If you're looking for a natural and effective approach to anti-aging, you're in for a treat. Instead of turning to unhealthy procedures, try these holistic beauty tools.
Holistic beauty tools help to stimulate the dermis, the middle layer of skin, where collagen and elastin are found. With a little effort each day, you can encourage healthier and more youthful skin.
3 Holistic Beauty Tools to Try
Assists in lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness, increase circulation, minimize fine lines and uneven skin tone, and encourages a healthy glow. The cooling sensation helps brighten the skin and energize the face. It is a lovely self care practice that helps to relax the face for a healthier and more vibrant appearance.
Pro Tip: Place the gemstone roller in the refrigerator to wake up the skin in the morning. Apply your skincare and roll on the skin to instantly reduce reduce puffiness.
An ancient Chinese natural therapy that is over 2,000 years old. Regular Gua Sha use lifts and sculpts the face for a tighter, firmer, and lifted appearance, reduces fine lines, and stimulates the dermis to support collagen production. It does a amazing job at improving circulation to help clear out waste products like black heads and pimples.
It takes a bit longer than the gemstone roller. Generally you will wan to spend between 10-20 minutes for an effective treatment. The goal is to slowly move the skin on the face in an upwards motion for a natural lift. Immediate results can be seen. Your whole face should look brighter, lifted, and relaxed. It is really easy to notice the results after doing it on one side of the face and comparing it to the other side. The eyes look more open and awake, the skin looks brighter, lifted, and more youthful.
There are many different types of Gua Sha's on the market to choose from and selecting one will depend on your skin goals. I suggest starting out with the standard Gua Sha. Over time you can try the advanced Gua Sha which is for more mature skin types.
The more you dedicate yourself to this practice the better results you will see. Aim for a minimum of 3x's per week or use it daily for the best results. Once you get the hang of it it becomes really easy and something you will likely look forward to. The Gua Sha is also a beautiful way to decrease stress and increase feelings of well-being.

Helps to target acupressure points on the face + neck to release tension. Great for precision work such as reducing under eye puffiness and sculpting the cheekbones and jawline.
So, which one should you try first? I suggest starting with the gemstone roller since it is easier to use and best for busy mornings. Once you feel comfortable using it on a regular basis you might consider advancing to a Gua Sha.
My favorite of all three is the Gua Sha because it does a better job at supporting graceful aging.
I really hope you incorporate one of these holistic beauty tools into your daily routine to support your health and beauty, naturally. Get ready to GLOW!
