Gua Sha – you might not have heard about this massage technique before, but the Chinese face treatment (originally used as part of traditional Chinese medicine to relieve chronic pain from inflammation) is said to have been around for over 700 years. Recently, the ancient method has been doing rounds on TikTok, leaving users stunned by the dramatic before and after results. Subsequently, Gua Sha has seen a 308% year on year increase in web searches*- that’s TikTok trends for you! Feel like trying an at home face lift without the price tag? There’s plenty of tools to choose from to get-your gua-sha-on at home, like this new Rose Quartz Massager from Nourish London. Happy sculpting!

Not only are these little ice globes almost therapeutic to look at, but their apparent soothing and de-puffing qualities are what’s got everyone talking. To feel the full benefits, leave in the freezer for at least 30 mins, and then massage for 10 mins on freshly cleansed skin. Expect to find your skin looking fresh and hydrated with the added bonus of potential reduction in unwanted pigmentation, a brighter and tighter complexion PLUS diminished dark circles. These FRAÎCHEUR Ice Globes are said to be the original glow getting globes and have recently launched on Cult Beauty –  they’re already in our basket…

Micro Management


As if we haven’t got enough ‘at home’ variants of beauty treatments buzzing around after 2020, now you can microneedle from the comfort of your own bathroom. Yes, the concept may have been kicking about for longer than Coronavirus, but with new releases from skincare work-out specialists Face Gym, it’s hard not to be tempted. Their new Hyaluronic Dissolving Face Roller is turning heads (and complexions) due to its innovative approach in intense cellular rejuvenation. It promises to deliver a system that creates tiny micro-channels, pushing product deeper into the skin.
