Enhance your Facial Features with no Cosmetic Surgery & Stimulate Hair growth with this Ancient Chinese practice.

Have you heard of the Gua Sha stone? Gua Sha stones have been used for centuries in Southeast Asia, dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The Gua Sha can make your jawline appear sharper and cheekbones look more prominent, as well as having amazing health benefits such as providing relief from arthritis and chronic pain. The Gua Sha is an angled stone that is traditionally made from crystal, jade, or quartz. In traditional Chinese medicine, jade balances inner energies and relaxes the nervous system. The use of the jade stone is excellent for reducing puffiness and draining lymphatic fluid, making the stone essential for your contouring and skin lifting needs.

Read on to find out how you can integrate this rediscovered ancient Chinese practice into your skincare routine...

Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese practice that helps improves:

  • Blood circulation
  • Energy flow
  • Skin elasticity
  • Lymphatic drainage 
  • Muscle tension 
  • Ageing skin and wrinkles

What Avant products we recommend using with your Gua Sha

Our skin experts recommend using a facial oil to smooth the skin in preparation for the Gua Sha stone. Our Advanced Bio Restorative Superfood Facial Oil will work in harmony with the Gua Sha stone to help reverse signs of ageing and leave your skin feeling lifted.

How do I use the Gua Sha stone?

Start by applying 2-3 drops of our Advanced Bio Restorative Superfood Facial Oil to your skin. Then, hold the Gua Sha stone at a 45-degree angle and begin to glide the stone against your face in an upwards motion, applying light pressure. Continue to the neck, jawline and chin, massaging upwards to your cheekbones and temples. Always start from the centre of your face and work in an upward and outward motion to create a natural facelift. People who have used this practice 2-3 times a day have started to notice a difference within weeks!

Can Gua Sha stone stimulate hair growth?

There is evidence that working the stone from your forehead through your scalp could also stimulate hair growth. To further enhance this practice, pair this routine with Avant’s Revolumising & Revitalising Biotin Scalp & Hair Treatment. This treatment is designed to thicken your hair and help stimulate hair growth. Whilst Biotin works to thicken the hair and stimulate growth, Hyaluronic Acid provides nourishment, making your hair look revitalised and brightened. This practice is the perfect addition to your nighttime routine; a great way to unwind after a stressful day whilst also providing amazing results.
