Let’s Get Rolling: How to Use a Rose Quartz Facial Roller

WHY ROSE QUARTZ?

Rose Quartz is more than just a pretty face—it is a stone etched in history. Though the stone has seen a recent increase in popularity thanks to skincare gurus, YouTube tutorials and celebrity bathroom counters, Rose Quartz dates back to ancient civilizations who praised the crystal for its powerful healing properties. Today, the pretty pink stone is still highly regarded, and you will often hear it mentioned in everything from Eastern Medicine to modern beauty spas. With its spiritual reputation for promoting healing, compassion, unconditional love and joy, it is no coincidence that this beautiful stone has made its way to the top of every skincare lovers must-have list.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Rose Quartz Facial Rollers can provide a treasure chest full of skincare benefits, depending on the technique you use during your rose quartz facial. Varying pressures and the direction that you roll across your face can help improve the look of uneven skin tone, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help ease tension. The COSMEDIX Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller is specially designed with dual-sided rollers to help you easily roll away puffiness and revitalize the look of skin for a plumper, radiant-looking complexion.

HOW TO USE?

Hydrate + De-Puff Facial

Help reduce puffiness, improve the look of redness and increase product absorption with the Hydrate + De-Puff Facial. Our skin puts up a fight for us on a daily basis. Lucky for us, it also hides a tiny “drainage” system underneath the surface that helps it flush away these day-to-day stressors. Give your skin a helping hand and help get that system moving by adding this gentle facial in your skin care routine, using your COSMEDIX Rose Quartz Crystal Facial Roller.

First, apply Surge Hyaluronic Acid Booster to a cleansed face and neck. This complexion-quenching serum will help hydrate the skin, plump of the look of fine lines, and promote a more even texture during your facial. Now let’s get rolling:

Neck: Start where the jawline meets the ear, then gently roll in a downward motion, stopping at the base of your neck. Repeat this step 3x until moving to the next section, always beginning at the jawline and ending at the clavicle with gentle movements. Face: Begin in the center of your chin, then gently roll outward towards your hairline, repeating 3x. After your third pass, continue rolling down the side of your face towards the clavicle bone. Repeat these steps all the way up your face, working in sections and ending at the top of your forehead. Don’t forget to repeat on the other side of your face.

Firm + Revitalize Facial

Help brighten the complexion, refine the look of pores and plump up the look of skin with the Firm + Revitalize Facial. This Rose Quartz facial requires a firmer, more rigorous roll across the skin to help define features and promote a radiant-looking complexion.

Begin your facial by applying Affirm Antioxidant Firming Serum to a clean face and neck. Powered by rich antioxidants and peptides, this skin-loving serum will help protect skin from age-accelerating environmental stressors while encouraging a complexion that is brighter and firmer-looking. Now let’s get rolling:

Neck: With a firm pressure, start at the base of the neck and roll upward towards the jawline. Repeat this step up to 10x before moving to the next section, working your way from left ear to center, then right ear to center. Face: Begin at the center of your chin, then roll in an upward, diagonal motion towards the ear. Repeat 10x, working in sections until your reach the top of your forehead. Don’t forget to repeat on the other side—and then your facial is complete!

Dry Hands? Indulge in COSMEDIX Skin-Loving Skin Care Treatments

Between the constant hand washing, pumps of hand sanitizer and (for some of us) latex gloves, it’s easy to see why our hands might be craving some extra TLC. As the world faces constant change, it is important that we prioritize our health and the health of those around us by keeping our hands clean. Many of any of us know, with constant washing often comes chapped, dry hands, and that’s why using a moisturizing hand cream is an essential part of our daily skin care routine.

Just as you would coat dry lips in nourishing Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Hydrator or quench your skin with the Emulsion Intense Hydrator, it’s important to treat dry hands to the same skin-loving attention. Help combat dehydrated hands with COSMEDIX hydrating skin care ingredients—including sweet almond oil, argan oil, jojoba oil and organic, full-spectrum Cannabis Sativa (hemp) oil cultivated in U.S. farms—to help keep hands soft and moisturized, especially in between all that washing.

Spread the love even further when you gift our moisturizing hand cream or soothing CBD products to the brave men and women who are serving on the frontlines during these tough times.

Quick Tips for Getting Your Skin Spring Ready!

Ready or not—here spring comes!

