What is Eyebrow Pinching?
Brow pinching is an ancient Ayurvedic massage treatment that promises to solve a variety of issues on the skin like wrinkles, puffy eyes and balding eyebrows. By doing this treatment, you will be able to experience numerous benefits on the skin and particularly in the eye area. It is a treatment that involves using oils, kneading and pinching on the skin around the eyebrows and eye area.
Benefits of Eyebrow Pinching
As been mentioned above, brow pinching has numerous benefits for the skin, especially in the eyebrow and eye area. As for the mind, this treatment helps to relieve tension on the eyebrows by working through the marma points which are energy points in the body used in Ayurveda. Massaging these pressure points is supposed to boost positive energy into your chakras.
The gentle kneading and pinching on the skin also provides benefits for the skin, namely the condition of the skin. The pinching done on the skin stimulates circulation, allowing the cells to be nourished with the essential nutrients that rejuvenate the skin and allow the body to heal. As a result, collagen production is increased, which improves skin elasticity and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. That is not all, as the regular blood circulation can also stimulate the hair around the eyebrows, increasing chances that your eyebrows will grow lusher. Moreover, the increased circulation also meant that the lymphatic system in the skin improves which reduces the amount of toxins on the body.
