While Gua Sha implements can be comprised of a variety of materials, we prefer the smooth, cool beauty of crystal quartz. Quartz stones are prismatic crystals of silicon and oxygen compressed by geologic forces into hardened, sparkling light. Throughout history, the innate enchanting, reflective colors of quartz stones have attracted healers and humans because quartz naturally amplifies energy and seems to transpose its own light onto the human receiver.
Gua Sha Use: Wash the face and neck with your favourite Best Skin Ever or spritz with Rose Glow Complexion Mist, and smooth on a generous amount of serum (Rose Glow, Soothsayer, or any Best Skin Ever), for great glide. Simply select the perfect curve in the implement to hug the area you are Gua Sha-ing, and if you have the Multi, use the little comb to massage out lines and wrinkles. Be sure to move the tool upward and outward to effectively sculpt and smooth the skin.
Begin with the base of the neck and glide upward in long, slow swipes until the whole neck is scraped. Then move to the jaw, the cheeks, the eye area, the forehead, the nose, and the lips, always gliding up and outward. For the very best result, use daily or at least three times per week.
Gua Sha Care: Wash the stone with hot water and a little lather from our clay bar soap, or a little dash of Living Libations shampoo and dry it thoroughly. Store it in the muslin bag in a protected location.
