Mount Lai’s Jade Facial Spa Set is all you need for a spa-worthy facial massage at home. The handy set contains two must-have beauty tools: a facial roller to depuff and soothe the skin, and a gua sha to relax facial muscles and drain lymph nodes. They’re both made from smooth jade, which has naturally cooling properties for an instantly invigorating and refreshing sensation. The facial roller has two sides, with the smaller roller ideal for combatting sensitive and hard-to-reach areas like the inner eye corners, while the gua sha aids in reducing inflammation and improving blood circulation. Packaged in a sleek case, this set makes for a great gift for yourself or a loved one.
How to use the facial roller: Apply a serum or facial oil to cleansed skin. Take the facial roller and gently glide it along your desired areas using an upward motion.
How to use the gua sha: Apply a serum or facial oil to cleansed skin. Using light yet firm pressure, sweep the gua sha across different areas of your face using upward or sideways strokes.
For best results, use the facial roller daily. Use it on its own or in conjunction with other skincare such as creams and sheet masks, as the roller will help your skin absorb products more effectively.
Though it’s perfectly safe to use the gua sha daily, we recommend starting out by using it thrice a week to see how your skin responds to it.
Note: when starting your gua sha practice, your skin aggravated and experienced breakouts in the first two weeks. This is completely normal! You are putting a healthy amount of pressure on your skin combined with a serum, deeply reaching and cleaning underneath the surface of your skin.
This breakout, also known as a “purge,” is a good thing! You are helping your skin purge all the bad stuff so it’s cleaner, healthier, and ready to absorb the good stuff.
