DO YOU GUA SHA?
Gua sha is a traditional Chinese massage technique for the face and body. It involves using smooth edged tools to scrape your skin which can be done by yourself or during a professional treatment. Combine our Certified Organic Face Balm with your massage tools for a match made in beauty heaven! 😇
WHY WOULD YOU GUA SHA? 👇
🌿 To stimulate blood flow by increasing blood circulation in your face for a brighter looking complexion that feels firmer to the touch.
🌿 Helps to apply skin products evenly: a facial massager, along with the pressure on your skin, can help our face balm soak into your skin deeper.
🌿 They cool the skin: stones such as jade or rose quartz are naturally cool, therefore when you apply these onto the skin, the result is instantly cooling and refreshing. Top Tip: Leave your massage tools in the fridge to sooth sensitive skin.
🌿 Reduce puffiness: if you wake up with a slightly puffy face, a facial massage tool helps with lymphatic drainage.
🌿 Smooth fine lines and wrinkles: as the facial tools promote lymphatic flow, this is also thought to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and eye bags.
HOW TO GUA SHA
Gua sha is simple to do and is incredibly relaxing and soothing. You can do it while you watch TV, having a bath or as part of your nightly beauty routine. There are two main tools for gua sha face massage; a contoured stone and the roller. See the images below for ways to use gua sha tools.
Using stroking techniques across your cheekbones, up your forehead and neck, and along your jawline and above your eye brows, you can either roller or scrape depending on your tool of choice.
