Immerse yourself in the ancient world of beauty and serenity with Gua Sha, a centuries-old Chinese skincare technique. In this article, we explore the benefits of Gua Sha for skin, and how to incorporate it into your skincare routine to achieve radiant, revitalized skin.
- What is Gua Sha?
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese method of facial massage using a stone tool, generally jade or rose quartz (we offer a Rose Quartz Gua Sha in our store ). This technique helps improve blood circulation, relax facial muscles, and promote lymphatic drainage for healthy-looking skin.
- Benefits of Gua Sha for the Skin:
- Stimulation of Circulation: Gua Sha promotes blood circulation, which helps oxygenate skin cells and promotes better absorption of nutrients.
- Reduction of muscle tension: the sliding movements of Gua Sha help relax the facial muscles, thereby reducing tension and facial stress.
- Lymphatic drainage: by stimulating the lymphatic system, Gua Sha helps eliminate toxins, thereby reducing puffiness and swelling.
- Improved elasticity: Regular use of Gua Sha can promote collagen production, thereby improving skin elasticity.
- How to Use Gua Sha in Your Skincare Routine:
First of all, you must thoroughly clean your face and neck. Then, apply “ Le Lumineux ” Serum to the entire neck and face to facilitate the movement of the Gua Sha . Use the different shapes on the Gua Sha to massage your entire face. For optimal results, integrate Gua Sha into your routine 2 to 3 times a week.
Here are tips for use:
- The neck: use the hollow part of the Gua Sha. Simply slide the Gua Sha from bottom to top, all around the neck.
- The cheeks: still with the hollow part of the Gua Sha , go up along the cheeks, always from the inside to the outside. You can also make a light acupressure point at the temples with the round side of the Gua Sha.
- The forehead: slide the Gua Sha starting from the middle of the forehead outwards.
Gua Sha offers a holistic skincare experience, combining tradition and modernity. By integrating this technique into your skincare routine, you can discover more radiant, relaxed skin and a beautiful anti-aging effect.
