FACIAL MASSAGE!! This is something I have been loving since August 2019. I started watching lots of tutorials about facial massage, rolling techniques & gua sha. I used my hands & pieces of ice to mimic the movements I learned & I got the same results I would've if I was using fancy tools. I finally invested in THIS Rose Quartz Roller & Gua Sha Tool. A lot of you had questions about it when I posted about it on Instagram so I thought I would shed some light on how AMAZING these little tools are.
First matter of business, Rose Quartz or Jade?? These are generally the two stones that these types of rollers are made from. I prefer rose quartz to jade because of the energy it has. Rose quartz emits strong vibrations of unconditional love, joy & emotional healing. Both rose quartz & jade have grounding properties but I am drawn to the benefits of rose quartz more. Plus it's PINK & looks so cute on my vanity!
Now that you have your roller, what are the actual benefits?? I love using this tool to help me with lympatic drainage. When you are rolling or using a gua sha tool you can move the fluid in your face outward & down your neck to reduce puffiness. It seriously amazes me every time!! I start around my eyes, move down my cheeks & then pull the fluid down my neck. Using this roller on your neck is SERIOUSLY the best feeling. I love rolling my neck more than anything else. Keep your tool in the fridge to increase the effect while trying to depuff your face.
Another benefit to rolling is that it stimulates collagen & blood flow to give you an amazing glow!! I am always searching for ways to help my body produce more collagen. From supplements, to bone broth, to chemical peels & micro needling. Rolling is just one more way to reduce aging & give my skin an amazing glow from the inside out. You do not have to use a lot of pressure to get the desired results.
I did not learn all this information on my own so I want to share my 3 favorite tutorials that helped me learn & love these tools:
