What does a Gua sha do?
It may have escaped your notice, but Gua sha is becoming increasingly popular in beauty land. The Gua sha stone has also become a real must-have. Gua sha is a traditional medical treatment from China and has been used for centuries. A Gua sha massage is all about scraping the skin with a smoothly sharpened tool. Before the therapist starts working with this Gua sha scraper, the skin is first lubricated with a special oil. At My Jewellery, you can now buy a Gua sha scraper so you can do it yourself!
Below is a list of what a Gua sha stone can do for you:
It improves blood circulation and promotes taut/smooth skin
Gua sha is the tool for when you want to improve the blood circulation in your face, which has a positive influence on the skin´s ageing process. Gua sha also prevents inflammations (pimples) and gives you a healthy glow.
Helps relax the muscles
Scraping Gua sha over your skin has a relaxing effect. This is because the movement you make with the Gua sha stone breaks down the muscle tissue. This allows your blood to flow better and relaxes your muscles.
Makes the puffiness in your face disappear
Sometimes you may wake up with fluid accumulation in your face. Massaging the skin helps to drain the fluid from your face. A Gua sha is the best tool to get rid of all that fluid quickly and efficiently. This will make all the puffiness disappear from your face!
All in all, the Gua sha relaxes your skin and stimulates cell renewal, tightening your facial contours and giving your skin a fantastic glow. And that, of course, is what we all want!
