How to Use Gua Sha For Beginners


Good morning!

I woke up with refreshed skin for a couple of weeks now because I added a skincare routine I didn’t realize would make a difference on both my skin and mental health!  :P

I received this mini Rose Quartz Gua Sha from a PR KIT (sorry I can’t remember from who) but thanks!  It is such a nice yet simple skincare tool and I have been doing this 2-3 x a week.

Gua Sha is a practice of using a tool to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve tension.

According to research (source: Here), here are just some of the many benefits of including Gua Sha in your routine:
  • Stimulates circulation
  • Helps produce collagen
  • Softens fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decreases puffiness
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Diminishes dark circles
  • Temporarily tightens skin
  • Brightens complexion
  • Scuplts facial muscles
  • Releases tightness
I noticed so many times when I started my own Gua Sha Journey.  I tend to NOT stick on a regimen if I find something tedious and I don’t see much result.  With Gua Sha, I don’t mind doing this twice or thrice weekly because of the instant relaxation I felt during the Gua Sha massage.  I can feel the release of my tension almost immediately.  I also see instant brightening!  Check out this photo after approximately 5 minutes of Gua Sha.

You just have to be careful when you do Gua Sha.  Make sure to always use facial oils or heavy creams all over face and neck.  You have to have something to prevent scratching or friction.  I personally have very sensitive skin so even with the right “smoothing agent”, my skin turns red after Gua Sha.  So that prove how sensitive our skin could get so be careful to apply gentle pressure.

Also, do not forget to apply a follow-up moisturizer or facial oil after doing your Gua Sha regimen.  With that I find my skin to be brighter, smoother and softer!  Maybe, you won’t see these results immediately like I do but the stress-free feeling will definitely be there!  Trust me on that!  I am quite excited to do this and I had to stop myself from reaching out my Rose Quartz Gua Sha every night!
