The Science of Crystals & Face Tools & Why You Need Them

When I joined WildGlow, one of the many interesting products I was intrigued with was the Face Roller. Sure, I had come across face tools such as face Gua Sha and face rollers before and used them but there was something quite different about WildGlow’s face tools. By the end of this article, you will realize what’s so special about them, but for now, let me walk you through why you need face tools in your life. 

What Are Face Tools Anyway?

Ever visited your salon didi to get your eyebrows shaped? Yes, I’m talking about those times when you’re just engineering your hands on your face in a way that supports minimally painful eyebrow shaping. Then comes the part where you ask your salon didi to apply an astringent on your eyebrows. She goes on to get it and then gives you a massage. Oh to get a relaxing face massage after getting your eyebrows done🤌It feels like the skin is rejuvenated again. Eyebrow shaping is all that bad after all. 

You must be wondering why I suddenly digressed into eyebrow shaping, I mean how relevant is that with this article. Well, let me tell you something. Face tools are like massagers for your face that don’t just aim to soothe tension on your face and give you a dreamy, relaxing feeling, but also promote long-term benefits.

Imagine having a bad day at work, and giving yourself a relaxing massage. How soothing is that! That’s the power of face tools such as Gua Sha stone and face roller - they promote stress relief while blessing your skin with anti-ageing benefits.

Types Of Face Tools

Face Roller:

A tool that rolls on your face, quite literally😛This is what it looks like: 

You saw that beautiful pretty pink thing up there? That's one of your skin's best friends. If you have used this thing before, I'm sure you're simping over it till date. But if you have not, then you are about to roll into a dream of radiance. Face rollers could be made of crystals like Green Jade or Rose Quartz. It comprises 2 sides as you can clearly see; the bigger side is for your cheeks, forehead, and jawline. While the small side of the face roller is for your under-eye area, nose, and temples. The best way to use it is to apply a gentle pressure and roll it in an upward and outward motion while using the larger side. You can begin with a light pressure and then increase it eventually. Remember, these are crystals, do not use them harshly. This hand held tool aims to give a mini-spa like treat to your skin. It’s also quite easy to glide it over the curves on your face.

The face roller literally rolls on your face and by this action of rolling it is able to massage your face and stimulate blood flow to your skin. When you have a better blood circulation, your skin cells’ nutrient uptake also improves. A better nutrient uptake corresponds to better delivery of oxygen and essential vitamins, which support your skin’s health. Better nutrient uptake helps in boosting collagen production thereby promoting a radiant and youthful skin. Oxygen maintains cellular metabolism, which further helps in cell repair. Face rolling also aids in toxin removal; you get rid of toxins and waste products present in your skin cells. Remember, toxins have the potential to cause breakouts!

2- Reduced Puffiness: 

You ought to give a face roller a try if you awaken swollen or puffy eyes. Using face rollers to apply cooling stones like rose quartz or green jade will help reduce puffiness and inflammation. Rollers constrict blood vessels which reduces swelling, puffiness, and dark circles. Face rolling can give you a refreshed under-eye region.

3- Enhanced Product Absorption:

So when you use a face tool after applying a topical skincare product on your face, you increase its effectiveness. The roller’s rolling action helps absorb these active ingredients in the serum well by enhancing their penetration. 

4- Relaxation and Stress Reduction: 

You can just come home, have your dinner, do your night skincare routine, and roll into relaxation with face rollers. Their rolling action massages your face and promotes stress-relief! The cool surface of these face tools also serves to make you feel calm and relaxed. The cooling effect it gives can soothe irritation and inflammation.

Gua Sha stones are designed to glide smoothly on your face. Their scraping action releases toxins, and improves blood circulation. It is a smooth-edged instrument that stimulates soft tissue microcirculation which enhances blood flow. Gua Sha stone massages away tension and toxin build-up beneath your skin’s surface. Gua Sha stones are made of crystals such as Rose Quartz and Jade Green; we will discuss the benefits of these stones below.

Gua sha presents numerous benefits, among which lies the enhancement of blood circulation. The scraping movement of Gua Sha assists in stimulating the blood circulation to your skin. Improved circulation facilitates the effortless progression of nutrient uptake, enabling cellular assimilation of vital nourishment and oxygen, while also eliminating metabolic debris.

2- Reduced muscle tension and pain: 

Gua sha is frequently used to relieve pain and stress in the muscles. It lessens stiffness and discomfort by releasing tense muscles and fascia through skin scraping. 

3- Detoxification: 

Through its stimulating scraping motion, Gua Sha promotes the expulsion of accumulated fluids and unnecessary substances via lymphatic drainage. This purging process may imbue individuals with a sensation of rejuvenation and revitalization.

Regular participation in Gua Sha treatments increases skin elasticity, reduces dullness and enhances the brightness of a vibrant, youthful face.

4- Stress relief and relaxation:

This self-pampering practice serves as a relaxing retreat for your skin! Just like face roller, Gua Sha’s scraping movement helps in alleviating stress and helps you relax. Gua Sha stone is a relaxing symbol of self care that helps you unwind after a tiring day!

5- Facial rejuvenation: 

Gua sha, a popular facial therapy, is often employed as a means to enrich facial contours and promote youthful skin. This technique, known for its ability to invigorate blood circulation and promote lymphatic drainage, possesses the power to illuminate one's complexion, refine the jawline, and diminish swelling. With regular application, Gua sha can even impart a firmness to sagging skin, alleviate the appearance of under-eye circles, and bestow upon the individual a resplendent and robust countenance.

6- Enhanced immune function: 

Advocates of Gua sha assert that by facilitating the innate healing mechanisms of the body, their product possesses the capacity to fortify immunity. By virtue of its ability to augment circulation and lymphatic drainage, Gua sha potentially reinforces the body's resilience against infections and ailments.
