Acupressure Points For Acne
Did you know that basic massages can boost your glow? Massage speeds up the circulation and allows blood to flow in an even manner. The fresh blood helps you get a healthy flush. The idea behind acupressure massages is that our bodies have energy pathways called meridians and their blockage makes us face all sorts of problems. These problems constitute digestive problems, pain, stress, and much more. By applying a significant amount of pressure on these meridians, we can get the energy flowing properly again.
Let’s be real, these pressure points can sometimes be very sensitive and pressing on them might make you scream with pain but when it’s all over, you will be singing happy tunes. So, let’s say goodbye to blocked blood streams and say hello to a healthy lifestyle. While there is no conclusive evidence as to if this massage is useful for acne or not, some people still believe that this practice can help soothe acne and increase lymphatic drainage. For these massages, use your index fingers to apply pressure on specific points for 30-60 seconds every 2 days and you’re good to have healthy and glowing skin!
Though there are a lot of points that can help you get free from acne, you do not have to massage all of these points at once. Massaging one or two of them is equally effective. Let us have a look at the different meridians that can be massaged to get acne-free skin.
