Facial massage tools are quickly changing the way we care for our skin at home. Incorporating one of these quirky looking gadgets into your daily skincare routine boasts a wide range of skin and health benefits – helping you fast track your way to healthy glowing skin.
So what exactly are the benefits of these tools and how do we use them in our skincare routines? Facial massage is known to help sculpt, lift & tone the muscles resulting in firmer skin and enhanced jawline & cheekbones, while the ritual of massage helps to relieve muscle tension and reduce stress (Something we all need a little bit of right now).
By kick-starting the lymphatic system, a Gua Sha stone or roller also helps to drain excess fluid, reduce puffiness and shift unwanted toxins out of the skin for a brighter, smoother complexion. This ritual also aids in the absorption of your serums, meaning you will be getting the most out of those skin loving ingredients.
Why Black Obsidian & Rose Quartz?
Even the stone or crystal the tools are made from contain benefits, like our carefully selected Rose Quartz & Black Obsidian massage tools. Black Obsidian is known to draw out negative energies and reduce stress. It also retains warmth making it excellent for lymphatic drainage and increasing circulation. Rose Quartz is known for its healing soothing properties, while promoting gentleness & self love.
Our expert skin therapists share their top tips on how to use your Gua Sha stones & rollers at home:
- Start with cleansed skin & a spritz of a hydrating toner
- Apply your favourite serum or oil to the face & neck
- Using your Gua Sha stone or roller, gently glide in outwards strokes, starting at the neck and working upwards & outwards
- Pay extra attention around the eyes, gently draining outwards to reduce puffiness, increase circulation (bringing nutrients to the area) and brightening those undereyes.
