Skin Massage: an important cog in the skincare wheel.

Skin massage: an important cog in the skincare wheel.

The application of touch in a systematic way induces positive effects. Skin massage refers to gentle, scientific manipulation of the skin resulting in incredible health benefits. Skin massage is an essential cog in the skincare wheel and will be discussed in detail here.

What is massage?

Massage refers to touching, pressing, rubbing, and manipulating skin, muscle, joints, ligaments, and tendons.1 There are various styles of massage that target specific areas of the body and produce different effects.

A brief history of massage.

The massage was iconic to luxury spas, health clubs, and upscale hotels. Nowadays, it is available everywhere, from your nearest shopping plaza to the airport kiosk. Massage therapy might feel like a modern luxury; its roots lie deep into traditional holistic methods.

The knowledge of life and longevity forms Ayurveda’s basis, an ancient medical concept from the Indian subcontinent.2 Dating back to about 3000 BCE (5,000 years ago), Ayurveda promoted massage therapy as a natural healing remedy that restored the body’s natural, physical balance.3

With time, these methods traveled to other parts of Asia. Eventually, this practice of natural healing entered the European continent and the rest of the world.

Benefits of massage.

Massage therapy reduces anxiety, stress, pain, muscle tension, headache, and stress-induced insomnia. Psychologically, a massage provokes relaxation, comfort and may help induce sleep.4

Skin massage in detail.

Skin massage is performed in various ways. The following table lists the most common methods of skin massage:

Gentle rubAlso known as Swedish massage.
Rejuvenating connective tissue massage.Slight pressure stimulates connective tissue of the skin.
Deep massageStimulation of deeper skin layers, along with muscles, tendons, and joints.
Rotating motionActivates skin muscle.
Added heat or cold therapyActivates circulation



Types of skin massage.

A combination of all of these works wonders!

How to perform a skin massage.

Skin massage can be performed at home by you or by a professional. Self-massaging helps you connect with your body while observing your skin, contours and promotes relaxation.

Start with skin cleansing. Skin massage can be performed before or after a shower. We recommend using natural, unrefined, vegan body lotion, cream, oil, or butter. If you are using Organic Body Butter or Lotion, the product will sink into your skin well during the massage, and you will not need to take a shower. Using high-quality Organic oil, we suggest a shower with lukewarm water and a Natural Shower Gel.

1)         Sit or lay in a well-lit area. Natural, indirect sunlight offers the best visibility while protecting you from direct sun exposure (adjust the window shades or shutters!).

2)         Observe the area of massage. One may choose to massage a particular area of the skin at a time (just the face, area with hardened skin, or dry skin area). Pay attention to skin tone, unevenness, elasticity, and pattern of wrinkles, if any.

3)         Take a small quantity of high-quality body butter, lotion, or oil and start rubbing over the skin in a gentle, circular motion. Avoid dry rubbing, deep massaging.

4)         Observe the change in skin tone, and pattern of wrinkles, if any.

5)         Be generous with the use of butter, lotion, or oil; you will be rewarded greatly with the results! How do I know how much to use and when to stop adding more? The skin will remain shiny with continuous rubbing, and the liquefied butter, lotion, and oil will start dispersing to the other areas of the skin, which is the optimal quantity! The quantity also depends on the size of the site you are massaging.

6)         With a gentle massage of about 30 to 45 seconds, your fingertips will feel the skin’s rising temperature being massaged. The change in temperature marks the end of an ideal massaging. At this point, move to the next area.

7)         At the end of skin massage, allow the skin to rest for about five minutes before cleansing or to take a shower. Observe the massaged area. This step will help you track the improvement in the skin over time.

8)         We believe that our fingers can provide the best massage while providing great feedback on the massaging process. Alternatively, you may use a roller, stimulating device. Remember, skin massaging is more about connecting with your skin, using high-quality massaging material and methods, and performing it regularly.

Remember to sit in a well-lit area, preferably with natural, indirect sunlight!

