The Beauty Restorer Ritual

Gua Sha is undoubtedly the hidden gem of Chinese Medicine. This simple self-treatment uses a round, smooth edged massage tool (in our case, the Beauty Restorer). You simply press-stroke your face in the areas that store tension (caused by stress) - typically along the temples, the jaw line and the brow. The technique releases congestion and toxicity and results in an altogether brighter, healthier, more youthful complexion.

    This process increases the microcirculation of the skin, increasing blood flow to your face and assisting lymphatic drainage, therefore helping to delay the ageing process. The results are instant and cumulative.
    You'll notice a healthier glow and plumper skin as quickly as the next morning - but the results are cumulative also, meaning that with daily treatment you'll notice a significantly clearer, brighter complexion over time.

    Finally, use the tips of the tool to firmly press and rotate slowly on the acupressure points shown in the diagram. These points have been chosen specifically for their efficacy in stress relief.
    Please note, you should wait until any redness has subsided before re-treating that area.
    Daily treatment is the ideal, but 2-3 times a week is still beneficial.
