We don’t have to tell you there’s no shortage of gadgets, fancy machines, and pricey medi-spa treatments geared toward achieving bodycare results. Here at Wildling, however, we like to keep things as natural as possible when it comes to caring for ourselves.
This is as true for the body as it is for the face, which is why we use time-tested tools & rituals - rooted in traditions that have been performed for centuries - when it comes to our slow & soothing self-care routines.
When it comes to body care, our Aura Ritual, which features both body gua sha with our Aura Stone and dry brushing with our Aura Sweeper, is our low-tech (but high-yield!) results-driven answer to a world with increasingly complex self-care options.
These practices of gua sha and dry brushing, rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, respectively, offer a holistic approach to self-care and are easily incorporated into daily routines. When combined with our Aura Activator & Aura Oil, dry brushing and body gua sha offer a full-body self-care ritual that lifts, tones, sculpts, and softens – the Wildling way.
Dry Brushing, the first step in our signature Aura Ritual, involves using our Aura Sweeper to ‘brush’ the skin in a specific pattern, moving from outer extremities towards the heart. This technique exfoliates the skin, sloughs dead skin cells and clears pores. The result? Smoother, brighter, and more evenly toned skin.
Additionally, dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, something we are majorly into here at Wildling, because it aids in detoxification and boosts immune function. Regular dry brushing is likely reduce the appearance of cellulite by promoting lymphatic drainage and enhancing blood flow.
Similar to body gua sha, dry brushing has numerous mental and emotional benefits. Used together, as in the Aura Ritual, you’ll double down on calming effects, helping to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Using our Aura Sweeper is also invigorating – it revitalizes the nervous system and promotes mental clarity. Calming & energizing; we think of it as the best of both worlds!
Next up we recommend a shower or bath, followed by application of our Aura Seaweed Detox Body Mist & Aura Rose Pepper Body Toning Oil, and then a full body gua sha ritual. We’ll show you how, in detail, here. Body gua sha will tone & tighten the skin, alleviate the appearance of rippled or dimpled skin, and alleviate tension & muscle starin.
We recommend performing the Aura Ritual up to daily, and at least twice a week. Bonus bodycare: use the Aura Oil as daily body oil, even if you won’t be performing the ritual. Formulated with wild rose pepper and wild mastic, it will even & tone skin on days between gua sha.
