In addition to launching her red carpet package at her waterfront clinic, Dr. Liza is sharing her celeb-approved posture-improving tips and tricks below to ensure you’re always red-carpet ready- no matter where you’re going.
The following massage and fascia-focused techniques, which can be done from the comfort of your home, are useful for releasing tension from facial muscles, improving skin tone, and correcting posture. Check out her tips and image tutorials below!
Myofascial release of connective tissues in face, neck, and back
Prior to starting these treatments, Dr. Liza recommends applying a simple facial oil suitable for your skin- remember to choose an oil that you know works for you and doesn’t overload your skin.
The fascia is a connective tissue that acts as a support network throughout the entire body and can play a significant part in our facial appearance. Over time, knots in the fascia can cause distortions in the face that may present as sagging, lines, and asymmetry.
In order to combat this, the myofascial release feels like a face massage and works to balance out the muscles and fascia to create lift, symmetry, and collagen production. The muscles along the spine and pecs are also released to improve posture, as this is the foundation for a lifted face.
You can perform a simple myofascial release on your face solo, or team up with a friend or partner for the full face, neck, and back experience. For the upper back and shoulders, simply apply firm upward strokes to the muscles for two minutes, moving towards the head. Follow this with a gentler face massage- applying as much pressure as is comfortable.
Dr. Liza recommends tapping the face all over with your index and middle finger because it is beneficial for natural stretch and relaxation. By doing this regularly, Dr. Liza says that you will smooth out and reduce the appearance of wrinkles triggered by muscle contraction
Gua sha used to release tight muscles in the face
Dr. Liza states that the gua sha tool is used to remove facial tension and is another method to further break up knots in the fascia. It also provides slight trauma to the face to encourage the formation of more collagen and create a more lifted appearance.
Rose quartz is often used as it is cooling, and has been said to combat negative energy.
Dr. Liza’s Pro Tip: if you don’t have a gua sha, a chilled spoon is a great substitute.
Dr. Liza recommends ending off your routine with some jade rolling. Not only is it calming for the self and the skin after the prior four procedures, but it also helps to promote lymphatic drainage, decreasing puffiness in the face.
