The Hayo’u Clear Quartz gua sha family is finally here and your skincare routine will now be crystal clear. All the tools you need to calm, soothe and de-stress tired skin at your fingertips. But what makes clear quartz gua sha so special?
According to Chinese medicine, clear quartz or the ‘Master Healer’ of gua sha, removes heat from the body created by the stresses of the day, calms the mind and improves Qi (energy) flow. This makes clear quartz the perfect crystal to use in the evening or before bedtime when skin is feeling tired and stressed.

You can now have the full set of clear quartz gua sha tools, each with its own unique purpose. Start with one and build up your collection or drive straight in for the ultimate de-stressing and calming skin treatment.
This gentle and yet powerful clear quartz gua sha tool is nothing short of a miracle. So how does it work?
Gua sha really is a game changer when it comes to the health and appearance of your skin. There is a reason that it has become such a huge trend over the last couple of years, and that’s because it works, both immediately and long-term. Gua sha has the most incredible effect on the microcirculation, the system just underneath the skin that transports oxygen and nutrients to the blood and remove toxins. Studies have shown that gua sha increases microcirculation by 400%, flooding the skin with fresh nutrients. Over time, this increases levels of both collagen and elastin. Done regularly, gua sha smooths, lifts, plumps and contours the skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Gua sha is also brilliant for reducing puffiness and congestion, by gently encouraging the movements of lymphatic fluid, which can’t flow by itself. It only moves when we move, or when we move it. Gua sha also releases tension in the facial muscles and soothes sore eyes and skin, making the complexion looking brighter and glowing. In addition, gua sha is hugely pleasurable and is incredibly relaxing and soothing.
You would be surprised how much tension we store in and among the 43 muscles of the face. Gua sha also allows you to work deeper into the muscles and fascia than by using fingers alone, so you can consciously release where it feels knotted or tight. To top it all, facial gua sha activates the acupressure points along the 12 major meridian lines in your face.
If you’re familiar with the Jade or Rose Quartz Precision, you’ll know why it’s known as the ‘magic wand’ of gua sha. The brand new Clear Quartz Precision targets the delicate skin around the eyes and lips with pinpoint accuracy. You can use this soothing and calming gua sha tool in the evenings to de-stress tired skin, support circulation and lymphatic drainage, lift, sculpt and contour, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles including smokers’ lines, frown 11s and laughter lines. The multi-purpose gua sha tool can also be used to activate acupressure points on the face to calm the mind and improve the flow of Qi (the energy that flows through the meridians).
The final piece in the clear quartz set is the brand new Clear Quartz Compress. This clever face massage tool is the perfect way to end your clear quartz gua sha treatment. Use every day after gua sha banish any remaining puffiness, reduce the appearance of pores and dark circles under the eyes, relax tight muscles and rebalance the skin. The crystal compress face massage tool also encourages the absorption of essential oils and serums for a healthy glowing complexion.
We recommend using the Clear Quartz Compress as a hot or cold compress for optimum benefits:
Hot: Sit the crystal compress tool in hot water for 1 to 3 minutes and use while warm to improve circulation, relax and soothe the skin.
Cold: Submerge in cold water for 3 to 5 minutes to reduce skin redness, puffiness and reduce open pores.
