What are they and do they actually work?
Ok, you’ve definitely seen them, they are all over the internet as the beauty ritual must have! Frankly, we can’t get enough of them. However, the concept of these beauty tools has been around for centuries.
A facial roller is a beauty tool made from gemstones and used for facial massages. They date back to seventh-century China much like Gua Sha, which is a flat stone tool. With the ever-growing trend in these beauty tools, you can now get them in nearly every gemstone for their different properties. They are used as part of a morning and evening facial ritual. If you are someone that suffers from puffy eyes and face in the morning, this is the answer to your de-puffing as it stimulates lymphatic drainage!
Gua Sha....A little on the history.
“The word “gua” means to scrape or rub and “sha” refers to the reddish rash that appears on the skin after treatments”. (taoofwellness)
Traditionally, most people used Gua sha to prevent conditions such as flu, cold, headache and both chronic and acute pain. Now, we use it to increase circulation and blood flow to the face and for depuffing, just to name a few.
When using these beauty tools, it's recommended you massage your face in an upward and outward motion, lifting the skin and making sure you are taking time to do this. I find facials to be super therapeutic and this is where I spend a bit of time to just reconnect with myself and to be intentional.
Our Rana facial serum is perfect to pair with a facial tool as the tool will just glide onto the skin. Rana’s regenerative properties help to reduce dark marks and scars from hyperpigmentation and are packed with 14 precious oils.
