Facial Rejuvenation with Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been used for treating ailments for more than 5000 years. Applied to rejuvenating the face, acupuncture can make you look 5-15 years younger in 15-20 sessions. Acupuncture requires no drugs or surgery -- the acupuncturist simply inserts fine needles into the skin. (Don't worry, the needles are so fine that the procedure is effectively painless.)
When Qi is blocked or the flow is unbalanced, problems start to arise. Acupuncture uses needles to stimulate the flow of Qi and direct it to where the energy is supposed to go. Applied to the face, acupuncture leaves you looking and feeling more calm, energetic, healthy, and vibrant.
Unlike surgery or similar treatments, acupuncture doesn't simply leave you looking better. You come away feeling more full of life and energy -- like having returned from vacation. Since the skin is the body's largest organ, this kind of acupuncture treatment can also strengthen your immune system and make you more resistant to disease.
Other Natural Facial Rejuvenation Techniques
Treatments with oil and antioxidant facials all can be great ways to give your complexion a boost.
Oil cleansing generally uses a mix of olive and castor oil. The goal of an oil cleansing treatment isn't to leave the face oily. But instead of removing too much oil from the skin and sending the oil-producing glands into "overdrive" like a degreasing treatment does, oil cleansing applies healthy oil to the skin to clean off detritus and restore a healthy level of oil to the surface.
Oil cleansing works because oil dissolves oil. Apply a healthy blend of olive and castor oil to your skin, and makeup, dirt, and sweat will come right off. Remove the oil with warm-to-hot water after steaming your face under a washcloth.
Besides oil cleansing, antioxidant facials can be an excellent way to rejuvenate your skin naturally. Antioxidant facials can have some of the same effects as acupuncture, giving you a healthy glow and a more radiant complexion. Since antioxidants have long been linked to the performance of the immune system and even to fighting cancer, an antioxidant facial may also have health benefits.
To give yourself an antioxidant facial, you start with fruits or vegetables that contain plenty of antioxidants without irritating the skin. Cucumbers are a popular choice as a facial, but other fruits and vegetables are used too. (Cranberries are popular, as is green tea.) Generally, the essence of the fruit or vegetable or tea is applied in the form of a cream you can buy locally.
Between acupuncture, oil cleansing, and antioxidant facials, you can keep your skin looking fantastic without needing to resort to expensive plastic surgery. These treatments are all natural, so they help restore your face to the way it should look, rather than the way someone thinks it ought to look. In other words, not only can you save money and skip the risks of complications, but you'll come away looking more naturally beautiful.
