A Rose Quartz roller is an effective way to invigorate and nourish the skin – both inside + out. It helps de-puff, drain and detox the skin while increasing circulation and improving tone. This crystal beauty tool is also a great way to boost the absorption of serums and face oils into the skin, making it the ideal addition to any skincare ritual. It also promotes a sense of relaxation and reduces anxiety by evoking the same benefits as receiving a facial massage.
A rose quartz roller consists of a polished stone that looks like a wand with two different types of rollers on each side – one is bigger and more elongated for larger surfaces, the other is rounder to get into smaller areas and natural dips and contours of the face. You simply roll it over the skin in a specific pattern to stimulate and promote blood flow, lymphatic drainage and de-puffing, while improving tone and enhancing the effectiveness of your favorite face oil or serum.
The roller works in a similar manner to a jade roller, which has been around for a while and was made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle site ‘Goop’, before becoming an integral part of many millennials’ daily skincare routines. Both the jade and rose quartz rollers are said to de-puff the face, drain excess fluid, encourage blood circulation and boost natural collagen.
It’s also believed that this tool can improve skin elasticity, minimize fine lines and wrinkles and help achieve an irresistible glow. It is a great option to use during the morning or evening, before applying makeup or going to bed. Some people even use it to relieve sinus congestion. This is achieved by massaging the cheeks and forehead area, which in turn encourages fluid buildup to be released from the sinus cavities.
This is because the rollers stimulate and activate the lymph nodes, which are responsible for removing toxins from the body. When the lymph nodes drain effectively, toxins and excess fluid are pushed out of the skin, leaving it looking more refreshed and awake. It is also believed that the rose quartz roller helps to get rid of puffy eyes by helping to drain and eliminate the toxins around the eye area, which can leave your eyes looking baggy, tired or swollen.
It’s also a good idea to use your roller on a regular basis, which is typically at least once a day (before using any products or putting on any makeup). You can also try to roll your skin a few times a week if that’s more convenient for you. It’s also important to clean your roller regularly, ideally with the cleanser of your choice, and then lay it flat to dry. It’s also recommended to use a hydrating moisturizer or face oil while rolling your skin to keep it moisturized and protected.
