The use of the gua sha tool has been around for centuries. It is said that applying pressure on the skin via a gua sha can help improve blood circulation, therefore creating a healthy glow. The massage itself helps de-puff, relax tired muscles, and emphasize the contours of the face. It is recommended that you do this self-massage ritual at least once a week.
If you've been wanting to use a gua sha tool but you find the tutorials confusing, check out this guide we found on Instagram. Aside from demonstrating the strokes, it also shows the proper position of the tool for each area on the face. It's pretty straightforward—you'll be a gua sha aficionado after a few self-massage sessions!
(Ed's note: Always apply facial oil first before a gua sha massage to prevent the tool from tugging the skin.)
