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 crystal that fits inside the palm of your hand. 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:

  1. Apply 10 - 12 drops of facial oil to cleansed and toned skin

  2. 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

  3. Use for 2 - 3 minutes, 4 - 5 times a week

  4. Clean massage tool with a mild soap cleanser, dry, and store in a muslin bag
