【#Vivien Yeo’s Beauty & Lifestyle】The little secrets you must know for rosy and whitening skin!
Having a natural, glowing complexion takes a little bit of effort if you want to go makeup-free. Besides choosing the right skincare products, facial massage can also effectively improve your complexion. The simplest tool for facial massage is our fingers. If you're worried about using too much pressure, you can also use some facial massage tools to help you restore a rosy complexion.
Before embarking on a skin whitening journey, it's crucial to understand the factors that contribute to dullness in your skin. Even though you're putting in a lot of effort to use skin whitening essence, why is your skin still dull and lackluster? It could be due to certain lifestyle factors. Here are some common issues to be aware of:
- Dehydration of the skin
If the stratum corneum lacks moisture, the metabolism slows down, and skin problems such as yellowish and dullness may occur.
- Constantly burning the midnight oil
Long-term sleep deprivation can lead to hormonal imbalances. Prolong the retention time of melanin and make us look tired and yellowish.
- UV rays
When UV rays penetrate the dermis, they produce melanin and cause a loss of collagen protein. The stratum corneum cannot metabolize normally and the face may appear yellowish and may also cause other skin problems.
Acquire the skills of facial “Gua sha” and take your skincare routine to the next level!
I previously bought some “gua sha” tools, which, when used with facial oil, have become a must-have item in my skincare routine. My skin has become fair and rosy, and it no longer looks yellowish. Follow my method and give yourself a simple facial treatment!
Preparation for "Gua Sha":
Before use, clean the "gua sha" stone/massage stick with water. Then clean your face thoroughly and dry it. After, you can begin the "gua sha" process.
- After cleansing your face, apply an appropriate amount of facial oil to your face.
- Use an eye massage stick to scrape from the inner to the outer corner of the eye area, then perform some lifting movements on the outer corner of the eye.
- Then, use another "gua sha" stone to scrape along the jawline (where the double chin is located) and pull it down to the area below the ear. Gently massage the neck area to stimulate the lymphatic system.
- Finally, use the other side of the “gua sha” stone to scrape from the inside to the outside of the cheekbone area to prevent sagging of the face. Finish.
What are the benefits of facial "Gua Sha"?
The busy and stressful lifestyle of urbanites often makes our complexion yellowish and our skin saggy, which can make us look older than we are. Spending some time doing facial “gua sha” can help improve these problems by unblocking our meridians.
- Promotes blood circulation and metabolism
To achieve a white and rosy complexion, a natural facial flush is necessary. Facial “gua sha” can stimulate acupoints and improve various skin problems.
- Detoxifies and nourishes the skin
By stimulating acupoints, facial “gua sha” can promote facial circulation and remove excess water and waste, which can also have a slimming effect.
- Tightens the skin
"Gua sha" can promote circulation, allowing the skin to receive sufficient nutrients. This can help tighten the skin and make facial contours sharper.
Wait a minute before “Gua Sha”! Are you suitable for facial “gua sha”?
Just like the body “gua sha”, facial “gua sha” is not suitable for everyone. During the massage process, different reactions may occur depending on one's physical condition, such as redness or bruising. However, not everyone will experience these reactions, so there is no need to blindly pursue redness as a sign of effectiveness.
The following people are not suitable for “gua sha”:
- Pregnant women
- People with inflamed skin
- People with severe illnesses
- People with Qi deficiency and blood deficiency
- People who have just eaten or drunk alcohol
If you are trying “gua sha” for the first time, you must pay attention to the pressure you apply. Use it in combination with facial oil or lotion to avoid injuring your subcutaneous tissue. If your skin experiences any abnormalities or reactions, immediately stop the “gua sha” process and seek medical help.
I believe that any skincare method works best when internal and external factors are combined!
After scraping out excess toxins and waste, it is not enough to maintain good skin condition. Improvement must also begin from the inside body. To maintain my skin condition, I take CURVE UP+ and Glowhite every day to enhance my internal sun protection and collagen supply. The tripeptide collagen in CURVE UP+ has molecules nearly 5 times smaller than regular collagen peptides, making it easier for us to absorb collagen with the help of natural vitamin C. In addition, I take 2 capsules of Glowhite every day to even out my skin tone and achieve deep whitening effects from the inside out. Long-term use of these supplements will not lead to dependence or side effects. This is my secret to keeping my entire body's skin fair and youthful, I hope it can help you too!!
