The Black Obsidian Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool
Lift, firm & contour the skin with black obsidian - the warming stone of clarity. Enjoy a breath of calmness in your busy life, a daily ritual, an act of self care.
WHAT IT IS
Gua sha has been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Perfected throughout the centuries, this black obsidian gua sha tool was built to have a firming, lifting effect on the skin.
Unlike the other stones, Black Obsidian naturally retains warmth + is great to use on congested, blemish prone skin. The warmth of the obsidian encourages stimulation of the lymphatic system + circulation.
To warm this Black Obsidian tool, we recommend placing it in a glass of warm water.
WHAT IT DOES
- promotes lymphatic drainage
- reduces puffiness + fluid buildup
- relieves facial + jaw tension
- aids in circulation to give skin a glow
- firms and lifts the face over time
HOW TO USE
- Start with a clean face + prep skin with a facial oil or serum.
- Keep the tool flat against the face + begin with the forehead. Scrape in an upwards motion from the eyebrows to the hairline.
- Move to the cheeks + scrape in an outwards motion starting from the crease of the nose until the ear.
- Move to the jawline + use the end of the gua sha tool with the two curves. Start from the chin + scrape until the ear. Gently massage the gua sha tool into the ear to release tension.
- For the under-eye area, very gently scrape the gua sha tool from the inner corner of the eye outwards to the temple. Because the area is so sensitive, it is important to only apply light pressure.
