Ready to optimize your beauty routine? All it takes is combining the skin-supporting powers of two popular beauty tools: gemstone rollers and face masks. Let’s talk about how you can use them at the same time.
Giving yourself a massage during your face mask is a great way to rejuvenate your skin and indulge in a luxurious spa experience. Gemstone rollers can also help maximize the benefits of your face mask, allowing collagen to penetrate more deeply into your skin and work its magic.
Here’s how to start using a face roller to nourish your skin from within.
How Do You Use a Gemstone Roller?
To reap the benefits of a gemstone roller, roll outwards and slightly upwards after applying your face mask. Most gemstone rollers are two-sided, with one bigger and one smaller roller. Use the smaller side for the more delicate parts of your face, such as your under-eye area.
When you roll over your face mask with a gemstone roller, it not only boosts circulation but also helps your skin better absorb the ingredients from your collagen mask. This deeper penetration of proven active ingredients provides a glow and radiance that’s unmatched.
After removing your face mask, you can also use your roller to gently massage any excess serum into the skin. PRO TIP: place it in the refrigerator prior to using for a truly exhilarating experience!
How Can You Choose the Right Gemstone?
From rose quartz to amethyst, you have a few different options for choosing a gemstone roller. The best way to make your decision is to understand the powers of each one—and match them to your skin’s unique needs. Each gemstone will have skin and spirit benefits to support healing from the inside out.
Some common gemstones used for facial rollers include:
Jade: Jade represents health, longevity, and prosperity. A jade face roller can help draw out negative energy, helping to reduce redness and inflammation.
Amethyst: Amethyst is thought to be full of negative ions, which attract positive energy. An amethyst face roller can help reduce stress, leaving you with a brighter, more refreshed complexion.
Rose quartz: Rose quartz helps open the heart chakra. It carries a small charge that helps awaken the skin.
Still not sure which is best for you? Take a deep breath and let your intuition guide you.
Face Roller vs. Gua Sha
If you have a gemstone roller and a gua sha tool on hand, you’re probably wondering which option is better for your face mask routine.
Gemstone rollers are typically used as a convenient tool to stimulate blood flow, promote drainage, and combat puffiness. In addition, they can help the serum penetrate more deeply, allowing your skin to absorb the active ingredients and nutrients in your face mask.
By comparison, gua sha tools are ideal if you want to spend more time pampering your skin while going a bit deeper. A gua sha tool helps release muscle tension and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Both tools can help you make the most out of your skincare routine—it’s all about choosing the option that works best (and feels best) for you.
