How to Minimize Stress with a Face Roller?For a safe and relaxing face massage, always use the face roller in an upwards direction and avoid rolling it back and forth. Begin by applying your favorite facial cream, serum, or massage oil on your face to make sure that the facial roller does not tug on the skin. We recommend the LLIO - Love Yourself Rose Quartz Bath & Body Crystoil
, a blend of rose geranium, sweet orange, and lavender oils.
Here is the step-by-step method to use a face roller.
Start from the neck and roll upwards. You can count up to three or five upward rolls to fall into a rhythm.
Roll from the jawline towards your ear on both sides, with gentle pressure, with a similar count.
Now, continue this motion from your jawline to your cheekbones on either side.
Next, you can roll upwards on the forehead.
- Finally, roll flat along the eyebrows. This is especially helpful if you are suffering from a headache.
Dermatologists suggest using it firmly on the cheeks and a little more gently on the jawline and the neck region.
How Long Can I use the Face Roller?
A recent research study published in Elsevier’s Complementary Therapies in Medicine revealed that a 5-minute massage done every day for 5 weeks helped increase skin blood flow.
Even with a few minutes every day, you may notice that your skin is feeling taut and youthful.
How to Clean your Face Roller?
Use a soft tissue to wipe off any moisturizer or cream that may have rubbed off on the stones. You can then use a gentle face wash to kill any bacteria from the surfaces. Always use room temperature water as very hot water may harm the quality of the stone. Finally, wipe it dry with a soft cloth.

Where to Buy?
We recommend our premium crystal face rollers for a deeply nourishing face massage.
The stones are naturally cool to the touch, which helps to soothe any inflammation as well as redness in the face. Also, our face rollers come with a large-sized natural stone at one end intended for the facial massage and a smaller stone at the other end, which is a perfect fit for an under-eye delicate massage.
Tips to Buy Face Rollers
Make sure you buy from a reputed store as many of the jade rollers that are sold are not jade at all. They could be stones that have been dyed or treated with polymers. And that’s not good for your skin! One of the easiest ways is to touch the jade stone; it should feel cool when you touch it. Real jade stones will have some marbling on the surface too.
