Benefits of Roller:
The Roller was introduced in the Chinese skincare routine to have a cooling, soothing effect on the skin.
- Easier to use (so more likely to be used regularly and obtain results).
- Promotes blood circulation.
- Reduces puffiness.
- Soothes the skin.
- Improves product absorption.
Benefits of Gua Sha:
Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called qi, in the body that may be responsible for inflammation.
- Many shapes are available to suit each part of your face and body.
- Sculpts and contours your skin.
- Increases fluid circulation and breaks down tissue knots thanks to the heat created by the friction.
- Relieves muscle tension more deeply.
- Balances your energy flow (qi or ch'i) throughout your body.
Who wins? Both depending on what you need.
- Take the Roller if you want something easier to use for de-puffing and better product absorption.
- Use your Gua Sha for sculpting, releasing muscle tensions, and a healthy qi.
- (Best Option) Use the Roller in the morning to soothe and de-puff your skin and the Gua Sha in the evening to sculpt and increase fluid drainage.