Say goodbye to bitter winds, heavy winter coats and dry, flaky skin. It’s time to embrace the new season with open arms and what better way than to switch up your skincare regimen? As the seasons’ change, so do our individual skincare needs, which is why it’s important to reevaluate your skin at the start of each season. Here are four, quick tips for transitioning your products from winter to spring:

Pop In To See A Professional

While you may not notice a drastic change in your skin, seeking guidance from a skincare professional is always recommended as they help you customize a regimen that will protect skin against environmental stressors and treat additional concerns. Whether you stop by for a facial or a more advanced peel, regularly treating yourself to a professional skincare treatment is equal parts luxury and necessity. At your next visit, ask your aesthetician about the spa exclusive, Reboot, which replenishes the skin with lasting hydration and healthy probiotics for a more youthful-looking complexion. To find a spa near you, go to the COSMEDIX spa finder!

Add Vitamin C Into Your Routine

If you’re battling with uneven skin tone, look no further than COSMEDIX’s Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals. Vitamin C helps to improve skin texture and tone and Pure C is 100% L-ascorbic acid.  Add these crystals to your nighttime routine and it will boost the results of other serums or moisturizers. For application, dispense one pump of Simply Brilliant 24/7 Brightening Serum into your hand and add a few shakes of Pure C. Mix together and apply to clean skin using circular motions. Evenly distribute product onto your skin, neck and décolleté for added coverage. In no time, this product will help to neutralize free radicals, reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improve the skin’s elasticity.

Find Your Perfect SPF

While we recommend applying SPF year-round, it’s vital that you begin implementing a powerful sun protectant before enjoying outdoor spring activities. If you’re in the market for a new SPF, we recommend Hydrate + —a moisturizing sunscreen that’s suitable for all skin types. This Daily SPF and moisturizer duo helps to protect skin from environmental elements with SPF 17 and hydrates the skin for improved elasticity and radiance. Apply this moisturizer to your face, neck, décolletage and hands 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapply at least every 2 hours for maximum benefits.

Protect the Eye Area

As you begin spending more time outdoors, be sure to protect the eye area with Eye Genius Brilliant Eye Complex. Eyes are one of the first parts of our bodies to show signs of aging, so combat that with this morning eye cream. This 3-in-1 cream tackles dark circles, puffiness and fine lines with a genius formula that includes five firming peptides, Vitamin E, light-reflecting mica and PFCs.

Switch Up Your Cleansers

While many winter cleansers are formulated to help treat dry, flaky skin, we recommend finding a spring/summer cleanser that gently purifies skin and removes unwanted debris and environmental pollutants. Packed with herbal amaranth, sandalwood and grapefruit oil, Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser compliments any regimen and is sure to soothe and hydrate all skin types.

 

 

Our Brighter Skin Secret!

skin brightening due, pure c, vitamin c

One of our most frequently asked questions is how to correctly use Pure C with the rest of your COSMEDIX skincare. We typically recommend a 3:1 ratio, with a “dash” of Pure C for every 2-3 pumps of your favorite serum. To take an even deeper dive, we tapped Sonia Barrow-Conerly, COSMEDIX East Coast Regional Educator, to share some of her favorite Pure C cocktails!

Brighten up your day by putting a “dash” of Pure C in your life.  Pure C is 100% L-Ascorbic acid in a powder form, and can be added to any COSMEDIX serum or moisturizer of your choice – it is just what you need to supercharge any of your serums or moisturizers.  Pure C is an antioxidant, so it helps in the pro-aging fight because of its ability to target fine lines and wrinkles!

I love the added benefit of pairing it with Simply Brilliant because it gives the skin a special at-home treatment with the added benefits from Pure C that plumps and firms the skin.  It plays a key role in the appearance of a more even skin tone and leaves the skin looking radiant.

I also like pairing Pure C with Cell ID, which is one of our favorite peptide pro-aging serums.  Cell ID assists in filling in fine lines and wrinkles by increasing  natural ceramides, and a “dash” of Pure C brightens up the skin, adds a boost of antioxidants, and is healing.

Affirm is another serum that pairs extremely well with Pure C, as Affirm is an antioxidant serum and a multi-vitamin for the skin.  It is ideal for skin maintenance because it helps to condition the skin and is hydrating.  A “dash” of Pure C gives Affirm an edge over other antioxidant serums.
