You might already be familiar with crystal facial massagers…. but there's a new skincare tool in town that will amp up your facial routine: The Gua Sha Face Tool. Ok, so it’s not that new - this face scraping technique is based on an ancient Chinese healing ritual, but we’re bringing it back for you right here! The goal of Gua Sha massage is to contour face muscles, reduce wrinkles and puffiness (goodbye tired eyes, hangover puffiness and puffy jawlines)
Why do I need to massage my face? Just like you working out your body, you need to give your face a workout too, but don’t worry - it’s totally relaxing ;)
Benefits of Gua Sha massage:
- Lifts and contours facial muscles
- Smoothes skin
- Reduces wrinkles
- Stimulates lymphatic drainage, depuffs
- Releases tightness (like tight jaw)
- Boosts circulation (which promotes collagen production)
- Relaxes through massage ritual
- Helps massage in facial serums or essential oils
Place them in the refrigerator a few minutes before use for that extra cooling sensation. This is excellent for depuffing and fighting inflammation.
How to clean
Rinse them off and / or wipe them with a moist towel or cloth and dry thoroughly.
How to use
It’s very simple! Just apply some of your favorite serum onto your face (hello HI ROLLER! Serum) then use the smooth edges of the tool to “scrape” or scoop the skin upwards, lifting it from the center of your face up and out towards your hairline. It doesn't feel harsh at all. Apply only a little bit of pressure to move the muscles and tissues underneath. Feel free to use on your neck and décolletage.
Why Rose Quartz?
It’s not just a pretty color. Did you know Rose Quartz is said to be the ultimate “love” stone particularly aiding in self love? It is considered a powerful healing stone as it restores harmony, purifies and opens the heart to encourage self acceptance, inner healing and feelings of peace. Your daily ritual with help to remove negative energy and replace it with loving vibes.
