How to Use Rose Quartz Stone on Your Face: Step-by-Step Guide

Have you ever wanted to have a similar experience to attending a fancy and expensive spa for facial treatments in the comfort of your own home? Have you tried a rose quartz stone gua sha yet? If you answered yes to the first question but no to the second, you may find after reading this post that everything changes.

There are various gua shas and rollers available right now, including jade, tourmaline, and amethyst, but in the following post, we want to discuss rose quartz stone.

As well as discussing what they are, we will also talk about their benefits and how to use a rose quartz stone on your face.

What is a Rose Quartz Stone Gua Sha?

A rose quartz gua sha is a facial massage tool inspired by ancient Chinese skincare traditions. Rose quartz is one of the most popular stones right now because it benefits from naturally occurring minerals in its composition that are great for your skin and has a consistently low surface temperature.

Understanding the Benefits of Rose Quartz for Skin

Before we walk you through our step-by-step guide to using rose quartz stone gua shas, we will discuss the many benefits of using this stone on your face as part of your beauty routine.

Helps With Contouring and Reduces Puffiness Around Your Eyes

Do you have dreaded tired and puffy eyes when you wake up? If you do, you should know that the puffiness and discolouration are not just caused by not getting enough sleep but also an indication that you do not have good blood flow and are suffering from fatigue.

A significant benefit of rose quartz stone is that it can reduce this puffiness and help with contouring. The cold sensation of the stone depuffs, while the healing properties and relaxing facial massage motion improves the flow of blood and oxygen, giving you livelier and brighter-looking eyes.

While no scientific evidence suggests that rose quartz stone can slim your face, it can help you contour. Simply helping to drain those unnecessary fluids from your face will help more visible contours and attractive angles appear.

Enhances Skincare Absorption

There is a correlation between rose quartz stone and other skincare products. Moisturisers, facial oils and serums will all work better if you use them with a gua sha. Skincare products have lubricating properties that decrease the friction the stone generates. In contrast, the stone helps to distribute your skincare products evenly and ensures they are absorbed more fully.

Soothes and Cools

If you are new to rose quartz stones and why they are stored in the fridge, it is because the surface temperature of rose quartz is shallow and can stay cool to the touch for a long time. While it is not 100% effective, the cooling and soothing effect of the rose stone on acne can help reduce the irritation and inflammation associated with it.

Works as a Catalyst for the Lymphatic Drainage and Flushes Out Toxins

More than 200 lymph nodes are on your neck and 8 to 12 on your face.

The lymphatic system is essential because it helps ensure you have a balanced body fluid, disposing of unwanted bodily wastes while defending your body against various infections by helping to carry white blood cells around it.

When you use rose quartz on your face and neck, it can help stimulate those nodes.

Enhances Blood Circulation

Reports conducted over a short period show that using rose quartz for a minimum of 5 minutes a day can increase blood flow significantly by around 25%.

Using a gua sha on your face boosts blood circulation and stimulates cells to give your skin a healthy glow and look more revitalised.

There is also evidence that rose quartz can help release increased oxygen, generating better elasticity in your skin and giving it a firmer look and feel.


Alleviates Sinus Issues and Migraines

When you roll rose quartz stone across your skin, it can help to drain and unclog any impurities and unwanted buildups that are held just below the surface. In addition to many of the benefits we have already discussed, interestingly, rose quartz stone can help alleviate migraine and sinus problems.

Massaging it against your cheeks, under your eyes, and across your forehead can reduce sinus congestion and soothe pain caused by migraines.

It helps You to Destress

When rose quartz is used as a gua sha, it can help you to relax. It has natural calming and healing properties that help you feel a reduction in muscle tension, anxiety and full unwind.

Preparing Your Rose Quartz Stone

It should be ready immediately if you have taken care of your rose quartz stone between uses. There are, however, essential steps you need to take to ensure your face is prepared before you can start rolling over your face and giving it that much-needed massage.

Look at our step-by-step guide to using a rose quartz stone gua sha.

Step 1: Cleansing Your Face

It is best if you always start with a clean face.

Step 2: Applying a Facial Oil or Serum

Before using the stone, apply your preferred serum or oil. As well as providing lubrication for the gua sha, the stone will be able to spread it evenly across your skin and help it permeate into the deeper layers.

Step 3: Using Rose Quartz Stone for Facial Massage

While many people like to massage upwards and downwards, you should switch and change the stone's directions to ensure you evenly work the skin.

Step 4: Targeting Specific Areas with Rose Quartz

If your skin has troubled areas, you should target them specifically with your rose quartz.

Step 5: Cooling and Soothing with Rose Quartz

Keeping it in the fridge between uses ensures that your stone is ready to use and provides that relaxing, soothing, and cooling sensation.

Step 6: Incorporating Rose Quartz into Your Skincare Routine

Make it a habit to use your rose quartz stone daily as part of your skincare routine.

Tips for Caring and Cleaning Your Rose Quartz Stone

Although the non-porous properties of rose quartz mean it never absorbs the products you use with it, you still need to clean it so it is free from dirt, dust and other debris that can stick to it in time.

There are two ways you can easily clean your rose quartz stone –

Using a damp microfibre cloth wipes anything off your gua sha after each use. It's best to be careful because you don't want the crystal to slip out of your hands or break.

To deep clean, dip your gua sha into warm water. Clean it every single time with the most gentle soap you have. To avoid skin reactions from the soap, use your facial cleanser.

No matter which method of cleaning your solid rose quartz stone you opt for, wipe it with a clean, soft towel and allow it to air dry before you store it away.

It's best to store your rose quartz stone in the fridge. Remember to keep it in a bag to stop it from getting contaminated by other things in your fridge.
