This Ayurveda-Approved Skincare Tool Predates Rollers And Gua Sha

It’s true—proponents of the Kansa Wand have existed for more than 5000 years. Even though too many studies haven’t been conducted to corroborate the legitimacy of the dome-shaped tool, it’s being propagated as one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the skin naturally. An interesting fact about the Kansa Wand is that it predates Gua Sha and rollers; and that it didn’t start off as a tool for the skin. Studies indicate that Indians ate their meals on Kansa plates to aid digestion, and drank their water from Kansa cups to filter out (acidic) content before the tool migrated to the skin.

Kansa? More Like Can-Sa.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Kansa Wand?

A Kansa Wand is derived from metals that are alkaline in nature (it’s made from a combination of copper and aluminium), and this quality enables it to balance our skin’s pH—which, sometimes, is a little more acidic than normal. This imbalance manifests as inflammation, wrinkles, ageing, acne, and other skin-related concerns; but a minute-long massage with this wand , restores your skin’s pH, detoxifies your skin by flushing out built-up toxins in the lymph-nodes, and reinstates your glow by improving circulation. It tones your jawline and cheekbones, and firms and tightens the skin slightly. All of this eliminates your lackluster complexion, and induces a healthy-looking glow over time.

What’s The Right Way To Use One?

You must layer your face with a serum or oil to minimise friction between the wand and the skin, and enable the formula to absorb into your skin effectively. Look for formulas that share the same expertise as Kansa (reducing inflammation and increasing brightness, for instance)—this is to ensure that the two work synergistically, and bolster each other’s effects. Move the wand in circular motions around the eye-sockets, draw eights across the forehead, and use upward strokes across the jaw. Do this every day before sleeping for about 10 minutes.

What Else You Must Know

Remember that using a Kansa Wand that’s pure is key to reaping the tool’s benefits. The wand doesn’t contain any metals apart from copper and aluminium, and has no lead in it. Any wand that claims to have zinc or other metals infused in it isn’t genuine. If you notice a greyness on the surface of your skin after using the tool, it’s just a sign that the wand has worked, and a reaction between the metal and the acids is occurring as your skin heals and rebalances itself. Just wipe it off with a cloth once you’re done. Avoid using this tool if you’re allergic to metals at all.
