Get a smooth and bright complexion thanks to lymphatic drainage

You've probably heard of lymphatic drainage and its health benefits more than once. And if you ever wanted to benefit from these results, but you weren't sure how you could do it yourself or without the help of a specialist, we now have a solution for you!

We will present a device specially created to accelerate the elimination of toxins through lymphatic drainage; a textured roller - and yes, its texture makes it so special, because its surface offers a deep massage, able to stimulate the elimination of toxins from the tissues. But let's first look at what this lymphatic drainage is and what its effects are on the skin.

What is lymphatic drainage?

Lymphatic drainage is a massage technique that consists of performing specific movements, with light pressure, on the skin, techniques that move the lymph, the fluid of the lymphatic system that contains toxins, that is, from our tissues to the outside.

The massage itself is the one that causes the elimination of toxins from under the skin, and if it is practiced regularly, it improves blood flow and helps oxygenate the tissues.

In essence, there is a cleansing, a purification and hence the many extraordinary benefits on our body because decongestion restores the firmness and vitality of the body.

Of course, the first question may be, if it is so simple, why doesn’t everyone enjoy these effects? The answer is simple- this massage should be performed regularly and correctly, but this is not at all difficult when you have a few devices at hand that will significantly ease the process.

Although they have been in vogue for a relatively short time, facial massage rollers have been widely used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years. As early as the 7th century, Chinese empresses used these rolls to detoxify the skin and prevent the appearance of bags under the eyes. Today, we can enjoy the same benefits if we prove a little patience with them and slowly integrate them into our daily routine.

Roller types and differences 

There are several types of massage rollers, but let’s discuss one with a textured surface, as it is the most suitable for stimulating deep lympathic drainage.

While smooth surface rollers are special for sensitive or slightly irritated skin, textured ones are used for more mature skin in need of lifting and presenting fine lines and wrinkles. Indeed, the signs of aging skin can be combated with the help of such a roller massage because its texture stimulates circulation, tones the skin and gently exfoliates it, improving the appearance of smile lines, expression but also deeper wrinkles.

Rollers can be included in any type of skincare routine, regardless of the time of day. There are many benefits when used in combination with cosmetics. They facilitate a faster and deeper absorption of skin care products, helping the skin to hydrate deeply.

Pink Quartz — The Most Popular Stone

Of all the natural stones on the market, the most popular is Rose Quartz. Many people prefer it because of their skin type. For example, if you have a sensitive complexion, which is easily irritated and does not reconcile with a variety of creams, it is advisable to use textured Pink Quartz textured Mini Rollers because this stone is the stone of love, meaning the friendliest and gentlest of all stones. Moreover, Pink Quartz rollers help reduce stress and negative energy, as their properties repair, heal and renew cells.

How does textured rolling support lymphatic drainage?

Deep massage of the skin with the help of textured rollers stimulates the lymph nodes, thus accelerating the elimination of toxins from the body. The process starts at the level of the face and goes down to the neck area. All facial tension is thus reduced and an energetic recovery takes place.

Textured rolling is an alternative to micro-needling therapy. It stimulates the regenerative function of the skin without destroying the epidermis. The textured roll can also be used to reduce cellulite, stretch marks and scars on the body. Our recommendation is to opt for a set of textured rollers so that you can benefit from their different properties.

Benefits

Using rollers for facial massage has several benefits. Massaging with these rollers prevents skin aging, by toning the facial muscles and improving elasticity. Also, if used correctly, the textured facial massage roller helps to renew the skin cells. Another benefit is that the rollers improve blood circulation and contribute to the production of collagen in the face.

In addition, textured Mini Rollers relieve tension in the face and jaw, accelerating the elimination of toxins.

Conclusion

Facial massage rollers are the best tool for performing lymphatic drainage on your own. This massage technique is the simplest alternative when you want to benefit from all these wonderful effects on the skin, right from the comfort of your home. The massage is easy to perform if you follow the instructions in the package, it is only necessary to perform it daily, using repeated movements, for 3-5 minutes.

