Which Gua Sha to choose? (Done)

The guide to choosing the ideal shape of your Gua Sha

Gua Sha has taken a prominent place in our beauty routines, proving to be a great ally for our skin. However, with all the forms and types of Gua Sha available, how do you know which one to choose? At Pierre de Lune, we are here to guide you. This article will focus on the different types of Gua Sha and how to choose the best one for your specific needs.

The choice of the form of the Gua Sha

The different shapes of Gua Sha have been designed to adapt to different areas of the body and to meet specific needs. Here are some common forms of Gua Sha and their uses:

Heart-shaped Gua Sha : A true all-rounder for facial care. Its delicate silhouette lends itself perfectly to the exploration of sensitive areas of the face, such as the delicate contour of the eyes and lips. With its ability to cover larger areas like the cheeks and forehead, it offers a true full-care experience. Its fine tip, on the other hand, is ideal for precisely targeting specific areas of tension, such as along the nose or the eyebrows, for targeted and deep relaxation.

Half-Moon Shaped Gua Sha : Featuring a wide, ergonomic surface, this Gua Sha is the ideal choice for use on large body areas, such as the thighs and buttocks. It is designed specifically to optimize blood circulation and promote effective lymphatic drainage, two key factors in the fight against cellulite. This Gua Sha is therefore a valuable ally for smoothing and firming the skin, helping to reduce the visible signs of cellulite.

Mushroom Gua Sha : Precisely shaped for the delicate areas around the eyes, this Gua Sha stands out with its soft, rounded profile. It provides a gentle and subtle massage around the eyes, helping to reduce signs of fatigue such as puffiness and dark circles. In addition, it helps to soothe eye tension for a fresh and rested look. It's the tool of choice for a comforting and effective eye care routine.

U-shaped Gua Sha : Perfect for following the contours of the face, it glides easily along the jawline and cheekbones. It is also a great tool for relaxing tense neck and shoulder muscles.

Comb-Shaped Gua Sha : With its multiple "teeth", it is particularly effective at massaging the scalp and promoting blood circulation, providing an experience similar to a scalp massage.

Thus, the shape of your Gua Sha should be chosen according to the area of ​​the body you want to target and the desired effect. Each form has its specificity and offers a unique massage and skin care experience.

Choosing the type of Gua Sha

In addition to the shape, the type of stone used in the Gua Sha is also essential. Each stone has unique properties in lithotherapy. For example, rose quartz is renowned for its anti-aging properties while black obsidian has healing properties. It is therefore important to choose a Gua Sha that meets your specific needs.
