The Basics: How To Use Gua Sha
Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the usage of a Gua Sha Tool promotes lymphatic draining for smoother-looking skin. It is said that Gua Sha aims to move energy, known as qi or chi, around the body. Our Gua Sha Facial Tools are handcrafted with raw rose quartz crystals. Rose quartz is metaphysically known for heart chakra healing and increasing self-love.
HOW TO USE A GUA SHA
Always be sure to clean your Gua Sha before each use. Next, apply your favorite facial serum. Moving the Gua Sha across dry skin will tug which be will uncomfortable and lead to increased skin texture and fine lines.
Lastly, Glide your Gua Sha in a mixture of small and long strokes across your face, starting from the center and working your way out. You can use the curved edges to fit the tool around the natural contours of your face and jaw. For lymphatic drainage, focus around the chin and jawline area and follow by sliding the Gua Sha down the neck to promote drainage.
