The calming and reassuring aspects of Rose Quartz are very helpful during a crisis. These properties even help prevent nightmares and night terrors.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Many like to keep crystal rollers in the refrigerator so that it is cold and refreshing when you use it. I use mine at night after I have washed my face and applied my nighttime facial oil. I simply wash my face, apply my oil, and roll away all over my skin. It is said that not only does this help with circulation, but it also helps your oils or serums to reach a deeper level of your skin, allowing the product to really penetrate and do its job. Jade rolling works best if you think of it as a massage tool: Roll back and forth, up and down and side to side, working around your facial contours and adding a little more pressure with the upwards motions. Crystal rolling can help with lymph drainage if you start rolling from your nose as the central starting point, then rolling outward to the sides of your face. First start in the middle of your chin and roll towards your ears. Then, start at the top of your neck and roll down towards your chest. This rolling path is said to help your skin detoxify.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING ONE?
The most well-known benefits of using a crystal roller include reducing inflammation and puffiness of the skin, reducing the appearance of under eye circles (especially if your roller is cold), stimulating the lymphatic system and blood circulation, brightening complexion, tightening pores, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, and allowing skincare products to penetrate more deeply. Aside from these benefits, I also find it a lovely way to relax and get in “bedtime mode” after my skincare routine in the evening. After using my roller, my skin always feels cool and calm and ready for bed.
