Q4: Do I need to be using retinol?
One of the main ingredients in our Youth Beauty Face Oil is Rosehip oil, not Rosehip seed but Rosehip oil, containing the whole fruit, which contains 10x more pro-vitamin A than Rosehip seed oil, an excellent source of topical trans-retinoic acid in a natural form.
Retinoic acid, found in Tretinoin, also called Retinol (Vitamin A), is synthetic, very strong, and toxic in any dosage. It must be applied under medical supervision and has possible undesirable side effects and health repercussions.
Rosehip Oil, however, produces all the benefits of Tretinoin but without the undesirable, toxic side effects since it is in a natural state as part of a complex system of unsaturated fatty acids. Therefore, its action is controlled and slowly released by nature, as it should be.
Some dermatologists will tell you that you can safely manage retinol and just need to be careful. But I have seen enough studies to believe that it is toxic in any dosage and shouldn’t be used on your skin. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) rates Retinol as a 9 out of 10 for toxicity!
I believe in not sacrificing your skin or your body's long-term health for short-term fixes. This is the main reason why I started TGS. Everything good can be found in nature and nature is more than enough.

Q5: Why do you love gua sha so much?
Because there is nothing better to help create vital life force energy throughout the face and body. Blocked blood flow throughout the body significantly affects how and when we begin showing signs of aging. If blood flow is blocked, the skin loses its luster, firmness, and radiance causing it to age prematurely. The state of our face is a direct reflection of how well our circulating energy life force “qi” or blood flow is. No matter what you do, if you do not take care of the blood flow system, you cannot permanently change your face. The face is an extension of the whole body and reflects not only what's happening on your face but what is happening in your body & mind. Treating the entire system is key for maximum results.
Results of not taking care of the body and face and neglecting self-care = fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, acne, dull/dry skin, jaw pain, etc.
Cosmetic procedures are quick fixes that need to be constantly repeated because the face will gradually go back to its natural pattern. The key to long-lasting results is to naturally change the pattern of the face and retrain the muscles and skin.
