Say goodbye to modern day potions and pills. The secret to youthful skin dates back centuries and we’re only jumping on the bandwagon, now.
In an age where skincare technology is at its most advanced, the answer to plump, dewy skin lies in the secrets of ancient Chinese skincare. What are the pre-century skincare tools that are making a comeback? Rose-quartz rollers and Gua Sha boards! Oh, and if you’ve been on Instagram lately, you won’t need much of an introduction.
These crystal skincare tools give off an electromagnetic field which vibrates at a certain frequency. The frequency of these vibrations can be transmitted and influence our own electromagnetic field/ energy. The frequency of each crystal can affect our physical and emotional bodies and how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. In metaphysics, any physical disease is believed to be caused by an energy blockage within the body.
Ecologic Skin (a vegan skincare and product brand) believes that the body (and skin) needs to be treated holistically, thus crystal beauty tools are the perfect treatment for soul and skin.
The ancient Egyptians and Romans believed in the healing energy of Rose Quartz and used these stones to preserve their beauty. Queen Cleopatra is said to have collected tumbled Rose Quartz from the Nile to use for facial massage.
The anti-aging benefits of the facial roller
With the gentle application of the rolling action to the facial, neck and décolletage area, you will be boosting the blood circulation in those areas. The face, neck and décolletage areas are usually the first body areas to show the signs of aging. The increased blood circulation in these areas will nourish the skin. The Rose Quartz Massage Roller improves lymphatic drainage, eliminates toxins and reduces puffiness of the face. All these benefits work together to ensure the reduction of early signs of aging, visible wrinkles and reduce the size of pores. It is equally effective with the specially formulated serum or as part of your regular beauty regime.
The benefits of a Gua Sha board
Besides the benefits to the body, which include relieving congestion, reducing pain, and getting rid of toxins, the technique is also often used as a “natural face-lift.” Since ancient times Asian women have used it to effectively fight the signs of ageing.
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese treatment that has been touted for its incredible beauty and healing effects, namely in preventing and treating the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging, dark circles, and for promoting overall skin rejuvenation from the inside out. It’s a safe and natural alternative.
Many women are discovering that there are real dangers involved with the more common clinical anti-ageing treatments. With the popular Botox injection, for example, you’re actually injecting a highly dangerous toxin into your body
That’s why many women turn to natural, holistic beauty therapies instead. Treatments like gua sha help to unlock the natural beauty from within, stimulating circulation, clearing away impurities and toning the neck and face. It uses no chemicals or invasive procedures, and therefore it is far safer than the clinical methods.
The effectiveness of gua sha comes from the way it stimulates the deeper layers of skin, as well as the energetic components in the body.
With aging our skin produces less collagen. After the age of 20, women produce about 1% less collagen in the skin each year. As a result, the skin becomes thinner and more fragile with aging.
As you gently scrape the skin during a gua sha session, the layers under the outer skin are stimulated, and micro-circulation is improved. Toxins are released and cleared away, and the overall effect is a clearer complexion, better skin tone and a radiant glow.
Results will be encouraging from the very first treatment. Gua sha helps in the following ways:
It reduces acne, rosacea and blemishes on the skin,
With repeated treatments it can significantly reduce wrinkles,
Gua sha Firms up sagging of the face and neck
It combats the formation of bags and dark circles under the eyes,
Promotes a more radiant complexion
Diminishes age spots and skin discoloration
Gua sha facilitates the drainage of lymphatic fluid from face and neck.
