http://lkntraining.com/QScdZ/ I am not someone who falls for every skin care trend or everything that is gaining limelight on Instagram. I love my facial oils and face masks more than anything else and pretty much stick to them for healthy skin. But for quite a long time, I had been very attracted towards a facial massage tool that is all over Instagram these days. If you follow wellness and skincare bloggers, you know that the obsession of social media with JADE OR ROSE QUARTZ ROLLERS is REAL. I did try a lot to get my hands on this beautiful tool made of real gemstones but found it too hard to trust anyone for this precious tool. I did see a lot of vendors on Amazon selling Jade rollers but the reviews were quite disappointing. Finally, I met Dr.Poonam through my course at Formula Botanica who is a certified crystal healer and obviously I had to buy this roller from her as soon as she posted about them.
She asked us to choose the roller that attracted us. I have always had my eyes on Rose Quartz. I feel so calmed down whenever I look at anything made out of rose quartz. This beautiful pink crystal has a powerful energy that resonates within both the heart chakra and the higher heart chakra, the area related to compassion.
WHAT IS FACIAL ROLLER?
It is a paint roller–type tool for the face made from solid stones that have been said to decrease puffiness and under-eye circles, and even minimize the look of fine lines. Originally, Jade rollers were used by Chinese for centuries because of their healing abilities to warm the skin.
BENEFITS OF FACIAL ROLLING
- better absorption of oils/balms/serums
- calms down & soothes skin irritation
- prevents fine lines/wrinkles
- increases blood circulation (face turns a little red)
- reduces puffiness on the face and under eyes
- lastly, it feels amazing and so soothing to the mind.
It is extremely easy to use. You start on one side of the face at the jawline and gently move the roller in an upward direction toward the ear. Next, place it on the forehead and gently roll it toward the ear. Move it over the lips and chin towards the neck. Switch to the other side of the face. I also like to use it on my neck in an upward motion towards the chin. If you are still having difficulty using them, you can follow the steps shown in this video.
Personally, I love doing this every night post my cleansing routine. I just dab few drops of Organic Peach Oil on my face and neck (you can use any oil/serum/balm you prefer. I find the scent of peach kernel oil grounding and soothing) and get it rolling. I prefer using my roller after it has been in the fridge for half an hour..fully chilled.
I’ve now used it consistently for a few weeks and I simply cannot get enough of it. It’s such a great skincare treat for the face. I absolutely love the feeling of the natural rose quartz stone gliding softly over my face. There’s a coolness sensation first, but gradually you feel your skin getting warm. I have noticed that facial rollers aid in the better absorption of skincare products and make your skin look toned up and smooth. It is such a relaxing and soothing experience, I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed if you give it a try.
You can get this roller from Happiness Unlimited.
