Ever wonder how celebs like Kendall Jenner get that flawless, sculpted look? The secret might be a cool little tool called a Gua Sha! Forget fancy treatments – Kendall just shared her super easy Gua Sha routine on TikTok, which only takes a minute. Here's the scoop on Gua Sha and how to try it yourself.

Gua Sha (pronounced "gwa sha") is an age-old technique from China. They use a smooth stone tool to gently scrape the skin, which helps with circulation and puffiness. It gives your face a little massage that can make it look tighter and brighter.

  • Cleanse & Prep: Wash your face and pat it dry. Then, put a little bit of light oil (like jojoba or rosehip) on your skin. This helps the Gua Sha tool glide smoothly.
  • Jawline Definition: Hold the flat side of the tool against your chin. Gently glide it upwards towards your ear, like you're sculpting your jawline. Do this 5-10 times on each side.
  • Cheekbone Magic: Tilt the tool at an angle and place it on your cheekbone. Stroke outwards towards your temple like you're lifting your cheekbones. Repeat 5-10 times on each side.
  • Brow Lift (Be Careful!): This area is delicate, so be super gentle. Place the tool at the inner corner of your brow and gently scrape towards your temple. Repeat 3-5 times on each side.
  • De-Puffing: Use the rounded edge of the tool to gently press and release on areas that tend to puff up, like under your eyes or around your brows.

Is One Minute Enough?

While Kendall's routine is quick, some recommend a longer session (around 5 minutes) for better results. But even one minute is a good start, especially if you do it daily!

Is Gua Sha Safe for You?

Gua Sha is usually safe, but there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Don't do it if you have rosacea, open wounds, bad acne, or blood clotting problems.
  • If you have any concerns, always ask your dermatologist first.

The Final Glow-Up

Gua Sha might be the secret weapon for a brighter, tighter face. Kendall's routine is a simple way to try it out. Remember to be gentle, listen to your skin, and have fun! You might just be surprised at the results.
