Gua Sha: Reduce bags under the eyes and get a fresher look
Gua Sha is an ancient massage technique that has been used in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years. The technique includes a number of beneficial effects for your skin, including loosening the muscles, draining lymph fluid, increasing blood circulation, and has a firming effect on the skin on the face.
How can Gua Sha massage help with bags under the eyes?
Gua Sha can be an effective tool for managing and reducing bags under the eyes. By improving blood circulation and draining lymph fluid, Gua Sha can help reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.
Bags under the eyes often occur due to fluid accumulation and swelling. This can be due to several factors, such as lack of sleep, heredity, ageing, and diet. The Gua Sha massage helps stimulate lymphatic drainage, which helps reduce fluid build-up and puffiness under the eyes.
In addition, Gua Sha can help strengthen the skin around the eyes by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein that contributes to the skin's strength and elasticity. By improving the skin around the eyes, Gua Sha can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, contributing to a younger and more awake appearance.
For best results, you should use the Gua Sha tool in upward strokes, starting from the inside of the face and moving out to the sides. It is important to use light coats and avoid pulling or tugging at the skin.
It's worth noting that while Gua Sha can help reduce bags under the eyes, it's not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Make sure you get enough sleep, maintain a healthy diet, and drink plenty of water to support your skin from the inside.

Gua Sha for increased blood circulation
Improving blood circulation in the face is one of the many benefits of Gua Sha. This is because the blood flow brings nutrition and oxygen to the skin cells, giving the skin an immediate glow. At the same time, it helps to transport away waste materials. According to a survey conducted by Vogue, you can increase microcirculation by up to 400% by using your Gua Sha for one to two minutes every day.
Dissolve muscle tension with Gua Sha
Gua Sha is an effective tool for relieving muscle tension and tension headaches. By increasing oxygen supply and removing toxins from the skin, this ancient massage technique can help reduce pain and swelling.
The benefits of Gua Sha for your skin
Gua Sha and Facial Roller are excellent tools for achieving firmer and more elastic skin. The Gua Sha massage can reduce the appearance of large pores, reduce dark circles under the eyes and increase collagen and elastin production in the skin, leading to tighter skin.
Gua Sha for lymphatic drainage
Our lymphatic system has an important task, namely to carry around the lymph fluid that contains white blood cells that fight infections. A well-functioning lymphatic system is important for health, and Gua Sha massage can contribute to this in a positive way. For those who often experience facial swelling, focusing on lymphatic drainage during a facial massage can be particularly beneficial.
Gua Sha to reduce wrinkles
The Gua Sha massage gives your skin cells more nourishment and stimulates the nervous system so that the body can rest. This relaxing treatment can therefore help reduce fine lines and wrinkles by releasing tension in the facial muscles.
Gua Sha for sensitive skin
Do you have sensitive skin, rosacea or burst blood vessels on your face? We recommend placing your Gua Sha stones or face rollers in the fridge for a few minutes before treatment to cool and soothe your skin.
Gua Sha for acne
By massaging the face with Gua Sha around areas with acne, blood circulation in the skin will increase. This will have a positive effect on the acne areas, as increased blood circulation helps the skin to get rid of blackheads and pimples. The pores become less visible, and impurities in the skin such as acne and pimples are reduced.
In sum, Gua Sha can help achieve healthier and more youthful skin by stimulating blood circulation, draining lymph fluid, loosening muscle tension and contributing to lymphatic drainage. Take part in this thousand-year-old tradition by incorporating Gua Sha massage into your daily beauty routine to achieve a fresher, more youthful appearance.
