You may have seen a gua sha, (pronounced gwa-shah,) on social media or beauty blogs recently but never fully understood what they are or why you need them. We’re here to help teach you how easy they are to use with the help of lifestyle expert, and founder of The Style Editrix, Ashley Fultz. A five minute treatment can relieve stress, drain toxin buildup into the lymphatic system and give you a much needed burst of energy.
If you’ve ever wanted to brighten up your eyes or want to take preventative measures to protect your eyes, Jade Energy is perfect for you. The consistency of the balm is such that it melts and absorbs easily. It is perfect to use with a gua sha tool which requires you to have a little bit of slip on your skin. Gua sha helps to contour, depuff and lift your face. It also instigates and invigorates blood flow into your skin for cell turnover. Jade Energy paired with Gua sha is the perfect way to wake up and energize your skin!
