Gua Sha is a natural and organic treatment that has numerous skin and health benefits. Although its origins belong to ancient Chinese therapy in medicine, modern skincare enthusiasts are a fan of its dramatic results and benefits. To this day, Gua Sha is a proven technique to scrape away the dead cells of your skin -detoxicating the inner layer and boosting the blood circulation which results in fresh, glowing skin.   

 

Hence, Gua Sha is gaining popularity, especially among women around the world due to its miraculous instant effects - without the use of any harmful chemical. However, before one starts the Gua Sha practice they must understand a few basics to do it right. Here is a guide that offers some answers regarding Gua Sha, like when and how it should be done. 

The Ideal Time to Do Gua Sha  

Well, it can be done at any time of the day or night. However, it’s best to do Gua Sha when you are relaxed and have time as it requires consistency and repetition in movement. Try to make routine by doing it on a similar time of the day, every day at home, so that it becomes a regular practice for you. 

 

How Often Should I Do Gua Sha? 

Well, it’s certainly up to the individual and the results she expects. If you are just looking for a fresh feel upon your skin maybe after every two days or a few times a week is fine. If you desire a lovely uplifted skin and more apparent results then it’s better to do Gua Sha every day.  

 

Be gentle in the beginning especially if you are doing the facial Gua Sha. Start with holding the tool at 45-degree angle and stroke it on an upward direction. Continue to the scrapping in repetition for about 1 to 3 minutes. Make sure you cleanse your face (or any other part of the body) well and apply some oil before you start doing Gua Sha. 

 

Can I do Gua Sha Twice a Day? 

Yes, many beauty and skin experts recommend doing Gua Sha twice a day for the best result! Especially if you want to contour your facial structure and uplift your skin, performing Gua Sha twice a day is more likely to release stress muscle tension, reduce wrinkles and ageing symptoms as well. 

 

Precautions 

The expert does not recommend Gua Sha to those who have acne-prone skin. One should avoid doing Gua Sha, at least until their acne has been treated. It is not a good idea to do Gua Sha when there is a severe break out of pimples. Doing Gua Sha on Dry skin can cause rashes and inflammation. Don’t perform it without oiling and moisturizing your skin first.
