Happy Tuesday Gorgeous!

Last week marked the start of New York Fashion Week, with dozens of designers showcasing their newest collections for Spring 2018. Fashion week is one of the busiest times of year for my skincare studio. Everyone wants to look their best while watching avant-garde designer’s shows and I love that I can play a small role in making them look and feel beautiful.

One thing is clear from viewing the trends strutting down the various runways: skin is in! It appears that makeup artists are choosing to showcase their artistic ability with beautiful eye makeup, while leaving the rest of the face fresh and bare. Though it changes from season to season, I absolutely love that there has been a shift from loading on pore-clogging foundation to working with the natural glow of the models’ skin. While I love non-toxic and cruelty free makeup, I always prefer to put an emphasis on good skin, so that you have a choice about whether or not you wear makeup.

Today, I wanted to share with you a tutorial on how to give yourself an acupressure eye massage that will help to relieve puffiness, brighten the eyes and increase circulation so that you’ll be able to rock bare, glowing skin and bright, well-rested eyes (with or without some cool eye makeup). Acupressure is an amazing modality in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which involves using your fingers to apply pressure to specific points on the body to stimulate healing and relieving tension. This quick massage will leave you looking rejuvenated even if you haven’t gotten a good nights rest or been keeping up with your water intake (both of which you should strive to be better about!).

Acupressure Eye Massage

Prior to beginning, I recommend cleansing your face with my Vitamin C Cleanser and washing your hands as well.  Preforming this massage with clean hands is key because otherwise, you’ll end up polluting your pores with more dirt and oil.

Pressure Point 1

Using the pads of your ring fingers (one on each side), gently press down on the inner corner of the eye (marked with a #1). Hold gentle pressure for sixty seconds.

Pressure Point 2

Using the pads of your ring fingers (one on each side), gently press down on the skin beneath your pupil (marked with a #2). Hold gentle pressure for sixty seconds.

Pressure Point 3

Using the pads of your ring fingers (one on each side), gently press down on the skin beneath where your eyebrow starts (marked with a #3). Hold gentle pressure for sixty seconds.
