Gua Sha and Face Oils: Why do the two work so well together?

by Elise Respicio-Jun August 04, 2022

Gua Sha and face oils are a match made in heaven. Looking to understand why these two things complement each other so well?  Look no further! We’ll teach you the essentials, and you’ll be an expert in no time!

• Face oils give the glide Gua Sha needs

Ever wonder how skincare gurus make Gua Sha look so effortless? The secret is a good face oil! Applying a high-quality oil (likeVelvette’s calming face oil - Night) to the face skin prior to using a Gua Sha tool ensures there is no tugging at the skin or unnecessary friction. This is especially important, as frequent tugging at the delicate skin on your face can cause irritation. Face oils help prevent this!

 

• Gua Sha helps get you ‘the bang for your buck’ from your skincare products

After applying your face oil, using a Gua Sha tool made out of smooth, high-quality material (likeVelvette’s patent-pending Gua Sha) can help with product absorption. This ensures you’re getting the most use out of your products - Which is especially important after investing in a quality oil. 

 

• Using face oils with Gua Sha helps increase overall skin benefits

Using a Gua Sha tool not only helps with product absorption, but also helps increase the efficacy of the product you’re using. For example, when using a product that promotes anti-aging (likeVelvette’s Anti-Aging Face Oil - Night), by taking the time to give yourself a Gua Sha facial massage afterward, you are not only reaping the benefits of the face oil, but also the anti-inflammatory and lymphatic draining properties of the Gua Sha.

 

So now you know exactly why Gua Sha and face oils work so well together! Good news: Velvette is currently offering Gua Sha and Face Oil kits for every skin type.
