Natural cosmetics, like kings and queens Part 18, the facial massage of the goddess Isis

Facial massage with stones to give more tone and brightness to the skin, able to counteract the signs of aging and dark circles
According to an ancient Egyptian legend, Isis, the bride of the god Osiris and mother of Horus, the falcon-headed deity, had the habits to look for rose quartz stones in the Nile and to pass them on the face and around the eyes. In this way, in fact, according to the legend, she took care of her divine beauty by fighting time and wrinkles and showing always a bright skin. Stone massage has gained much fame over the centuries and in different parts of the world, becoming a fundamental technique of traditional Chinese medicine with the name of gua sha.

Gua sha, when done on the face, is characterized by light and delicate touches so as not to irritate the skin. But its benefits are truly incredible, not only according to legends and traditions, but also based on scientific research.
