Black Obsidian Gua Sha Facial Stone
Gua Sha Facial Tools are a great addition to your skincare routine. They work to stimulate circulation, de-puff, smooth fine lines, relax facial muscles and gently detoxify your lymphatic system.
Gua sha is an ancient Chinese practice for energy flow and blood circulation. The technique can be used on the whole body and is traditionally quite vigorous.
I recommend using a facial oil beforehand to smooth the skin. Holding the tool at a 45 degree angle, scrape against the skin in an upwards and outwards motion. Start from the centre of the face and work around. For maximum results, try doing this every day for about one to three minutes. Unlike a crystal roller, your Gua sha tool shouldn't be cold.
- Black Obsidian - Said to contain the most potent energies, with elements of fire, water and earth involved in its formation, black obsidian is used to draw out negative energy in the body. In Feng Shui, it is thought to clear out obstacles and negative thoughts. Consistent use is said to bring imbalances to the surface for release, rejuvenating the skin on all levels and benefiting muscle tissues over time.
