White Jade Gua Sha
The most loved beauty tool in the Team Chill office - now made by us for you.
This hand held tool has roots back to the 14th century where is what a therapy of choice for Chinese emperors. Gua Sha literally translates to "scrape away illness"; however, today we turn to the method for a variety of skin woes. By gliding the tool across face and neck, you can stimulate circulation, de-puff under-eye bags, lift, sculpt, relieve facial tension, and reduce negative energy.
We couldn't live without it and we don't think it'll be long before you feel the same way.
We recommend pairing your gua sha with your favorite facial oil or serum. This will help the tool easily and gently glide along your face and neck, rather that roughly pulling and dragging the skin. We also throw ours in the fridge to boost the results, and well, chill.
Use over clean skin daily for about 3 to 5 minutes. Treat yourself to each exercise 5 times, on both sides of your face for best results.
Jawline and chin massage: glide gua sha upwards from the center of chin out to the earlobe.
Forehead massage: start at the center of forehead, then divide your forehead into three sections when gliding your tool upwards. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again. Continue this motion across forehead.
Cheek: start at nose and work upwards in swooping motion, along cheeks until you reach earlobe. Repeat motion over cheek, moving a bit down each time. Note, you will look flushed after - this means it’s working!!
Under-eye: start at inner corner of eye and glide towards temple. BE GENTLE, your undereyes are sensitive!! We don’t want black eyes just as much as we don’t want under-eye bags.
Lips: Glide across lips, in a back and forth motion.
Neck: Divide neck into 4 sections and scrape from bottom up.

ON MY INABILITY TO MOVE MY BODY
Ability to move the body is something, I feel, we take for granted on an almost daily basis. If you’re able bodied, having the ability to move freely, without restriction or pain, is something to truly cherish. Of course, I’ve only been able to appreciate this now that it’s been taken away from me on an extremely personal level. Before I dive in, let me clarify: I am in no way living life in a disabled body, nor do I claim to.Read more
