READY TO ROLL
Do you wake up in the morning with puffy skin, dark circles and pronounced fine lines and wrinkles? Unless you’re on holidays or are enjoying life at a yoga retreat, it’s a common sight for most people who are living in the everyday hustle of life.
So what if we told you that we found a tool that decreases said puffiness, dark circles and fine lines? It would be a total game changer, right? No longer would you have to wake up and coat concealer under your eyes or pat your face with your hands until your skin woke up. This tool, that is super easy to use by the way, can have your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated in only a couple of minutes!
That’s where a rose quartz roller comes in. Rose Quartz has been used for centuries and Ancient Egyptians believed it had anti-ageing properties that prevented wrinkles and fine lines. Rumour has it, Isis, the Egyptian Goddess of Life, used to rub rose quartz in an upward motion around her eyes to retain her beauty and youthful-looking skin (and who are we to argue with a Goddess?).
In today’s world, rose quartz is the crystal of not just love but specifically unconditional love, especially towards oneself so we think it’s fitting that using a rose quartz roller can be a large part of a self-care routine. Rose quartz is one of the most well known crystals and that’s not just because it looks beautiful. Rose quartz is believed to help to raise self-esteem, restore confidence, lower stress and balance emotions. As the crystal of love, it can also help heal the heart from anger, disappointment, lost love, resentment and jealousy.
The purpose of face rolling is to massage your face. It’s common to get back, neck, shoulders and full body massages to relieve aches and pains and to release tension so considering how often we use our facial muscles (from all the talking and eating we do, ha!), it’s really no surprise that our face should also be privy to regular massages. It functions as a tool to clear away toxins and impurities while increasing blood flow and stimulating circulation. The movement of increased circulation brings more oxygen to the skin’s surface, which loosens up spots where wrinkles are born. The result? You’re left with plump, firm skin and a glowing and healthy looking complexion.
The best way to store your rose quartz roller is in the fridge because upon using it, the cool stone will help to alleviate puffiness, leaving you with ‘I just had ten hours of sleep’ skin (even if you had less)!
We put the rose quartz roller to the test and Olivia in our team has been using one for the past few weeks. Liv has been using hers morning and night for different reasons. She has been using it at night, after applying her serums and moisturisers, to lock in the products she’s used. The movement from the roller allows the skin to absorb the benefits from the serums and moisturiser. In the morning, Liv’s been using it to decrease puffiness (especially around her eyes) and to stimulate circulation and blood flow after a long sleep. Her verdict? She says “I’ve loved adding this simple step into my morning and night routine. It’s simple, it’s relaxing and I feel like it’s made a difference to my skin. I’m quite prone to a puffy face in the morning and this has made a noticeable and fast difference.”
It also comes in handy when we’ve been on an airplane and the pressure from the cabin has dried out our skin. When we’re just about to land, we do a quick once-over with our rose quartz roller and it leaves us feeling relaxed and ready to go!
Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest, and in this case, it’s true; the simplest beauty tools are the best.
