At Omorovicza, we’ve spent the past 14 years perfecting our facial massage techniques to bring you the most indulgent pampering experience in our spas. Now, we’re sharing our secrets, so you can perform your own relaxing at-home spa day. Here are our expert tips.
How To Give Yourself An At-Home Facial
A DIY facial should always begin with a healthy skincare routine. Start by cleansing your face to wash away any makeup or dirt (the gentle, purifyingCleansing Foam is the perfect indulgence), then hydrate and balance your skin with a toner (you’ll love Omoressence and its opulent formula). Next, choose your moisturiser. We’d recommend:
For a luxurious DIY facial in your at-home spa, use these facial massage techniques employed by our expert Hungarian therapists around the world. Each one helps to rejuvenate and revive your complexion:
The scissor lift: Working from the lips to the ears, use scissor-like movements to squeeze and lift the skin.
Upward circles: Create upwards circular motions along the cheeks, forehead and around the eyes using your second and third fingertips.
The fan: Create a rapid upward flicking movement on both sides of the face and neck.
Light pummelling: Work upwards, flicking the skin with alternating hands, along the cheek muscles on both sides of the face.
Gentle pinching: Pinch the cheeks with alternating hands on both sides of the face.
The neck stroke: Apply firm, upwards strokes from the neck to the chin, slowly working from left to right.
The forehead massage: Create a rapid upward flicking movement across the forehead, then firmly stroke the skin, slowly working from the left temple to the right.
These techniques are the secret to a great at-home facial, allowing you to mimic the spa experience.
Target Pressure Points
To make your DIY facial even more effective in reviving your complexion, apply pressure to specific points on your face to relieve tension and reduce puffiness. Remember to always be gentle around the eye area.
Along the eyebrows: Applying light pressure, follow eyebrows from inner to outer corners, gently pressing into the four pressure points.
Orbital bone: Applying even lighter pressure, follow the orbital bone from inner to outer corners, touching pressure points.
Temples: Lightly press fingers on the temples and release.
Eyebrow squeezes: Lightly squeeze the eyebrows.
