What Is Jade Rolling & Gua Sha?
The Gua sha is a traditional Chinese tool that people have been benefited from for thousands of years now. Gua sha has proven to provide benefits like facial massage, lymphatic drainage, and face contouring.

Does Gua Sha Work?
The answer is yes! Gua sha works well. It has proven to deliver results like reducing inflammation and redness by enhancing lymphatic drainage that helps the skin heal naturally. Some even call it a new natural Botox. But as we always promote truth and practicality, we may not exaggerate the benefits of Gua sha to be 100% equivalent to Botox. Having said that we can also not completely ignore the miraculous results Gua sha has produced in so many users. It relieves jawline tension, reduces fine lines and other signs of aging. Unlike the artificial face-lifting methods, Gua sha naturally heals your skin to heal and look rejuvenated.

How To Use Your Gua Sha & Jade Roller
No need to worry about your next parlor appointment. You can get a natural facelifting experience all on your own by following these simple steps:
For The Neck
Our neck is the most affected part when coming office or family stress. Gua sha helps you release all your neck strains in a few minutes. Simply place the gua sha or jade roller at an angle on the bottom of your neck and slowly move towards your face. Next, place the gua sha close to your ear and slowly move down the neck. In this way by enhancing blood flow and lymphatic drainage, you can massage your neck.
For The Jawline
Similar to the neck massage, you can massage your jawline as well. You just have to glide the gua sha along the jawline. This not only releases tension but also enhances your jawline. Using gua sha on the jawline might be a little tricky but not to worry. You just have to glide up from the bottom of your jawline towards the cheekbone by using the wider part of the Gua sha. Repeating the process even for less than a minute will make you feel relaxed and comfortable.Â
For Puffy Eyes
Along with other facial parts, Gua sha is very effective against puffiness around the eyes as well. You need to gently glide the tool across the undereye area and take it to the temple and even to the hairline. Repeat the process a few times until you find your eyes to be easy and relaxed. For added effectiveness, you may also cool the gua sha or roller.
For The Forehead
You need to glide the narrow part of gua sha from your eyebrows to your hairline. You can adjust the pressure according to your comfort. Repeating the process a few times will release all your tensions and make you feel relaxed.
