Baie Botanique - Rose Quartz Gua Sha
- How to use
Gua Sha is an incredibly relaxing and holistic therapy performed using gentle strokes to massage, manipulate and stimulate specific energy lines and points on the face. Gua Sha is both the name of the tool used and the technique. Regular use of the Gua Sha boosts circulation – by up to 400 percent it has been reported, taking away toxins and bringing in oxygen and nutrients.
Gua sha treatment relaxes the muscles, gets the energy and blood moving and shifts toxins.
In the morning, it’s about treating puffiness and energising the skin, while at night you work more on relaxing the muscles and releasing tight connective tissue. Use over your favourite facial oil to increase product absorption and reveal a brighter, rejuvenated complexion.
After cleansing, apply a Facial Oil.
Start with the neck: “Always start by opening up the neck. You must release tension from the neck in order to treat the face. It also brings energy up to the face.”
Move to your face: Once you’ve done your neck, move to your face, starting at the jaw and working outward to move congestion away from the centre of your face and down towards your jaw. Move your way up the face and repeat with your under-eyes and forehead. We like to do one side first so that we can see the visible lift.
