We will now discuss the second of the 20 acupressure points. As a means to a non-surgical facelift, acupressure conducted with your own fingertips, and under your own control, leaves a face looking younger, with more color, less wrinkles, and with overall firmer facial skin and underlying tissue.
non-surgical, natural facelift, point both of your forefingers skyward (Like you are pretending that your forefingers are gun barrels) and place the tips of them onto the skin midway between the hairline and the tops of the eyebrows. The tips of your forefingers must be just in line with the pupils of your eyes.
Now make small, firm, inward circles with your fingertips (the fingertips should be moving towards each other when making the circles). Do not press too hard so as to cause discomfort. Massage this point for at least 1 minute. (You can do this for as long as you wish).
This acupressure point is called Yang Bai. It opens the energy channels in your face, so that the thin muscles in the vicinity of your fingertips are stimulated with the result of increased blood flow to the surrounding skin and tissue. This point works on the skin and the forehead muscles, which support the layers of skin that, as time goes by, have a tendency to develop deep wrinkles. By massaging this point, you will be plumping and building up the underlying facial tissue as the blood flow is increased.
There are other advantages too: This acupressure point is an effective treatment for migraines and insomnia. You might experience some warmth to the face and the back of the neck whilst massaging this point.
You are now well on your way to completing your own non-invasive facelift!
Acupressure as a means to a non-surgical facelift is very effective, and with time you should see the lines begin to smooth on the forehead as long as you apply the massage to the area for at least one minute per day for the first 30 days, and apply the massage for 2-3 times a week thereafter, to maintain your progress.
