Gua Sha Facial Massage Tool
What is a gua sha facial massage? Gua sha is an ancient Chinese practice that’s thought to promote the flow of “chi,” or energy, in the skin. The technique involves gently scraping a tool over the neck and face—usually made of jade or rose quartz and cut to fit the contours of the face—in an upward sweeping motion. The pressure that’s applied to the skin via the gua sha tool causes a level of friction that improves circulation and increases blood flow to the area. The uptick in blood flow can offer up plenty of skin-friendly perks, such as increased collagen production, along with reductions in puffiness, hyperpigmentation, and muscle tension. For best results using my Cleansing Serums, you should massage the product into your skin for 60 seconds. You can use the Gua Sha Tool after cleansing, or use with one of my Sk(EI)nergy Booster facial oils to massage.
