HOW TO PROPERLY DO A GUA SHA PLATE MASSAGE?

JAK PRAWID艁OWO ZROBI膯 MASA呕 P艁YTK膭 GUA SHA?

Facial massage is an effective method of daily care. A properly performed massage can improve the condition of the skin and brings many benefits - the skin becomes firmer, the facial contour lifts and the complexion becomes radiant. So how to perform such a treatment at home? Reach for the most effective method, i.e. a gua sha plate!


WHAT IS A GUA SHA FACIAL MASSAGE PLATE?


It is nothing more than a properly profiled piece of natural stone. Gua Sha has its specific shape and it is not accidental. Each side of the plate is intended for massaging a different part of the face and body. Use the longest, flat side to massage your forehead, neck and cheeks. If you want to use gua sha for body massage, this part of the plate will also be suitable for feet and neck. Treat the area under the eyes with the shorter, convex part and the nose with the characteristically indented part.


HOW DOES A GUA SHA PLATE WORK?


Its operation is best explained by the name itself. GUA means "scrape" in Chinese and SHA means "red rash". And you can take it almost literally, because the massage with the plate is supposed to cause slight redness, which indicates that the flow of blood and lymph is improved. Thanks to this, the body naturally gets rid of toxins remaining in the tissues more effectively. It is also a sign of muscle activity - either in the body or facial muscles.


WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF A PLATE MASSAGE?


Gua Sha facial massage is a kind of "gym" for the face. What are the effects of regular facial massage?

  • tightens the skin and eliminates its flaccidity,
  • shapes the face contour,
  • reduces wrinkles,
  • adds radiance to the complexion.

How is it possible that the skin looks illuminated after a massage? This is the effect of stimulating blood circulation - the facial skin with better blood supply looks more youthful, is slightly pink, and discolorations become less visible. This massage is also a great way to relax and unwind. A few minutes of neck massage relaxes tense muscles and gives pleasure.

HOW TO CORRECTLY MASSAGE YOUR FACE WITH A GUA SHA Plate?


  • Apply a moisturizing serum or Blue Calm facial massage oil to your face to ensure proper lubrication. Massaging the cosmetic into the skin with a plate will additionally enhance its absorption and thus its effect.
  • Technique. First of all, don't push too hard! The basis for success and great results is systematicity, so firmly stretching the skin and pressing the plate will not speed up the process.
  • Hold the Gua Sha perpendicular to the skin, make short, firm movements outwards from the face and observe the skin. If it becomes slightly pink but not irritated, you are doing it right.

After the treatment, to soothe your skin a bit, you can use a natural serum with vitamin E or a super moisturizing DASH tonic with hyaluronic acid. Moreover, the skin warmed by the massage will absorb the active ingredients contained in the product better.


HOW IS GUA SHA DIFFERENT FROM A FACIAL ROLLER?

Gua sha is one of the facial massage methods. Another one that really started this care trend are rollers. The roller works more gently and its purpose is to stimulate microcirculation, making the skin more radiant. If you also want to contour your face and not just reduce wrinkles, then a gua sha plate will also work better.
