Facial rolling has been making its rounds in the skincare world, and for good reason. Crystal facial rollers are more than just a trend and are actually a time-honored tool dating back to ancient China. If you’ve ever woken up with puffiness or have looked in the mirror to find a dull complexion (who hasn’t?), then you may want this ancient ritual to your skincare routine. In today's blog, we're exploring the skin benefits of facial rolling, how to use a facial roller, and the very best natural crystal facial rollers!
Benefits of Facial Rolling
Facial rolling can have both short and long term benefits, so adding this ancient ritual into your routine is a win-win! In the short-term, facial rollers de-puff and energize the skin, stimulating circulation and bringing fresh blood to the surface, creating a plump (but not puffy!) youthful complexion. Long-term, you can look forward to diminished fine lines, reduced dark circles, and toning of the muscles in the face and jaw. Not only does facial rolling provide amazing de-puffing properties, it also helps your skincare penetrate deeper into your skin, boosting the effectiveness of your product. Not to mention, it's a relaxing addition to your skincare routine!
How to Use a Facial Roller
Facial rollers are a fun and effective tool to add to your skincare routine and will quickly become your favorite step of your routine! To use a facial roller for maximum benefits, here are a few simple guidelines:
- Relax your face muscles.
- Start from the center of your face and roll upwards and outwards - avoid rolling downwards.
- Use gentle, even pressure.
- Use the smaller end of the roller for the eye area.
How to Fit Facial Rolling Into Your Skincare Routine
Now that you know the basics of facial rolling, let’s talk about how you can fit facial rolling into your skincare routine.
Start with a cleanser like The Giver Ritual Cleanser and Makeup Dissolver - it's always best to work with a clean canvas. Follow up by toning with one of our facial mists, and apply your favorite Intensif serum. You'll want to use your facial roller with an Intensif serum to allow the tool to glide along the skin without tugging. Start rolling - we love our Tiger's Eye Crystal Ritual Facial Roller or our newest addition, the Dalmatian Stone Facial Roller!
You can use a crystal facial roller as part of your morning or nighttime skincare routine - anytime your skin needs a little pick-me-up!
Which facial roller is right for you?
There are a ton of different facial rollers on the market - mostly made of various natural stones and crystals. Different natural stones offer different benefits. Tiger's Eye, for example, is an energizing vitality stone - it's said to contain the energy of the Sun and Earth combined. This Brazilian crystal is thought to reduce feelings of anxiety, promote greater self-confidence, and at the same time, boost the endocrine system and balance your hormones. With it's warm energy, Tiger's Eye has also been used by some to help relieve seasonal affective disorder during the cold, winter months.
The Dalmatian Stone, on the other hand, has been used for centuries for it's calming energy that is thought to help boost the immune system, promote sleep, remove toxins, and offer relief from skin problems and allergic rashes. Dalmatian Stone is a combination of quartz crystal and volcanic feldspar with Dalmatian-like dots of black tourmaline. It's a playful, yet grounding stone that helps you tap into your inner child, while offering deep connection to the Earth.
These natural stones and crystals not only offer their unique energetic properties - they connect you to Nature and look beautiful on your vanity!
