To keep the skin glowing without the use of a highlighter, Hollywood actors use jade and quartz gadgets right before stepping onto the red carpet. What is the magic of mineral rollers? Everything new is well forgotten old: even in ancient times, Chinese women used jade rollers for their daily facial care. The essence has not changed over the years.
“The jade rollerball will ideally fit into your care system, as it relieves puffiness, evens out skin tone, relaxes muscles and activates the lymphatic system,” explains Viktoria Klishko, cosmetologist, head physician of the Remedy Lab clinic. - You can use the jade roller twice a day after thoroughly cleansing the skin. In the morning it will be appropriate as it will reduce the manifestations of puffiness. In the evening, on the other hand, it perfectly "invigorates" the skin after a busy day. By using this tool on top of an active serum or mask, we help them absorb better into the skin of the face, which means we increase the effectiveness of these products.

“There are versions with one roller, as well as two rollers of different sizes. Large is used for the face, chin and décolleté. Small - for the area around the eyelids,”says Klishko. “Run the roller along the massage lines, that is, along the lines of lower resistance of the skin, to avoid stretching. Face: from the center of the chin to the earlobe, from the corners of the lips to the central part of the ear, from the wings of the nose upward. Eyelids: lower - from the outer corner to the nose, upper - from the nose to the tail of the eyebrows. In the forehead area - from the eyebrows to the scalp. Neck: on the sides - from the lower jaw down to the collarbones, in the center - up to the chin."
The most common minerals used to make rollerblades are jade and quartz. By the way, in Russia the main deposits of jade are found in Eastern Siberia. But most of the raw materials are exported to China. Initially, massage rollers were made from jade, a milky white or greenish mineral. The Chinese believe that it rejuvenates the skin, removes toxins and fills a person with vital energy.
Victoria Beckham uses the jade roller every day and loves to pass it over a sheet mask. Actress Miranda Kerr believes in the power of rose quartz and actively uses it in her daily skincare routine. Her own skincare line, KORA Organics, recently even featured a heart-shaped quartz face sculptor. Kerr advises using it in conjunction with the oil to improve skin circulation and achieve a lifting effect. “Quartz has long been famous as a 'stone of rehabilitation' and has a positive effect on cell regeneration,” explains Dr. Klishko.
Pro tip: Put the massager in the refrigerator for an hour, it will invigorate in the early morning, and also add pleasant sensations during the massage.
You should beware of counterfeiting, as natural stone is easy enough to counterfeit. To experience all the healing properties of the mineral, you should buy rollers from trusted brands. “There are different versions of roller skates on the market, including plastic ones,” says Viktoria Klishko. "Keep in mind that they don't have the properties of stones, so they won't work on the skin." The most popular commercials in the West are Mount Lai, Herbivore Botanicals, Yu Ling Rollers, Jade Roller Beauty.
Minerals are also used to infuse water. As you know, water is considered a carrier of information and it can actually be programmed. Adherents of lithotherapy (treatment using stones) believe that infused water becomes biologically active, and they use it to prepare elixirs. They not only drink water infused with minerals, but also wash with it. The hobby was picked up by beauty companies: you can find a glass bottle from the American brand Glacce (healthy lifestyle adherents have long abandoned plastic) with a mineral embedded inside.

The online store offers pink, clear and smoky quartz, amethyst and black obsidian. According to the manufacturer, each stone carries its own special meaning, for example, pure quartz is used to increase energy, purify and help improve concentration. It is advised to fill the bottle with filtered water and infuse it during the night, but it is not worth keeping it in the refrigerator, since electromagnetic fields have a negative effect on the energy of water.>
