Hey there BKFam,
At some point, we all have seen many of our favorite beauty gurus raving about many different types of beauty tools. But lately, Facial rollers and Gua sha stone’s hypes are really getting big. Is the hype really worth it? 🤔
So today, we are going to solve all of your doubts regarding the facial rollers and Gua sha stones. But what are Facial Rollers and Gua sha stones? The Facial Rollers and Gua sha stones are basically made of crystals 💎 like nephrite or jadeite. The nephrite and jadeite have a lot of skin benefits like improving blood circulations, stimulating lymphatic drainage, reducing puffiness, etc.
The history of the Facial roller brings us straight to ancient china 🐉. Jade was something that was widely used in the 17th century as it is believed that it can give eternal youth and was known as ‘stone from heaven’ for it's amazing properties like relaxing the skin, brightening the skin, and improving blood circulations 🤩.
The Facial roller is now making a comeback along with a scraping tool named Gua sha stone which is mainly used for contouring the face and to improve blood circulation 👍🏻. Jade is also something that was widely used by Egyptians and Mayans for their skin benefits.
There are different types of facial rollers. Jade is one of the widely used stones found in facial rollers. Other stones used in facial rollers are rose quartz and amethyst. Obsidian and metals are also used to make facial rollers for their skin benefits 😇. The jade and metals are naturally cool materials so they don't need to be stored in the fridge.where as the rose quartz needs to be stored in the fridge if you need to use it for more than a minute or two.
One other specialty of rose quartz is that it can hold it's temperature (both hot and cold) for a longer period of time. And rose quartz is more smooth than jade so be careful when you use it as it may break if you drop it 😮. Although jade might not be smooth, the friction from the jade helps with contouring your face.
All these stones have so many benefits like Reducing puffiness of the face, promotes lymphatic drainage, relieves facial and jaw tension, boosts circulation to encourage glowing skin but what makes black obsidian special is that it can naturally retain warmth and this is amazing for relaxing the skin and for better product absorption.
If you want to get maximum benefits from any product like serums, facial oils, sheet masks, then the best way to improve product absorption is to use a facial roller. Facial rollers help to maximize blood flow and deliver the benefits of the product all across the face ✨.
Step 1: Use a serum or facial oil all over your face and neck (optional).
Step 2: Massage your face with the facial roller that’s kept in a fridge( for a cooling effect).
Step 3: Start by massaging your jawbone using the longer part of the roller, use an up and down motion. Then massage your cheeks using an upward motion this can help you to prevent sagging. Then use sideways motion to massage your neck.
Step 4: Next up use the smaller part of the roller to massage your under-eye really gently in sideways and use up and down motion to massage the inner corner portion of the eye.
Step 5: Next up use the longer part of the facial roller to massage your neck in a sweeping up and down roll motion.
Step 6: Lastly massage your clavicle area in an up and down roll motion.
This method is really beneficial to promote lymphatic drainage and improve blood circulation. Using Gua sha stones is pretty much similar to facial rollers they not only improve blood circulation but they also help to contour and define the skin and relieve tension 💁🏻♀️. Now to get the maximum benefits from the gua sha stones follow these steps:
Step 1: When using a Gua Sha stone it is important to use a facial oil really well all over your face and neck.
Step 2: Start with scraping the stone across and down your face along the jawbone, cheekbone, and forehead.
Step 3: When massaging the Jaw bone use the slight curve on the stone and move it upwards for a contoured jawline.
Step 4: While massaging your face with Gua sha stones only massage upwards not downwards to prevent fine lines and sagginess.
Step 5: You can also use the Gua sha stone to massage your neck and clavicle area.
Step 6: Don’t forget to repeat each movement three times.
These are why using a facial roller or a Gua sha stone can spice up your skincare games 🤩.
Since the facial rollers and gua sha stones trends are really in lately, you can find a lot of fake jade and rose quartz facial rollers and gua sha stones in the market.
But how do you differentiate between the original and fake ? To identify real and fake jade the best way is to try and make a scratch, the original jade is scratch-resistant so that way you can easily identify the real jade.
The real jade varies from dark forest green to a milky light green with white swirls and most of the time they contain imperfections like the black dots, So if there are no black dots or white swirls then probably it is just a dyed stone 🙄.
Now to identify real rose quartz what you can do is look for air bubbles, if it contains any bubble then it is not authentic quartz. And real quartz is really cooler to the touch than glass or plastic so you can easily differentiate real and fake quartz.
Why should you avoid fake facial rollers? If you find any facial rollers in the market for extremely cheap then most likely that crystal is fake. Usually, the fake facial rollers are made of plastic, glass, dyed marble, or harmful materials so they can do more harm than good.
Overall I believe the hype of facial rollers and gua sha stones are really worth it 😊. Using facial rollers and gua sha stones can really improve your skin texture and can improve the performance of your skincare products as well.
