Do You Gua Sha?

Contributor: Holistic Practitioner & Esthetician Ashely Jantzen 

How did our ancestors maintain their beauty without all of our science-based protects and equipment? They used what they found in the nature - the exact same way Saffron & Sage formulated our skincare products.

Now, let’s take a look at one of the quintessential tools we can use in our modern beauty routine based on this ancient wisdom. 

The Jade Gua Sha 

Gua Sha San Diego

Known for its youthful qualities, the jade gua sha is able to detoxify your skin while also brightening your complexion. 

The color is especially important as it promotes deeper connectivity to the heart chakra and is well known as the stone of eternal youth which makes it a go-to gemstone for facial treatments.

Using the Jade gua sha is associated with its ability to reduce tension in the facial muscles, which makes it an excellent beauty tool for smoothing out wrinkles. This small and easily portable tool can be used at home, or on the go, bringing the Saffron & Sage spa experience home with you and bonus it fits easily into your travel beauty bag!

San Diego Jade Gua Sha

Throughout the day we talk, chew, and make different facial expressions. Using the gua sha allows the face to release the tension it accumulates throughout the day and holds on to, while supporting our serums and moisturizer to penetrate deeper into the skin. Using the jade gua sha in your daily routine is like having your very own fountain of youth at your fingertips! 

After applying the Saffron & Sage Nourish serum and Restore moisturizer you apply the Glow finishing oil and then use your Jade Gua Sha tool to reduce puffiness, drain the lymphatic system, and increase blood circulation--all the things that are needed to create that fresh-faced goddess glow.

When integrated consistently into your daily routine...

Benefits of Gua Sha can include:

  • Improve the function of the skin
  • Reduce appearance of deep lines and wrinkles,
  • Minimize sagging skin while toning facial muscles
  • Decrease appearance of rosacea, acne, acne scars, pigmentation, dark circles, puffiness.

Gua Sha can retrain the muscles of the face, relaxing, strengthening, lifting and toning.
