Beauty tools, such as the dermaroller combined with the serum discussed here, serve to enhance the benefits of cosmetics as well as transform the beauty routine into a spa moment. In the context of a spring remise en forme that focuses on awakening the body, dedicated body care tools are also functional. Where to start?
The body tools
The dry brushing brush. This is undoubtedly the best-known body tool. The brush is made with vegan bristles and produces a gentle exfoliation that makes the skin smoother and brighter. In fact, the bristles remove dead cells and impurities, cueing regeneration. A gesture that awakens the body, renews the vital energy of the skin with the same effect on the spirit as well. It is recommended to use it two or three times a week before showering.
The gua sha for the body. This bluntly shaped tool (Gua means to rub, Sha means heat, just the heat generated by massage) is used in traditional Chinese medicine to massage the face with a lifting and draining effect: it frees the skin of toxins and consequently improves texture. It is usually made of Giada stone, obsidian, rose quartz or amethyst. How is gua sha used on the body? With movements that follow the meridians and allow energy (qi) to flow. You use the gua sha from the smooth edge side, so you press the skin for a long time to increase circulation and cue stagnant energy. With gentle pressure, you pass the tool along the contours of the arms, legs, torso, feet, and hands in long, sweeping movements facing outward and not back and forth, avoiding pressing on the bones. Massage brings physical relaxation and is connected to spiritual renewal. At the same time, it helps the moisturizing agents in the body oil to penetrate the skin better. The advice is to use it at least twice a week to feel the benefits.
The anti-cellulite roller. The cure to combat cellulite starts now, and the roller enhances the application of the lipolytic and draining cream. The rollers in the massager promote the expulsion of stagnant fluids under the skin, tone the affected area, smooth it and activate circulation.
Cream to match:
Collagenil Body Remodeling, is a multi-action anti-aging body cream with a comfortable and rich texture specifically formulated to firm, tone, and smooth vital skin. It helps shape body contours by limiting fat accumulation, and cues subcutaneous metabolism. How to apply: on thighs, belly, buttocks, and hips massage with open palms and with a little more energy. On inner thighs apply the cream with lighter pressure, going up to the groin.
Foam roller. This roller is a fitness tool that also works for cellulite. The foam roller has a smooth rubber surface and originated as a massage tool in physiotherapy; it stretches and relaxes the muscles and increases circulation, which is why it is also used in stretching before and after a workout. Its pressure exerts myofascial release, that is, the fascia, the connective tissue that covers the muscles. You place the roller under the affected area, in this case, the hips where the culotte de cheval are formed, and proceed by moving back and forth. Myofascial massage is very good for reoxygenating tissues and eliminating fluid stagnation. Many useful exercises can be found in the Blackroll application.
Quartz roller. This tool is similar to the face roller but is designed for the body. It stimulates blood microcirculation and lymphatic drainage, smooths and tones the skin, and improves tissue oxygenation, giving relaxation and relaxation to the muscles. A beauty gesture of self-care that invigorates if you keep the roller in the refrigerator.
