  • Carries away toxins and congestion

How To Use Them

3 Steps To Glowing Skin

Now that you’ve know the many ways these two tools can improve your skin, let’s dive into how to put it into action. Like everything in life, it is important to use your rose quartz roller and/or gua sha stone on a consistent basis. The more often you are investing the time into your skin, the better it will look for years to come. Check out our video at the end of the blog to see these steps put into action.

Rose Quartz Roller

  • Use gentle sweeping motions
  • Direct strokes away from face or upwards
  • Pressure should feel firm, but easy to roll on your face

Gua Sha Stone

  • Use a firm, but gentle “scraping” motion
  • Direct strokes away from face or upwards
  • Pressure should feel like a gentle massage, rather than digging in at your muscles

Pro tip: Leave them in the freezer to enhance the benefits of reducing puffiness and redness — be sure to make sure it’s a clean, safe spot to store them in!

Step 1 | Prep: Add a serum to the skin before using, a couple great ones to use are the vitamin c serum, firm serum to tighten, bright serum to add radiance or calm serum to reduce redness. You can also roll over the Intense Hydrating Masque to target dryness, especially in the winter.

Step 2 | Roll or Scrape: Use the large side of the roller or flat side of the stone. Start around your cheek and move down towards your jaw and neck and finish on your forehead and upper check bones. Switch to the small side of the roller or the curved “V” side of the stone. Gently massage your under eye, lid and brow bone.

Step 3 | Finish: Once you are done with your tools, your skin should feel soft and the serum should be blended in. Complete your skin glow-up with an SPF like Daily Light Guard or a moisturizer like Tulasara Morning Renew Creme.
