Massage to relieve tired yes


1-Rub your hands together to warm them up. Cover your eyes with the palms of your hands and close your fingers to make it as dark as possible. Enjoy the warmth and darkness for 2 to 3 minutes.

2-Move your hands gently from your cheeks to your ears to help stimulate blood flow in this area. Repeat 6 times.

3-Place the tip of your index and middle fingers just above the inner edges of your eyebrows. Without moving your fingers, apply pressure towards the outer corner of the eyebrow. Press, hold and release. Sweep your fingers under your eyes (avoiding the fragile skin around the eye), from the inside to the outside of the face. Once at the end, return to the starting position and repeat 3 times. Next, apply sliding pressure on your eyebrows.

4-Gently tap the area around your eyes, using all of your fingertips. Finish by blinking several times, shutting your eyes tightly.
