How to Get Rid of Those Jowls in 5 Minutes


Hi, hello, we meet again, & SHOCKER…we’re talking about skin.

Facial massage is something I get asked about over & over. & yes, we’ve talked about it many times on The Skinny Confidential but I wanted to show you guys how to do it without a tool, just your hands & a bomb ass oil. This way you can do it anywhere, anytime, for practically free.

This specific oil we’re using is one of my favorites. I’ve talked about it before- it’s Superfood by Elemis. I’ve talked about it 100 times, yada yada, I know, BUT IT’S SO GOOD. It’s one I’m constantly going back to. Superfood is lightweight, really gets into the skin to nourish it, & reduces fine lines & wrinkles which makes it perfect for facial massage.

Benefits of Superfood Facial Oil by Elemis:

♡ highly concentrated vegan formula.

♡ contains antioxidant & omega-rich broccoli, flax seed & daikon radish to help plump & smooth the skin.

♡ smells amazing & gives the perfect dewy glow.

Also, I’m so annoyed with oil getting everywhere when I put it on my hands. This one has a perfect little dropper so I can do 3 exact drops in my hands before my facial massage.

To be specific, as always, I filmed a video. It’s quick, easy, efficient & something you can even do with me. You’ll learn how to zigzag on your forehead, how to use your index fingers under your eyes, & de-bloat the jowls.

With that , lets get into it:
