You’ve no doubt seen crystal facial rollers trending on social media or making the rounds in your favorite publications, but do they live up to the hype? It’s no secret that many cultures have believed precious stones and crystals like rose quartz can have healing and relaxing effects on the body and soul, so seeing them make a bold appearance as a facial roller is intriguing! Let’s dive in and see if rose quartz facial rollers are a hero or just hype.
A Short History on the Healing Crystal
For thousands of years, many cultures around the world have believed that crystals have a variety of metaphysical healing energies. These energies can aid in spiritual healing, improving moods, promoting better relationships, and so much more.
Some of the most commonly used precious stones include jade, opal, amethyst, citrine, and our favorite, rose quartz. Each stone or crystal imparts its own unique energies onto people that work with them.
For example, if you’re looking for love, need emotional healing, or simply want to feel at peace with things around you, rose quartz is said to be able to help with that. You can use this beautiful crystal to help replace negative and toxic emotions with those that are more pure and soothing overall.
While there are no scientific studies that can definitively prove there is a connection between precious stones and physical healing properties, there are ancient civilizations all the way up to modern metaphysicians that strongly believe in the anecdotal evidence tying them to different types of healing for the body, mind, and soul.
For many individuals, there is no substitute for a strong healing crystal. And when you compare the benefits offered by a wide range of precious and semi-precious stones and crystals, rose quartz comes out on top in offering the most and largest range of benefits. It’s no accident that rose quartz is our favorite facial roller to consider using today!
Using Facial Rollers in your Daily Routine
If you find yourself intrigued by the history and want to give them a try yourself, facial rollers are a great addition to your daily skincare routine. In fact, you won’t even have to change anything up right now! Simply slide them in to massage your face when you apply your favorite serum each morning.
If you aren’t using a serum in your daily skincare routine, now is the perfect time to consider it! IMAGE Skincare has a wide range of serums for facial rollers that work for all skin types. Want to learn more about serums and how they can work for you, with or without a facial roller? Head over to our Serums 101 page to learn more!
Selecting the right serums for facial rollers is not a difficult task. Our serum collection covers a wide range of skin types, and can help target different trouble areas you may have.
Fighting the Signs of Aging and Gravity
If you’re dealing with the effects of aging and find yourself noticing more wrinkles and less skin elasticity, using our VITAL C hydrating anti-aging serum with a rose quartz facial roller is a great combination. You’ll want to apply the serum in a small dot directly to the roller, and then use the roller in an upward motion around your face to help your skin fight against gravity. You can use a single roller just as effectively as two rollers, but might feel much more relaxing effects when using two together.
Tip! Place your rose quartz roller in the refrigerator overnight and use it during your morning serum application. The cold temperature of the crystal can help reduce puffiness around your cheeks, eyes and neck!
Roll Away Stress and Irritation
If you find your skin feeling rough and worn out from the daily bombardment of environmental toxins, consider using a small dab of our ORMEDIC balancing antioxidant serum on your crystal roller. This is a great way to help restore antioxidants to your skin and help reduce the signs of dehydration and irritation.
Tip! Place your rose quartz crystal roller in either the sunlight or moonlight to “recharge” the energy in the crystal. Placing the crystal in the sunlight can also help “cleanse” it of any bad vibes it may have gathered over time.
