Black Obsidian - being volcanic glass -naturally retains warmth and is great to use on congested, blemish-prone skin. The warmth of the obsidian encourages stimulation of the circulation. To warm our Black Obsidian Roller, we recommend placing it in a glass of warm water for several minutes.
The nurturing act of massaging your face with a crystal roller can bring tranquility to your mood by reducing stress and releasing tension – similar to a body massage - but it is also beneficial for the delicate skin on your face. Evidence would suggest that the use of a crystal facial massage tool is able to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The gentle rolling action of these crystal rollers may decrease puffiness (such as bags under your eyes), possibly by stimulating venous and/or lymphatic drainage, and with daily use, we find a noticeable difference in the even tone and radiance of the skin.
Clinical studies have demonstratedthat the use of crystal rollers improves blood circulation in your face by stimulating blood flow to the skin, and may help make your skin look brighter. Some have suggested anti-aging effects, especially when combined with our youth restoringDream ElixirTM.
If you want to enjoy the cooling feeling of the crystal rollers on the face, store them in the refrigerator. This is particularly effective when using the Rose Quartz rollers.
Beyond the effects on your face, using these rollers as a facial massage can improve your mood, and clinical evidence indicates that their use may help to reduce anxiety for some people.
Crystal rollers are an excellent tool to distribute a skin care product to your face, gliding the treatment across your skin. We recommend the use of our rollers withDream ElixirTMto help deliver the product deeper into your skin.
