An age old technique, facial rolling has been used for centuries as a non invasive way to sculpt features and stimulate lymphatic draining. LA Beauty brand Skin Gym's Jade Workout Set offers 2 of the brand's key facial tools in one gorgeous git box.
Known as the ‘love stone’, rose quartz has been valued for its soothing properties since the time of the Ancient Egyptians and has historically be used to fight the signs of ageing.
Use the 2 ended roller for relaxing facial massage - simply apply your usual serum and roll over your face in an outwards direction - and the gua shua for more detailed lymphatic drainage (check out the brands's how to guide below). Both work on clean skin, but we recommend adding serum first - try Noto's Deep Serum to really amplify the feel good experience.
Workout: Use your Skin Gym gua sha Sculpty tool over clean skin daily for 3 minutes -5 minutes daily for radiant skin. Repeat each exercise below at least 5x per work-out and do each side of the face separately for maximum benefit.
Pro Tip: Apply serum or oil to give your skin a little lubrication for massage.
Jawline and Chin: Glide your Skin Gym gua sha Sculpty tool upwards from the center of the chin out to the earlobe to contour the jaw
Forehead: Start at the center of the forehead and divide your forehead into three section and glide your tool outwards. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again.
Cheek: Start at the nose and work upwards in a swooping motion along the cheeks & cheekbones, moving outwards toward your ears. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again, move down a bit more to the center of the chin and scrape again. (You will appear blushed aka red- this is great because it means its working).
Under-Eye: Start in the inner corner of the eye, and glide outwards to the temple to send your eye-bags packing (Be SUPER delicate in the area around your eyes)
Brows: Glide upwards along the brow bone - going from the inside out.
Lips: Glide over your lips back & forth 5-7 times for plumped pout
Neck: Section your neck into 4 areas and scrape each section from the bottom up - 5 strokes per section.
Note: Your Skin Gym gua sha should be used with light pressure on the face.
