Gua Sha Quartz Rose - How to use with a Serum

What is the Gua Sha? 

The Gua Sha is a flat stone made from Rose Quartz. It is a Chinese Medicine Heritage tool that is famous for all its benefits for the skin appearance and health. Our Gua Sha at ELSI is made with certified Rose Quartz and sourced from a female-owned Californian supplier.

Science & Tradition

Using the Gua Sha with our Super Moisturizing Serum would make your skin healthier than ever. Reinvigorate with the Gua Sha, moisturize and protect with our Serum by respecting your Skin Microbiome. Everything is on your hands to solve your skin triggers. Give your skin a new start! 

How to use it?

Face:

Wash your hands with a gentle soap
Makeup: Clean your face with a gentle cleanser and dry with a clean towel. 
No makeup: Put some mid-warm water on your face, dry with a clean towel.

 

  1. Apply 3 to 5 drops of our Let’s Start Over - Super Moisturizing Serum on your hands and spread it on your face by fingers-taping/ Face taping. 
  2. Slide the Gua Sha along the forehead, browline, cheekbones, jawline and gently under the eyes and along the sides of the nose. 
◦  The point is to create heat and circulation by sending blood to the face
◦  You will want to use deep hard pressure, but not to where it is painful
◦  Each section should get 7-10 passes
◦  Do not press too hard to not bruise the skin
◦  Stop using if irritation occurs

  

Body:

The Gua Sha can be used on the entire body to boost blood flow and relax tissue. Use pressured strokes starting at the center of the body moving outwards. On the arms and legs; move in outward and downward movements.

What are the Benefits?

• It works for every type of skin
• Relieve tension in the muscles of the face
• Promote tissue drainage.
• Boost blood circulation
