Do you gua sha? That’s the Ancient Chinese wellness practice of facial massage, using a sleekly curved stone tool, drawn gently across your face, to stimulate muscles and promote lymphatic drainage. Alder’s sleek gua sha tool is fashioned from black obsidian, the gorgeous crystal that forms when lava cools down and solidifies. Molded into the distinct curves of the gua sha tool, this will be an elevated addition to your skincare routine. Take a deep breath, slowly massage your face with your gua sha tool, and watch the tension fall away. Alder New York is an independent skincare brand devoted to inclusivity, simplicity and ritual.
