WHAT A GEM

Crys­tal heal­ing has been around for cen­turies, es­pe­cially in Eastern cul­tures, and the East is hav­ing a huge in­flu­ence on the Western beauty in­dus­try right now. Case in point: gems have be­come the new skin­care go-to. The two most fre­quently used for fa­cial rollers are jade and rose quartz, thanks to their pur­ported heal­ing and cool­ing prop­er­ties. Used to gen­tly mas­sage the face, these tools en­hance blood cir­cu­la­tion, which aids ab­sorp­tion of prod­ucts. They also re­duce puffi­ness (use the smaller side for your eye area), boost col­la­gen pro­duc­tion, ease ten­sion and make for a very ther­a­peu­tic ex­pe­ri­ence all-round.

4 STEPS TO FLAW­LESS

Al­ways roll in an up­ward and out­ward mo­tion, from the cen­tre of the face to­wards the hair­line.

Use your roller in­stead of your fin­ger­tips to mas­sage prod­uct into your skin.

Store your roller in the fridge for an added cool­ing sen­sa­tion.

Charge your nat­u­ral crys­tal roller in the moon­light for ex­tra lu­nar magic. (Yes, re­ally.)
