The Best Facial Rollers and Gua Sha Tools for Beautiful Skin
Facial rollers and Gua Sha tools are currently all the rage, but did you know that the jade and quartz skin care tools date all the way back to ancient China? Facial rollers are a quick and convenient option to stimulate blood flow and drain puffiness from the skin, in addition to helping skin care products absorb better. Gua Sha tools are small, hand-held devices with rounded edges made from jade, rose quartz or metal, and are used to scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension hidden in deeper layers of muscle. Tip: Store your facial roller or Gua Sha tools in the refrigerator for an extra refreshing touch!
