The Facial Fascia Fitness Secret

This year has been the year of fascia education for me. I’ve learned just how important a role healthy fascia plays in overall body health.

Of course, once you realize how important your fascial system is, your next question is, inevitably, “How the heck do I keep my fascia healthy?”

Ultimately, the answer is simple. Healthy fascia is hydrated fascia and, while it’s important to drink water and eat plenty of healthy foods, it’s critical that you also move your body through complete ranges of motions.

Essentially, the whole body is hydrated through movement, and this includes the thinnest fascia in your body, located under the skin on your face.

“But how can we effectively move and hydrate the fascia under the skin on our face?” you might be wondering. I’m glad you asked. 😉

During the Fascia Works seminar I took in August, Marie-José Blom shared a secret beauty remedy for keeping the facial fascia (try saying that three times fast 😉 ) hydrated and elastic, and now I’m going to share that secret with you.

While you may have heard about using honey to moisturize dry skin, it turns out it’s also very useful to stimulate and hydrate the underlying fascia of your face. So now you have two great reasons to give this technique a try if you’ve only thought about it up till now.

Let’s get started. All you need is a little bit of honey and about 5 minutes.

 

Step 1

Place a small amount of honey in the palm of your hand. Make sure your hands are dry.

Step 2

Press your hands together and release them 3-5 times until the honey feels tacky when you pull your hands apart.

Step 3

Place your hands on the sides of your face and gently press until you feel them stick. Then lift your hands upward and out away from your face. You want to feel the tackiness of the honey between your hands and face. Repeat this at least three times in the same spot.

Step 4

Repeat step three all over your face.

Step 5

Rinse with cold water.

I've incorporated this into my skin care regimen twice a week since August. I love the way it makes my skin look and feel, especially on mornings when I'm feeling particularly tired. It helps me look well rested.

If you try this out, I'd love to hear how it goes!

Happy honey face,
