A female asked:

Is facial massage good for the skin or does the tugging cause wrinkles?

Very good: Facial massage should be light, up-lifting, using tapping, stroking, and light pressure techniques. It does not produce wrinkles. Sun exposure, smoking and dehydration or poor nutrition contribute to wrinkles and ageing appearance to skin. Use creams to reduce drag on the skin during massage.