Benefits of skin massage

Mechanical stimulation influences the behavior of skin cells.5 Skin massage offers the following benefits:

1)         Anti-Aging and Anti-Wrinkle Therapy

Using your favorite anti-aging and anti-wrinkle therapy, along with skin massaging, can greatly enhance your results. A small study in 2017 has shown improvement in wrinkles, skin sagging, and skin evenness with this method.5

2)         Improve skin circulation

Routine use of skin massage increases skin temperature and relaxes the skin’s blood vessels, causing improved circulation. This way, our skin gets more oxygen while the butter, lotion, or oil deliver natural nutrients. This way, skin cells rejuvenate and improve their vitality.

3)         Improve lymphatic drainage

Our skin protects us from environmental factors. In this process, it collects dust, pollutants, and toxins. Lymph glands of our skin clear such toxins by acting as a filter. Skin massaging improves the function of the lymphatic system and helps clear out toxins quickly. In turn, the skin retains its radiance longer!

4)         Stimulation of collagen

Collagen is a rubber band like tissue that supports the skin cells. Collagen production decreases as we age and causes skin sagging and wrinkle formation. A gentle skin massage routine helps stimulate collagen-forming cells and boosts the production of healthy collagen.

5)         Natural exfoliation

Skin massaging with your finger using natural butter, lotion, or oil results in delicate friction between the creases of the inside of your hand (fingerprints!) and the area of skin being massaged. This friction causes the natural removal of dead and damaged skin layers without harming underlying young skin cells. This method is an excellent way of natural exfoliation without using harsh scrubbers and exfoliative preparations.

6)         Improve the tone of skin muscle

Our skin has a muscle too! Named “Arrector Pili Muscle,” it lies between the skin layers and helps regulate skin temperature by contracting and relaxing as needed. Skin massaging improves the tone of this muscle and helps prevent skin sagging.

We answer your questions!

What does massaging your skin does?

In a nutshell, skin massaging improves skin circulation, improves lymphatic drainage, stimulates collagen synthesis, provides natural exfoliation, and improves skin muscle tone.

How do I massage my skin?

Skin massage steps are as follows:

1)         Do-it-yourself or by someone or a professional.

2)         Sit in a well-lit area.

3)         Observe the site for massage. Look for unevenness, tonal imbalance, and wrinkles, if any.

4)         Use a generous quantity of high-quality, organic body butter, lotion, or oil.

5)         Use gentle pressure, circular motion, and sense the rising skin temperature.

6)         Allow the massaged area to rest for about five minutes. Observe for progressive improvement every time you massage the area.

7)         Be punctual and repeat periodically for consistent results!

8)         Enjoy your great looking skin!

Is it ok to massage your skin or face every day?

Light massage therapy has numerous benefits and can be used daily. Avoid harsh rubbing, too much pressure, chemicals, or harsh rubbing agents to prevent damage. We recommend high-quality organic butter, lotion, cream, or oil.

How often should you massage your skin and face?

Skin massage helps you connect to your body; it is an emotional affair. It should be repeated in a fashion that allows you enough time to observe and connect with your skin. Skin massage can be done daily, twice weekly, or weekly.

Does massage improve skin tone?

Yes. Skin massaging improves skin tone by improving blood circulation, enhances toxin clearance by the lymphatic system, improved oxygenation, and nutrient delivery.

Does face or skin massage cause wrinkle?

Gentle face massage using natural, organic butter, lotion, cream, or oil does not cause, promote, or worsen wrinkle. Harsh massage, putting too much pressure, and using chemicals can damage your skin and encourage wrinkle formation.

How can I make my face and skin look younger?

We have numerous posts with a meaningful discussion here.

Olive- A Gem with Skin Benefits

olive a gem with skin

Olive is the fruit of the olive tree. Extra virgin olive oil is first and cold-pressed extraction with excellent health benefits.

Let’s learn more about Olive oil’s benefits on Skin Health and appearance.

Olive Oil is rich in vitamin E, vitamin K, oleic acid, linoleic acid, stearic acid, and palmitic acid.

Effects of Olives on Skin Health

1) Antioxidant effect– Oxidative stress causes the skin to age faster and causes unwanted dark spots and blemishes. Olive oil’s Vitamin E and K prevents oxidative stress on the skin and deters aging signs.

