Gua Sha is Not a Fruit

About Subtitle

A Gua Sha is a flat tool, made of semi-precious stone, that is used to massage the face. Even though the Gua Sha face tool has recently gone mainstream, it is a lot older than you think. This modern-day face scraping technique is based on a traditional Chinese healing practice known as Gua Sha. Gua means to stroke or press, and Sha refers to redness. According to early practitioners, the redness that is obtained through scraping encourages the skin to heal itself. While the modern-day Gua Sha practice is less intense, it will still leave you with a well-sculpted face along with other remarkable results!

What Are The Benefits Of A Gua Sha?

After using a Gua Sha properly and regularly, you will notice these benefits -

1. Lymphatic Drainage

A slow lymph system can cause puffiness, swollen skin, fatigue, acne, and other skin problems. Since lymph circulation is only possible through muscle movement or massage, using a Gua Sha is the best way to increase it. Read more about Lymphatic drainage here.

2. Deals with Cystic acne

A common misconception is that you cannot use a Gua Sha on acne. The Gua Sha tool helps reduce flare-ups, redness, and the size of acne by moving congestion and improving circulation. Just remember to never use a Gua Sha on broken skin and pustules. Read more on how to heal your acne with Gua Sha & Face Roller, here.

3. Fights acne scars 

The Gua Sha brings fresh blood to the surface of the skin which renews skin cells, hence reducing the visibility of acne scars. For effective and quick results you can use your Gua Sha on Martiderm’s Vitamin C Serum or Shankara Kumkumadi Oil

4. Reduces Puffiness

Since the Gua Sha removes lymph and other fluids from your face, your skin tightens and becomes more chiseled.

5. Say goodbye to dark circles and dull complexion 

An improved blood circulation results in lesser dark circles and a youthful glow.

6. Softens Wrinkles and Fine Lines 

The Gua Sha relaxes your stiff facial muscles and tissues, thus smoothening out aging signs.

7. Contours & Sculpts Jawline and Cheekbones 

Consistently scraping the Gua Sha on your face in the correct manner will lead to a defined jawline and cheekbones. Your face will begin to look naturally contoured as time passes by!