Everything you need to know about the benefits of Gua Sha massage

What is Gua Sha?

A Gua Sha massage is a form of non-invasive therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine for cell regeneration, treatment and relaxation. Done correctly, a Gua Sha massage helps eliminate any energy blockage, lymphatic drainage and offers an efficient facelift.

Unlike the Gua Sha body massage,the facial massage with this stone does not require the involvement of a therapist, is easy to perform even at home and can be effortlessly incorporated into your daily skin care routine.

How is it used?

You can use Gua Sha stone in the morning, to prepare the skin for makeup, in the evening, to relax the muscles, or even during the day for lifting and contouring. All you have to do is apply a small amount of oil, serum or moisturizer and massage the skin for 3-5 minutes using the Gua Sha stone. For a complete effect, make sure you spend enough time on the massage to touch all areas: forehead, cheeks, neck and décolleté area.

Benefits

But why is this stone so special and how can the Gua Sha therapy bring so many benefits? Let's find out together!

Contouring and Lifting Effect

It's all about its shape, which mimics the natural curves of the face - a properly applied Gua Sha facial massage provides a precise and deep contour, thus accelerating lymphatic drainage. The two curved tips of the stone are used for the jaw line, the long parts are used for large areas such as the forehead, cheeks or neck, and the simple curved edge is used for eye contour.

Stimulation of Blood Circulation

The movements made during the Gua Sha stone massage stimulate the microcirculation in the soft tissues. The blood flow to the capillaries increases during the massage due to the pressure applied, resulting in the stagnated blood  in the capillaries being replaced with fresh, oxygenated blood. But do not overdo it with the pressure level applied; start with light touches, gradually testing the right pressure for your skin type.

Lymphatic Drainage

A Gua Sha massage has been shown to help tone the face by stimulating the lymphatic system. This is the second circulatory system and an important part of the immune system. During the massage, a Gua Sha device acts directly on the pressure points, accelerating lymphatic drainage.

Production of Collagen and Elastin 

Collagen and elastin are the elements that give elasticity and firmness to your skin. As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and firmness while  our body begins to produce less and less collagen. It may sound scary, but collagen production begins to decline after the age of 20. By stimulating the lymphatic system and the circulatory system during the Gua Sha massage, the production of collagen and elastin is activated. This helps prevent wrinkles, reduce fine lines and maintain the elasticity and firmness of the skin for a longer period of time.

Deep Moisture and Hydration

Another benefit of a Gua Sha facial massage is the intense  moisture and hydration it provides to the skin. Through the movements made during the massage and the applied pressure, the Gua Sha stone warms the skin and facilitates the absorption of cosmetics, for a deep hydrating effect. For a complete relaxing result, the Gua Sha can be warmed up with the dual function within the Mini Cosmetic Fridge.

We know that a Gua Sha stone massage promotes blood circulation and stimulates the production of collagen and elastane and a direct effect of these two benefits is to reduce wrinkles and reduce fine lines. Used regularly, the Gua Sha stone works by stimulating the deep layers of the skin, which in turn stimulates the production of collagen and elastane. These two are the elements that your skin needs to look fresh and rejuvenated.

Who benefits from such a massage?

Easy—everyone! Not only does a Gua Sha facial massage promote lymphatic drainage, restore energy balance and healing, but it also increases blood flow to soft tissues, stimulates collagen production and relaxes facial muscles! Given the benefits of the Gua Sha, it is not surprising that it has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years.

All you need to do to get these benefits is to include a Gua Sha stone massage in your daily skin care routine. It is important not to be discouraged if at first the movements do not come naturally to you. Regular application of the massage is the key. In time you will become an expert in Gua Sha!

And to make the massage an even more pleasant experience, on our website you can choose from three Gua Sha stones according to your preferences. Each stone has different metaphysical properties. The Pink Quartz Stones Gua Sha calm, invigorate and heal, theWhite Quartz Stone helps you concentrate and gives you energy while the Gua Sha sodalite stone gives courage and helps to create an emotional balance.
