Season 9 Episode 11


If you’re looking to naturally improve the appearance of your skin, you’re in luck! The Gua Sha natural is a natural anti aging tool that works wonders to support your beauty and health. It's my favorite holistic beauty tool that I have been raving about for years, and for good reason.


It's often referred to as "A Natural Face Lift."


What is a Gua Sha?

An ancient Chinese natural therapy that is over 2,000 years old. It improves lymph drainage resulting in a brighter, clearer complexion. It does an amazing job at improving circulation to help clear out waste products like blackheads and pimples while lifting and sculpting the face for a more youthful appearance.

Fun Fact:

The correct way to pronounce the Gua Sha is to say it like this: GUA SAAAAAA. You will want to leave out the "H" and just use a SSSSS sound at the end.


Most people mispronounce it and use an "SH" at the end but I think it is very important that we honor this ancient Chinese tradition and learn how to pronounce it properly. If you speak with any traditional Chinese practitioner you will notice that they pronounce it


"GUA SAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"



Did you know the skin regenerates itself every 28 - 45 days? This means anyone can have fresh younger looking skin at any age. As with any natural beauty remedy it takes time and dedication, but the effort is well worth it.


I see immediate results after using the Gua Sha. My whole face looks brighter, tighter, and lifted. The more you dedicate yourself to this practice the better results you will see. After 28-45 days you should see amazing results.


Pro Tip: I suggest taking pictures so you can track the progress of your skin.



Benefits of using a Gua sha

  • Lifts and sculpts the face

  • Supports tighter and firmer skin

  • Lifts the skin for an uplifted appearance (hello natural facelift!)

  • Reduces fine lines

  • Stimulates the dermis to support collagen production

  • Increase circulation for healthy and glowing skin

  • Minimizes puffiness

  • Clears out waste products like blackheads and pimples

  • Works with the lymphatic system to support health


Pro tips:

From a Licensed Cosmetologist (me, Jessica Rose!)


1.) Clean your Gua Sha before every use. You can cleanse it effectively with warm water and mild soap. Since the Gua Sha is used all over the face it is essential that you clean it after each use and before each use so it doesn't collect dust and dirt.


2.) Cleanse your skin thoroughly with a gentle natural beauty cleanser and apply your skincare all over your face and neck. You want to provide your skin with enough moisture so the Gua Sha can easily glide on your skin without any pulling or dragging.


3.) Before using your Gua Sha make sure your hands are clean to avoid any excess bacteria getting on your face.


4.) Start at the back of the neck and work your way to the front of the face. You can check out my favorite GUA tutorial HERE.


5.) Always keep your Gua Sha flat against your skin. You never want to use it on its side, the edge.


6.) Under the eyes use feather-light pressure. I'm talking extremely light pressure. The skin under the eyes is very delicate, think of it like tissue paper. You never want to pull or tug the under-eye.


7.) Before completing your Gua Sha facial focus on your neck. The lymph nodes in this area can get congested quite easily and it is essential to increase circulation in this area. It is essential to use light pressure. Most people assume that more pressure will be beneficial but it is quite the opposite.


Using too much pressure actually means you are going too deep and you will be working with your facial muscles and NOT your lymphatic system. So keep it light and gently glide your Gua Sha from your chin and down the neck in gentle strokes keeping the tool flat against the skin the entire time.


8.) Make sure to drink plenty of water after using the Gua Sha. This beautiful practice works with the lymphatic system to clear out waste so it is essential to support the process by staying hydrated.


9.) Practice every technique with the Gua Sha 5x's


10.) It should take you a minimum of 10 minutes if you do it properly. The goal is to slowly move the skin on the face upwards for a natural lift. If you do it too quickly you will not get the full benefits. It takes me 20 minutes to do the full face because I take my time and make sure to do it properly.


11.) Enjoy the practice and allow it to be a beautiful moment of self care and love. Give yourself a big smile and take a deep breath after each Gua Sha facial massage. You have just done something beautiful for yourself. You can practice Gua Sha every day if time allows or at least three times per week for the best results.
