We just love to be right. Already over three years ago we predicted that facials with healing stones could be the next big beauty trend. – Today Jade, Rosenquartz, and Co. are an integral part of our care routine.
We are not alone in our enthusiasm for the stones that were once ridiculed as Eso gadgets. Stars like Miranda Kerr or Gwyneth Paltrow also swear by the ingenious and effective beauty tool.
Beauty trend: Gua Sha Facials help against swollen eyes and provide a radiant glow
Gua Sha comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been used there as a folk medicine tool for centuries.
The massage technique is intended to literally scrape away illnesses.
While TCA uses Gua Sha all over the body, it has established itself as a facial treatment in the modern beauty industry. The best thing: we can easily carry out the massage ourselves at home.
Shop the beauty trend Gua Sha against dark circles and for more glow:
With the different sized curves and curves of the Gua Sha, you simply scrape over your face. The pressure and movement stimulate the skin’s blood circulation, making it look fresher, more relaxed and also rosier.
In addition, the body’s own lymphatic system is stimulated. Pollutants are removed more easily, which reduces swelling. Bye, bye puffy eyes! The face is given a little detox treatment.
On top, the stone massage stimulates the skin’s own formation of elastin and colleagues. The skin appears plumper and more elastic and even small wrinkles appear visibly smoother.
And last but not least, there would be the healing effect of the stones used. These should transmit their positive properties and vibrations to the body when they come into contact with the skin. Rose quartz has a calming effect and stands for self-love, jade is considered a healing stone of harmony, and aventurine counteracts stress and ensures balance.
