Green Aventurine Guasha Crystal Skin Tool
How To Use
Gua Sha is a healing massage technique from Traditional Chinese Medicine that can be used to lift, tone and tighten skin, increase the efficacy of your skincare, and for your skin to look refreshed and glowy.
The technique stems from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and involves the use of a skincare tool (like this one!) with a flat edge that can be used to press-stroke or scrape lubricated skin in one direction. This, according to the Chinese, moves qi (气) or energy around the body. In allopathic medical terms, this translates into improving circulation which releases stagnant blood and toxins. This movement allows for more blood and nutrient flow to stagnant areas, allowing for healing and rejuvenating tired skin.
This guasha is made using carefully sourced green aventurine. In crystal healing, green aventurine represents luck, abundance and happiness. It's also connected to issues of the heart and emotion, and is known as a stone of personal growth, to accept opportunities about learning about oneself and one's place in the universe.
*Please note that as these tools are crafted from natural stone, there will be minor imperfections varying across individual units. These imperfections do not compromise the integrity of the tools or their use.
- Plumper, smoother skin
- Reduces appearance of wrinkles
- Glows you up
Practice guasha after you have cleansed and completed most of your routine, right after you apply a moisturizer or sleeping cream. Make sure that you apply enough cream so that your skin has enough "slip". You don't want your skin to catch and tug as that will damage it.
Being made of a crystal, these tools are delicate and will break upon being dropped. Please be careful while handling.
To care for your crystal, gently wash it in warm soapy water after use each time and dry before putting it away.
