Makeup is an addition to an everyday beauty routine that delivers a great look to the face. However, the skin radiance and the facial features are more important which only makes the makeup look more beautiful. The cheekbones are a face feature that is always on display, and there are a lot of makeup and beauty trends that accentuate the cheeks. Have you ever considered accentuating them by lifting them? Well, that can be easily achieved with facial massage as part of the daily skincare routine. Lymphatic massage for the face originated in China. It stimulates skin circulation. It is the perfect way to prevent premature aging because it helps tighten the muscles, boosts circulation, and gives the face a lift.

Here is a 5-step guide that will help accentuate the cheekbones.


Step 1: Double cleansing

The first step of every routine and this one too is clean skin. That means doing double cleansing. Start with removing the makeup with an oil-based cleanser and then go with a foam-based cleanser. The double cleansing will remove dirt, oil, and any leftover residue and provide clean skin.

Step 2: Apply moisturizer or face oil

The next step in the routine is the application of moisturizer or face oil. Apply it evenly on the entire face. Apply a generous amount to the face and do not forget the neck too. Start at the collarbone and work it upwards.

Step 3: Massage the cheekbones

Facial lymphatic drainage enhances bone structure. Moving the lymphatic fluid removes puffiness and the excess retention of fluid in the face. By using pressure on the face, place the palms below the cheekbones and massage them back towards the hairline. In the end, cup them and pull upwards for five seconds. Repeat this process five to six times.

Step 4: Sweep fingers down the jawline

For sculpting the jaw, start with the index fingers and place them around the nasolabial fold. In one motion, firmly press and slide the fingers down to the jaw. To finish with this step, move down the fingers from the jawline to the neck. That will drain the fluid at the lymph node. For a more defined jawline and cheekbone area, the gua sha tool is also a great way to achieve that. it will help release tension and improve circulation.

Step 5: Pinch

The last step in this routine is to pinch the cheeks, the jawline, and the lips. Do that gently, which will contour the inside of the face to the outside. Repeat that six times. To finish the entire skin routine, add a hydrating mask that will nourish and moisturize the skin.

This 5-step facial and skincare routine will deliver a healthy-looking, radiant, and fresh look to the face and the skin. Moreover, the cheekbones and the jawline will appear more accentuated and contoured, which will deliver an even greater makeup look and appearance.
