there are times that you have to add more effort to vanish those fine lines and wrinkles.
The last step includes using a facelift serum that not only instantly rejuvenates your skin but gives a glow even after hours of staying outside.
Why do you still need to follow this step? The first two steps focus more on toning your skin, but applying a facelift serum will last their effects longer.
