The Benefits of Crystal Facial Rollers and How to Use Them
Celebrities and influencers from Gwyneth Paltrow to Kim Kardashian have raved about about the benefits of crystal facial rollers. The rollers are used to enhance circulation, de-puff skin, and help with lymphatic congestion. They are also incredibly relaxing as they gently massage the face. If you’re intrigued by these pretty beauty tools but aren’t sure where to start, we’ve got some tips to point you in the right direction. To learn how to get the most out crystal facial rollers, we turned to the experts at organic Canadian skincare brand, Province Apothecary.
What are the benefits of facial rolling?
Jade rolling increases blood flow and circulation to the face, soothes the skin, tones the complexion, improves muscle function, firms the appearance of skin, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and scarring.
Province Apothecary’s Jade Facial Roller features one side with a smooth, polished end while the other side has a textured, studded end. How do the different sides of the facial roller contribute to its benefits?
The smooth end cools and calms the look of skin, eases muscle tension, reduces the appearance of puffiness and under-eye bags, and encourages lymphatic function. The studded end activates the deep dermis-layer of skin to boost and maintain elasticity, while gently exfoliating and improving product absorption. (The studded end won’t break or damage the surface of the skin.)
Does the jade stone itself have any special properties?
Jade is a revered healing and protective stone that has a naturally low temperature.
What are the proper steps for facial rolling? Is there a certain technique that will help get the best results?
We recommend jade rolling at the end of your skincare routine, after you've cleansed your skin and prepped it with toner and serum. Following serum, gently massage the skin with our Natural Facelift Ritual and finish massaging in your serum with our Jade Roller Ritual.
Are there any Province Apothecary products that you recommend to use with the facial roller?
We recommend prepping the skin with our Rejuvenating + Hydrating Face Serum or our Clear Skin Advanced Face Serum, and following with our Dual Action Jade Roller to maximize product absorption! Ensure there is still serum on the skin so it is not dragged or pulled when using the roller.
