Beauty tools, whether it be jade rollers, facial massagers, or microcurrent devices have rapidly become one of the biggest trends in skincare in recent years, and while some of them surely seem like nothing more than a gimmick suitable selfies rather than improving your complexion and refining your angles, a lot of them actually do yield some pretty impressive results. One of the latest tools garnering popularity by both beauty influencers and the professionals are gua sha facial tools. Originating from Chinese medicine, these jade, amethyst, and rose gold gadgets are used to contour the jawline, stimulate blood flow to the skin’s surface, and help promote lymphatic drainage—just to name a few benefits.
Gua Sha loosely translated to “scraping” in Chinese, but these tools aren’t exactly used to shed or scrape the skin’s surface like an exfoliant. Rather, they work to lift, sculpt, and define by way of upward, slow motions. Unlike similar tools, this one features a flat shape with a curved end, which beautifully your angles tightly allowing you to apply more pressure to the skin and therefore give you more instant results. The best part is that, while estheticians and beauty experts may swear by them, you don’t have to book a pricey appointment to reap their benefits—there are plenty of high-quality options on the market that will do just the trick without breaking the bank.
