Please read my comprehensive blog post all about gua sha: https://thecuriouscoconut.com/blog/ho...

Use this video as a starting point to empower you to find your body's own BEST facial gua sha technique. There is no one single correct way to do facial gua sha, just like there is no single correct way to dance or cook a chicken. Don't be shy to experiment with what feels the best on your skin and what brings you the most dramatic results you're looking for. I began this practice after my acupuncturist told me it would help my eye health. I absolutely fell in love with making it a non-negotiable part of my daily skincare regimen.

My current favorite non-toxic and high performance products to use to prep my skin for gua sha:

1. cleanser - I either use a konjac sponge (https://amzn.to/2WTz2Mv), the 5YINA Divine Bio-Adaptive Cleanser (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/divine-...) or the Beautycounter Cleansing Balm (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/cleansi...)

2. toner - I love the 5YINA Quiescent Hydrolat (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/quiesce...)

3. treatment - I use Beautycounter's Intense Moisture Serum (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/intense...)

4. moisturize - Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/adaptiv...)

5. facial oil - 5YINA Quiescent Beauty Oil (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/quiesce...) but I also use the Beautycounter oils on other days (https://thecuriouscoconut.com/vitamin...)
