We’ve been sharing their no-tox facial gua sha secrets to plump lips and release “eleven lines” and we can’t wait to share this step-by-step Empress Ritual. We like to think of this as the motherlode of all gua sha facial release techniques, so if you’re new to gua sha, you’re in luck…
The Ritual Gua Sha Facial
Stage 1 | Empress Tonic: Prepares the skin to absorb the oil, sweet fern, damask rose and Douglas fir plant waters which stimulate skin detoxification.
Stage 2 | Empress Oil: The Balm of Gilead and a resin nutrient complex nourishes skin and frees the flow by stimulating circulation.
Stage 3 | Empress Stone & Wand: Massage active ingredients into the skin more deeply than hands alone ever could, while rejuvenating, detoxing, lifting and toning.
