Gua Sha, an ancient Chinese technique, has gained popularity for its various skincare benefits, including its potential to define and sculpt the jawline.

When used correctly, Gua Sha can promote circulation, reduce tension, and enhance the overall appearance of the jaw area.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use Gua Sha for a chiseled jawline:

Choose the Right Tool:

Begin by selecting a Gua Sha tool. Jade or rose quartz tools are common choices due to their smooth texture. Ensure that the tool has a flat edge for effective sculpting.

Prepare Your Skin:

Cleanse your face to remove any makeup or impurities. Apply a facial oil or serum to create a smooth surface for the Gua Sha tool to glide across.

Identify the Jawline:

Locate your jawline by feeling the bone structure. Start at the chin and move along the jawbone towards the earlobe on both sides.


Hold the tool at a 15 to 45-degree angle against your skin. Apply gentle pressure and use upward and outward strokes along the jawline. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times.

Focus on Problem Areas:

Pay extra attention to areas with tension or puffiness. Use smaller, more targeted movements to address specific concerns, such as the jaw corners or under the chin.

Neck and Lymphatic Drainage:

Extend the Gua Sha strokes down to your neck, following the natural contours. This helps with lymphatic drainage, reducing fluid retention and promoting a more defined jawline.

Repeat Regularly:

Consistency is key. Incorporate Gua Sha into your skincare routine 2-3 times a week for optimal results. Avoid overusing it, as excessive pressure or frequency may cause irritation.

Post-Gua Sha Care:

After the session, apply your favorite moisturizer or skincare products. Gently clean the Gua Sha tool with mild soap and water, allowing it to air dry before the next use.
