DIY: Acupressure Points for Beautiful Skin




You must be wondering what in the world is Acupressure. Well I am really interested in these Ancient treatments so I came across this one. The idea comes from Ancient China.

Acupressure Points are located around your body and all you need to do is press on those points with your fingers to deal with health/ beauty related problems.
It is said that in Ancient China, Acupressure Points were like prescriptions to treat patients. They had herbal medicines but this was a much easier way.
Nowadays many therapists use Acupressure and some therapists also teach Acupressure to pregnant ladies for a healthy child.

I am going to tell you some points on your body that gives you beautiful skin. You can have your own spa treatment at home now :) You should massage these points for 30-60 seconds for about 3 times per week

  • Point 1: The Third Eye
This is the point between your eyebrows and above your nose (the red dot).

It stimulates the pituitary gland, which is the master endocrine gland, to enhance the condition of the skin throughout the body. 

  • Point 2: Four Whites
This point is located 1 inch below the pupil and on the cheek. You should feel the cheek bone too. 
This point cures acne and blemishes.




  • Point 3: Facial Beauty

This point is under your pupils and below the cheekbone. Its basically right under (1 inch below) the Point 2.
It relieves acne, facial blemishes, poor complexion, sagging cheeks and improves facial circulation.


  • Point 4: Heavenly Appearance
This point is located just under the ear lobe and behind the jaw where you kinda feel the indentation. 
It balances the thyroid gland to increase the luster of the skin; relieves hives.
Sorry girls I couldn't find a better picture :(

I haven't tried this massaging technique but after hearing this I really want to. So I will definitely try this and do another post to let you girls know about the results.
I hope you liked it.
Take Care.

  4. To properly do acupressure, you should not move your fingertips when pressing on the point. It should be a firm(but not hard) press against the desired area, with no movement involved.

  5. In ancient China I heard that they would try to diagnose internal problems by looking at the skin on your face. Easiest tests to conduct I guess haha.

  7. I just did all of these massages...I guess I will have to continue doing them for the next 3-4 weeks to see if there is any improvement in my skin :)...but I just want you to know...the 3 minutes I spent doing these massages were the most relaxing 3 minutes I've had all day! If that's all I gain from these massages, that's enough! :)

  8. Acupuncture massage tightens your skin. This is mainly because of stimulated circulation. You’re also “training” your face to go a certain way; which is usually opposite the way gravity wants to take it.

  12. With people all over the globe spending billions of dollars on skin-care products every year, you'd think cosmetics companies had replicated the fountain of youth in the laboratory. In fact, skin creams have gotten more and more expensive and less and less based on real science. According to most experts who aren't hawking half-ounce jars of $200 youth serum,

    1. I'm 50 and I've been doing something similar (with a few more points added) for a couple of wks. the one thing I've noticed is that I don't have nearly as much back pain. I also take meds for fibromyalgia, but it only takes away about 80% of the pain. After doing facial/neck massage--I'm pretty much pain free! Hopefully I'll see more of a difference in my face soon too. Normally I'm pale, and I do have more of a 'pinkness'.

  15. Application of pressure has a limited time to be applied because it causes trauma to a certain part of the body being inflicted with intense pressure to circulate the blood. Acupressure is easier to be applied than the application of acupuncture and other traditional medicine because it only needs pressure points to clear out the system.
