How to use Gua Sha Stone:
1. Start with a clean face and prep skin with a facial oil or serum.
2. Each stroke is identified on the diagram by arrows. Use the thinner, contoured edges of your Gua Sha stone to glide along the face and neck ensuring that you only glide in the direction indicated by the arrows.
3. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times. A temporary redness may appear, which is perfectly normal and is referred to as “Sha”.
4. Locate the acupuncture points on your face, (marked with dots on the diagram). Use a pointed corner of your stone to gently press on the acupuncture point and hold for a few seconds. Repeat process on each acupuncture point to stimulate.
5. Clean your Gua Sha stone with soapy water when you have finished, ready for next use.
How to use Jade Roller:
- Cheeks & jaw. Place the large end of the jade roller on your chin, apply medium pressure and roll it towards your ear. Repeat in the same spot 5 – 6 times, then move up along your cheek. Repeat on the opposite side.
- Forehead. Next, move up to your forehead. Starting in the middle of your forehead, use the large end to roll towards your ears. Repeat in the same motion 5 – 6 times then switch to the opposite side of your forehead.
- Under eyes. Using the small end, apply medium pressure and roll from the inner eye towards to outer corner. Repeat 10 – 15 times and switch to the other eye.
- Brows. Follow the same method as the under eyes, just above the eyes!
- Crows feet. Use the small end, apply medium pressure and move the small end of the roller rapidly up and down on the corner of your eye. Repeat on the other side.
- Jaw. I always finish off using the small end of the roller to dig deep into the join of my jaw. I press hard, move back and forth and then use rapid rolling on spots that feel especially tight.
