Facial acupressure (along with affirmations) is a great way to give yourself a non-surgical facelift and encourage facial rejuvenation.
With these four simple acupressure points, you can experience glowing skin and a calmer mind.
The 4 Acupressure Points
Between the Eyebrows
While breathing deeply, bring your pointer finger between your eyebrows and press gently on this acupressure point. As you press on this point, close your eyes, and continue breathing deeply. This acupressure point can reduce stress and headaches, as well as reduce tension on your face. When you reduce tension on your face, it makes it appear more youthful and helps soften frown lines.
Affirmation for this first acupressure point, is “I am calm, balanced, and centered” three times before moving on to the next movement.
Above The Eyebrows
For this acupressure point, move your two pointer fingers out so that each one rests above each eyebrow. Try to center your finger at the arch of the eyebrow. Close the eyes again. This boosts circulation on your forehead, which makes your face appear brighter.
For this acupressure point, say, “I am glowing inside and out” three times.
Move your fingers to your temples and close your eyes. You should have one pointer finger on each temple side. This acupressure point is excellent for relieving headaches and stress.
Repeat the affirmation “I am enough” three times before moving on to the last acupressure point.
Sides of the Nostrils
Finally, move your pointer fingers to the sides of your nostrils. Don’t put your fingers directly on your nose. Instead, place them so that the finger pads are on your cheeks, but the sides of your fingers should gently touch the nostril sides. Close your eyes and continue breathing. This acupressure helps the sinuses and relieves inflammation in the eye bags.
The last affirmation, is, “I feel happy” three times.
Next time you feel like you need a gentle and natural facelift, practice these four acupressure points. Perform these acupressure points when you are stressed or need a mental lift too.
