Face Rollers: Benefits, Tips & Why You Need Them In Your Skincare
When it comes to facial skincare trends then you might have seen the latest trend on Instagram and in magazines; that is a facial roller with a roller made out of crystal.
These look like a miniature paint roller with one side being deservedly more oval. The broader side is for targeting the larger flatter areas of the face whilst the smaller more pointed end is for those target smaller zones like eyes and mouth.
How Does It Work?
The roller is used to target those pesky lymph zones and drain them of their water retention. This helps to reduce inflammation and stimulate oxygen flow. This gives you a brighter, more youthful complexion.
So think of it as like getting a facial. Ready to invigorate you for the day ahead or to relax you at the end of a hectic day, you can use face rollers either before or after your skincare routine.
When it comes to selecting the stone of your roller there are several different choices, and each is said to have different benefits for your skin. All are equally good as long as they made of pure crystal. You want to use them gently on the skin, the idea being to massage rather than scrub.
Here are some of the different benefits that you can get from each type of stone:
The ultimate in beauty crystals and also known as the Stone of Venus.
Rose Quartz clears and opens the heart whilst giving you a deep healing and clear complexion. This stone is known as an ‘emotional healer’ and will cleanse your skin as it decreases stress and removes toxins from the body. Use it daily to soften fine lines and reveal a glowing complexion.
Your go-to for wrinkles and loose skin. It helps to promote skin elasticity as well as new cell growth. It is highly calming and cooling (pop it in the fridge for a couple of hours before you use it for the ultimate in cooling boost).
Also known as White Lotus, this is a great roller for boosting energy. The natural crystals have a powerful effect on healing damaged skin. It also has a great cooling effect so works well on sun-damaged skin. This will help improve circulation and activate drainage for the lymph nodes leaving your skin highly refreshed.
This is the most potent of energies blending fire, water and earth in one crystal. Consistent use will disrupt imbalances in the skin and bring them to the surface so that they can be released.
