De-Stress with Seaflora’s Zinc Ion Cosmetic Applicators
Skin cells are squeezed and wrinkles are formed as a result of constant strain, stress, squinting, and other facial contractions. As a result, excessive facial stress can cause deeper wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity. Seaflora’s Zinc Ion Cosmetic Applicator can be beneficial for more than just cosmetic applications. Read on to learn the how to’s when it comes to using this beneficial little tool!
In many cultures, acupressure and specific pressure points have been used to restore balance to the body. You can melt away tension by using specific points with different pressures. A common favorite spot is located at the high point of the eyebrow, another in the inner corner of the eyebrow. Different spots have different effects. Read on for the specific tips and tricks!
How to Identify Pressure Points
When preforming a pressure point facial massage, if not already using a desired product, it’s a good idea to add a facial oil, moisturizer or a combination of the two to make sure you are gliding over the skin. Preforming a facial massage without product will cause the skin to be more pulled rather than massaged. This will give you less – if any – of the desired effects. To target specific concerns, there are specific pressure points you can use.
For Anxiety and Stress Relief
One of the best ways to relieve stress with a facial massage can be by massaging the temples with Seaflora’s Zinc Ion Cosmetic Applicator using a circular motion, and your favorite Seaflora product! This pressure point can also help relieve headaches.
For Sinus Drainage
A massage on the point of mid eyebrow is especially good for colds or people who experience allergies. You can achieve a deeper more accurate massage using Seaflora’s Cosmetic Applicator. Applying pressure in a circular motion on this point is one of the best ways to relieve sinus pressure using facial massage techniques.
Healthy Skin and Beauty
By massaging each pressure point on both sides of the face, using circular motions, you can help promote circulation and the movement of fluids through the face and neck. Using a natural Seaflora skincare product as your moisture for this massage will only enhance the desired results! There are also claims that by stimulating your third eye, applying pressure with the round end of your Seaflora Cosmetic Applicator for 60 seconds between your eyebrows, can help stimulate your pituitary gland, which can help with skin texture.
People experiencing brain fog or tiredness at the end of a long day can find relief in a facial massage using circular motions around the temples, and/or by using two fingers to trace the jawline using a gentle pressure. Another trick, used frequently in yoga practices to increase energy and focus, is done by applying pressure with the pads of your middle fingers to the inner corner of the eyes/sides of the nose. Closing your eyes and practicing breath, inhaling for 3 seconds and exhaling for 3 seconds, is also used with this pressure point.
You store and build up a lot of tension over the day in the cheeks and jaw muscles. Massaging below the cheekbones and around the jaw before bed using Seaflora’s Cosmetic Applicator, and a light moisturizer, oil or a combination of both has been shown to relax the tensed-up facial muscles at the end of a long day.
Signs of Aging
Fighting the signs of aging is a battle we are always fighting! Luckily, there are some tricks you can use to keep the fine lines and wrinkles at bay. If you are experiencing puffiness, you can place Seaflora’s Cosmetic Applicator in the fridge until it reaches a desired cool temperature. Massage under and around the eye area with the rounded end of the applicator. Try this step with the added benefits of one of Seaflora’s seaweed eye products! By massaging one of our unique products into the delicate skin under and around the eyes, you can battle the signs of aging with superfood seaweed. Preforming this step with a cooled applicator, moving the round tip in an outwards and upwards direction, then again with an inwards direction will help smooth those fine lines, reduce puffiness and prevent premature aging. The added benefits of our seaweed skincare will help rid of those dark circles and send you on a path to youthful eyes.

By using specific pressure points, we can aid our body and mind in many different ways. Some pressure points and massage treatments may even help alleviate illness and injury! Acupressure comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine that has been used in treatments for hundreds of years. According to the Rogel Cancer Centre, ‘The goal of acupressure (as well as other Chinese Medicine treatments), is to encourage the movement of qi (“life energy”) through the 14 channels (meridians) inside the body.” We see traditional natural health therapies all throughout history, used across the globe. Thalassotherapy, acupressure and all holistic health treatments focus more on the person, while still aiming to prevent any issues by covering the health of the body, mind, and spirit.
