The 5-minute facial massage for beautiful skin

The cold weather, wind, ice, and snow are here in many parts of our country. And, harsh winter weather can spell trouble when it comes to your skin, leaving it dry and lifeless.

However, there is good news…

A product that beauty experts have been raving about has now been proven to leave your skin healthier and with a more youthful glow with just five minutes of use — even better, it can deliver lasting results.

Research shows that by age 70, Nitric Oxide production declines by up to 75 percent! But supporting healthy N-O levels isn’t as easy as taking a nitric oxide pill. The body needs nutrients to produce N-O on its own — and that’s why… MORE⟩⟩


Widens vessels and increases blood flow to your skin

The product I’m talking about?

Facial massagers.

If you haven’t heard of them, they can range from jade rollers to battery-powered hand-held devices. And, they’ve become a huge beauty trend over the last few years and with good reason with everyday women all the way up to beauty giant, Elle, recommending them for facial “revitalization.”

Now, a new study from the Institute for Liberal Arts, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) along with Tokyo Healthcare University and the Research and Development Center, MTG Co. Ltd has proven that we all should be using them if we want the best skin possible.

The researchers conducted short- and long-term experiments in both men and women to examine the effects of using a massager on your face.

In the short-term experiment, they found that even a five-minute facial massage can significantly increase the blood flow to your skin by up to 25 percent.

And, according to the researchers, one surprising outcome was the duration of this effect — with that increased blood flow lasting for a full 10 minutes after the facial massage ended.

This is important since beauty experts say, circulation is important for even skin tone, healthy detoxification of your skin and to ensure the cells of your skin get all of the nutrients they need to keep it clear, prevent wrinkles and ensure a glowing, radiant complexion.

Even better, in the long-term experiment (with daily massage over a five-week period), the researchers discovered that facial massage improves vasodilation or widening of the blood vessels to your skin, a reaction the researchers think could be due to the fact that it encourages the cells in your vessels to produce more nitric oxide.

And, blood vessels that are wider equal better blood for radiant skin.

The circulation secret to gorgeous skin

If you want to love your skin, it makes sense that improving circulation will help. It is, after all, considered your largest organ. So that means there is a lot of territory to cover and you want all of it to benefit from the oxygen and nutrients your blood carries to your skin cells.

The first way to do that is through facial massage like in the study above — five minutes each day.

But, here’s a hint… It’s not the only way.

You can also improve your circulation and therefore the health of your skin with simple, natural supplements.

In fact, there are two supplements I recommend above all others when it comes to enhancing blood flow.

They are:

Vitamin K2 – K2 helps shuttle calcium to your bones where it belongs, keeping it from stiffening your vessels and compromising your blood flow. A big plus for the rest of your body: The famous Rotterdam study proved that people who take the vitamin have the lowest levels of calcium in their aortas, lower total cholesterol, and enhanced blood flow.

CoQ10 – CoQ10 is one of my favorite supplements of all time and is important to every cell in your body. Even better, it’s your secret weapon to boosting your blood flow and with it the health of your skin. According to a study published in the medical journal Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy, an astounding 91 percent of patients with blood flow problems experience improvement within 30 days of starting CoQ10 supplementation!
