Gua Sha is a facial tool and massage technique traditionally used in East Asian healing practices to increase blood flow and relieve congestion. The goal is to treat acute and chronic ailments by literally scraping the disease away. Today we use Gua Sha to relieve tension in facial muscles, improve blood circulation, and promote lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness. It may also help break down fascia, the connective tissue that wraps around muscles but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation to the face.
Many users report that Gua Sha helps to sculpt the facial features, which in turn reduces puffiness. This is due to lymphatic drainage in the face and neck.
By strengthening your facial muscles with regular gua sha, you may feel more relaxed and less tense in your face. This helps prevent wrinkles and improves skin texture.
Using facial tools and massage as part of your routine has a positive effect on blood flow to the skin, which may help improve the appearance of your skin and make it glow!
The scraping movement of Gua Sha on the skin releases the body's natural anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving endorphins on the face. Overall, less tension, less pain, and less facial inflammation will make you happier!
Start with cleansed skin and apply your favorite moisturizer or serum.
Follow the guide on which side of the gua sha board to use on the facial area. Using gentle pressure, massage from the top of the face down. Don't forget your neck!
We recommend holding the gua sha board at an angle (almost flat against the skin!) to control pressure and movement on the face. To really complete your at-home facial, make sure to mirror whatever you do on one side of your face with the other!
Wash the gua sha board with warm water and soap. Repeat this exercise 2 to 3 times a week.
We recommend using Gua Sha 2 to 3 times a week, alternating between morning and evening use. Taking time to relax and care for your skin will help ease anxiety and leave you feeling rested and cared for. Not only will you feel more relaxed, but your skin will be rewarded too!
In your morning skincare routine, take a minute or two to massage your favorite serum with your Rose Quartz Gua Sha and start your day with extra self-love and inspiration! The smooth feel of rose quartz will relax your skin and remove puffiness so you can start your day smiling. Rose Quartz is known for purifying and opening the heart, ready for all types of love, especially for feelings of self-love and peace. Start the day with more trust, harmony and self-love, just what we need in the midst of this year's chaos!
Your nightly skincare routine is the perfect place to use Jade Gua Sha to help you relax and settle in for the night ahead. A facial massage will help you transition from a hectic workday to the private time you've always dreamed of. We recommend a Gua Sha massage after your night moisturizer, spending extra time on your chin and temples to really melt away the tension of your day. Jade is a protective stone that soothes the mind and helps release negative thoughts. It protects the user from harm and is the perfect way to relieve the anxiety and stress that builds up throughout the day. A jade facial massage will leave you clear-headed as you sleep, ready to realize your dreams with insight and creativity. The mood is comfortable, the skin is naturally good!
