With age, the skin of the face becomes saggy and it’s not just because the facial muscles weaken and the production of collagen and elastin decreases. There is one more reason that causes aging — the displacement of facial bones. As a result, the face oval becomes more blurred, and the cheeks and the chin become saggy. However, a Japanese man named Chiyo Hayashi did a great job at trying to resolve this problem. He developed a special technique for massaging the face that helps restore the initial position of the skull’s bones and improve microcirculation in facial tissues. This system was given the name Korugi.
Bright Side learned how to perform this type of massage correctly and we are eager to share this knowledge with you. Don’t miss our interesting bonus at the end of the article!
An important note!
Muscle tone decreases over the years and fat gets redistributed. In youth, the fat forms a homogeneous layer, but in old age, it starts to accumulate in certain zones.
Get a mirror and massage oil before you start the procedure. It will help you keep track of whether you’re performing the movements correctly, as well as avoid extra friction. Also, your skin should be clean.
It’s prohibited to perform the massage if you have ENT diseases, disorders of the lymphatic system, chronic skin pathologies, or facial wounds.
You should rub and press the face pretty hard, but without creating any painful sensations.
The Korugi massage contributes to weight loss on the face.
