Since there’s no place on Earth one can hide from the process of aging, we can at least enjoy the fact that we are aging during the time when rejuvenating technology is exploding! In addition to ever more effective rejuvenating creams and serums, the world of beauty has welcomed cutting-edge devices that act like a workout for your face and slow down the aging process.
This is particularly the case with microcurrent facials, a special technology that stimulates the muscles of the face and neck in order to tighten the skin. As we get older, the production of collagen and elastin slowly decreases, along with muscle mass. Applying microcurrents through the skin promotes collagen production, restores elastin, and tones the muscles of your face and neck.
The world of beauty has been using microcurrents for many years, but that’s not all – the medical world has also been using this technology because their clinically proven effectiveness has been shown to help with wound healing.
By now you’re probably wondering if there is a way to use microcurrents to naturally tighten the skin on your face in the comfort of your home?
Yes – there’s a way and all you need is a microcurrent device and a special routine to follow. Keep reading because we’re about to share our A-list face-workout with you.

Cleanse your face thoroughly
Before you start the routine, it is essential to cleanse your face and allow the skin to breathe. Since in the next step you will also be applying a serum, it is important to eliminate all layers of impurities and dead cells off the skin and allow the serum’s active ingredients to absorb more efficiently. For premium results, use a cleansing brush that will allow a thorough and gentle cleanse. The cleansing brushes also offer a skin massage that stimulates face muscles. It’s a win-win situation: an effortless workout that is beneficial to the skin.
Apply a serum
If you want to take full advantage of the microcurrent benefits, make sure to hydrate your skin and apply a serum. This way, the microcurrents will be able to pass through your skin to the muscles more efficiently and the device will slide more smoothly on your skin. Also, don’t forget to apply the serum on your neck, not just your face.
Start with the area around your eyes
Place your microcurrent device on the bridge of your nose, just below the eye. Then start moving the device along the area under your eye towards your temple. Repeat the same movement 3 times on each side of your face.
Focus on the oval part of your face
This is the lower part of your face, the line that runs along your jawline from your chin to your ear. This is an area particularly prone to aging, so you should pay special attention when massaging it. Glide your device from the bottom up, from the chin to the ear. Repeat this movement ten times on each side of your face.
Move onto your forehead
To tighten the skin on your forehead and, in particular, reduce the frown line between the eyebrows – make sure to attack this wrinkle-prone area of your face! Vertically break down your forehead into 5 parts: start by sliding your device upwards from the outer part of your eyebrow to the birth line of your hair. Repeat the movement starting from the second part of your eyebrow.
Continue in the center of the forehead, at the level of the frown line, making the same upward movement from the top of the nose to the top of the forehead. Then continue to the second eyebrow in the same way. Repeat this step 3 times for the best results!
Massage your cheekbones
We are moving on with our tightening routine by treating our cheeks with a massage. Place your device on the nasolabial fold (the fold at the edge of the lips when you smile), and let it press for a few seconds for optimal stimulation. Then move it higher on the cheek, pressing it for a few moments. Then move up to the cheekbone to the base of the ear. Repeat this movement 3 times on both sides of your face.
Finish with neck and chin
This is a sensitive area where the saggy skin can be very visible – so attention must be paid. In order to tighten the skin of the neck and under the chin, focus on the two areas on either side of your trachea. Slide the device up and down along the trachea and away from it with each upward movement so as to cover the entire neck up to behind the ears. Repeat this movement 3 times on each side.
And that’s it!
You will have to repeat this routine regularly – 5 times a week for the first two months, then 3 times a week for the following months. But don’t worry, it will soon pay off as you will start noticing more tightened skin and a boost of elasticity.
