How to use our Gua Sha Tool for your Lips
The Gua Sha technique has become extremely popular in recent years. Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese technique which involves scraping your skin with a massage tool (commonly made from Jade or Rose Quartz) to improve your circulation.
For a fuller lip and pout, we created the Rose Quartz Spatula and Sculpting Tool, a unique dual-purpose tool to apply your Apoth products and sculpt lips.

What are the benefits of Gua Sha for the lips?
- Relieves muscle tension
- Improves circulation
- Reduce fine lines
How to use our Rose Quartz Spatula and Sculpting Tool:
Step 1: Prepare your skin
Apply a facial, oil or toner to the face, and press it into the skin around your mouth, so the tool has a smooth surface to glide over.
Step 2: Massage
Massage in gentle circular motions across the outer perimeter of your lips: Our lips are a sensitive part of our face, be sure to massage them gently to increase blood flow and induce a plumping effect.
If you have new or active fillers, or botox surrounding your lips or mouth, it is best to wait. If you’re prone to cold sores, it’s recommended to avoid Gua sha altogether.
