WHAT IS IT?
Black Obsidian is shiny black rock formed from molten lava. The stone also naturally retains heat, which works wonders on blemish prone and congested skin.
The Gua Sha (known as scraping) has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years and is known for its lifting and firming effects on the skin. Using the Gua Sha in your “at home” skincare routine will give you your very own Grass Roots® CBD Facial when incorporating it with our Super Glow Miracle Oil.
WHY WE LOVE IT
Not only does the Black Obsidian Gua Sha draw out negative energy from the body, it manually drains sluggish lymph – which can cause inflammation and puffy pockets. It kickstarts your face into a natural cleanse mode for the following key benefits:
- Reduces inflammation
- Improves energy flow
- Supports circulation
- Drains sluggish lymph
- Improves skin laxity
- Firms and lift the skin
- Can be used on the face, jaw, neck and body
- Alleviates headaches and neck pain.
WHEN TO USE IT
1-3 days a week is perfect usage for this pocket rocket.
HOW TO CLEAN IT
Simply clean your Gua Sha with warm soapy water, allow to dry and pop it back in its pouch.
Tip: Keep your Gua Sha in the freezer. Not only does this keep your tool sterile, but super cool to aid reduction in swelling. As your Gua Sha begins to naturally warm up, it will start targeting blemishes and congestion!
Try to drink plenty of water after each session to flush your lymphatic system.
HOW TO USE IT
Take 3-4 drops of your Super Glow Miracle Oil and rub into the palm of your hands. Distribute evenly over your entire face and neck. Once you start, you may need a further 1-2 drops more. Add as much as you feel your skin needs for the Gua Sha to glide comfortably.
Start the lymphatic drainage by working from the neck, and glide the Gua Sha upwards towards the jaw. Then progress to the jaw line sweeping outwards towards the ears and then the same way over the chin and mouth.
You can use the curved inlet of the Gua Sha to snuggle your chin and smooth out your jawline.
Continue to the cheeks and eyes, again, moving outwards towards your ears. Once on the forehead, glide upwards and over the brow.
When moving the tool over the skin, use the curved side, holding it at a 90 degree angle, using smooth strokes in one direction (from the inside of your face outwards) and never back and forth.
To complete the drainage, gently massage your lymph node areas with the Gua Sha and use soft sweeping movements down the sides of your temples, to the ears, to under the ear and then down towards to neck. This assists any build up to flow through and flush through your system.
