This powerful lifetime tool can banish cellulite and help you lose weight
THE RESULTS: great skin, reduced cellulite, lower stress levels, healthier hair and improved sleep
If you like to keep things simple and are looking for only one self-care tool to have in your beauty bag, then look no further than the Hayo’u Beauty Restorer Comb (£38).
This no-fuss technique you can do easily in your morning shower – or even onto dry skin. The Beauty Restorer Comb goes much further than traditional body brushing. In addition to promoting lymphatic drainage to clear toxins, body combing works at an energetic level to rebalance the body; making it effective for weight loss, water retention and reducing cellulite.
Body combing is an ancient Chinese self-healing treatment that is simple and hugely beneficial – just as effective as brushing your teeth. The practice of body combing is pleasurable and has both an immediate impact and long-term benefits on one’s health.
A contemporary form of gua sha, body combing is a deeper, therapeutic massage-style technique of ‘press stroking’ that specifically engages the body’s meridians. It is also a gentler alternative and will be particularly appealing if you prefer not to bring up sha (redness).
Chinese medicine believes that disease and health issues start at an energetic level, with a disruption of qi energy* flow around the head and body. This comb unblocks qi energy and releases stagnation to leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.
Regular five-minute practice in the morning and evening will reveal beautiful, decongested, nourished skin all over your body, and when used on the head, the Beauty Restorer Comb will promote hair growth and reduce headaches. Combing also lowers cortisol levels, which in turn lowers stress, supports immunity and – when used in the evening – aids better and a more restful sleep.
Hayo’u Beauty Restorer Comb is priced at £38.
