Gua sha is a traditional Chinese massage technique designed for overall relaxation and health. This ancient beauty practice is performed using a gua sha tool, along with oil which allows the tool to glide easily over the skin and prevents tugging on the skin.
Benefits of gua sha facial massage:
- promotes lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness
- smooths the look of fine lines and wrinkles
- aids in relaxing facial muscle and jaw tension
- promotes feelings of calm and well-being
- encourages a healthy, radiant complexion
- enhances the application of serums and oils

Shake well before each use (if you see sediment at the bottom of the bottle, it's the incredible pearl powder—simply give the bottle a shake). Apply 4 - 6 drops into the palm of your hand (you may need more or fewer drops according to your skin's moisture needs), then dab onto face prior to using a gua sha tool. Apply additional oil as needed to maintain slip during your gua sha massage.
May also be used at night, without a gua sha tool, as highly moisturizing anti-aging oil for face, neck, and decollate. Use your fingers to rigorously massage, with upward and outward strokes, for 1-2 minutes.
