What your gua sha is made out of matters! Stainless steel is elite, here's why...

Crystal Gua Shas can be a b*tch to clean, even more so because they must be cleaned thoroughly after every, single use... What? Why?

Invisible bacteria, germs and other unhygienic surprises 

Most of us are shocked to find out these crystal stones are porous (containing pores) and have a profound ability to harbour products, dirt, sweat, dead skin cells and breed bacteria in-between use. Yikes!

If you're thinking about cheating the 5 step cleaning system by dunking your Crystal Gua Sha in boiling water - proceed with caution! 

Not too hot, the Crystal might erode! The water has to be "just right" relatively warm and soapy, mixed in with your favourite facial cleanser for a gentle, but deep clean.

After washing, crystals are then to be left out flat to dry completely after being spritz with colloidal silver/ disinfectant to avoid further product build up...

 

Already heard enough?

If all of that sounds like a lot of effort but you love your GUA SHA routine results: buy stainless steel Gua Sha: here.

The cleaning routine is honestly giving us *cleaning the juice maker vibes* 

 

Many of us already consider this face carving tool a "must-have" ritual, yet a staggering 80% of Beauty lovers are unaware that
a) crystals are porous and can harbour bacteria.
b) inadequate tool hygiene can lead to bacterial infections.

Unfortunately, creators rarely stress the importance of cleansing Crystal Gua Shas! This can be harmful to your skin health in the long run.

WE MUCH PREFER STAINLESS STEEL, THERE'S A FEW REASONS WHY... 

Our “body shaper” Gua Sha is made out of sustainable, medical grade stainless steel, which is durable enough to last for a lifetime.

A lot of us have now become accustomed to de-puffing and carving angelic structures and perhaps even new jawlines as a part of our "beauty routine"  therapy and we are not ready to let the Gua Sha go. (Along with skin brushing, infrared saunas & hot cold therapy - all here to stay)

The stainless steel Gua Sha is ideal for swift removal of puffy eyes and dark circles, as well perfectly contouring the face, neck & water-dense areas - you will not miss a thing by swapping to Stainless Steel, except perhaps opening your heart chakra or third eye...

Our stainless steel Gua Sha is cooler, more sustainable and more hygienic and achieves the same result - stimulating cells to produce more collagen which improves the skins radiance, results in much smoother and more lifted looking skin, along with minimised fine lines and wrinkles. It also aids in feeding your skin more of your skincare products -allowing for deeper penetration & absorption of your favourite miracle skin serums.

We recommend these clean beauty serums to accompany your Gua Sha routine:

 

So what does that mean for half the internet with draws full of rose quartz, jade & other crystal versions of this beauty tool...? 

  • Stainless steel is self-cooling, naturally cold without placing it in the fridge. But if you prefer extra cool, why not?
  • In comparison to jade and rose quartz, stainless steel is more durable. (Remember that crystal tools are delicate and can break quite easily - forego the risk of having it break completely by investing in a timeless all-rounder body and face tool.)
  • Stainless steel is non-porous, meaning that air or liquid won’t be able to pass through. In turn, mould can’t grow underneath the surface — that means no risk of bacteria transferring onto your skin! (You should 100% still rinse your Gua Sha, though.)

 

    Gua Sha technique how to: natural face lift

    "Natural Face Lift" Gua Sha Technique:

    1. After cleansing, apply a facial oil or serum to your skin. (We recommend the clean beauty: Kakadu Plum Nourish Ritual by Bluem - Click here
    2. Hold the Gua Sha tool flat against your skin, with the curved edge facing down.
    3. Using light to medium pressure, glide the Gua Sha tool in an upward and outward motion, starting from the centre of your face and working your way outwards.
    4. Repeat each stroke 3-5 times in the same area.
    5. Use the smaller end of the Gua Sha tool to gently massage the under-eye area and around the nose.
    6. Cleanse the Gua Sha tool with soap and water after each use.
