Gua Sha is an ancient technique from Chinese medicine that involves massaging the face in a scraping motion to improve your complexion. The theory behind Gua Sha is that it increases blood flow and lymphatic circulation, which may smooth the appearance of wrinkles, brighten complexion, improve skin tone and texture, and firm the face contour.
How to use Gua Sha:
1. Start by thoroughly cleansing your skin and hands.
2. Dispense 5-10 drops of your serum into the palm of your hand. Rub hands together to warm the serum and press to apply it all over your face and neck.
Once the face is hydrated and feeling smooth, use your Gua Sha stone at about 15 degrees to the skin and apply light to medium pressure, with a slow and mindful speed. Repeat each stroke outlined below 5-10 times. You should start at the neck and work your way up to the forehead. This way, you’re creating a clear path for the fluids in your face to drain.
