Are You Still Dry Brushing: Top Five Reasons You Should Switch to Gua Sha

Of all the things we can thank 2020 for (the list is perhaps a little grim), ranking #1 would be the enormous amount of information we have all gained about our health, wellness and most importantly, how to care for our skin.

Our Skin is the largest organ in the body, our first line of defense, and also what takes on the greatest burden from our day-to-day life. 

“If we’re going to up-the-ante for skin care then we should be going all-in, and what we mean by all in is FULL BODY.” 

 

Contour harnesses the Traditional Chinese Medicine practice of pulling and pushing the skin to release tension, increase circulation, stimulate collagen and to detoxify the skin. It’s a highly recommended act of self-care that only takes five minutes a day and comes with a tremendous number of health benefits.

If you’re still just dry brushing, it’s time to level up and move on, and here are the top five reasons to make the switch. 

 

1. Cellulite Management 

Okay, it’s not really about your health, but it’s all about how you feel, and we want you to feel confident, sexy and healthy. 

In our product research, we discovered that 88% of women report having (completely natural and healthy) signs of cellulite.

The cause of cellulite is only speculated, but what we know for sure, is that cellulite is made up of fat deposits that sit between long fibrous connective tissue under the skin. When these fat deposits push up against the skin, they give the appearance of dimpled or uneven textures.

One way to manage the appearance of cellulite is to use pressure to redistribute these fatty deposits. Using Contour, you can target your hips, thighs and abdomen to help smooth and soften your skin with intention, helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. 

Hallelujah! 

“In our product research, we discovered that 88% of women report having (completely natural and healthy) signs of cellulite."

2. Detoxification

How your body detoxifies one of the most important aspects to long term health.

Using moderate pressure along your entire body with Contour stimulates circulation in your soft tissue by expanding arteries and increasing blood flow throughout the body.  

This ritual stimulates the lymphatic system, further increasing circulation and detoxification of the skin. Moving the lymphatic system also strengthens your immune system and helps to relieve stagnant energy from the body, reducing bloating and de-puffing skin.

3. Collagen Stimulation

Contour uses moderate pressure to glide over wet or moisturized skin, creating painless, undetectable ‘controlled micro trauma’ without breaking the skin. This micro-trauma signals to the body to bring fresh blood, oxygen, nutrients and collagen to the area to repair, heal and renew cells. 

4. Body Aches and Muscle Recovery

Applying moderate pressure to the skin in firm, sweeping strokes, Contour helps to break up restrictions in the Myofascial, a thin layer of connective tissue that encases muscles and contributes to aches and stiffness. This Myofascial release can bring relief to pain and inflammation in the body and can improve the health of your joints by accelerating muscle recovery.

5. Anti Aging

Preserving our vitality is critical to our long term health and wellness, everyday, in all ways. 

Taking five minutes a day to take care of your body from head-to help give your body the anti aging rejuvenation it needs. Using Contour every day, help to restore firmness and elasticity in the skin, promote a brighter, smoother complexion, promote lymphatic drainage, and increase circulation. /p>

These acts combined help to deliver nutrients, oxygen and fresh blood flow to every corner of your body, allowing your cells to rebound and rebuild with the tools it needs. 

If this year has shown us anything, it’s that we need to care for ourselves in every way possible, which simply does NOT exclude, beautiful, simple moments of self love by way of a full body treatment.

In fact, we encourage it.

HOW TO CONTOUR

Sixty seconds is all you really need.

Use Contour after showering on either freshly oiled, or moisturized skin.

Holding the handle of the Gua Sha and using long, firm, sweeping strokes, place the concave curved side to skin and glide Contour from your ankles UP over calves, thighs, abdomen and buttocks towards the heart. 

And using the same motion over the neck, chest and arms, DOWN towards the heart. 

For best results, repeat over each area between 5-8 times.
