How do I use my Gua Sha and Facial Roller?

How to use your Facial roller:

Finish: Gently but firmly rolling down the sides of the face and neck and along the collar bone. This step is vital to assist with the elimination of excess fluid and toxins through the lymphatic system.

How do I look after my Gua Sha/facial roller?

We recommend washing your Gua Sha tool with warm, soapy water after each use. Pat dry with a clean towel or cloth before returning it to your Gua Sha pouch for safe keeping. Note: Please be aware, your Gua Sha tool is made from natural stone which can break if dropped on a hard surface. We recommend returning your Gua Sha Tool to its pouch when not in use.

Facial rollers can be dipped in warm soapy water. We recommend drying metal components dry to avoid corrosion.

Why does colour of my Gua Sha/Facial Roller look different to the photos on your website?

Our Gua Shas are made from authentic, natural stone and crystal which can result in slight variations in colour, vein and shape. This does not affect the performance or functionality of your tool. We quality check each piece, to ensure you receive a quality tool with high standards of craftsmanship.

Gua Sha Vs Facial Rolling - Which one is best for me?

Gua Sha massage and facial rolling are complimentary facial massage techniques but they work in different ways to target different things.

 

Facial rolling is a simple way to start incorporating facial massage into your skincare routine. The rolling motion places gentle pressure on the skin which promotes blood circulation and in turn, helps move interstitial fluids by assisting lymphatic flow. You can expect to see reduced puffiness and the appearance of “glowing” skin after each use.

 

Gua sha massage on the other hand not only works to improve skin texture but can also works on the underlying facia and facial muscles. With time, gua sha massage can assist in softening habitual facial expressions, tone the skin and lift the jawline.  You can expect to see both immediate depuffing/brightening result and overtime, experience cumulative benefits of gua sha massage Gua Sha massage.
