Guasha | The Ultimate Detox For Glowing Skin

I want to share with you what I think is the BEST detox for skin. It’s a technique that really opens up the pores of the skin allowing it to breathe as well as truly cleaning it.

It’s called Guasha (pronounced gwa-sha) and is an age-old technique used by Ancient Asian, Greek and Egyptian civilisations.

I have been using this technique for over 17 years now, and have shared it with thousands of people around the world who also use it. It cleanses the skin to such a level that it will help you to tan without burning, and will keep your skin looking fresh and healthy.

Your skin should eliminate up to 2kg of material each day, but for most of us, this simply is not the case.

There are many factors at play, but the main issue is that our skin gets clogged over time. Unfortunately regular soap and body wash doesn’t have the ability to really deep-clean the skin, it just works on the surface.

Making Your Own Natural Super Skin Detox

One of the best things about Guasha is that you can make it at home as it only consists of two ingredients – bicarbonate soda and vodka!

Make sure your bicarbonate soda is aluminum-free, and I recommend you get a cheap brand of triple distilled vodka.

Then all you do is get a resealable glass jar with a big enough opening to reach your hand in.

Fill the jar with 80% bicarbonate soda, then fill and saturate with vodka until you reach a level about 1 cm above the bicarb soda. This will make a nice putty-like consistency that can be used as a body scrub. Always make sure to seal the jar after use, as it will evaporate quickly and turn really hard.

Then next time you’re in the shower, simply rinse your whole body, turn off the water and add a tablespoon or so of the Guasha mixture onto a loofah or body glove for each of your limbs.

Firmly scrub over your entire body. I even scrub my face, just be gentle on the face at first.

Then get back under the water and completely rinse your skin. Squeaky clean!

How This Ultimate Skin Detox Works

As bicarbonate soda is highly alkaline, it kills acidic bacteria that build up in the skin. The skin has seven layers of dermis and epidermis and a lot of stuff can accumulate in the skin. Fungus, yeasts, petrochemicals, parasites and moulds can come out as rashes and infections.

A lot of times, petrochemicals that happen to be in the air around us get into the skin and really block it up, resulting in pimples and irritations. When you use guasha, it opens the pores of the skin as well as alkalising everything.

The Guasha cleans absolutely everything out and allows more oxygen to enter creating beautiful, fresh skin.

I recommend doing this every day for the first 1-2 weeks then after that about 2-3 times per week indefinitely. Of course, use this in conjunction with eating well, regular cleansing, drinking lots of water and getting out in the sun. It’s a great addition to your daily self-care routine!

Time to Glow - Let the Sun Shine In

Personally, I like to get out into the sun directly after my Guasha cleanse. I usually lay out for 15-20 minutes on my back and then my front, so 30-45 minutes in total.

Just keep in mind that everyone’s skin type is different depending on how much sun you have been exposed to over time. The UV Index is also different depending on your geographical location.

Use some common sense and be sure to test and measure, slowly adding more time to your sun charging time.

It’s a great way to get some solar energy into my body. Nutrition for me is all about getting more light into this body temple, whether it be through fresh fruits and vegetables or directly from the sun.

I’ve got another great article about the benefits of sunshine that you can read here. I recommend using coconut oil to nourish the skin as it has a natural SPF of 5-7. If you live in a place where the sun is strong, layout earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon when the sun is softer.

Another great addition to your routine is once a week, massage your body with Extra Virgin Olive Oil after a guasha wash.

That’s it!

Get Clean. Get in the Sun. Relax. You will GLOW!
