How To Use A Gua Sha Massage Tool

My friend recently sent me some before and after pictures of someone using a Gua Sha Massage Tool. She asked me if I thought it was real. Needless to say, I got a chance to talk about one of my favorite beauty tools.


What Is A Gua Sha Massage Tool?

Part of an ancient beauty ritual, using a gua sha massage tool is a natural alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin.

Gua Sha facial massage helps promote a brighter complexion by lifting and contouring the face.

This process also assists with lymphatic drainage.


Is A Gua Sha Massage Tool Worth It?

Yes, the Gua Sha is worth doing.

Especially if you are looking for a non-surgical way to help sculpt and reduce puffiness in your face.

To get the maximum benefits, you will have to do it regularly.  


Are The Gua Sha Results Permanent?

The results will vary based on how often you are doing it.

The important part is that you have to be consistent with it to maintain the benefits. It’s not a one-and-done treatment.

Make it part of your daily beauty routine.


Can The Gua Sha Massage Tool Sculpt The Face? 

The Gua Sha can help lift and contour your face.

It also has the benefit of helping with lymphatic drainage that helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues.

This gives it the appearance of a sculpted face because any visible puffiness is removed.


What’s The Best Gua Sha Facial Oil?

When choosing a facial oil to accompany your Gua Sha facial treatment, look for one that is lightweight and that provides amazing benefits for your skin.

Flora Skinlab has a wonderful vegan nourishing serum concentrate that is a fast-absorbing elixir formulated with a combination of natural oils and extracts to soothe and soften your skin. Packed with powerful antioxidants this serum is lightweight enough to wear day and night.

We also have a vegan rose glow facial oil that is made with a light-textured and non-greasy formula to soothe your skin. Precious rose and ultra-soothing calendula extracts are combined into this luxurious facial oil to help smooth and firm your skin. 

Whichever you choose to use, make sure that it’s lightweight and will nourish your skin naturally.


Pro Tip: If you find that face oil is being absorbed too quickly, use a face mist to add hydration and additional slip. Never pull the delicate skin on your face.


Which Gua Sha Stone Is Best? 

Rose quartz is known for its calming properties, reflection, and self-love.

It doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty either.

Now that Gua Sha is becoming more popular on the market, beware of artificial and synthetic stones. You can tell if it’s a natural stone or not is by touching it at room temperature. If it’s cool to the touch then you know it is a real stone. Artificial stones won’t be cool at room temperature.


Which Gua Sha Massage Tool Shape Is Best? 

This is a personal choice. For me, I like the heart-shaped gua sha stone because it sits nicely in your hand and has the contours you need for a good facial massage.

If you’re looking to add something to your skincare routine, the Gua Sha is a great tool to add.

The benefit is that this is a slow, methodical process that makes you slow down. The process will relax the muscle tension in your jaw and promote lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness in your face.
