Using a light touch, hold the gua sha tool with the curved side to your face and glide it gently up and out, starting with the neck, jawline, chin, and around the mouth, between three and five times per area. Then sweep across cheeks and gently glide under the eyes, across your eyebrows and from your forehead up to your hairline. Do this treatment at least a few times a week, preferably in the morning, for best results. Some people like to keep their gua sha in the fridge in between treatments.
Gua sha is best done after both cleansing the face and applying a moisturizer or facial oil, as the gua sha massage not only gives your skin a ‘workout,’ but also helps products’ nutrients absorb better into skin. Using an oil-based serum or lotion before gua sha gives the tool maximum slip.
