HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GUA SHA?
Consistency is key and practicing gua sha on a regular basis will prove most beneficial,” advises Francesca. “I’m an advocate of self-care and strongly suggest adding gua sha into your home beauty rituals.Butdon't over do it, as the skin on the face is so delicate.
The skin on your face is sensitive:
The touch and pressure should be very gentle, and you should always sweep the gua sha board across your face in specific motions
Adjust to your goals:
The lighter the touch, the more you’re supporting the lymph fluid, while with more pressure you will be lifting, toning and sculpting the facial muscles.
