Step 1: Cleanse your face
Before using the Gua Sha, make sure your face is clean and free of makeup by cleansing using Gentle Milk Cleanser or Sol Oil.
Step 2: Apply facial oil or serum
Next, apply a few drops of our Sol Oil or Moon Rejuvenating Oil or your favourite serum to your skin. This will help the Gua Sha glide smoothly over your skin and prevent any friction or irritation.
Step 3: Hold the Gua Sha at the right angle
When using the Gua Sha tool, it's important to hold it at a 15-30 degree angle to your skin. This ensures that you're using the edge of the tool to apply gentle pressure to the skin, which can help stimulate circulation and promote lymphatic drainage. Be sure to use light pressure and avoid applying too much force, which can cause discomfort or irritation.
Step 4: Start with the neck and décolletage
Begin by using the curved edge of the Gua Sha to gently scrape along the contours of your neck and décolletage. Use upward strokes and light pressure, moving from the base of your neck up towards your chin and jawline.
Step 5: Move on to the jawline and cheeks
Next, use the flat side of the Gua Sha to gently scrape along your jawline and cheeks. Start at the center of your chin and move outward towards your ears, using light pressure and upward strokes. Repeat on the other side.
Step 6: Use the small curves for the eye area
For the delicate skin around your eyes, use the short edge of the Gua Sha to gently scrape from the inner corner of your eye outwards. Be very gentle and use light pressure, avoiding the eye itself.
Step 7: Use the U edge for the neck
Run the U edge down the sides of the neck, and any other angled areas.
Step 8: Move on to the forehead
Finally, use the long edge of the Gua Sha to gently scrape along your forehead, starting at the center and moving outwards towards your hairline. Use light pressure and upward strokes.
Step 9: Switch to the comb edge
Flip the Gua Sha over and use the comb edge to gently massage your skin in a downward motion. This can help stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage, while also helping to distribute your facial products evenly across your skin.
Step 10: Finish with a moisturiser or night cream
After using the Gua Sha, apply more Sol Oil or Moon Rejuvinating oil to your skin - alternatively finish with Bioactive Moisturiser or Night Firming Cream.
