Gua Sha face massage: Can we get RID OF the puffiness and the double chin?
I am pretty sure you are familiar with the fact that our facial muscles, pretty much like the muscles on the rest of our body, need massages. They are not only beneficial for your appearance, but it can be really good for our health as well. How so, you may ask? Face massages can really help you release toxins that are trapped in your skin.

How to do the Gua Sha face massage at home?
Before the massage with Gua Sha, just like the massage roller, it should be placed in the refrigerator for a few minutes – the massage will be even more pleasant, and the cooling effect will soothe sensitive and irritated skin. The massage should always be performed on clean skin. Start by removing your makeup, then wash your face with the gel and spritz your face with a light toner.

We did an independent research with the rest of the DeaVita girls, and it turns out that the internet is crazy about these two. I am currently using the Kiehl’s one as my night serum before going to bed, and my skin is glowing in the morning. I personally think that the Virgin Marula oil will be perfect for moisturizing your face in the morning and will make the Gua Sha massager slide on your skin easily.
