Rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Gua Sha is used to improve overall well-being and for healthy, smoother-looking skin.
Pair your Gua Sha with our Root Journey Firm & Smooth Facial Serum to boost absorption and send nutrients to areas that may have been starved because of blockage.
Benefits from using your Gua Sha consistently:
- helps produce collagen
- sculpts and tones facial muscles
- softens fine lines and wrinkles
- treats and prevents sagging skin (helps lift and tighten)
- aids in eliminating dark circles around the eyes
- decreases puffiness
- speeds the healing time of breakouts and pimples
- brightens the complexion
- revitalizes dry skin
- helps drain away inflammation
- stimulates circulation
- relieves muscle tension (face, neck, and shoulder)
- drains lymph fluid (which is often filled with toxins and waste) out of the cells to be cleansed
- aids in breaking up and releasing the skin from dark spots and hyper-pigmentation
- helps relieve headaches

How to use:
Cleanse skin with our Root Journey Nourish & Clarify Facial Cleanser or your preferred cleanser to gently remove impurities.
Apply the Root Journey Firm & Smooth Facial Serum or your preferred blend of organic facial oils, covering the face and neck.
Start with one side of your face.
Neck: With the large inner curve towards the neck, work the tool upward towards your chin – 5-10 times
Under the chin: Use the large inner curve to sweep from the middle of the soft under-chin (where a double chin would show up) out to the bottom of your earlobe. 5-6 times
Jawline: Using the small inward curved section, from the middle of the chin, under the lower lip, sweep out to the earlobe. 5-6 times
Cheeks: Using the small outward curved section, sweep from the corner of the nose out to the middle of the ear 5-6x. Switch to the big outward curved section and starting from the corner of the lips, sweep under the cheekbone towards the earlobe. 5-6 times
Under-eye: Be especially light and slow here. With the small outward curved section of the tool, starting from the under-eye area, where "eye bags" would show up, sweep out towards the temple, all the way to the hairline - 5-6 times
Brow area: Using the small outward curved section, sweep from the inner corner of the brow out to the temple. Avoid any pressure on the eye or eyelid itself and stay on the brow bone. 5-6 times
Third eye (lower forehead): Use the large inner curve. Stroke from the center of the eyebrows up to the hairline. This one is especially relaxing for the nervous system and great for insomnia and migraine, so do more strokes if it speaks to you! 5-10 times
Upper forehead: With the large inner curve, starting from the center of the upper forehead, trace down the hairline, over the temple, then curve behind the ear, and down the side of the neck. 5-6 times
Repeat the whole routine on the other side of your face.
