Slim Down Your Face with Gua Sha

Using Gua Sha Massage Techniques 

When it comes to beauty, we do tend to splurge a little (or a lot) when it comes to optimising our skincare regime with various beauty tools or gadgets on the market. You've probably seen the popular ones, like electronic facial devices, blackhead suckers, or using pretty tools like natural crystal "Gua Sha" to slim down your face. But does it really work?

how 'Gua Sha' can benefit you

"Gua Sha" is an age-old technique that uses a facial massage tool (wood, crystals, etc.) to massage the face. The massage strokes are not only therapeutic; they're said to help relieve water retention, reduce under-eye puffiness, soften fine lines, firm the skin, and lift it. These effects may be temporary, but with regular use at least 2–3 times a week combined with a lifting or firming serum or cream, you can reach your V-shape goals. All thanks to the lymphatic drainage techniques

It is recommended to use oil- or water-based skincare products with gentle pressure to avoid damaging your skin or hurting yourself.

BTW, you can't just swipe the guasha tool across your face. Google "facial gua sa massage" and you'll be able to find many facial lymphatic drainage massage technique steps online to help you get started. Here are some examples from us below!

They can take the shape of a hand-held roller, angel wing, sea-horse or a heart. Rest assured that each shape has its benefits.
