The Gua Sha Stone
This recently re-born smooth spa rock has all the hype on Tik-Tok. It has so much hype that even Vogue has come out to investigate. If you haven’t heard of the Gua Sha before, you have probably seen it. This object acts like a stone face roller, overtime depuffing your skin, making it smoother, and even erasing wrinkles. The treatment involves using a tool to rub the skin in long strokes, applying enough pressure to create minor bruising. This may sound a little scary and painful, but it will eventually help by breaking down scar tissue and improving movement in the joints of your face, causing your face to look more slim and smooth. This is the original form of self-care, and people have been using this same process for decades. Whether it be with soup spoons or knuckles, people have been attempting to depuff their skin since the beginning of time. Well, now that it’s 2021, there’s a tool for it.
So, don’t pay hundreds of dollars to go get a painful facial and have your skin worked on for hours at a dermatologist. Just purchase one of these Gua Sha tools and use it consistently- each morning and night while your skin is moist and clean. I can guarantee you will start to see results within a week.
You can get any of these face roller and Gua Sha stones at Sephora, Amazon, Ulta, Target, and others.
Chlorophyll Water? EW?
I know. Looks can be deceiving. Who would willingly want to chug a glass of green water? Let me tell you though… beauty is pain.
Chlorophyll plays an important role in making plants green and healthy. It also has vitamins, antioxidants, and therapeutic properties that have the potential to benefit your body. Here’s what it does:
- stimulating the immune system
- eliminating fungus in the body
- detoxifying your blood
- cleaning your intestines
- getting rid of bad odors
- energizing the body
- preventing cancer
Chlorophyll has been proven to heal the skin, reducing bacterial growth in skin wounds and reducing inflammation. It is also considered to be a blood builder, improving the quality of red blood cells.
Chlorophyll comes in the form of sprays, tablets, and drops and you can buy these at most of your local health stores, and also on Amazon. Here are a few recommendations for chlorophyll supplements to try.
So, are you going to hop on the April 2021 self-care trend and buy any of these products?
