Soothing Gua Sha Beauty Tools That Will Rejuvenate Your Skin

Just one gua sha beauty tool offers a multitude of skincare perks including sculpting, stimulating, rejuvenating, and soothing.

What is Gua Sha?

“Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient Chinese healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain.”
When my boyfriend was sick with the cold a few years ago, I remember his mom using a coin like object to scrape his back in order to “cure” the cold. She promised that it improved circulation and would help soothe his body. This alternative practice is said to “help break up chi energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.”  Now we’re finding a gentle version of gua sha in facial beauty skincare.

How to Use Gua Sha in Beauty and Skincare?

Gua Sha tools refer to jade, rose quartz, crystalline, and other semiprecious stones carved to have a firm, flat surface. Unlike traditional gua sha practices used on the body, these tools are meant to be used in an upward motion to better sculpt and soothe the face and neck. It’s especially effective to increase blood flow in the face and stimulate the lymphatic system which results in a healthy, de-puffed look especially in the mornings. The stimulation will also help bring color back to your face. Gua Sha tools with a curved design offer a hugged fit which will aid with circulation — firm but gentle. It’s recommended to use it on a clean face, or with a light serum or oil. Finally, the small size makes these beauty tools an amazing little gadget to bring along during travels to relax stressed skin.

My Experience with Gua Sha Beauty Tools:

I bought myself a rose quartz roller a few months ago because I was seeing the hype and wanted to give it a go myself. I use it a few times a week in the morning right after I cleanse my face and before I apply any of my skincare products. I find it effective to prep my face and I can literally feel my face being drained (in a good way) with the cooling sensation against my skin, and it helps to de-puff my eye bags as well. The roller I bought comes with two ends so I use the smaller one to massage my eyes and nose. I use the larger end for the rest of my face and also to roll my neck which makes my chin and jaw feel more lifted. It feels AMAZING and I’m tempted to purchase a skincare fridge to make the sensation even better!
