Millennials are known for taking their health and wellness pretty seriously, so it is no surprise that over the years they have dabbled in different wellness trends.

Something that has been having a moment for a while now is crystals, more specifically crystal facial rollers. In simple terms, crystals are made up of atoms of the same or different elements like silica or calcium arranged in a regular periodic way. 

Crystal facial rollers, on the other hand, are a beauty tool that has a rounded, polished crystal attached to one or both ends. They are used to massage one’s face.


Beauty gurus around the world have been posing on Instagram with their favourite facial rollers but before you get influenced and get your own we will tell you what the benefits of the different crystals are on the skin.

According to reports crystals possess energy and healing properties. Not everyone believes in the power of crystals though but fortunately, different stones have their own physical and chemical properties as well.

From rose quartz to amethyst and jade each stone possesses a unique property which provides different benefits for different skin types and concerns. This is probably why crystal facial rollers have been a staple in peoples skincare routines for a minute now.


Here is everything you need to know about different crystals 

Rose quartz facial roller  – The love stone

The energy properties of stones vary in each culture but the rose quartz is popularly known for its healing and restorative properties. It is also referred to as the ‘love stone’ or the ‘stone of the heart’ due to the belief that it can open one’s heart to finding love and channelling positivity.


As a facial roller, the crystal contains minerals like magnesium, iron, and oxygen, which help to remove dead skin cells, promote healing, and reduce inflammation. People that suffer from puffiness and want to keep wrinkles at bay would find this roller useful. 

The crystal can be very light pink (almost white) to medium-dark pink, making it aesthetically pleasing to fans of the colour.

Amethyst roller – Say bye to stress

The amethyst is known for its mind healing properties, it wards off negative energies and promotes clarity and relaxation.

According to the Sivana Spirit blog, medieval European soldiers wore amethyst for protection in battle, believing that it would heal and keep them cool-headed.

As a facial roller, because of its negative charge, the purple stone is said to draw out positively charged toxins and free radicals which cleanse and detoxify your skin. Detoxing helps tighten your pores and prevents bacteria build-up.

According to Beauty Bay, the crystal will also get rid of inflammation and redness, while nourishing the skin cells with nutrients to keep it healthy.

Jade roller – Just good vibes

Also known for its healing properties the jade crystal has been a part of Chinese traditional medicine for ages. According to The Spruce, for believers of alternative healing methods, jade provides light and soothing properties while also purifying your energy field in a manner that is accepting, loving, and wise.

Unlike the other stones, jade comes in a variety of colours like lavender, red, orange, yellow, brown, white, black, and grey.

On the skin, jade will smooth out wrinkles, sculpt your muscle and tighten any loose skin, it also increases blood circulation which in turn leaves your skin glowing. And everybody likes a little glow.

Imitation Crystals

Not all crystals are real, just like with faux diamonds some stones are just imitations. Real fans would probably be able to differentiate between the two from just one glance because there are usually clear signs that a crystal is fake.

Reportedly if you spot bubbles or paint on the stone then you have been duped. According to Gift Happy, faux crystals can be made of glass, plastic, resin or other materials.


They do not have the same chemical makeup or benefits that a natural or synthetic stone does. Synthetic crystals are made in a lab but unlike imitations, they possess the same chemical makeup as a natural stone, it just takes far less time to create them.
