Care Instructions: Cleanse skin thoroughly. Warm your gua sha tool by rubbing it between your hands. Prime with face moisturiser or serum. Start on one side of face and gently use the smooth edges to scrape and lift the skin from the centre of your face upwards toward the hairline. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times.
