6 Head Massage Tips to Get Rid of Wrinkles

Even if you properly take care of your skin, visit cosmetologists, and get beauty injections, all these measures may not be enough to keep your face looking young. The condition of the muscles and the tendons of the neck and head play a huge role. It influences the skin’s color and determines if you have any swelling, eyelid drooping, wrinkles, and if you look fresh and toned overall.

We at Bhaskar Health decided to find out what epicranial aponeurosis is and why an everyday quick head massage could lead to a considerable lifting effect. Also, we’ve compiled a list of the necessary exercises that will help with this.

Epicranial aponeurosis is a tough layer of dense fibrous tissue that covers the upper part of the cranium in the human body. The scalp becomes less mobile over the years, loses its elasticity, and becomes more attached to the skull. It slows down the microcirculation of the blood and creates the effect of a tight rubber hat that presses on the head and lowers the face. This is where the drooping eyelids and deep wrinkles come from and why the face loses its overall shape.

The healthy condition of the scalp is when it is mobile and it can be restored with a massage of this area. The more mobile the scalp is, the younger the face looks.

6 Head Massage Tips That Can Help Us Get Rid of Wrinkles

The biggest effects achieved by this massage are:

  • Better nutrition of the hair follicles, and, as a result, better hair growth
  • Improved blood circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Normalizing of the heart function
  • A decrease in the intensity of headaches
  • Less face swelling, especially on the upper part
  • A natural lifting of the face
  • Wrinkles become less obvious

1. Side grip

Pick up and hold the hair at the roots from both sides of the head, an inch above the ears, feeling the motion of the scalp and slightly pulling the hair toward the top. Hold this position. Tilt the head forward a little in order to increase the tension of the hair and the skin, and do circular motions with your hands clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Duration: 30-40 seconds

2. Grip behind the ears

Grip the hair from both sides behind the ears, closer to the back of the head, feel the motion of the scalp and slightly pull the hair up to the top. Hold this position and then do light circular motions with your hands clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Duration: 30-40 seconds

3. Grip the forehead and the back of the head

Grip the hair on the back of the head and on the forehead (at the hairline). Lightly pull the hair toward the top, hold this position, and then do the circular motions clockwise and counter-clockwise with your hands.

Duration: 30-40 seconds

4. From the forehead to the top

Place the fingers of both hands on the forehead, at the hairline, and move toward the top with slight pressing and circular motions. Pay more attention to the areas where you feel pain.

Duration: 30-40 seconds

5. Back-of-the-head massage

Place the fingers of both hands on the back of the head and move them down toward the neck, making slight pressing and circular motions. Pay extra attention to the areas where you feel pain.

Duration: 30-40 seconds

6. Lymphatic drainage

Make fists and place them on the bones at the sides of the back of the head. Massage the area with circular motions.

Duration: 30-40 seconds

This massage can be done during the day, but the best time to do it is right after you wake up — in a sitting or standing position.
