Facial Gua Sha is all the rage. Here's why.
If you’re up on the latest beauty trends, you’ve probably come across a cool and smooth stone like the one pictured below. This beauty tool is made from the lovely Rose Quartz gemstone, and is used for a massage technique called Facial Gua Sha.
Facial Gua Sha is not a new phenomenon, but is based on an ancient Chinese healing technique that means “to scrape.” The act of mildly scraping the face and neck with a massage tool yields numerous benefits:
Supports a healthy glow by promoting blood circulation to the skin
Tightens and tones the skin, enhancing elasticity
Reduces puffiness, eye bags, and dark circles around the eyes
Discourages the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Relieves facial tension
Allows beauty products (e.g. face cream & serum) to penetrate deeper into the skin for better absorption
If you’re looking for an affordable way to keep your skin beautiful, radiant, and glowing, consider Facial Gua Sha. It’s a wonderful act of self-care and makes a great addition to your nightly skincare routine.
Directions for Facial Gua Sha:
Apply 10 - 12 drops of facial oil to cleansed and toned skin
Hold the massage tool at an angle and gently scrape along well-lubricated skin, moving upwards over forehead, cheeks, lip area, jawline, neck and under eyes
Use for 2 - 3 minutes, 4 - 5 times a week
Clean massage tool with a mild soap cleanser, dry, and store in a muslin bag
