Face sculpting involves a two-fold method comprising rolling and draining which can be done either by using your fingers, a handheld massager or a gua sha. This helps refresh your skin and provide natural glow.
Used for sculpting, gua sha is part a traditional Chinese healing method. It is a smooth-edged small tool that is used to stroke the skin while pressing on it to expose petechiae (round, red dots that show under the skin). It improves blood flow and helps to heal and lift the skin, according to webmd.com.
