After reading about the health benefits of gua sha, I was very keen to try these beautiful gua sha tools gifted by Hayo’u Method. Gua sha is a Chinese Medicine self-care practice, which means press and scrape your skin to help release excess heat out of your body.
The Jade Beauty Restorer is a beautifully designed facial gua sha tool, used after applying oil on your face to help lymph drainage and improve collagen and elastin. It also helps with wrinkles and fine lines.
I’ve been using the tool daily for the last 10 days and it has left my skin with a lovely glow. People have been commenting on how my skin is glowing! It is brilliantly designed to fit the different contours of your face including the top ridge, which is perfect for along your jaw line; the smooth curved end for placing over your eye lids to cool your skin and help with puffy eyes, and the thicker sides to use on your cheeks and forehead in big strokes. I found I had to press more gently over my forehead as my skin is thinner. The Hayo’u Method has some great videos on their Instagram page with a facial expert with different ways to use the tool to lift and rejuvenate the different areas of your face.
It really feels like I’m helping to look after and protect my skin. I also love that the product is made of Jade crystal as that gives extra goodness from the crystal’s balancing properties.
The stainless steel Body Restorer has been a revelation. As I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, after listening to the wonderful Hayo’u founder’s – Katie Brindle – Instagram live videos (@katie_brindle) – it was clear that I had too much heat in my body and it’s incredible how much heat is released when I use the tool after applying oil around the effected joints on my arms and hands! My arm feels less solid and congested after using it. It feels like it’s allowing my body to use an escape valve for heat rather than kicking off other symptoms.
I’ve also been using it down my neck and across my chest to help with lymph drainage. It’s proven to be a great tension reliever in my shoulders and back – far more effective than a normal massage.
Beauty Restorer Comb
I’ve been using the Jade Beauty Restorer Comb over my scalp and body in the shower to help with lymph drainage and I feel really zingy and invigorated afterwards! You follow the meridian lines of your body (all demonstrated in the videos on their website). By helping lymph drainage, it also targets cellulite so I’m looking forward to seeing the further benefits of this tool when I’ve used it a while longer.
I plan to continue using my tools daily as they are a wonderful addition to my nourishing self-care regime. They are the perfect combination of health and beauty. Thank you so much Hayo’u for these beautiful products. Head over to the website https://hayoumethod.com/ or their Instagram @thehayoumethod to find out more. Their website and Instagram account have brilliant videos on how to use the products and information on any contraindications to check before you buy with regards to carrying out gua sha during your period, pregnancy and for older people.
