Ancient rituals that you should know about

Ancient rituals that you should know about

Having your routine and rituals is not just calming, but also makes you stay present at the time.

This time we took a look at the two beauty products that originate from ancient China or another part of Asia and can help you to start and maintain your skincare routine.
Made from cooling stones, Gua Sha and Jade/Quartz or Onix roller, are now essential tools in the cosmetic industry.



Roller
The tool generally features a larger stone for cheeks, jaw, and forehead and a smaller stone for under the eyes and around the mouth.
To use it, apply a few drops of Midnight Beauty rich revitalizing serum rose & coriander on your face. Take a roller and gentle pressure while rolling tool from the center of your face in upward and outward motions.
The gentle massaging motion will increase circulation and “stimulate“ the lymphatic system and lymphatic drainage throughout the face.
The coolness of the Jade/Quartz or Onix stone will feel nice, smooth and soothing on your skin. The massaging motion will be enjoyable and will release the tension of your face.

Overall, we think the roller does its job but is not necessary that your face will look less puffy after you use it.

Gua sha
It was originally used in Chinese medicine and is meant to scrap your skin, to cause tissue damage in the belief of medicinal benefit.
We also used the tool with our Midnight Beauty rich revitalizing serum rose & coriander. It felt very relaxing. We loved it.
Studies have shown that this daily ritual of using Gua sha tool around one minute a day, will soon bring results and long term benefits.

It will improve your microcirculation by up to 400 percent, reduce wrinkles, rejuvenate, tone and smoothe your skin, and even decongest the sinuses.


Hands
We tried the same technique with our hands. And using our fingertips and filling every inch and structure of our skin feels relaxing and another sort of meditation. 

Try it out for yourself and notice the difference, your skin with become plumped and glowing!

But whatever you choose, don't forget to read all about our Woman 2 Woman campaign first to start your day with even more wisdom in our monthly spiritual interviews with inspiring women, just like you.
