Use a medium pressure and enough oil for your stone to glide effortlessly across the skin without tugging or pulling.
As the skin is stimulated it may get a little red. Don’t worry! It will quickly find its way to a natural glow.
For a pro-level treatment: Start by heating up your Gua Sha in warm water; the heat will enhance penetration of the serum. Finish with a cold Gua Sha, letting it sit in ice water for few minutes. The cold will close pores.
Practice your Gua Sha ritual regularly, 2-3 times weekly is recommended to get gorgeous results.
The more you Gua Sha, the more intuitive it becomes. Soon, you’ll be able to do it in front of the TV and won’t be able to live without it!
