Gua Sha Massage: An Ancient Beauty Ritual for Radiant Skin
Originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Gua Sha massage is a centuries-old technique that involves gently scraping the skin with a smooth-edged tool. This practice not only relaxes and rejuvenates the skin but also enhances blood circulation and promotes the natural detoxification process by stimulating the lymphatic system.
When we eat salt, drink alcohol or caffeine or even when we sleep, our bodies hold onto water which causes bloating and puffiness. Stimulating the lymphatic system helps to encourage better circulation for a de-puffed face and neck.
Here's a step-by-step guide to incorporating Gua Sha massage into your skincare routine:
Before you start: Apply a facial oil or serum to provide lubrication for the Gua Sha stone. This ensures the stone will glide easily over the skin without causes friction or excessive pulling which can weaken the skin.
Neck and Jaw: Begin at the base of your neck, gently scraping upwards towards your jawline, using long, sweeping motions. Repeat this movement three to five times, gradually moving towards your chin.
Cheeks: Next, move to your cheeks and glide the Gua Sha tool from the center of your face towards the hairline, following the natural contours of your cheekbones. Repeat this motion several times on each side.
Forehead: With the tool held horizontally, start at the center of your forehead and move towards the temples using gentle upward strokes. Repeat this movement three to five times.
Using the Gua Sha first thing in the morning can help to get your blood flowing and promote a more toned complexion with less puffiness and blotchiness. The Gua Sha can also be used at night as part of your evening skincare routine. Using the Gua Sha in the evening can help to reduce tension in the forehead, along the jaw and in the temples.
Enjoy this ancient ritual as part of your self-care routine and witness the transformative effects it has on your skin!
Beauty Pillow - Wake Up to a Fresh, Youthful Glow
For a tool that takes you from night to day, there’s the Beauty Pillow!
Sleep is the ultimate form of self-care. Did you know your pillow could contribute to your beauty routine? The Beauty Pillow is specifically designed to support your head, neck, and face during sleep, preventing sleep lines, puffiness, and wrinkles.
Using a Beauty Pillow helps with:
Wrinkle Prevention: The Beauty Pillow's patented design features 6 unique sleep zones that reduce facial contact and compression and elevate the head and neck for better lymphatic drainage. The pillow material is premium quality VISCO memory foam which holds its shape and gently cushions your head and neck. The supportive design allows for proper alignment of your head and neck, reducing the likelihood of sleep lines and creases through reduced facial compression each night.
Skin Hydration: By minimizing contact between your face and the pillow, the Beauty Pillow helps maintain the skin's natural moisture and prevents the absorption of oils from the pillowcase. The Beauty Pillow comes in a vacuum sealed premium cylindrical box with your choice of Pillowcase.
The Skin+ Pillowcase is a patented Tencel fabric infused with antioxidant probiotics. As you move in your sleep, the antioxidants gently release and attach to your skin through your sleepwear and bedding. Antioxidants are essential tools that repair and replenish tired skin cells. Skin is plumper, rejuvenated and shows the signs of aging less with the Skin+ antioxidant skincare support pillowcase.
The Silk Pillowcase for Beauty Pillow comes in 6 colour choices, for ultra glam bedtime support. When purchasing the Beauty Pillow, the Silk Pillowcase options are Champagne or Black Diamond. The other 4 Pillowcase colours: Lilac, Blue, Blush Pink and Tapue are all available for purchase separately.
Champagne and Black Diamond Silk Pillowcases support your skin and hair care routines by reducing nightly friction, wicking away moisture and preventing the absorption of allergens that disturb your beauty sleep. Beauty Pillow’s Silk Collection uses only Premium Turkish 22 Momme Mulberry Silk.
These silk fibers are coated in a protein called sericin. This coating ensures the silk fibers are strong yet gentle enough for everyday contact with your skin and hair. Skin is less prone to irritation and breakouts, while hair and scalp friction is reduced for less breakage and irritation.
Anti-Aging Support: The pillow's gentle elevation improves blood circulation, reduces fluid retention, and promotes a youthful, refreshed appearance. The neck and head support works to elevate the head, boosting circulation and preventing the pooling of fluid in the face and neck that can lead to puffiness and blotchiness in your complexion.
Investing in a beauty pillow is a simple yet effective step towards waking up with a radiant, well-rested complexion. Supporting your beauty sleep routine with an active skincare routine using Gua Sha facial massage can help to develop your self care practice and boost your skin!
Skin Care isn't just a trend; it's a beautiful journey of self-love and care. With Gua Sha massage, and sleeping with the Beauty Pillow, you can discover the joy of healthy, glowing skin. Embrace these practices as a part of your daily regimen and witness the transformative effects they have on your skin and overall well-being.
