How to Use

THE EMPRESS FACIAL RITUAL SYSTEM

Delivery Process

GUA SHA METHOD

The facial gua sha method works by releasing tension in the muscles of the face, smoothing out the fascia, and circulating blood and lymph through the tissues.

It also delivers whole plant actives from our products into the deeper layers of the skin for increased absorption and effectiveness. The result is deeply hydrated, plump, toned, and sculpted skin with a radiant glow.

The Empress Ritual System:

Stage 1

HYDRATE & DETOXIFY

Stage 1

Empress Tonic - After cleansing, the Empress Tonic primes skin to absorb face oil. It's an essential step in activating the skin, preparing it for gua sha, and maximizing results. Plant wanters from nutrient-dense sweet fern, damask rose, and Douglas fir stimulate detoxification, promote lymphatic drainage, and hydrate to amplify your gua sha practice.

FAQs

The Empress Ritual is helpful for clearing breakout prone skin, however you should not gua sha over active breakouts. The skin care products work well for breakout prone skin. To learn more click here.

The strokes should be gentle on the face, especially around the eyes. Think of how gently you would frost a cake — it doesn't take a lot of pressure to get great results. In fact, when moving lymph, it’s important to use light pressure. (Read more about lymph drainage on our blog.)

Clean your stone prior to each use with warm water and a skin-friendly cleanser or soap. We recommend storing it in the Empress Pouch as they are relatively fragile. Even diamonds can break when dropped!

For best results, practice at least 3 times per week. Daily use is encouraged, but not more than once per day.
