It can be difficult to discern which are the best rose quartz rollers when there are so many to choose from online, but generally, you'll want to look for a two-sided tool — so you can target both the larger and smaller parts of your face accordingly — with a well-constructed handle that won't squeak while you're using it (or worse, fall apart).
It's just as important to use a facial roller properly, so I got in touch with Elaine Huntzinger, a Paris-based acupuncturist and facial rejuvenation specialist, for her advice on technique.
According to Huntzinger, the rule for all facial massages is “up and out." Start by rolling up the back and sides of your neck, then move on to the front. Next, use your roller on your face, carefully rolling from the midline towards your hairline, finishing on one side of the face before moving on to the other half. You can roll a bit more energetically in front of the ears, but use a light, gentle pressure for the rest of your face, particularly around the eyes. "You don’t need to be kneading your skin for it to work," Huntzinger says.
Huntzinger advises using your rose quartz roller each night at bedtime, because in addition to its skin-enhancing benefits, it's a wonderfully soothing way to end the day.
