Gua Sha-ing (?)
Similar to the popular practice of jade rolling, gua sha is a technique stemming from ancient China which employs a stone tool to massage your skin. When used on the face (a somewhat recent adaptation of the traditional "scraping" function), the supposed benefits include lymphatic drainage (yep, that again!), de-puffing, improved circulation, and overall skin radiance. When used consistently over time, it could result in a natural "face lift." Now, while I've had gua sha stones in my skincare repertoire for some time now, I tend to struggle with the "consistency" part of the process. I've also only utilized them in the general sense - swooping it upwards on my face. But recently I've discovered more targeted tutorials for getting the most out of the routine and well, with my 30th birthday coming up this year, I plan on literally doing the most with it. Hello, face lift!
