Why We Love:
I’m on the Gua Sha bandwagon and I ain’t getting offfff. There’s a reason this skincare ritual has been used for centuries!!! B’cos it works. This bad boy will help to absorb your skincare post AM + PM routine AND the best bit - when used consistently, it’ll help *contour and sculpt* the face. Don’t believe me?! Check out this trend out on Tik Tok for some before and after videos. I was #MindBlown.
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese therapy originating from Traditional Chinese Medicine in which lubricated skin is scraped or rubbed with the edge of a smooth, hard tool to improve skin and health conditions. The tradition and the tools of Gua Sha have been passed down through families for centuries, and only recently have cultures outside of Asia become familiar with its therapeutic benefits.
Living Libations is honoured to offer a cool Quartz Gua Sha stone that offers the right curves to fit all face and body shapes. You can vivify your visage, beautify your body, and tend to tightness by scraping the Gua Sha stone over freshly washed skin lubricated with a generous squeeze of a Libations serum for great glide.
Each stone is parcelled in a muslin bag for carrying and storing the Gua Sha tool.
How To Use:
Our favourite way to Gua Sha is to first wash the face and neck or spritz it with Rose Tonic or Frankincense Tonic, and smooth on a generous squeeze of a lubricating serum (Rose Glow, Soothsayer, Open Sky, or any Best Skin Ever), for great glide. Then, simply select the perfect curve in the implement to hug the area you are rubbing. Be sure to move the tool upward and outward to effectively sculpt and smooth the skin.
Begin with the base of the neck and glide upward in long, slow swipes until the whole neck is scraped. Then move to the jaw, the cheeks, the eye area, the forehead, the nose, and the lips, always gliding up and outward. With 60 Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian points on the face, a Gua Sha facial is thought of as meridian massage.
While Gua Sha implements can be comprised of a variety of materials, we prefer the smooth, cool beauty of crystal quartz. Quartz stones are prismatic crystals of silicon and oxygen compressed by geologic forces into hardened, sparkling light.
