Gua Sha for a youthful glow

The immediate glow you experience after a Gua Sha massage comes from increased blood circulation. When you use your Gua Sha, you increase the microcirculation in the skin by up to 400% for one to two minutes every day, according to a survey done by Vogue.

This increased microcirculation is positive for the skin's health, as the blood flow brings nutrition and oxygen to the skin cells. This gives the skin an immediate glow, while waste products are carried away.

The benefits of Gua Sha for healthier skin

1. Increased blood circulation and glowing skin

Gua Sha massage helps to increase microcirculation in the skin. By gently scratching the face, you stimulate blood flow and bring nutrition and oxygen to the skin cells. This results in an immediate glow in the skin and the removal of waste products. According to a study conducted by Vogue, using Gua Sha for one to two minutes each day can increase microcirculation by up to 400%.

2. Reduce signs of aging

Gua Sha and facial rollers are effective tools for achieving firmer and more elastic skin. The massage technique helps to reduce the visibility of large pores, dark circles under the eyes and increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. This results in a tighter skin structure and fewer visible wrinkles and fine lines.

3. Lymph drainage and relaxation

The lymphatic system plays an important role in carrying around lymph fluid, which contains white blood cells that fight infection. Gua Sha massage can help improve lymphatic drainage and thus increase skin health. By focusing on lymphatic drainage During a facial massage, you can reduce facial swelling. It is recommended to move outward towards the lymph nodes located in the neck and near the ears.

4. Treatment of skin problems

Gua Sha massage can be of great help in the treatment of sensitive skin, rosacea and burst blood vessels on the face. To further soothe the skin, you can put the facial roller in the fridge for a few minutes before the treatment. The cool roller will help cool and soothe your skin.

5. Acne treatment and prevention

Massaging the area around acne can increase blood circulation in the skin, which can have a positive effect on acne areas. Increased blood circulation helps to reduce blackheads, pimples and the visibility of pores. By using Gua Sha massage regularly, you can achieve an improved skin condition and reduce the occurrence of acne.

6. Affects the skin's elasticity

Both Gua Sha and Facial roles are effective tools for promoting skin elasticity. Gua Sha massage reduces the appearance of large pores, reduces dark circles under the eyes, and increases collagen and elastin production in the skin. This provides a firmer and tighter skin structure, an essential part of achieving a youthful glow.
