Gua sha has been shown to increase microcircuation in the skin by 400%, which has a direct action on relieving facial muscle tension. It increases collagen, a structural protein responsible for keeping skin youthful. Lymphatic drainage is also enhanced, relieving facial fluid retention and puffiness. You'll experience firmer and healthier skin after the first use when using the right massaging techniques, as well as more prominent results with continued use.
Our Antigravity Gua Sha is an elevated alternative to the standard options, as it features a larger design and ribbed edge to target areas over the whole body and at a deeper level.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
1. Apply a serum or facial oil
Applying over clean skin, the serum or facial oil will provide slippage for the gua sha to easily glide over the skin. Our Botanical Recovery Serum is a fan-favourite when it comes to using a gua sha. We recommend using 8-10 drops.
2. Use the tool at an angle, in outward, sweeping motions
Keep the gua sha at a 15 degree angle to the skin, almost flat but not quite. Starting from the center of your face, use unilateral strokes towards to glide the gua sha towards the outside of your face. The pressure should be gentle but firm.
3. Pulse at the end of your stroke
End your stroke by gently massaging in pulses in the outside areas of the face.
