What is green Aventurine and its benefits in skincare ?

November 09, 2021

No matter how complex or straightforward your skincare routine is, you have probably seen those little facial rollers made from the beautiful green stone. They’re popping up everywhere on social media, in beauty magazines, and in skincare tutorial videos.

 

If you have never used one, you might not know the benefits of facial rollers yet, but don’t worry! We’re going to cover everything you need to know about facial rollers, including their benefits, how to use them, and what they are made out of.

 

Perhaps the most popular material that is used to make facial rollers is Indian Jade or Aventurine.

What is Green Aventurine?

If you’ve ever heard of a jade roller, you’ve heard of an aventurine roller! They are actually the same thing, just sometimes called by different names.

 

Aventurine is more affordable and ethically sourced than precious jade. Still, it looks very similar and has many of the same benefits. Aventurine, like precious jade, is known to have metaphysical properties that bring luck, good health, abundance, and security.

What is an Aventurine Facial Roller?

An aventurine facial roller is a tool that is used to massage the face and stimulate the lymphatic system.

 

Aventurine rollers have a handle made of aventurine with two rollers on end – a larger one and a smaller one. The larger end is used for areas of the face with more extensive surfaces such as the neck, forehead, and cheeks. While the smaller end is for massaging small, delicate areas of the face (under the eyes, nose, lips, and chin).

 

Although you may have just started to see aventurine rollers everywhere, they are not new or innovative beauty tools. They are actually ancient tools that date back to the seventh century when people in China would use them in their skincare routines.

 

Aventurine rollers and worked so well for thousands of years because they are straightforward. Basically, they work very well because stones tend to stay on the cooler side. Rolling a cold stone on the face while applying gentle pressure helps decrease puffiness, restrict blood flow, and drain the lymph nodes to flush out toxins.

 

What Are the Benefits of Facial Rollers?

So, your favorite beauty guru swears by facial rollers – but what do they do? There are many benefits of using facial rollers, especially ones that are made from aventurine.

 

The most significant benefits of using facial rollers are improved circulation and lymphatic drainage. If you use an aventurine facial roller in your daily beauty routine, you will notice glowing, less puffy skin.

 

Other benefits of facial rollers include:

  • Fewer headaches or headache relief
  • Jaw pain/tension relief
  • Sinus congestion relief
  • Eye strain relief
  • Calm red, irritated skin
  • Gentle face massage

 

Because aventurine is a stone, it tends to stay cold, even when it’s just sitting in your bathroom cabinet. Rolling a slightly chilly aventurine stone on your face can help restrict blood flow. This makes the face less puffy and red, even if you have a skin condition.

 

For example, people with rosacea tend to have red, inflamed skin. A cool aventurine roller can help calm the skin down to reduce redness and help create a smooth, even skin tone and texture.

 

If you feel that your skin is particularly red or puffy one day and you’d like to intensify the cooling aspect of your massage, place your aventurine roller in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes. The cold stone will feel amazing against your skin!

 

How to Use an Aventurine Roller

Suppose you really want to experience the benefits of an aventurine facial roller. In that case, you have to make sure you use it correctly – especially if your goal is lymphatic drainage.

 

Lymphatic Drainage

  1. Place the large end of your aventurine roller at the middle of your chin. Apply gentle pressure and roll from your chin, along your jawline, and up to your ear.
  2. Starting at the corner of your mouth, apply gentle pressure, and roll from your mouth, under your cheekbone to your ear.
  3. Place the smaller end of your aventurine roller alongside your nose, apply gentle pressure, and roll underneath your eye to your temple.
  4. Place the smaller end at the bridge of your nose, apply gentle pressure, and rollover your eyelid to your temple.
  5. Using the larger roller, roll from your eyebrow to your hairline while applying gentle pressure.
  6. Repeat steps 1-6 on the opposite side of your face.

 

Lymphatic drainage is only one way to use an aventurine roller. You can also use it every morning to reduce puffiness around your eyes to make your face look brighter and more awake.

 

Reduce Puffiness

  1. Place your aventurine roller in the fridge or freezer overnight.
  2. In the morning, remove your facial roller from the fridge or freezer and use the smaller end to reduce puffiness around the eyes.
  3. Use the larger end to calm and tighten the skin on the rest of your face.

 

You can even combine using a face roller to reduce puffiness with your morning skincare routine. If you have long nails or worry about transferring germs from your hands to your face, you can use an aventurine facial roller to apply the product to your face.

 

Apply Skincare Products

  1. Apply a little bit of product to either side of your aventurine roller. You can either drop the product onto the roller or put a little bit in your palm and dip the roller.
  2. Roll the product onto your face using gentle pressure
  3. Continue to roll around the face until the product is completely absorbed.
