Gua Sha Facials
What is Gua Sha? It’s a traditional alternative therapy that involves massaging your skin with a stone to improve blood circulation. Social media has popularized this technique, but here are some helpful tips before trying this for yourself. (1) Prep your skin by applying a hydrating cream, serum, oil, or balm. Moisturizing first will keep your massage tool from tugging or pulling the skin. (2) Angle the tool correctly. You don’t want to risk agitation by digging the stone into the skin. Lay it flat at a 15-degree angle. (3) Watch your pressure. Less is more when it comes to Gua Sha.
