Why Use Mount Lai Gua Sha Tools?

Mount Lai gua sha facial massage is a practice in traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for centuries to heal and rejuvenate the skin. Facial massage can be done with your hands, but our facial tools offer more benefits than just using your hands. To enhance your features and promote lymphatic drainage, tools allow for a more targeted and controlled massage. Facial tools can be used to contour the facial contours, rather than relying on your fingers' shapes and positions and straining your hands. There are many different shapes and uses for gua sha tools.

But what is lymphatic drainage? The lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system, helps to eliminate toxins and other waste and improve overall health. Fluid buildup can lead to puffy skin if the lymphatic system isn't working well. Stagnation in the lymphatic system can cause an increase in toxins which can lead to skin looking duller or even worsening acne breakouts. There are two main benefits that can be derived from lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic drainage is a part of traditional Chinese medicine and helps to remove toxic and congestive substances, which makes it easier for nutrients to be absorbed. Massage not only stimulates lymphatic drainage but also increases blood flow and circulation. The blood transports oxygen and nutrients to other cells. Combining lymphatic drainage and massage can help you remove toxins from your tissues and absorb more nutrients to nourish your skin.

It is possible for fingers and hands to accidentally pull on delicate and sensitive areas of the skin. Our Mount Lai gua sha tools are gentle on the skin and don't pull. You don't have to worry that your fingernails will scratch the skin when you are using tools. You can work on your entire face with tools, while your hands are more limited. A tool can target the lymph system and fascia at the surface of the skin, which is not possible with your hands. Facial massage with our tools is a great way to improve your skin's health and appearance. Our tools reduce puffiness and fluid buildup, reduce jaw and facial tension, promote glowing skin, boost circulation, increase blood circulation, firm and lift your skin, and provide anti-wrinkle treatment at home.

You don't need to pick one gua sha tool when choosing the right facial massage tool. You can reap many benefits by using different tools together. To maximize your facial massage's effectiveness, we recommend using multiple tools in combination. These traditional Chinese medicine self-care techniques will enhance your beauty, no matter if you're a beginner or an expert who uses multiple gua sha tools in your skincare routine.

How to Use:

  1. Make sure to clean your face well and prepare the skin with a serum or facial oil to improve the glide of the Gua Sha tool and nourish it. Mount Lai's natural skin products are a great pairing for the Gua Sha tool. They are made from healthy herbs and plants and can be used in conjunction with our tools. Start with the forehead. From the eyebrows to your hairline, move the tool upwards.
  2. Start at the cheeks, and work your way outwards from the crease of your nose to the ear.
  3. Start at the jawline, and then use the end part of the Gua Sha to create the curves. Begin at the chin, and work your way to the ear. To release tension, gently massage the guasha tool into the ear.
  4. To clean the under-eye region, gently rub the Gua Sha tool from the inner corner to the temple. It is essential to use light pressure because the area is delicate.
