Apart from using the fabulous feeling eye effleurage in your massage sequences, as shown in this month’s *vlog, these addition touch techniques can also be incorporated within a facial protocol at several different stages.
We have specific eye products to use within a facial protocol; eye masques, eye serums and eye creams/gels. Each one may be applied in a different way to enhance the sensory experience for your client, giving greater client satisfaction.
Eye masques are generally applied at the same time as the face masque. Hydrating, cooling gel-based masques are ideal to use in the delicate eye area as they are easy to apply and remove, requiring minimal pulling and tugging on the skin.
