What is this natural Lifting or Botox of the East that everyone is talking about?
We have talked about Jade Roller and Rose Quartz Roller, and why should we all have one in our refrigerator!
But we wouldn’t be right, regarding the most important steps of skincare if we don’t talk or use, at least once, Gua Sha! If you start searching for it on Instagram, you will come across almost 88.3k Posts 🤪.
So I created a simple and comprehensive guide for Gua Sha. Gua Sha is according to traditional Chinese medicine a beauty tool that activates microcirculation by “scraping” on the skin of our face. Its name means “scraping (GUA) with Red Spots (SHA)”. According to traditional Chinese medicine, these red spots appear when you unblock stagnant blood, and so we follow the meridian lines on its application.
Gua Sha can also be used in the body (mainly in the east) in order to reduce musculoskeletal pains and inflammation. It offers pain relief, helps balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. After using it on our body redness appears. This does not happen to our face.
Gua Sha is proof that we do not need expensive tools, treatments and products for our face to glow.
Let’s see everything we need to know about Gua Sha.
Gua Sha benefits:
- Reduces swellings and dark circles
- Increases collagen production due to highly perfusion
- Tightens the skin and significantly reduces resources
- Filling lines and wrinkles
- Reduces inflammation
- Combats headaches
- Naturally stimulates the skin and makes it more vigorous
How do you choose a gua sha:
When you start looking for Gua Sha, you will find yourself with many choices. Based on my experience, all of them are doing exactly the same and it is up to you what you want to choose.
The first choice you have to make is regarding the stone. There is jade, pink quartz, amethyst, etc. I suggest to select the stone based on its properties and how it can benefit you. You can read the article about Jade Roller properties to get a first impression. The second thing you should do is to decide about the shape of Gua Sha. It is better to fit your face angles and to have a handle that makes you comfortable using.
How do you use Gua Sha for the face:
First of all, we need to hydrate the skin very well so that it won’t get injured. You can use a viscous facial cream or moisturising oil. The moves I make with Gua Sha are always outward and upward (towards the ears). I repeat each move 3-5 times. Below is a very explanatory image 😉.
Finally, I would like to tell you that you can always make an appointment with me and we can further discuss the needs of your face and how to properly use Gua Sha! Also, you can get the Gua Sha Massage program and create a wonderful routine!
