Give your face the royal treatment
The ancient Emperors of China had a secret for flawless skin, and it has only recently been rediscovered: jade rolling. Dating to the 7th Century, this simple but highly effective beauty technique stimulates lymphatic and blood circulation to help relieve puffiness + smooth fine lines + tone muscles. It is also said to enhance the effectiveness of skin care products by ensuring better absorption.
Think of jade rolling as a refreshing and healthy massage for your face. Make it part of your twice-daily skin care ritual for visible results (we call it the goddess glow!) within a week. Because our rollers are made of the highest quality natural stone, each is unique with slight variations in color.
Jade - Known as the stone of eternal youth, jade is the go-to gemstone for facial treatments. It is reputed to reduce tension in facial muscles, making it excellent for preventing and smoothing wrinkles. While all crystals promote harmony between the mind, body and spirit, jade is a superstar thanks to its powerful connection to the heart chakra and its varying shades of green. Jade supports physical health and healing; it especially benefits the kidneys, liver and spleen. Its properties boost the removal of toxins and excess fluids while balancing the ratio of water to salt and the body’s pH.
Rose Quartz - Cleopatra is said to have bathed with chunks of rose quartz, harnessing the healing and anti-aging benefits of this mineral rock. Also known as the love stone, rose quartz is associated with the heart and the ability to instill an unconditional love for oneself (which does wonders for natural beauty!). Rose quartz emits a soothing vibration, helping to relieve the facial tension that makes us appear older. It also helps reduce inflammation and supports the renewal of skin cells. Rose quartz facial rollers benefit circulation, too, bringing oxygen to skin, which improves tone, luster and glow.
Obsidian - This glossy, super-smooth crystal is actually lava glass formed by a volcanic eruption. Valued as a powerful healing stone, obsidian is associated with circulatory and digestive health, wound healing and detoxification. Many believe that it also helps relieve pain, relaxes muscles and promotes emotional well-being. For skin, obsidian has the potential to minimize pores, prevent breakouts, soften and hydrate. A great roller for those prone to acne.
Opal - Opal, the eye stone, is like lightning in a rainbow, flashing its brilliant “fire” with even the slightest movement. Its beauty inspires love and hope, innocence and purity, luck and happiness. The ancients, who considered it the most bewitching of gems, wore it to strengthen sight and heal eye diseases. Opals promote a sense of calm, easing stress and depression. In addition to its benefits for vision, the opal is said to promote healthy hair, nails and skin. It also may help balance the body’s water content, overcoming dehydration or alleviating water retention. If you suffer from periorbital edema (commonly known as "puffy eyes") caused by fluid buildup, this roller is for you!
Tips: Use your roller on clean skin. Cleanse your face, then apply Gypsy Cream moisturizer or Looking Sharp facial serum. Roll for about 5 minutes, both morning and night. Be sure to roll in an upward motion to help lift the skin and facial muscles. Repeat each motion 3 - 10 times before moving to the next motion. When you finish rolling, your skin may be slightly pink from the increased circulation, but it should feel oh-so luxurious. For an added cooling sensation, pop your roller in the refrigerator or put it on ice several minutes before you use it.
