The Gua Sha stone helps in releasing muscle tension around your face, kick-starting a good flow for healthy and glowing skin. The stone helps eliminate any kind of detoxification. The beauty tool helps improve elasticity of the skin from all the yawning, smiling and other muscle movements we do with our face. It also helps with combating appearances of puffiness and fine lines. But, most importantly, it’ll help ease the absorption of your serums, facial oils or any other products into the skin even better. Keep in the fridge and place it under your eyes with an eye serum or cream for a instant eye mask. Use this every morning, beginning at the center of your face and moving outwards with gentle but firm pressure!
