HOW TO USE A FACE ROLLER (DIY FACIAL)
A face roller offers an effortless and gentle way to perform a facial on yourself, rolling this smooth crystal firmly (but gently) across the skin of your face encourages more blood flow throughout the face, which is said help release stagnant energy and toxins, and in turn increases elasticity of the skin and rejuvenates the skin. This creates a more radiant complexion! Face rolling is a more gentle approach to traditional Gua Sha, in Gua Sha the skin is gently scraped in order to increase circulation of blood flow, whereas the face roller is more gentle as no scraping is involved. It is a really enjoyable process, quite calming and soothing to the senses!
You can perform face rolling with or without a face oil applied. I recommend cleansing your face, and making sure it is hydrated, if it is not hydrated then I do recommend applying a natural face oil. I have been using Ritual Oil’s Blue Lotus Infused Moringa Oil, about 3 - 4 drops on my face and 2 on my neck. It is also a good idea to rinse your roller under hot water once finished and allow it to completely air dry before storing. I place my crystal tools out in the sun or moonlight every month or two in order to cleanse and re-charge them energetically.
Using your roller, with a firm pressure applied, but gentle approach, you can choose to either free flow - move the face roller across your face as your intuition guides you to, choosing the small or large end based on the best fitting and feeling of each section of your face, alternatively you can follow the diagram below, which is the same method used in Gua Sha, however you will be gently rolling, instead of gently scraping. When I say gently, I mean so it feels good, and no pain is experienced, I enjoy a firm pressure, however it should feel good, so your level of pressure will be unique based on your sensitivity.
