Yindi's Tiger Eye Gua Sha Stone is made from South African Tiger Eye stone, carefully selected and sculpted to fit around your facial skin, eyes and nose. This strong shades of brown, gold and black representing the Tiger Eye stone is associated with strong emotions, passion and love.
In ancient Chinese healing, Gua means to stroke or press, and Sha refers to redness. Ancient Chinese practices believe that redness obtained through scraping encourages the skin to heal itself. While the modern-day Gua Sha practice using semi precious stone is far less intense, it will definitely leave you with a well-sculpted face.
Adding a Gua Sha stone to your skincare routine is an amazing way to massage your face and neck by releasing any tensed muscles. The Gua Sha massage is known to:
- Boost collagen production to reduce appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
- Reduce appearance of dark circles, eye bags and puffiness around the eyes by increasing blood circulation and reducing water retention
- Firm facial muscles that cause saggy skin
- Brighten skin appearance by improving blood circulation
Every Yindi Tiger Eye Gua Sha Stone comes with a batik cotton pouch to keep your Gua Sha safe and sound.
Directions of use:
Start off by cleansing your face and neck with a gentle cleanser. From there, you’ll want to apply your products part of your skincare routine. Products rich in antioxidants will absorb more efficiently into the deeper layers of the skin with a Gua Sha massage.
We recommend using Yindi Urbanite Skin Revivial + Brightening Face Oil. This antioxidant-rich blend provides an instant glow by increasing facial blood circulation and plumps the skin. This combo is a match made in heaven you bet!
You Can Even Use a Gua Sha Stone On Your Scalp
One of the newest beauty trends is using a Gua Sha stone for your scalp. A scalp massage should be performed gently. Although you could use your fingertips to massage your scalp, a Gua Sha stone is a great way to supplement it!
Just like with your facial skin, the key is to apply gentle, even pressure. A Gua Sha scalp massage has a number of benefits like potentially assisting hair growth and helping with head and neck muscle tension.
Who Should Avoid Using A Gua Sha Stone?
Those with active acne, eczema, irritated/broken skin, or rosacea.
Pregnant women should consult their doctors before starting trying Gua Sha.
Every One Gua Sha is Different to Another
As our Gua Sha is crafted using natural stone sourced from the earth, each one of them is unique in nature. They vary in colour, pattern, veining and texture due to its unique formation from different levels of heat and pressure.
