The Gua Sha is a facial massage tool that has been part of traditional Chinese medicine since the 7th century. This ancient Chinese scraping technique is now used cosmetically to release muscle tension in the face, drain lymphatic fluid, to lift and tighten skin, aiding in the elimination of the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The Gua Sha induces glowy, radiant skin. The Gua Sha can boost the circulation to the skin, flooding the face with nutrients and naturally building both elastin and collagen.

Cultural Appropriation

We acknowledge the Gua Sha is an ancient technique and tool which has been part of traditional Chinese medicine and healing for thousands of years. In recent years, the tool’s popularity has increased and has garnered ‘cult beauty’ status globally, but we have certainly not forgotten the gua sha’s origins.

Gua Sha translates to ‘to scrape sand’ - ‘sand’ referring to the sand-like bruise which can result from the scraping of the skin. The practise was originally used medicinally to treat heat stroke and seasonal colds, and often using whatever was on hand - a soup spoon, coin and even an animal bone. The practise stems from the Eastern belief of yin and yang, where a healthy body is one that is balanced, and disease and ill-health is often associated with imbalance. The gua sha was used to restore stability by releasing the appropriate energy (qi or chi), whether that be excess cold or toxic heat.

We are in the process of aligning Habitual Beauty with a charity, where with each Beauty Tool sale, we’ll donate a portion of the profit. We’ll keep you updated on this partnership.

1. We recommend using on a clean face, with the Habitual Beauty Rejuvenating Facial Oil with the practice to ensure the tool glides easily across the face.

2. Using your nose as an imaginary line, start on the right side of your face, starting at the jawline. 

3. Use the indented side of the Gua Sha, and slide the beauty tool along the jawline up to the base of your ear. Repeat the motion 5-10 times, moving along upwards and out, never back and forth. 

4. Place the Gua Sha on its flat side, at a slight angle, so that it glides over the skin without too much resistance or pulling. Sweep the tool in one long, upwards/outwards motion, towards the outer edges of the face - first from the chin, then the corner of mouth and cheek/nose. Repeat 5-10 times on each line. 

5. Move to your brow, sweeping across from your centre of your face/beginning of brow to the hairline in one horizontal motion 8.

6. Move to your forehead, this time work vertically sliding the Gua Sha from the base of your forehead to the hairline.

7. Repeat on the other side of your face.

8. Once you have worked on those key areas, you can then come back and focus on any wrinkles or fine lines.

9. Finish your Gua Sha ritual by placing the pointed end of the tool in the depression point found in front of your ear. Move the tool up and around the ear, then continue the stroke down the neck. This action drains any toxins that may have accumulated during the routine.

1. Always think “up and out”.

2. Always use your Habitual Beauty Rose Quartz Gua Sha on a clean face.

3. Focus on each area without rushing, mindfully feel each movement, 5-10 slow but firm strokes.

4. If you find the tool isn’t gliding easily and becoming “stuck”, add some more oil.

5. Aim to direct your tool so it is almost flat on your skin.

6. You want the Gua Sha ritual to feel relaxing, yet firm enough to bring a rosy glow to your face. Medium pressure, not to hard, as pressing too hard will result in bruising. Feather light pressure near the eye area. 

Can be used daily.

The morning provides an opportunity to wake up the face, depuff and energise the skin. An evening facial massage is an opportunity to aid relaxation and relieve muscle tension after a busy day.
