Do you wake up with tired and puffy eye?
A gua sha tool is a natural treatment that aids in depuffying the eye region and gives you a rested appearance. This age-old method has been practised for millennia to increase lymphatic drainage and circulation, giving the user a more radiant and young appearance. Learn how a gua sha tool may make you seem less puffy beneath your eyes by reading on and watching the demonstration video down below.
Causes of Puffy Eyes
Regardless of age or skin type, puffy eyes are a common problem for many people. This condition develops when extra fluid gathers in the tissues surrounding the eyes, giving them a puffy, baggy, and worn-out appearance.
The occurrence of puffy undereyes can be caused by a variety of factors. Here are a few of the most common reasons.
An allergic response or seasonal allergies may cause eye puffiness. Histamine responses such as watery eyes, itching, and puffiness may be brought on by exposure to dust, pet dander, and pollen.
Our skin ages, thins out, and loses suppleness as a result of decreased collagen synthesis. As we age, our skin becomes more prone to drooping, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as a baggy or puffy appearance beneath the eyes.
Your undereye region may naturally generate fat pads according to your genetic makeup. Another element is gravity, which makes it easier for fat to migrate to the lower eyelid and provide the illusion of puffiness.
Some people may have fluid retention in the region if they consume a lot of salt or drink alcohol. Smoking can accelerate the ageing process and cause sagginess in the skin, notably around the eyes.
Gua Sha For Puffy Eyes
Gua sha is a Chinese medicinal technique that involves using a gua sha tool to scrape the skin. This multi-edged, smooth stone tool may be crafted from rose quartz, jade, or other semi-precious stones. Gua sha tools may be used to massage the face and body with little pressure to ease muscular tension while enhancing relaxation and lymphatic flow all over the body (moving fluids away from a tense area).
The undereye region is the best place to use a gua sha tool to minimize puffiness and promote a more youthful appearance.
Your lymphatic system will be encouraged to perform what it does best when you use a gua sha tool: remove waste from the body. The tool's mild scraping promotes lymphatic fluid to migrate from your undereyes, reducing puffiness.
The gua sha tool also promotes increased blood flow to the skin. Improved blood flow reduces swelling and inflammation while also supplying the skin with nutrients and oxygen.
Facial Muscle Tension
Undereye puffiness may be triggered by tense face muscles. The muscles in the area surrounding the eyes and the rest of the face are related. The blood flow and lymphatic drainage in the region surrounding the eyes are impacted by strained facial muscles. This may result in an accumulation of fluid and swelling that gives the impression of puffiness beneath the eyes. You may aid in the relaxation of these facial muscles and reduce the appearance of fatigue and puffiness by using the gua sha tool to gently massage the skin.
How To Instantly Depuff Eyes
Cleanse your face then apply a serum or facial oil to prepare your skin. This will minimize the pulling or tugging that can leave skin saggy and let the gua sha tool pass smoothly over your skin.
Slowly move the gua sha tool from the outer corner of the bottom of your eye working inward. Then move the tool toward the inner corner of your eye towards the temple, and then downwards until you reach the neck. Make sure not to press too firmly and to use gentle pressure.
Repeat on the area under your eyes by moving the gua sha tool from the inner to the outer corner 5-10 times. This repeated movement will encourage lymphatic drainage and lessen puffiness.
To further reduce puffiness after using the gua sha tool, apply a cold compress or a cooled gua sha or spoon to the area around your eyes.
