How To: At Home Gua Sha Facial Massage

Inspired by traditional Chinese beauty and health culture, the Gua Sha stone is a facial massage tool that can help increase circulation, reduce the look of puffiness and promote positive energy in your face, eyes and neck.

For optimal results, try pairing the use of the Gua Sha stone with COSMEDIX serums or moisturizers. Whether you use your Gua Sha stone in the day or at night, the appearance of your greatest features can improve with each use. To get the best results, use your Gua Sha stone in an upward motion with three to six swipes per usage in the area that you would like to see improvement. If that isn’t reason enough for you to use the Gua Sha stone for optimal skin and circulation health, here are a couple more reasons:

  • If you use Gua Sha at least three times per week on your face, jawline, decollete, neck, it can revitalize and enhance the appearance of your greatest features
  • The smoothness and shape of the rose quartz can give a calming and cooling effect on the skin

The Gua Sha stone can also help the appearance of your face, neck, chin, lips, eyes and brows. Gliding the Gua Sha stone across your skin can help give your skin a healthier, glowing appearance. Beauty lovers all over are sure to flock to the new COSMEDIX Rose Quartz Gua Sha’s unique shape and smooth, cooling texture that will make taking care of your skin care much easier.

How to use:

Start at the center of your forehead and glide the tool outward and upward from the brow bone to the hairline.

Start at the nose and work the stone upwards in a swooping motion along the cheeks and cheekbones, moving outward toward your ears. Repeat 3-5 times.

Undereye Area
Start in the inner corner of the eye and gently glide outwards towards the temple to diminish the appearance of undereye bags.

Glide the stone over your lips 5–7 times for a fuller-looking pout.

Jawline and Chin
Glide the stone upwards from the center of your chin to the earlobe to create a natural-looking contour.

For a lifted look, swipe the stone from the bottom of the neck to the jawline in upward strokes.

Cheers to 20 Years!

20 years ago, COSMEDIX began paving a new way in the skin care industry, revolutionizing the way products were formulated for optimal skin health. Driven by the desire to deliver gentle, effective and safe skin care solutions for all skin tones and concerns, COSMEDIX has grown into a globally recognized brand at the intersection of luxury and cosmeceutical. From Nobel prize-winning technology to powerful, plant-based formulas, this full product mix features facials, treatments, metabolic peels and at-home regimens that renew, resurface and refresh the look of skin. 

Take a look into the first 20 years of this game-changing skin care brand that was built to find the balance between clean and effective skin care. 

COSMEDIX was created by aestheticians for aestheticians as one of the first chirally-correct skin care brands deemed safe for all skin tones. At the time, there was a common misconception amongst the industry that clean, natural and organic products wouldn’t yield transformative results. Together, they sparked a positive shift in the industry that prioritized overall skin health through strict formulation standards and superior innovations. 

Astral Health & Beauty takes ownership in COSMEDIX and completes a total acquisition of the brand by 2003. Astral Health & Beauty is a family of brands that make every day a little bit easier—and better—for women and men around the globe. With innovative and transformative products, these four brands, including COSMEDIX, PÜR, butter LONDON and Aloette, redefine the face of beauty. 

In prompting industry change that redefines the way people view clean skin care, COSMEDIX develops the revolutionary AGP Complex, which enables high doses of Retinol delivery without inflammation by converting to trans-retinoic acid once absorbed into the skin. 

COSMEDIX created the proprietary formula, LG-Retinex, which is a powerful, yet gentle, blend of retinol and retinal in an intelligent lip encapsulation. This game-changing formula helps neutralize retinol’s trademark irritation without compromising its performance. 

As a brand that proudly serves the finest spas, skin care professionals, dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide, COSMEDIX created National Aesthetician Day™, October 15th, to formally celebrate skin care professionals. This month-long celebration allows us to shine light and give thanks to those who work tirelessly to help others achieve the complexion of their dreams. 

Today, COSMEDIX offers an exquisite line of customized solutions that suit the need of the skin care professional seeking solutions to optimize their professional treatments and the retail consumer wanting a healthier approach to effective skin care. Specializing in green and clean initiatives, COSMEDIX’s cruelty-free line blacklists petro-derived ingredients and incorporates more than 100 different botanical ingredients for products that are good for you and the environment.
