Rose Quartz + Gua Sha = Facial Rejuvenation

Hello Beauties!

Today I want to talk about something that might be missing from your skin care routine. It’s not another cream, cleanser or serum, but an essential, luxurious tool that will leave you with your best-looking skin possible. The tool? A rose quartz gua sha stone. 

But Natalie…aren’t  gua sha stones gimmicky? Aren’t they just designed to look nice on your vanity? 

While it’s true, rose quartz  gua sha stones are beautiful, this natural stone tool actually provides quite a few benefits. For me, the gua sha stone immediately reduced the appearance of my jowls - it smoothed and refined my jawline. And honestly? I just felt more beautiful, because I knew I was taking better care of myself. 

For those of you interested in the spiritual/metaphysical properties behind rose quartz, you may already know that it’s considered the “Affection Stone.” In crystal healing, rose quartz is used to help cultivate self-love and release negative feelings. This deeper meaning couldn’t be more appropriate since we think these amazing little gua sha stones are the perfect addition to your self-care ritual!

Healing with Rose Quartz

♥ Self-love ♥ Caring ♥ Kindness ♥ Friendship ♥ Improves Self Esteem

"Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. It restores trust and harmony in relationships, and encourages unconditional love. Rose Quartz purifies as it opens the heart at all levels to promote love, self-love, friendship, deep inner healing and feelings of peace.  Calming and reassuring, it helps to comfort in times of grief.

Additionally, this stone dispels negativity and protects against environmental pollution, replacing it with loving vibes. It encourages self-forgiveness and acceptance invoking self-trust and self-worth."

Rose Quartz strengthens and balances the physical heart and circulatory system, and releases impurities from body fluids. Who doesn’t want to start their day with all this positivity? Hello!

While using a gua sha stone as a part of your daily skincare regimen is certainly relaxing, this tool provides a number of benefits as well. Gua Sha stones have been shown to help increase circulation, reduce puffiness, improve the appearance of under-eye circles, smooth the look of wrinkles and even help ease pain. Most importantly, gua sha stones just make you feel good. It’s like giving yourself a little massage every day!

Perhaps the most dramatic result that comes from using a gua sha stone is lymphatic drainage. Have you ever woken up and your face and eyes look a little swollen and full? This swelling is a result of an accumulation of lymph fluid. Our body drains lymph fluids every day as a part of our natural process, but sometimes your skin needs a little boost. Rose quartz gua sha stones to the rescue! Massaging your skin with this smooth gua sha stone can help to drain lymph fluid from your face, getting rid of the bad stuff and revealing smoother looking skin. 

But Natalie…how can I remember to give myself a massage every day? 

So glad you asked! I set a daily reminder in my phone to use my gua sha when I'm washing my face and getting ready for bed. When you incorporate a gua sha stone into your daily skincare routine, you’ll be giving your skin a massage that helps drain and contour your face, all while applying your favorite products at the same time. In fact, we recommend using a gua sha stone as the final step in your skincare routine to help equally distribute and boost the absorption of the product. 

On a personal level, I just love the way that using a high-quality product like this helps to boost my self-esteem. Using a gua sha stone is an easy, accessible way that I can care for myself. At the end of the day, I always know that I did at least one thing to help make myself look and feel my best. Now that’s self-love! 

But Natalie…where can I get my own rose quartz gua sha stone? 

We thought you might ask. I love this product so much that I decided it was time to make them available to my beauty tribe. Rose quartz gua sha stones are now available for purchase on our site! I recommend using them with our Renu Face Cream, Renu Vitamin C+ Serum and our Eye Serum. You’ll love the results!

Until next time!

Love, Natalie

Ecstasy, as a concept, is usually tied to experiences with food, sexual activity, and even recreational drug use. So the idea of finding ecstasy in your workplace is probably a foreign concept. But what would it look like to actually work within an ecstatic or euphoric state? It would look like flow...
