What’s all the fuss about Rose Quartz?
Rose Quartz is considered a healing crystal and is the stone of love and romance. It’s believed to be beneficial to physical health by increasing blood circulation.
Crystals have been used by various cultures for thousands of years and their uses include healing, meditation, protection, and creative inspiration. It’s believed that Egyptian women used Rose Quartz face masks to clear their complexions and prevent the signs of ageing.
Today, Rose Quartz is used in a variety of jewellery, beauty tools and interior decoration.
Rose Quartz is believed to boost feelings of peace, calm and self-love, so it makes sense that there are a variety of beauty tools made from the crystal!
When used in the form of a Facial Roller or Gua Sha, it is thought to promote a clearer complexion, accelerate healing and reduce puffiness and the appearance of fine lines.
The Rose Quartz Facial Roller typically comes with dual ends, with the larger end being used all over the face and the smaller end being used around the eye area. The cooling effect of the Rose Quartz on your face is known to help calm skin and reduce the look of redness.
The Gua Sha (pronounced Gwa Sha) is predominantly used for facial massage and the unique shape allows you to use the tool to target different areas of the face. It can help by stimulating the dermis to support elastin production and collagen and releasing tension to relax the muscles of your face.
It’s thought that the use of a Rose Quartz Facial Roller or Gua Sha can help improve the overall tone and elasticity of your skin because of the way it massages your skin as it moves over your face, which will also help with better product absorption.
Skincare professionals will often apply a serum to your skin using a Facial Roller or Gua Sha, rather than using their fingers to massage it in.
Here are some of our top tips for using your Rose Quartz Facial Roller or Gua Sha;
- Pop your Facial Roller or Gua Sha in the fridge overnight and use in the morning to help with puffiness.
- “Recharge” the crystal tools in moonlight by placing them in an area where the moonlight will touch it directly (many believe this helps the crystal maintain it’s energy)
- Use your Facial Roller or Gua Sha to massage in facial serums or moisturiser.
- Be sure to wash your Facial Roller or Gua Sha after each use to prevent transferring bacteria to your skin.
