Yes, it’s fine to give yourself a face massage every day. However, you may notice some temporary redness during and immediately after each session. It usually resolves rapidly, especially if you stay well-hydrated. Aside from temporary redness, there are no known side effects or serious complications that could result from giving yourself a daily massage—just be sure to use a gentle level of pressure!

Why it’s a good idea to massage your face every day

Gently massaging your face every day is ideal because it provides ongoing benefits for your skin. Giving yourself a loving facial massage helps to direct a more robust blood flow to the skin cells. After doing so, many often notice that their skin appears glowing, rejuvenated, and tighter, with more defined contours around the jawline.

How long should you massage your face every day?

It depends on how much time you have to dedicate to your skincare. Occasionally, you might enjoy a lengthy face massage of a half-hour or perhaps even longer. However, even a 10-minute massage on a regular basis will provide exceptional benefits for your skin. 

Not only that, but taking just a few minutes everyday to lovingly massage your face feels amazing, too. 

Does the time of day matter for a face massage?

It’s best to choose a time when you aren’t feeling rushed so that you can really enjoy a face massage. For example, many people incorporate a quick massage in the morning as part of their AM skincare routine and enjoy glowing, uplifted skin all day. Or, you can do it during your PM skincare routine for a relaxing ritual before bedtime.

What if you don’t have time to massage your face every day?

We get it, you’re busy and it can be challenging to fit one more step into a skincare routine—especially if it is already complex. Instead, aim for one or two massages on the weekends and perhaps a shorter, five-minute massage at least once during the week. 

Any time you have to devote to self-care will be worth it, whether that’s while watching your favorite show, listening to a new podcast, or even waiting for water to boil for dinner or a warm beverage. 

When you shouldn’t massage your face

If you’ve received Botox, dermal fillers, or any other injectables in your face, you should consult a dermatologist before performing a face massage. Even gentle movements can cause injectable products to migrate, potentially leading to side effects.
