“Gua sha” is a traditional Chinese medical technique where a smooth stone is scraped across the skin to release tension from the face. Its unique wing or fin shape allows you to contour your face as well as aids lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and boost circulation for a healthy glow.
Massaged on the face and neck, you can determine the pressure, from gentle strokes to deeper pressure, or you can use the edge to gently scrape the skin, helping the rejuvenation process.
With the cost of living increasing, indulging in self-care is more important than ever for our mental health. One of the best things about using a gua sha stone or eye roller to massage yourself is that you can easily reap the benefits without leaving your own home. It’s a pleasurable and short addition to your established skincare routine. There’s nothing complicated about it and you can do a facial massage yourself, saving lots of money compared with having a facial at a salon.
