Why I Love Facial Rolling

Obvi you've seen these so very gorgeous facial rollers all over Instagram! And yes, they're just as magical as they look.

My rose quartz roller has become one of my favorite skincare tools. The benefits are amazing and it’s such a fun little skincare and self-care ritual!

Why I Love Facial Rolling

BENEFITS OF FACIAL ROLLING

Rolling is a form of facial massage which helps keep the skin firm and plump. It also aids in lymphatic drainage, which is a major key for overall health and glowing skin!

HOW TO FACIAL ROLL

Obvi we want to lift and firm the skin, so it’s important that you only roll in an upwards and outwards direction. However, when it comes to the sides of the neck where the lymph nodes are, you want to roll downwards to drain them out. If you roll upwards, you’ll end up with a headache.

I facial roll in the morning and evening, just after I’ve put on my serum before I moisturize. I typically roll for about a minute or so, but sometimes more because it’s so relaxing!

WHICH FACIAL ROLLER TO PICK

So the two most popular types are jade and rose quartz! It’s all about picking the crystal based on the energy benefits you want. A rose quartz roller brings unconditional love, compassion, and emotional healing. A jade roller brings balance, abundance, and helps to eliminate negative energy.

Just FYI, it’s worth spending a bit of extra money to get an authentic crystal roller. All of the super cheap rollers on Amazon are faux crystals and won’t bring the good healing vibes! My favorite rollers are from Herbivore Botanicals (jade and rose quartz).

MORE FACIAL ROLLING TIPS

  • Keep your facial roller in the fridge for a soothing, de-puffing effect. Do NOT put it in the freezer or it can crack.
  • Clean your facial roller with a mild soap after each use to avoid bacteria buildup which can lead to breakouts.
  • I always bring mine when I travel! Ask the flight attendant for a cup of ice to chill the roller for some in-flight de-puffing.
  • My roller has a smaller crystal on one side which is great for around the eyes. I defs recommend getting a double-sided facial roller like the ones shown below.
