Originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine, gua sha is a face and body massaging technique that can offer up plenty of benefits like decreased puffiness, promote lymphatic drainage, relieve tension, and firm the skin.
Gua sha is usually done with a boomerang-shaped tool typically made of stone like jade or quartz. These tools also come in stainless steel, but those are better for other areas of the body and not recommended for the face.
Pairing gua sha with Daily Treatment Oil is a match made for firm and glowing skin. Our Daily Treatment Oil is packed with seven nutrient-rich botanicals, which nourish and renew deep into the layers of your skin. Featuring 500mg of full-spectrum CBD to moisturize and heal along with powerful oils like Sweet Almond, Litsea, and Olive Squalane, this multipurpose oil will support a range of common skin concerns – from dry skin to sun damage to pore size.
While gua sha facials are available in spas, this treatment is also one that you can do at home. It is a great way to relax and practice self-care.
How To Gua Sha Using Daily Treatment Oil
Start with a clean face and apply 2 pumps of Daily Treatment Oil. If you don’t own a gua sha tool you can always use your fingers!
Start at the middle of the chin and gently glide the tool upwards along the jawline towards the ear. Repeat 3 times on each side of the face.
Move to your under-eye area and with a sweeping motion, move the tool out to the temple, all the way to the hairline. Repeat 3 times on each side.
Move to the forehead starting in the middle of your forehead. Using the flat side of the tool, glide the tool up and toward your temples.
Finish your treatment with a mug of herbal tea or a glass of water to keep you hydrated.
This relaxing gua sha CBD facial treatment can be done 2-3 times a week and many people find that results last longer when done with regularity.
