Everything you need to know about Gua Sha:
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese medical treatment. When done on the face it is a delicate technique that improves circulation, helps with lymphatic drainage and gives the face a more firm, lifted and glowy look.
It’s a technique that involves scraping the skin using different shaped tools often made out of rose quartz or jade but it can also be made of other materials.
Gua Sha tools are generally about the size of your palm and have different curves and notches to allow you to massage all areas of the face, they are completely smooth and polished to stop you from doing any damage to the skin.
Before you begin you should have a clean face and apply a little moisturiser or oil to give the skin some slip and allow the tool to glide.
Try and keep the tool flat when 'scraping' it over the skin and apply a medium pressure.
How many times you go over each area depends on the amount of time you have to spend, on average between 5-10 times or 15minutes is a great start.
Add this treatment to your daily routine or scheduled you time during the week and start seeing the benefits.
