Genuine Rose Quartz Crystal Face Roller
Nausheen Qureshi, biochemist founder of skincare brand Elequra, thinks manual tools made from crystals like rose quartz are more beneficial for the skin than electronic alternatives, which can often be costly. "Used daily as part of a regular skincare regime, I believe crystals like rose quartz are more effective," Nausheen – who recommends Elequra's Rose Quartz Sculpting Tool– tells R29. Kim elaborates: "Crystal face rollers made from these stones are useful to help the ingredients of creams and moisturisers to be absorbed into the face and neck," she says, and if you think about it, a lot of product goes to waste on our hands.
As well as channelling products into the skin more efficiently, whole body facialist Fiona Harlowe says that crystal face rollers are brilliant at facial massage. "They are super simple to use and have an immediate impact on the fluid tissues of the face, including blood and lymph. By rolling them across your cheeks, chin and forehead, you'll slowly open up pathways, and improve lymphatic flow, which reduces puffiness and inflammation. The best way to use a crystal facial roller is always at room temperature – there's no need to cool it as it will already feel cool to the skin. Using light pressure, always start on the décolleté and neck as this opens up pathways and creates flow for effective drainage. Simply glide your chosen crystal roller from the centre of the face out to the side and down the neck. Work all the way up the neck and face and then back down and return to areas where there is any superficial facial tension, such as the jaw." Refinery.com
