What is LED Gua Sha and why is it the most popular device in skin care right now?!
THE MOST POPULAR DEVICE IN SKINCARE!
FIRST OF ALL, LETS FIND OUT WHAT REGULAR GUA SHA IS:
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese practice for energy flow and blood circulation. Using an angled stone—usually made out of crystal, bone or horn—the tool is used to firmly scrape the skin on the face to promote blood flow and energy redirection. Promoting bright, improved skin, as well as a 'natural facelift,' the tool has been plucked out of the history books and onto the top shelves of beauty obsessives everywhere.
DOES GUA SHA ACTUALLY WORK?
Like all beauty treatments, there is a certain level of scepticism involved with Gua sha. Why spend minutes every day rubbing a rock on your face if it isn't actually going to help at all?
Luckily, there are studies out there that speak to its results. Most of them agree that consistent use of the tool helps improve microcirculation (some studies suggest an increase of up to 400%), and blood flow to the face.
HOW DOES GUA SHA WORK?
Apply your facial oil to the skin to allow for slip. Hold the tool at a 45 degree angle, apply firm pressure and scrape the skin with long strokes in an upwards and outwards motion. Start from the neck and work upwards.
The eventual effect of the practice results in better skin. Blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and skin elasticity are all improved, while things like muscle tensions and wrinkles are reduced.