2) Anti-inflammatory action– Many skin conditions are inflammation based. What is Inflammation? It’s a process in which our body reacts to specific insults or allergens. The most common one is the Autoimmune/allergic inflammatory reaction. When the cells of our immune system fight with our skin cells, inflammation occurs. This reaction is commonly known as dermatitis/eczema etc. Many people use and try many chemically formed creams/serum/lotions without reading their ingredient list (more info on out How to read the label). Sadly, chemicals cause unwanted reactions and further damage to our skin.

We will discuss how to find the culprit of all these problems. Are you excited?

Your search should start with your shower gel/soap.
a) Does my shower gel produce lots of foam?

b) Does it smell intense?

c) Do you feel dry after a shower?

d) Do you have to apply body lotion after a shower to calm itchy skin?

If you answer “yes” to any of those, then this is the time to change your shower gel or soap.

Most shower gel products and soaps contain chemicals that produce a large amount of foam. Artificial foam is a potent surfactant that removes skin-friendly oils, leaving a dry, itchy skin. Many bathing products contain mainly Castor oil and Palm oil due to its low cost and mass production. However, these oils can be harsh on our skin.

3) Skin Barrier repair and protection: Antimicrobial barrier and effect
Our skin contains many skin-friendly nano organisms that act as a barrier to repair and protect skin layers. It somewhat acts as a very weak antimicrobial that does not harm skin cells but prevents excess growth of harmful bacterias. Olive oil is ideal for protecting that skin barrier.

4) Permeability enhancer- I am sure all of us remember our chemistry class that a membrane allows the transfer of particles from one side to another. Well! The same principle applies here. That means it should retain moisturizer after shower or cleaning the skin, right? Well, here you go, Olive oil has the solution for that. It maintains and increases the permeability of the skin membrane so that it will not become dry.

Olive

Organic Shower Gels and Serene Face Cleanser from Kusum Cosmetics use USDA Certified Organic Olive Castile Soap, Himalayan Pink Salt, and Organic Essential Oils. Our products are preserved with natural preservatives. This unique combination provides gentle and effective skin cleansing while protecting it from dryness.

We hope you enjoyed reading this and stay tuned for more exciting articles.

Skin and Work Balance

skin and work

A balance between work and life is delicate. Taking care of lots of things at a time is challenging. The biggest problem I have heard from friends and myself is feeling tired as the day passes, not having enough time to take care of myself, and skincare included. There are very few aspects you need to focus on self-skincare. Skin and work balance is so important!

Skin is the largest organ of the body, so we may think it requires a lot of care. However, you need to follow only a few simple steps: 

  1. Hydration
  2. Nutrition
  3. Moisturizer
  4. Sleep

1) Hydration: It sounds straightforward, but the most difficult one since it has an impact on changes in day to day weather. How to quickly know if you are well hydrated? By the color of your urine- really! Yes, the color of urine should be very light yellow or white. If you achieve that, you are well hydrated! Use a natural moisturizer, cream, or lotion.

2) Nutrition: A well-balanced diet is not difficult to achieve. Choose green leafy vegetables for micronutrients, Vitamin C rich food (think of citrus, lemon), some probiotics in the form of yogurt, healthy snacks like carrots, and fewer simple carbs such as sugar and bread. 

3) Moisturizer: It is a vast topic. Let us start with your shower gel/soap. Our skin is drier after a shower. The most important thing is to avoid a very long hot shower—detailed reasoning in my next post. Use a natural shower gel.

4) Sleep: Getting enough sleep for 7-8 hours does wonders, which is difficult during the initial years of motherhood. I used to make a note of the necessary task every day and try to stick to that. It would be best if you are not perfect with everything you do. I would say even if you achieve a portion of the task, you already succeed.

Hair: Interesting Medley

hair medley

Key Insights:

  • Hair Composition.
  • Benefits of Hair.
  • Hair Growth Facts.
  • Hair Health Facts.
  • Hair Color Facts.
  • Optimizing Hair Health.
  • Summary.

We love discussing hair. Why? It is one of very few parts of our body that can be changed to suit our expression! Hair is the only part that is shaped in different manners without going through discomfort! Hair can be shaped, colored, held together in various shapes, and so much more! Taking good care of our hair is equally vital, and we aim to discuss exciting facts of hair and improving hair health.

Hair Composition.

