Facial gua sha is a massage technique designed to relieve tension in the muscles of the face or body, boost blood circulation and encourage lymphatic drainage to banish bloat. It helps break up fascia — the connective tissue that hugs muscles but can sometimes interfere with optimal circulation — and can even help to make your face look slimmer (albeit temporarily). Devotees swear by its ability to ward off headaches and jaw pain and brighten skin (due to the boost in circulation). Some even consider it a Botox alternative for its ability to unkink settled-in muscle folds.

"Imagine you have a leg injury: The muscles are all knotted up from the trauma and there is scar tissue restricting circulation. You'd be sent for physical therapy to help release the muscles and break down the scar tissue, so that your leg could heal," explains Plug. "The chronic stress of our day-to-day lives plays out on our faces as a furrowed brow, a clenched jaw. Facial gua sha is a therapy we can apply to uncoil the daily buildup of stress we experience in the face, and restore health, vitality and glow."

But wait, you're thinking, this sounds exactly like the jade roller I ran out bought last year. What's the difference?

"Facial gua sha is more powerful than a roller," says Plug. "Once you have the basics down, a gua sha tool becomes like a Swiss Army knife, one tool with a dozen functions and uses. Depending on your pressure, which edge you use, your speed and direction, you can either lift or de-puff, work on surface lines or deep muscular tension.

 

Material: Real Aventurine crystal

 

Purpose: Lift & revitalize the appearance of skin with stimulating massage.

The Gua Sha facial massage is an ancient beauty ritual known for its ability to breathe new life into the skin.

Used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, this effective treatment will smooth away the appearance of wrinkles and help to visibly firm the facial contours while awakening skin’s natural glow.

When used around the eyes, it helps reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness.

The Crystal Contour is hand carved specially for the face, making your Gua Sha facial massage ultra-effective. Exceptional quality Rose Quartz makes this treatment even more luxurious and high vibrational.

Simple to use, yet super effective, apply our face oil or argan oil and glide the Gua Sha tool over skin.

Gently use the smooth edges to scrape and lift the skin from the center of your face upwards toward the hairline.

Directions

- Holding the curved side of the gua sha toward your face, start with the neck and lightly glide it up and out. To remove fluid, make sure to always stroke downward down the neck.
- Next, stroke the skin between three and five times over your jawline, chin, and mouth area. Always use brief strokes that move only in one direction, not back and forth. Work muscles into relaxation first gently, then firmly, to minimize puffiness.
- To calm and de-puff, press the tool flat against the skin and then gently glide over any redness or beneath the eyes.
- Finally, raise the brow bone with a few light horizontal strokes of the gua sha or alleviate tension between the brows by holding and pressing upward.
