Dating back to the early 17th century during the Qing Dynasty, face rolling—specifically with a jade gemstone—has been used as a Chinese beauty ritual for centuries.

Now, these tools re-emerged as the latest skincare trend. Face rollers have become essential for many skincare gurus. But what are face rollers, exactly?

Typically made from green jade or rose quartz, they gently massage the face and stimulate the lymphatic system.

By incorporating the simple act of face rolling into your routine, you can achieve a luminous glow and enhance your skin’s best features. Here’s how.

1. Face rolling helps detoxify the skin.

By stimulating lymphatic drainage, facial rolling can 1) help detoxify the body; 2) promote lymphatic drainage; and 3) boost your skin’s natural glow. How’s that for a skincare trifecta?

Even if you can only set aside a few minutes each day, your skin will thank you. Want even better results? Gently massage your face with an oil or serum first, as it can help drain excess fluid.

2. Naturally cold gemstones help contour and define the skin.

If you use a naturally cold gemstone, like rose quartz, face rolling will cool and soothe the skin on contact. In turn, it can help define your skin by reducing puffiness and tightening pores.

Rose quartz not only helps to contour the face, but it can also help boost self-esteem. The gemstone is known for its powerful healing benefits, including decreased tension and increased circulation. For the ultimate self-love experience, pair your rose quartz face roller with a rose quartz face mask.

Don’t have a naturally cold rose quartz face roller? No problem, you can just store yours in the refrigerator instead!

3. Face rollers help firm the skin.

According to a 2017 study, regular face rolling may help to tighten and firm the skin. Researchers found that gently massaging the skin for just one minute, twice a day helped to increase protein levels in skin tissue.

At the end of the study, the researchers concluded that these increased protein levels helped to firm the skin and reduce the appearance of visible wrinkles.

Even better, positive results were noticed after only ten days!

4. Face rolling helps brighten the skin.

Face rolling can help stimulate blood flow to your face, which makes your skin appear brighter. Increased blood flow also provides more oxygen and is capable of carrying away toxins, including free radicals.

To maximize your skincare benefits, take the time to choose the right gemstone roller. Like selecting a piece of jewelry that best suits the vibe of the day, gemstone rollers match the changing needs of your skin.

While a black obsidian roller can help you ground yourself and achieve balance, a real jade roller can help manifest love, wisdom, and prosperity.

5. Gemstone rollers effectively distribute skincare products.

Many people use gemstone rollers over hydrogel masks to help the ingredients penetrate the skin more deeply. Even if you’re not using a face mask, you can use a gemstone roller as the final step in your skincare routine to evenly distribute products.

For example, try using your gemstone roller with your favorite serum or moisturizer to help the tool glide across your skin.
