Jade Gua Sha
The term gua sha refers to the practice itself - a method of attaining 'sha', which can best be compared to the redness that follows a vigorous cleanse or a quick facial massage - a sure-fire sign that your skin cells are getting an oxygen boost as the blood rushes straight to the rescue. Think “lymphatic drainage," a form of massage that pushes fluids to your lymph nodes, which subsequently process and filter them out of your system. This is the effect you’re aiming for!
Use as part of your morning and/or evening skin care regime, to help enhance absorption of your serum, oil or moisturiser. Best-used with something slippery (serum a great idea or the ingredients left from a sheet mask?) Smooth the stone (in upward motions!) from your clavicle to chin, then up and out along your jawline, over cheekbones and from centre of your forehead to your hairline. Tread gently around the eye area (NO tugging the delicate skin).
Grear tip: store the stone in the fridge so it's cold. Clean your Gua Sha in warm soapy water after each use.
