Benefits of a Facial Massage
The face is full of nerves and pleasure points, so it makes sense that a facial massage is a desirable form of pampering. Give yourself a facial massage or visit a professional. Whether you are looking... for a quick midday pick-me-up or a soothing escape, the luxury of massage is easily justified by some of its more practical benefits.
Get in a Better Mood
Facial massage decreases anxiety and can improve a negative mood, according to a study conducted by the User Science Institute.
The FDA recognizes two categories: pharmaceutical and OTC cosmetics, which are defined as:
Pharmaceutical or drug: FD&C Act, sec. 201(g)(1)].
Topical pharmaceuticals penetrate through the layers of the epidermis and affect the structure and function of the skin (think of prescription topical steroids or Retin-A).
OTC Cosmetic: FD&C Act, sec. 201(i)].
Since many consumers “self-diagnose” when choosing a skin care product from a department/drug store, these products must be made safely. Meaning, big cosmetic companies cannot afford to have a huge number of consumers with issues from using very active products — so, that skin care product may feel good and smell good, but, most likely won’t have a lot of activity in its formulation.
