My Favorite DIY Anti-Aging Facial Massage

I discovered it just this year, but wish I knew earlier! The benefits and visible results amazing! I love the way my skin feels tight, toned, and has a natural healthy glow.

This facial is especially great for Acne, Puffiness, Wrinkles & Jaw Tension.

Facial Gua Sha moves lymphatic fluid that gets built-up in the face (hello morning puffiness!), which carries away toxins that can contribute to acne and dull, irritated skin. Gua Sha benefits include tones the muscles of the face which can help with sagging skin!

Where can I get a tool?

I bought my tool off of Amazon for just $16 and I love it! It even came with more instructions! AMAZON GUA SHA TOOL

How do I start?

  1. I like to start a pot of tea and have it near me, It’s important to hydrate especially before and after for the health of your skin and because you will need to rinse out all the toxins after the massage.
  2. Prep your space in front of a mirror with all your tools, if you don’t have a tool, have clean hands or use a small +large spoon.
  3. Wash face and apply a warm wet face towel to lay on your face and neck area to open pores.
  4. Apply facial oil and follow the video below. fullsizeoutput_5256.jpeg

Let me know how it goes and how you feel after!!

***For those who got my Holiday Wellness Kit or purchased my Relaxing facial oil, use this video to guide you through your facial massage, If you don’t have a Gua Sha tool or jade roller it’s ok, You can use clean hands or the back of a cold spoon too!***

My Flow Myst Debut

I’ve been nerding out for the longest time now, with endless research, lavish explorations, and testing. Specifically after the sweatiest practices, the dullest days, on the most sensitive skin, and on the most unlikely individuals.So now I’m happy to present my mini line of practice, mat, and body sprays.  ….FLOW MYST…

IMG_2035.JPG***Flow Myst- An all in one!! Intense yoga mat freshener, bad vibe killer, pre or post workout body Myst!! Choose from 4 blends:

  • #1 HIIFLOW- Energizing floral and citrus notes to excite the senses
  • #2 WORKITOUT- crisp, clean, minty, great for a pre-workout to clear the fog and post-workout set you off feeling fresh, think “mint julep.”
  • #3 HUM- good vibes blend, earthy, chill, grounded, focused, notes of frankincense, and sandalwood.(( Hum is the sound of your 5th chakra, it relates to creativity, speaking your inner truth and is one of my faves overall. ))
