Are you looking for the best way to reduce eye bags? Have you tried a whole bunch of eye treatments, only to find that they inflame or cause even more sensitivity - hello red drippy eyes :(
If so, look no further than gua sha, a technique that has been used to heal the skin since ancient times. It works by releasing toxins and relaxing the muscles under your eyes, reducing swelling and puffiness over time. Here’s what you need to know about this sensitive skin solution to eye bags.
Gua sha is a traditional Chinese medicinal practice that involves gently sweeping the skin with a blunt object to improve circulation. Gua sha can be used on the face, including around the eye area, to reduce puffiness and inflammation. To use gua sha for eye bags, start by cleansing the area and applying a light oil or serum specifically designed for sensitive skin. On one side of the face, push your skin on the side of the nose to keep in in place. With the other hand holding the guasha, gently sweep the gua sha facial massage tool over the under-eye area and out to the hairline. Repeat five times on each eye, then work the tool from the inside corner of the brow bone out to the temple area. Repeat on the other side.
The gua sha stone is a traditional Chinese tool that has been used for centuries to improve circulation and reduce inflammation. When used on the delicate skin around the eyes, it can help to break up congestion and reduce puffiness. Gua sha can also help to stimulate collagen production, which can lead to firmer, smoother skin.
The results of a gua sha facial are not permanent, but with consistent use daily, you will find the inflammation and dark circles will recede. NOTE: please make sure you are getting enough rest, drinking plenty of water and eating well. Gua sha can also help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes.
