Crystal Gua Sha
An effective facial tool that will smooth the look of wrinkles and encourage detoxification.
Gua sha is an ancient Chinese technique that has been used for centuries to bring new life to dull - devitalized and aging skin with gentle stimulating massage. The massage encourages lymphatic drainage & this detox action allows better absorption of skincare products & tightens the skin.
Gua sha helps to improve the function of the skin which helps with many skin conditions; Deep lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, rosacea, acne, acne scars, pigmentation, dark circles, puffiness. It retrains the muscles of the face, relaxing them, strengthening, lifting and toning.
Gua sha is intended to address stagnant energy, called chi, in the body that practitioners believe may be responsible for inflammation. Inflammation is the underlying cause of several conditions associated with chronic pain. Rubbing the skin’s surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
In gua sha, oil & the crystal stone is used on your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow.
Paired best with the Skin Perfecting Oil Serum (with Vit. C & COQ10)
