Gua Sha

How to use Gua Sha?

Gua sha is an ancient traditional Chinese method to promote circulation and dissolve tension. For many years, this method has been used to improve skin health and give a natural glow. If you are curious about trying gua sha at home, here are some tips on how to use it properly:

  1. Prepare your skin: Before you start using gua sha, make sure your skin is clean and moisturized. You can use a facial oil or serum to provide a smooth surface for the tool to glide over.

  2. Start with gentle pressure: Begin by gently pressing the gua sha tool against the skin, making sure to use a gentle and light pressure to avoid damaging the skin.

  3. Use an angle: When using gua sha, hold the tool at an angle of about 15 degrees to the skin. This helps promote circulation and dissolve tension effectively.

  4. Make long strokes: Use gua sha with long, even strokes over the skin. You can start from the center of the face and work your way outwards to stimulate drainage and reduce puffiness.

  5. Be careful around sensitive areas: Avoid using gua sha on sensitive areas such as around the eyes and on the neck. Instead, use the tool on the cheeks and jawline where the skin is a little thicker.

  6. Be consistent: To see real results, it's important to be consistent with your gua sha routine. Use the tool a few times a week to achieve the best results.

Gua sha is a great tool for promoting healthy skin and providing a natural glow. By following these simple tips, you can start enjoying all the benefits of this ancient traditional method at home. Be sure to invest in a high-quality gua sha tool to ensure you get the best possible results. Good luck!
