Mom uses baby’s foot as gua sha facial massager in hilarious TikTok

This busy mom found the perfect accessory for her skincare regimen: Her baby’s foot. 

Like a lot of mothers, TikTok mom @ilizas doesn’t always have time to keep up with her beauty routine. After all, buying all of those tools and accessories can be expensive. But even if you could afford them, who has the time to use them when they’ve got little ones running around?

So when @ilizas was in need of a little gua sha, a face massaging practice in Traditional Chinese Medicine, she had to get resourceful.

The mom used her baby’s foot to massage her face. She used the tiny toes to gently rub up and down her face and neck to depuff and smooth out those fine lines. Then finally, as any parent would, she ate her baby’s foot. 

The video racked up 2.9 million views on TikTok

“As a licensed massage therapist I can verify that this is the correct application of gua sha,” a user added
