Obsidian Face Roller
Sometimes we just want to sit back and enjoy a gentle massage performed in the comfort of our own home, without going out and spending hundreds of dollars at a spa. Everyone deserves a little me-time, and a budget-friendly tool to go with it! So, what’s better than a gorgeous, elegant facial roller made of pure obsidian glass that feels incredibly smooth on the skin, and is super easy to use?
The obsidian face roller is a double-sided beauty tool with a wider end for larger surfaces, and a smaller end for sensitive areas that require precision. It helps reduce fine lines and puffiness, while contouring the facial muscles, improving skin elasticity, and soothing the nervous system.
Since black obsidian is formed from volcanic glass, it’s different than the other stones in a way that it naturally retains warmth. This makes it a very effective tool to use on blemish prone skin and congested areas of the body. The warmth is good for supporting blood circulation and collagen production, and it can even help with sinus issues. The good news is, if you wish to get a cooling effect, you can put the obsidian face roller in the freezer for a few minutes before using it.
How to Use
Prepare your skin for the massage by cleaning it thoroughly and applying a serum, moisturizer, or oil.
Start the process by rolling at the neck area using the larger stone, and continue moving upwards.
Roll back and forth across the jawline and cheeks, starting from the center of the face towards the ears and hairline.
Use the smaller stone to gently roll around your eyes, starting from the inner corner and move outwards.
Using the larger stone again, roll vertically on the forehead, starting from the center and move outwards.
Switch to the smaller stone again, and roll up-and-down the nose moving in a horizontal motion.

When it comes to using these two tools together, it is advisable to massage your skin with the facial roller first, and then move on to the microneedling procedure.
