We'd all love to book ourselves in for a facial massage to help keep skin looking its best but it's not always accessible. Experts say that for the maximum benefit from a face massage you really need them little and often. Our answer - give yourself a little bit of massage time before bed using your Night-Time Face Oil. Just five minutes every night can help your skin to look plump, glowing and full of life

Think of it a bit like yoga for the face - a set of individual moves that flow together to create a relaxing routine. Here are a few of our favourites for you to combine however you fancy...

1. The Pinch: Using the thumb and index finger of each hand, start at the innermost point and move along each eyebrow pinching very gently as you move outwards. Repeat five times.



2. The Loop: With the middle finger of both hands, touch your temples and rotate very gently in circular motion five times. Then using the same two fingers, move under and then over your eye, tracing the line of your eye socket carefully as you go. Circle using very light pressure five times.


3. The Ear Squeeze: Using each hand, start at the top of each ear, cup and squeeze gently - hold for the count of five.  Move down the ear in three or four step, squeezing and holding as you go.  End by placing you thumbs in the dent behind the bottom of each earlobe where it joins you neck and apply gentle, steady pressure to the count of five.


4. The Chin Walk: Using your index finger and middle fingers, start at the outer edge of you jaw, just under your ear.  massage using a circular motion five time then move slower along the jaw towards your chin, using gentle circular motions as you go. End by using one hand to massage the point of your chin five times.


5. The Cat's Whiskers: Use your three fingers of both hands for this one - using them to create a W shape.  Starting at the centre of your face, place the three fingers either side if your mouth (your index finger resting just above your nostrils, the middle finger at the centre above your lips and the third finger just below your bottom lip.  Slowly draw them away and outward, as if you were drawing invisible cat's whiskers on yourself. Repeat five times.




6. The Fork: Using the same three fingers of both hands, this time you are going to start at your eyebrows and gentle draw them upwards in to you hairline. Smoothing the brow-lines very gently across your forehead as you go. Repeat five times.


7. The Drop: End by pointing both thumbs inwards. If it help you stay steady, leave your elbows on a table . Then very slowly lead forward and drop you head so the fleshy bits of you thumbs are resting in the space above you eyes and below your brow. No need to apply pressure, just rest there for the count of ten. Take a few deep breaths and feel yourself relax.
