When you remove your makeup or when you put on your usual creams, take the opportunity to apply the Kobido gestures.

  • In this video, the young woman is exercising light pressure on her face, and mass it with your fingertips by pinching it lightly. This technique allows above all to prepare the skin for the treatment, by stimulating the microcirculation, but it also allows to redraw the oval of the face and lift the cheekbones.
  • Then, we reproduce this same technique during the application of his cream or his treatment (note that in real Kobido, we prefer the use of a cream rather than an oil, to keep a “close contact. “with skin tissue).
  • Here, we exercise a slight pressure on the muscles of the face for a few seconds while holding them, as if they were contracting them, allowing them to relax more gently and give the skin that pulpy effect. Finally, to bring volume to the face, we perform faster and more toned movements, to increase the production of elastin.

These techniques, inspired by Kobido and practiced daily, will give your face a real boost … for a skin full of energy as soon as you wake up. It’s a great way to start the day on the right foot!
