The Ultimate Guide to Korean Facial Massaging
Lately it seems like every time you open Tik Tok or Instagram, there’s a new buzzy beauty craze. From face-lifting concealer hacks, to ultra-fluffy brows, there’s always a must-try trend.
Currently trending in a major way? Facial massage. Everyone from micro influencers, to models, to celebs have been jumping on the bandwagon. But make no mistake, not only have facial massage techniques been here for awhile, they’ve been perfected for years by Korean beauty experts.
What Does a Korean Facial Massage Do?
The benefits of Korean facial massage techniques are endless, but include covetable results like correcting facial asymmetry, releasing jaw tension, and of course, an overall sculpted, lifted appearance. Imagine if you could combine the glow-giving results of a facial, plus the face-sculpting results of a thread lift (without spending serious cash)?
The secret to the Korean facial massage is working out, or activating the muscles in your face, via rigorous massage and key movements. By kneading your muscles, you’re bringing blood flow to your face, creating lymphatic drainage, and stimulating collagen production, AKA massaging your way to luminous, super glowy skin.
Did you know there are 42 individual muscles in your face? And just like your glutes, quads, and triceps, they need to be exercised to remain in tip top shape. Dull, tired, sagging skin = fine lines and wrinkles, inflammation, and an overall stressed-out complexion.
Take Your Korean Facial Massage to the Next Level
At Skin Camp, we’ve revolutionized the standard facial and give your skin what it really needs—a workout. Taking inspiration from techniques like Korean facial massage, we specialize in facial massages that not only rejuvenate and refresh skin, but send your facial muscles to bootcamp, for real results in as little as 15 minutes.
With non-invasive, innovative treatments like Microcurrent Lifting, Oxygen Therapy, and LED Light Rejuvenation, you’ll get the workout your face needs, without going under the knife.
And in true LA fashion, we go all out, rolling out the pink carpet to create a fun, highly ‘grammable experience in our West Hollywood studio. Can’t make your way to LA? We’ve got everything you need to recreate the Face Camp experience at home. Here’s our three of our favorite workout must-haves:
The first step in a face workout? Making sure your skin has enough “slip”. Instead of tugging at muscles (and creating more damage), give your hands and tools a moisture-rich surface to work on. Apply 1-3 pumps of this luxe facial oil before massaging skin.
Drop and give us 10—minutes that is. Yup, just 5-10 minutes of upward and outward strokes along the contours of your face is all it takes for real results. This roller mimics the claw-like Korean jaw massage technique, but instead of using your hands (and risking carpal tunnel) simply massage this roller across your face. Best of all you can get in a workout while you binge-watch.
SKIN GYM ICECOOLIE ICE ROLLER
Finally, tighten skin and get the benefits of a cold-therapy treatment with this portable, lightweight, and travel-friendly facial roller. You can even pop this bad boy in the fridge before use to super-charge results. The cooling sensation feels soothing and refreshing on skin, just roll upwards and outwards, even taking it down to your dellocotage area.
