The Jade Roller is an ancient beauty tool that’s having a major resurgence among beauty bloggers and dermatologists alike, thanks to its incredible ability to boost your skin’s circulation. As an added awesome perk, jade rollers can actually relieve tension and stress in your face and body.
Jade Rollers date back to seventh-century China, and crystals have been used in skin care for thousands of years. Dermatologist tested and proven to reduce puffiness and swelling.
1. Get your circulation flowing.
2. They jumpstart lymphatic drainage.
3. They help with even product distribution.
HOW TO USE YOUR JADE ROLLER:
You can use the jade roller after you’ve applied your favorite serum or night cream to your skin. Or use the roller to spread your serums evenly across your skin before moving on to your moisturizers
Step 2: Begin with your neck.
The key to jade rolling your neck is to move upwards with gentle pressure. Start at your neck and move upwards from there.
Apply gentle pressure to your neck and slowly move upwards. Its best to target the sides of your neck and just under your jawline. Press and move slowly up your neck and to the base of your chin. This soft massage gives your neck a stress-relieving massage, while also promoting circulation, which helps with puffiness in your face.
Step 3: Transition to your face.
Whether you’re rolling your cheeks, chin, or forehead, you’ll want to roll outwards, away from the center of your face, towards your hairline, to really get your circulation going. Start on either side of your nose, pushing outwards as you roll. A light gentle touch is key –if you press too hard, the jade could accidentally rupture capillaries and leave you with tiny red marks on your face.
Step 4: Use the small stone for your eye area.
If you're using a double-sided roller, switch over to the small stone. The added dexterity makes it easy to target any puffy under-eye circles. Roll from the inner corner of your eye out. Since the skin under and above your eyes is extra delicate, you’ll want to use caution when treating these areas– be gentle, no pressing too hard or rough movements!
Step 5: Clean your roller.
If you used your roller to apply moisturizer or serums, you’ll want to sanitize your roller with soapy water before you store it away for later use. Apply some gentle soap or baby shampoo onto the stone, then roll and rinse it under warm water. Finally, roll it out on a clean towel to dry.
And enjoy your beautiful skin ;)
Little tip: There’s no rule that says you have to store your roller in the fridge, it’s hard to beat the added cooling sensation you get when you massage the chilled stone over your face.
