Cleanse your skin and apply a facial oil.
Start with one side of the face, apply 3-5 strokes per area and once you have finished one side of the face, move onto the other side.
Neck: use the long flat edge of the Gua Sha and pull it upwards to the jawline. This will encourage a fresh flow of blood to the face ready to start the treatment.
Jawline: use the small round indents and pull the Gua Sha along the jaw, moving from the chin to the ear.
Cheeks: use the long flat edge and pull the Gua Sha from the nose to the ear.
Undereye: use the small round edge and press it flat under your eye. Use a gentle rolling and pumping action, moving from the inner eye to the outer eye.
Brow: use the serrated edge and pull from the inside brow to the outside.
Forehead: use the serrated edge, hold the tool at a perpendicular angle to the skin and rub the pointed edge vertically across any forehead lines.
Hairline: use the serrated edge and comb through the hairline.
Finish by pulling the long flat edge down the neck, under the ears, to encourage lymphatic drainage.
Always clean the Gua Sha tool before and after use with a mild cleanser.
Apply a facial oil or serum before using the tool to maintain enough slip on the skin. The Gua Sha should not drag or catch on the skin.
Pull the Gua Sha along your skin, rather than push against it.
Use the Gua Sha at a flat angle – with one finger width between the tool and your skin – and apply light pressure.

Everyone’s face is different, so use the edge of the tool that feels good for you.
Have fun! The more you use your Gua Sha, the more intuitive it will become.
