By now, you've probably seen or heard about gemstone facial rollers.  These dual-ended facial massagers help to release facial tension, help with the absorption of oils and serums, and according to crystal healers have the ability to ward of stress and bad energy.  Whether you believe the claims or not, gemstone rollers are a fun beauty trend to try.

The first step to trying a facial roller is choosing your gemstone.  There are many different options to choose from.  We recommend trying jade or rose quartz.  If you opt for a jade roller,  you'll see a reduction in inflammation and water retention. This stone is known for its healing properties and is great for those with easily irritated skin.

If rose quartz seems more like your style, you'll notice the smoothing out of your fine lines and wrinkles.  Rose quartz is known for reducing the signs of stress and promoting circulation.

Gemstone rollers are super easy to use.  Simply apply your favorite oil or serum to your skin and roll upward along the contours of your face.  You can even chill your roller in the fridge, before you use it on your face.  The cooler temp will help to reduce puffiness.

Once your skincare is massaged in, you can complete the rest of your daily routine.

We hope you enjoyed this article.  Gemstone rollers can be found at Sephora, Amazon, or other online retailers.

Happy Rolling Friends!
