Benefits of the Black Obsidian Face Roller

No one can exactly say when crystal rollers came to their iconic fame, but you’ll be hard-pressed not to find one in most skincare routines. Due to their simplicity and affordability, men and women prefer crystal rollers over most facial massage tools. And there are many, including the very unknown Kansa wand.

With a few strokes, crystal rollers can help diminish wrinkles, fine lines, while increasing collagen and elasticity, so they say. (Word of advice: the derma roller is the only facial massage tool that comes close to producing collagen).

Many have purchased their crystal facial rollers on Amazon, or another online store. Some chose the most affordable option for longevity, while others picked the least affordable to test the waters. It’s very likely that you either purchased a rose quartz roller or a jade roller, like the one below:

The Jade Roller

We often see jade and rose quartz rollers on Instagram, but there are many crystals to choose from. The right crystal depends on the individual, as well as the crystal’s healing, anti-aging, and detoxing abilities. 

Types of Crystals

There are six popular crystals, including the black obsidian. We’ll explore the benefits of that crystal later. But first, here are five crystals that work in different ways, healing skin conditions from acne to wrinkles.

  1. Rose quartz – A light pink roller that reduces impurities and decreases stress. It drains the body of negative energy, detoxes the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
  2. Amethyst – These come in deep purple and blue crystals and are well-known to treat inflammation and acne-prone skin.
  3. Blue soladite – A deep blue crystal that can also treat inflammation. Additionally, it hydrates skin cells to increase the health of your skin.
  4. Red jasper – Blood red in complexion, this crystal is ideal for mature skin. It improves skin elasticity, prevents wrinkles and aids in the growth of new skin cells.
  5. Clear quartz – A beautiful clear crystal with “powerful healing energies”. It has a high silica content, which may not be good, as some crystalline silica is harmful. However, experts say that you can use the clear quartz roller with other crystals to amplify their energy potential.

Black obsidian is the sixth crystal.

Ebony in color, it has the most powerful energy of all the crystals. It brings skin imbalances such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema to the surface and releases them from the body. It extracts negative energy which, some experts say, is beneficial to your muscle tissues.

If you desire a crystal more for its healing abilities, you will benefit from the black obsidian face roller in many ways. It can promote balance and inner-peace within the body, and has healing powers that can improve your mental well-being (stress, anxiety, etc.) and increase confidence.

It also has the potential to improve your skin. The black obsidian face roller minimizes pores, prevents breakouts, softens skin and hydrates skin. For a more radiant complexion, apply a face oil, serum, or night cream onto your skin.

The following technique is similar to that of any face roller: gently glide the crystal roller over your face in outward motions, moving towards your drainage points (one is beside both ears and the other is your clavicle).

Step 1:

Start at your neck with the large side of your roller. Gently roll down to your drainage point (the clavicle).

Step 2:

Move the roller across your right jawline and down the neck, toward the clavicle. Do this on both sides.

Step 3:

Roll the crystal from your mouth across your lower cheek, toward your drainage point (the ear). Do this on both sides.

Step 4:

Roll just above your upper lip (the spot between your nose and top lip) with the small side of the roller. Move it under your cheek bone, all the way across to your drainage point (the ear). Do this on both sides.

Step 5:

Press the large side of your black obsidian roller at the side of your nose and gently glide it across the center of your cheekbone, toward your drainage point (the ear). Do this on both sides.

Step 6:

Use the small side and very gently roll under your eyes, towards your drainage point (the ear). Do this on both sides.

Step 7:

Place the roller directly at the center of your forehead and roll across your eyebrows, gliding down toward your drainage point (the ear). Do this on both sides.

Step 8:

Finally, place the black obsidian roller at the center of your forehead and glide it down to your drainage point (the ear). Do this on both sides.

Do this technique for ten minutes a day for mental and physical relief. It can be done as an evening ritual after a stressful day, or in the morning to kick-start a positive day.

Always store your roller in a linen bag, as they are very delicate and this will prolong its use.

This roller can be incorporated with your current face roller. As it has many health benefits, it can be used in the evening to de-stress after a hectic day. Your jade roller, rose quartz roller, etc., can be used in the morning for their skin benefits.
