The famously beautiful skin of Japanese women can be attributed to a careful skincare routine – day by day. Besides the basics like double cleansing and double moisturizing, many Japanese women do facial massage at home. Facial massage may sound like a luxury, an expensive delight experienced at a day spa or esthetic salon. Yet there are also self-massage techniques that can be simply performed at home.
Tanaka is a process which fights wrinkles quickly and tightens the skin. The massage stimulates the lymph glands, thus speeding up the discharge of toxins and excess fluids from the face. It will reduce wrinkles, lift the face, prevent and improve sagging skin, will reduce pore size, black heads and white heads and will get rid of puffy eyes and under-eye bags.
How does it work?
According to traditional medicine, pushing down or activating a pressure point releases bad qi, which can correspond to certain health and aesthetic concerns like puffiness. Like the French, the Japanese believe face massages can help to reduce puffiness and increase micro-circulation to the skin. Tanaka massage method was invented by 田中宥久子（Yukuko Tanaka), a Japanese makeup artist.
She claims this massage method gives an at-least-10-year-younger looking face.
She also says, if you start this massage method early in age, you may not even have wrinkle and fine lines in your life, like her. This is an excellent routine to add to your skin care regimen. It will reduce wrinkles, prevent sagging skin, improve sagging skin, improve puffy eyes and under-eye bags, and more.
