Crystal Greene’s Top Tips For a Successful Facial Massage

When you leave Crystal Greene’s Manhattan facial studio, you’ll feel an instant sense of calm. Chalk it up to the relaxing environment she’s cultivated, and her signature transcendental facial massage technique that’s equal parts rhythmic, firm and stimulating. “Facial massage is usually the point in the facial where clients feel the difference not only in their skin, but also in their nervous systems,” says the Harlem-born esthetician, who has been featured in the likes of Goop, The Zoe Report, Into the Gloss and more. “It is where clients begin to decompress and often drift into a deep sleep. I want every client not only to look beautiful but mostly feel beautiful.” 


Whether you’re aiming to simply relax, de-puff your eyes or sculpt your cheekbones, Greene shares the benefits of facial massages and her tips for performing a successful one at home, below. 

“Facial massage is usually where clients feel the difference not only within their skin, but also in their nervous systems.”

Morning or night?

You can certainly do both. At night, I like to use facial massage as a stress reliever to decompress, and to help soften tension after a busy day. In the morning, I use massage to focus on any areas of puffiness and as a way to wake up, energize and refresh the skin.

Sculpting the cheekbones

Starting from the sides of the nose, take your middle and ring finger and sweep along the contour of your cheekbone. You can also do a few acupressure points and hold for a few seconds as you glide along the contour of the cheekbone. Repeat 3-5 times.

De-puffing the eyes

I like to use a guasha tool to depuff. Anchor your guasha tool below the inner corner of the eye and right below the occipital bone. While the tool is lying close to the skin — but not completely flat — glide the tool with a gentle, feathered stroke outwards towards the temple. Repeat 3-5 times.
