What does a rose quartz roller do for your face?

A rose quartz roller is a popular beauty tool that has a polished, rounded piece of rose quartz crystal attached for use on the face. Often, facial rollers have crystals on both ends, one with an oval-shaped piece of rose quartz on one end for use on the chin, forehead, and cheeks and a smaller, rounder piece of crystal on the opposite end for the nose, eye, and under-eye areas. 

Are face rollers new?

With the increasing popularity of modern-day face rollers it may seem like facial rollers are new but in reality, they’ve been around for centuries. Evidence has shown that in ancient China, pieces of flat stones/crystals were used on the skin as far back as the 7th century. Crystals were also included in skincare regimens in the middle ages in places like ancient India.

How to use a rose quartz roller

A facial roller should be used after cleansing and toning the skin. Using your face roller with a drop or two of your favorite facial oil or serum is a great way to not just help the roller roll across the skin but will also help your skin to better absorb the product. Though rose quartz is naturally cool, placing the roller on ice or in your refrigerator will enhance its coolness and cause greater benefits for the blood circulation, collagen production, and skin detoxification.

  • The facial roller should be used from the center of the face moving outward towards the edges of the face with gentle strokes.
  • Roll from the chin towards the ears and then from the eyebrows up the forehead until the entire face has been massaged.
  • If your roller has a small end, this should be used gently around the eye area.
  • Do not neglect your neck. Gently glide your roller down the sides of the neck to the center of the clavicle.
