Benefits of Rose Quartz Roller and Gua Sha Facial Massage

The face is like a health monitor. It hints to what you're feeling and how healthy you are inside. Wrinkles, clenched jaw muscles, dark eye circles, dull skin, pimples and furrowed brows are all signs of emotional and physical health issues we're dealing with. While over the counter creams and lotions might help you clear these skin problems temporarily, they do not provide a permanent solution. One way to get rid of recurring skin issues and restore beauty is by investing in natural beauty techniques.  The beauty world has taken a trip down the memory lane and there is a huge focus on traditional beauty rituals which have been tried and tested by time.

Rose Quartz Roller and Gua Sha Facial Massage are two of the most popular traditional beauty tools that have passed the test. These two, enhance beauty by working from the inside to the outside which means they eliminate problems from the roots. In this article we tell you why every woman needs to invest in these two gems;

Rose Quartz Roller. What is it?

A rose quartz roller is a traditional face roller made of rose quartz stones, used to massage the face. The roller has two ends separated by a thin stick-like stone. Each end has a differently shaped and sized rose quartz stone attached to it. Quartz is shaped in a way suited to massage different parts of the face and neck.

What is rose quartz?

This is a natural stone mined in different parts of the world. It is composed of silicon dioxide and it has a rich history in the beauty, spiritual and love worlds. It has significant meaning in various cultures including Greek mythology, Egyptian culture, native and South American cultures. The stone is viewed as an emblem of love, forgiveness, inner peace and compassion.

Benefits of the rose quartz roller

  • Firmer and tighter skin
  • Decreased puffiness
  • Improved youthful appearance
  • Increased circulation
  • Better absorption of products
  • Relaxation of tense facial muscles, leading to a better complexion, less risk teeth clenching, less frowning and pursing of the mouth which all lead to increased wrinkles
  • Aids in sinus issues
  • Helps with headaches
  • Cooling and soothing
  • Lessened dark circles and eye-bags

Massaging the skin with the roller helps you get rid of folds, creases and wrinkles which are ordinarily known to cause saggy skin. In addition, the roller is excellent at lymphatic drainage. Repetitive rolling gets rid of excess fluids on your skin thus reducing puffiness and firming the skin.

The silicon dioxide found in rose quartz is also beneficial to the skin. It boosts the healing process if your face or neck has been fractured. In addition, silicon also restores the skin's natural glow, a benefit that could also be achieved by simply massaging the skin regularly. Skin massages also help improve circulation beneath the skin thus making it easier for nutrients to reach the outer part of your skin.

Are you always looking tired?

This roller eliminates that tired look, especially under the eyes. Just as a whole body massage helps you feel rejuvenated, massaging your face with this roller, will eliminate dark eye circles and keep your skin looking and feeling young and fresh.

Lastly, the rose quartz's spiritual symbol could also contribute greatly to beauty, Rose quartz is believed to boost forgiveness and compassion as well as resolve anger issues. All these emotional problems can affect your beauty. When you're angry, you will express it through your face by clenching your jaw or furrowing your brows. This, in turn leads to wrinkles and creases. Therefore, if the quartz helps you deal with these underlying emotions, you can easily restore your beauty.

Gua Sha facial massage

 What is Gua Sha? 

Thousands of years ago, the Gua Sha massage technique was discovered and used predominantly in China and South Asia. This technique involves using a set of tools ranging from precious stones, porcelain spoons and a horn. The technique entails massaging different parts of the neck and face (and body) in a bid to eliminate muscular tension, folds and wrinkles.

Gua Sha Facial Massage Benefits

Gua Sha massage is often likened to physiotherapy or a botox.

  • Breaks down Fascia
  • Loosens tight muscles
  • Increases circulation
  • Lifts and tones
  • De-puffs
  • Regular use creates a youthful glow

The technique helps relieve tension in facial muscles in two ways; first, a Gua Sha massage eases stress and headaches thus helping you to relax. Second, if you're suffering from tight jaw muscles (TMJ) the technique will ease the tension on these muscles just as physiotherapy does. The final result is a relaxed look which adds to your beauty immensely.

By massaging the face using the Gua Sha set, you improve blood circulation as well as open any blocked pores, thus improving serum absorption. In return, this keeps your face hydrated and youthful.

Regular Gua Sha massages are also believed to get rid of muscular pain and headaches. A lot of things could cause headaches including stress and tension. When you massage your face with a Gua Sha set, you will release tension and improve blood flow to your head. As a result, oxygen will be transported to your head easily.

Sinus issues resulting from congestion in your nose area can be eased greatly. In traditional Chinese medicine, Gua Sha was used to treat sinus problems. The massage eases congestion and clears the head thus leading to better circulation of blood in your entire head and face.

Some have called our Rose Quartz Set a natural "botox in a box". Others say it is addictive! We say, we are yet to find a person who hasn't loved their Roller & Gua Sha and hasn't raved about its benefits.
