A rose quartz facial massage tool, the gua sha is an ancient beauty tool that, when pulled across the skin stimulates micro-circulation, increases blood flow to the skin and aids lymphatic drainage. This can help to tone the skin, help it feel firmer and lifted, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and drain away puffiness.
Olixa's Gua Sha is perfect for...using 2-3 times per week to promote a healthy skin condition
- Designed with a serrated edge to get more out of your facial massage
- Made with 100% Handcarved Rose Quartz, a precious stone often linked to the heart chakra and associated with love kindness and compassion
- Provides a soothing energy to help smooth and calm the skin
- Keep in the fridge for an extra cooling skincare ritual
- Due to natural variations in the stone, your Gua Sha is individually unique in colour, texture and pattern. Small indentations are also normal
How to use the Gua Sha:
Start with one side of the face, apply 3-5 strokes per area before moving to the other side of your face. The tool should be used at a flat angle - approximately one finger width between the Gua Sha and your skin - and with a light pressure.
Use the long flat edge of the Gua Sha for your neck and pull it upwards towards the jawline. This encourages blood flow to the face.
Using the small round indents, pull the Gua Sha along the jawline, starting at the chin and drawing it up to your ear.
Take the long flat edge of the Gua Sha and pull it along your cheek from nose to ear. Then use the small round edge and press it flat under your eye. Use a gentle rolling and pumping action, moving from the inner eye to the outer eye.
For brows, use the serrated edge and pull from the inside brow to the outside or use on the forehead, holding it at a perpendicular angle to the skin and rub the pointed edge vertically across any forehead lines.
You can also comb the serrated edge through the hairline before finishing the ritual by drawing the long flat edge down the neck from under the ears, to encourage lymphatic drainage.
