Now more than ever, for many of us, self-care and beauty often go hand in hand. It's not just important to take care of yourself on the outside with creams and serums; you have to take care of yourself on the inside too. The new REMIX by Giselle Wasfie Re:Wand Facial Tool demonstrates that balance.
If a gua sha tool and a jade roller had a baby and it learned reflexology for the face, you'd get the Remix by Giselle Wasfie Re:Wand Facial Tool ($80). It's a smooth, handmade stone from Madagascar made out of kambaba jasper. It was developed by the brand's founder, Giselle Wasfie, DACM, a doctor of East Asian medicine. Wasfie likes to combine crystal healing with remixed principles of energy medicine for inner and outer beauty and wellness. In traditional East Asian medicine, the "shen" (spirit) is said to open up to the face "like a window into the soul," explained Wasfie. It's also taught that the face is a map of the internal body and different energy pathways called meridians flow from it to the rest of the body.
The Re:Wand Facial Tool allows you to achieve balance and try your hand at acupressure from the comfort of your home. The beautiful stone is designed to be run along the skin over different points to unlock a multitude of benefits. When you apply gentle pressure with the wand in sweeping upward motions, it revitalizes skin by stimulating blood flow, reduces puffiness, and smooths fine lines (similar to gua sha). There are also a variety of internal benefits that come with using the stone, like muscle tension relief (such as in the jaw) and balanced chakras.
Like jade rolling or gua sha, incorporating the Re:Wand Facial Tool into your beauty routine — even if it's just weekly — can help you set aside more time to take care of yourself. To get you started, Wasfie has tutorials on how to use the stones based on what you're trying to achieve. The Remix by Giselle Wasfie Re:Wand Facial Tool ($80) is available for purchase at Remixlife.style now, and $1 from each purchase will be donated to the AAPI Fund.
