But how does Guam Sha Cosmetics work?
The answer lies in the science of skin care. Guam Sha, both in the form of tools and in the form of cosmetics, perfectly copes with the task of stimulating blood circulation. Gently encouraging the surface of the skin, it promotes blood flow, which, in turn, enhances the production of collagen.
Collagen, the protein responsible for the elasticity and youthfulness of the skin, gets an impetus to increase blood circulation. Collagen production is triggered, and the skin becomes firmer, supple, and rejuvenated.
Choosing the right Guam Sha cosmetics according to your skin type is crucial to achieving the best results and ensuring that your skincare is effective and safe. Here is a detailed guide on how to choose Guam Sha cosmetics tailored to your specific skin type:
Determine your skin type:
Dry Skin: If your skin feels tight, rough, or flaky, often looks dull, or lacks moisture, most likely you have dry skin.
Oily skin: Oily skin is usually shiny, with enlarged pores and a tendency to acne due to excessive sebum production.
Combination skin: Combination skin has the characteristics of both dry and oily skin, with an oily T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) and drier cheeks.
Sensitive Skin: Sensitive skin is prone to redness irritation and may react negatively to certain skincare ingredients or environmental factors.
Along with your skin type, identify any specific problems you want to solve, such as fine lines, acne, pigmentation, or uneven texture.
Choose Guam Sha tools and products:
Dry skin: Choose Guam Sha facial oils or creams for deep hydration, often enriched with hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and ceramides. These products help to retain moisture and eliminate dryness.
Oily Skin: Look for light, non-comedogenic (non-clogging pores) products such as serums or gels that control excess fat release. Ingredients such as salicylic acid or tea tree oil can be beneficial.
Combination Skin: Use a balanced approach with products suitable for dry and oily skin. A light serum with moisturizing properties for the cheeks and a mattifying agent for the T-zone will work well.
Sensitive skin: Choose gentle, hypoallergenic Guam Sha products. Ingredients like chamomile, aloe vera, and calendula can help soothe sensitive skin types.
Consider consulting a dermatologist if you need more clarification about your skin type or have particular skin problems.
