DIRECTIONS: After cleansing, apply a product that has some slip, like a facial oil. Start with the neck to bring energy up to the face. Once you’ve done your neck, move to your face, starting at the jaw and working outward to move congestion away from the centre of your face and down towards your jaw. Move your way up the face and repeat with your under-eyes, eyelids, and forehead. We like to do one side first so that we can see the visible lift.
Guidelines for using your Gua Sha: Use your Gua Sha at a 15-degree angle (almost flat) as you massage your skin; so that the stone comes into contact with the skin and that it benefits from its healing and rejuvenating properties. For best results ensure pressure is firm over certain areas like the neck and jaw but that it is light and gentle on the rest of the face. Make sweeping rolls under the chin toward the collar bone, working outwards towards the sides of the neck. Make sure to support the skin with your opposite hand, always following through into the hairline.
Using your Gua Sha with facial acupressure points. Facial acupressure improves the metabolism and the blood circulation in the skin; this tightens the areas that are being massaged and pressed, leaving you with a relaxed, youthful look. In facial acupressure, you compress key points on the skin’s surface to stimulate your body's natural healing abilities. For enhanced cooling and anti-inflammatory benefits, place your Rose Quartz Gua Sha in the fridge for 15 mins before rolling.
