With the help of the Gua Sha self-treatment method, your skin becomes smoother and firmer, because the treatment makes your skin settle more beautifully on the bones of your face.In this case, the features of your face, especially the jawline and cheekbones, come out more clearly.Gua Sha is an old skin care method of Chinese medicine, where blood circulation is accelerated by treating the surface of the skin.Gua Sha massage helps, among other things, in the removal of waste materials and in the reduction of swelling and promotes better absorption of the nutrients in skin care products. Gua sha massage relaxes the muscles and tense areas of your face and helps improve microcirculation.With the improvement of blood circulation, the waste materials flow out of your tissues, causing your facial swelling to decrease and your cloudy skin to clear up. It causes tension and blockages in your fascia (muscle membrane) to release.Your emotional state affects the musculature and fascia of the face, causing, for example, so-called "wrinkles". Tensions in the chewing muscles, on the other hand, easily cause swelling, for example.Gua sha massage stimulates the skin's fibroblasts, which are responsible for the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen keeps skin tissues flexible, regenerative and functional.A person's natural collagen production begins to slow down little by little around the age of 25, and today it is recommended to start using anti-age products already at that age. The massage also removes puffiness around your face and eyes. This is usually the most desired effect of gua sha and the reason why many people want to include gua sha in their skin care routine.
Gua sha can also reduce pigment spots and impurities.Gua sha is not recommended if your skin is damaged or inflamed, as the method may increase inflammation in different parts of your skin. If your skin has rosacea, acne or eczema around the mouth, the inflamed skin should not be treated, but you can still use gua sha on other skin areas. For example, treatment of the neck area is useful for those suffering from rosacea and acne skin.In treating any skin problem, it is especially important to treat them from below. If your skin problem is concentrated in the area of the cheeks and chin, it is important to take care of the neck, neck and décolleté. The neck and décolleté are so-called the gateway to the face, as it connects the rest of the body and the face.Do not rub the swollen skin area directly, such as eye bags. If you have had fillers or other injection treatments done on your skin in the last three months, gua sha is not recommended for use. Gua sha can affect the fascia, so the pressure it creates can move subcutaneous fillers to the wrong places.If you have a blood clot, bulging artery or arteriosclerosis, gua sha is unfortunately not for you. Diseases or medications related to blood clotting also prevent the practice of gua Sha, as does cancer in an active state. Even with a cold, you should skip gua sha and continue when you are healthy again!This is how you use a Gua Sha stoneUse: The Gua sha stone should be used when you have more time and want a thorough facial massage.
