Have Beautiful Skin with these Top 5 Acupressure Points for 10 Minutes a day
Did you know that facial acupressure, can give you HEALTHY, BEAUTIFUL SKIN, can make your skin GLOW and make you look YOUNGER and more vibrant? How?
By stimulating the acupressure points, blood circulation is enhanced, which allows for more moisture to the skin, more oxygen and more collagen production.
Lack of proper blood circulation to the tissues of the face is the reason why skin looks tired, dull, pale and withered.
Press on these easy acupressure points daily and your skin will be glowing in no time! It will literally only take five minutes twice per day!
You have nothing to lose! Let’s get started!
You’re going learn my top 5 favorite DIY acupressure points, how to locate the points, how to stimulate the points and how the points work, to give you glowing skin in no time.
The third-eye point

Often referred to as the Facial Beauty Point
