Gua Sha is a simple press and stroke massage technique using jade (or other stone) boards and rollers along the contours of your face.
Gua Sha has been shown in studies to boost circulation by 400%! This beauty treatment has been used across Asia for thousands of years.
It stimulates the dermis to support collagen production, manipulating areas of tension to relax facial muscles, increases blood and lymphatic flow.
All this leads to a brighter, healthier, more radiant, less puffy complexion.

How to Use
FOREHEAD: Work slowly from centre of forehead towards hairline.
EYES: Sweep across eyelids, gradually working your way to under eye area.
NOSE: Sweep from top of nose to the end of nostrils.
CHEEKS: Using the wider end, follow cheek contour to ears.
JAWLINE + NECK: Work from the centre of chin outward and upward to the cheeks, sweep from under towards collarbone.
Some people like to keep their rollers and boards in the fridge. The coolness awakens skin and calms inflammation, and the physical massage aids in lymphatic drainage and fights puffiness.
Especially nice on a hungover or tired face! Instantly makes your face look more presentable.
Use it with a serum or oil to really press the nutrients into your cells!
