When using a Gua Sha tool you want to start with a clean face. Then, you’ll mix a little bit of water and oil. I like to use grape seed, almond, or olive oil.
With regular use Gua Sha can tone the skin and promote skin elasticity. It’s also known to relax tension in facial muscles which can cause wrinkles.

The term, “baking your face” has been used in the drag community for years. So, what is the purpose of “baking your face? It’s letting translucent powder sit on your face for 5-10 min, allowing the heat from your face to set your foundation. But, before starting you MUST moisturize your skin to ensure a smooth and creaseless finish. Focus on applying eye cream since the skin around your eyes is more prone to dryness.

A facial is a multi step skin treatment known to be one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin to promote a clear hydrating younger complexion. Getting a facial frequently is known to reduce stress, prevent aging, promote blood circulation, helps detox the skin, is great for treating acne, and eliminates stubborn blackheads.
