How to use face rollers and gua sha tools for your face

·

Sculpt your visage with these crystal skincare instruments.

Multitasking tools such as facial rollers and gua sha sculpting boards promise a multitude of skin-enhancing benefits. They may be relatively new in the world of Western wellness but before you pick up a sculpting board, it’s important to know that the therapy finds its roots in Chinese medicine, having been practiced for centuries. Below, we examine how to use crystal face rollers and gua sha sculpting boards should you be in need of some at-home spa time.

What are the benefits of face rollers?

Facial rollers are designed to de-puff, encourage lymphatic drainage and boost circulation. The cooling effects of the crystal assists in de-puffing (experts recommend storing these tools in the fridge) while also giving skin a much needed refresh. These utensils also help to massage serums and oils into the face while providing relief for muscle tension. Try Theseeke’s Rose Quartz Crystal Face Roller.

How do I use a crystal face roller?

  1. The number one rule when using a facial roller is to be gentle. The skin on your face is delicate and should be handled with care.
  2. Next, it’s important to remember to use with an oil or serum to ensure your tool glides.
  3. Begin at the neck with the large side of your roller and sweep downward.
  4. Move on to your face, starting with the jaw working up to your forehead. Always sweeping outward towards the ears.
  5. When you reach the under eye area, switch to the smaller roller. It is safe to sweep the roller across closed eyes too.
  6. Repeat each sweep three times. 

How often should I use a crystal face roller?

It’s safe to use your crystal facial roller once a day, for five to 10 minutes.

What are the benefits of gua sha tools?

Gua sha has been practiced for generations by Chinese medicine practitioners, who use the therapy to treat fevers, heat stroke and relieve muscle pain or tension. The benefits of gua sha are similar to those of facial rollers: de-puff, encourage lymphatic drainage, boost circulation and help massage in product.

How do I use a gua sha facial sculpting board?

  1. Gua sha tools come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and have varying edges or points to allow you to reach every contour of your face.
  2. Use with an oil or serum to ensure your tool glides.
  3. To start, hold the gua sha tool almost flat against the skin. Never perpendicular or at a 90° angle.
  4. Begin at the neck and sweep upward.
  5. Move on to your face, starting with the jaw working up to your forehead. Always sweeping outward towards the ears.
  6. At the nose, brow bone and eyes you may want to use the smaller side of the board or adjust the angle to reach trickier areas.
  7. Always be gentle and repeat each sweep three to five times.

How often should I use a gua sha facial sculpting board?

It’s safe to use your gua sha crystal sculpting board once a day, for five to 10 minutes.