Our hair is a complex mixture of specialized proteins. It consists of about 50% carbon, 21% Oxygen, 17% Nitrogen, 6% Hydrogen, and 5% Sulphur.1,2 The composition of hair in men and women is similar.

These substances together make hair strand stronger than an electric wire (copper) of a similar size.

Benefits of Hair.

The hair on our body insulates our skin from rapid changes in temperature and protects from harsh sunlight. It helps manage the sweating process by retaining moisture.

Hair Growth Facts.

Hair grows pretty fast, only second to the bone marrow (a substance that helps produce blood cells). Hair growth ranges from 0.3mm to 0.5mm every day! Hair growth is not affected by cutting hair. A new hair strand begins to develop immediately after the older hair strand falls out.

Hair Health Facts.

Chic Hair Bath

About 150,000 hair strands on the scalp.2 An average person sheds about 100 hair strands every day. Excessive hair loss can occur due to stress, chemical imbalance, lack of proper diet, lack of adequate sleep, hormonal imbalance, infection, and illness. Several medicines are known to cause hair loss. Men develop excessive hair loss due to increased hormonal activity.

The hair follicle can be hydrated and nourished directly during washing and applying nourishing substances. Natural products such as Chic Hair Bath can provide necessary deep hydration and nourishment to growing hair at the scalp level while providing gentle cleansing. Plush Hair Conditioner made with plant-based conditioners can provide excellent detangling, shine and hair fiber longevity. In between hair washes, Hair Nourisher can provide deep scalp nourishment. It can be used as a gel overnight and washed out in the morning.

Hair Color Facts.

Plush Hair Conditioner

Black is the most common hair color. Blonde hair present in about 2 percent of population. Natural Red color is seen in only one percent the population!2 About 75% of women colored their hair in 2015, as opposed to only 7% in 1050.2 Average hair color is repeated in 4-8 weeks. However, pH-balanced natural hair care products such as Chic Hair Bath, Plush Hair Conditioner, and Hair Nourisher are safe for colored or chemically-treated hair. These can help retain hair color longer than conventional shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks. These products help hair cuticle stay closed during the washing process to prevent color escape.

Key Insights:

  • What is plant-based butter?
  • How is natural, plant-based butter made?
  • Composition of skin-friendly butter.
  • How to use body butter?
  • Summary.

Skin is a complex fusion of various fatty acids. We discussed various natural oils, their composition, and micronutrients in the previous blog post. You can read it here. Different plants have skin-friendly fatty acids, and using them helps you keep your skin youthful.

What is plant-based butter?

Plant-based butter is a fat and protein component of natural fruit. Natural butter is solid to semi-solid at room temperature due to low water content.

How is butter made?

Plant-based butter is extracted from the seed or fruit. Raw, unrefined process of extraction produces butter with the top-quality skin-friendly fat and retains natural micronutrients. Refined and ultra-refined butter removes biological color particles, several fatty acids and thus appears softer and white. But, it also removes skin-friendly fatty acids and micronutrients.

Skin-friendly butter-Composition.

We will discuss Shea butter, Cocoa butter, and Mango butter in this article. These are excellent sources of skin-friendly fatty acids and micronutrients.

Shea butter

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the shea tree. Raw, unrefined shea butter typically consists of oleic acid, stearic acid, linolenic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, and arachidic acid.1

Thrive Body Butter

Thrive body butter is an excellent deep moisturizer with raw, unrefined, unscented organic Shea butter whipped with Argan and Soybean oils.

Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter is an extract from the bean of the Cacao tree. It is used for making chocolate. However, it has many skin-friendly fatty acids such as Palmitoleic acid, Stearic Acid, and Oleic acid.2

Glow Body Butter

Glow body butter is another excellent deep moisturizer with raw, unrefined, unscented organic Cocoa butter whipped with Sesame and Soybean oils. It has a pleasant, natural aroma.

Mango butter

Daytime Kindle Body Lotion

Mango butter is an extract from the kernel of the fruit of the mango tree. It is pale yellow, semi-solid at room temperature, and has a pleasant natural aroma. Unrefined organic mango butter is used in body lotion, such as Daytime Kindle body lotion.

How to use body butter?
