Jade, rose quartz, amethyst… it’s official: healing crystals are having a shining moment. Spiritual gurus swear they can help you find love, attract money, and even keep you sane during Mercury retrograde. But while many use them for those purposes, the BeautyMNL team prefers incorporating the power of crystals in another way. Enter: crystal facial rollers.
Whatever pretty-colored stone they’re made of, these devices are likely more attractive than any skincare tool on your vanity. But beyond their IG-worthy facade, there’s good reason why the world is so bewitched by them. They’re proven to boost blood circulation, reduce under-eye swelling, and help products better absorb into your skin… the list goes on.
The only problem you might face is choosing which crystal to roll over your skin. Upon first glance, they all seem to offer the same benefits—which is pretty true. Among certain enthusiasts, however, they believe the differences lie in their spiritual properties. Which is to say: the choice comes down to preference.
Unless you’re picking one on looks alone, here’s what you should know about the 3 common crystals and how they can serve you and your skin.
IDEAL FOR: MATURE SKIN
If you’re looking for serenity, or a deeper balance between mind and body, jade is about to be your go-to. Believers even say it can go as far as protecting its wearer from harm. On a skincare level? It has a little more resistance and is less smooth than rose quartz or amethyst. For this reason, it will have a stronger impact on solid muscles of the face (i.e., the jawline), making it ideal for “lifting” the skin.

IDEAL FOR: SENSITIVE SKIN
Also known as the “love stone,” this cloudy, rosy-pink crystal enhances all areas of the heart. It vibrates with tenderness and peace, or at the very least serves as a pretty reminder to practice self-care. You can also use rose quartz to give your skin some literal love. It’s believed to pull inflammation from the body and restore instant calm. So, if your skin’s hyperactive or prone to rosacea, this stone is for you!

IDEAL FOR: OILY OR ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Amethyst is a good all-around-stone, but its greatest ability is to bring clarity to a clouded vision and relieve stress. Spiritual enthusiasts also add that it can help strengthen our intuition or “gut feeling.” As a skincare tool, it works to increase circulation and pacify angry or uncomfortable inflammation. This, in short, makes it ideal for those with oily or acne-prone complexions.
