By now, you’ve probably heard the buzz around facial rollers as more and more hit the beauty market. But did you know the Mayans and African Egyptians have been using facial rollers as a massage and meditation tool for more than 5,000 years? It’s the ultimate beauty tool from Eastern Chinese Medicine, and has recently made beauty news for leading a movement of ancient skincare tools for facial use in organic spas!

So what kind of beauty facial tool is right for you? Let’s break down the two different styles!
The action of facial rolling increases circulation and rids skin of toxins via lymphatic drainage. Increased blood flow means your facial muscles will improve in their tone, effectively carving out the cheekbones and jawline (hello, cheekbones for days!). Wrinkles will be smoothed, and increased blood flow will act detoxifying to the skin and lead to more brightness, clarity and a glowing complexion.
Pro tip: Cool down the facial roller by placing it in the fridge, then use it to effectively reduce dark under-eye circles, or place the stones in warm water and roll over any serum to help it penetrate more deeply into the skin! Check out a few serums we love here and here!

The practice of gua sha is an ancient Chinese medical treatment that uses the pressure applied by precisely shaped stones to release trapped energy that can cause illness, muscle tension, stress and more. These stones aim to break down tissue blockages and release all those icky toxins our skin can accumulate.
