What is a jade roller?
First of all, the jade roller is not a recent innovation. Jade roller is a Chinese skincare tool and it is a part of Chinese skincare routine since the 7th century. It is a paint roller shaped tool made from jade stone. This tool features a small stone and a large stone; smaller one is used for massaging under the eyes and around the mouth and larger one for areas around cheeks, jaw and forehead.
Do Jade facial rollers really work?
Jade stones are calming, so it is said that it can improve your mood and release negativity. There are so many other benefits of jade roller for skin.
Jade rollers are used to massage your face and it is as effective as any other facial massage if done correctly. Using a jade roller for massaging can boost blood circulation, reduce swelling. Also, it will help the product penetrate deeper into your skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Tip- Keep your jade roller, wrapped in a soft and dry cloth, in the fridge.
What are the benefits of jade roller for skin?
Increases blood circulation – Rolling stimulates blood flow and makes your skin look firm and bright.
Decreases puffiness – Face roller may also decrease puffiness under eyes by stimulating lymphatic drainage.
Helps skin in absorbing the product – When you glide roller across your skin, this process helps deliver the product deeper into your skin.
Calms irritation – Rolling a jade roller feels a bit like you’re applying an ice-pack on your face. And this cool touch will calm your skin irritation.
Smooths fine lines – Proper blood circulation maintains the flow of oxygen to the skin cells. It’ll also help penetrate the product deeper into the skin and soon you’ll find a noticeable reduction in fines lines and wrinkles.
How to use a jade roller?
Okay, so why people are rolling a stone over their face? I think this is the best thing I’ve added in my skincare routine.
Jade stone has lots of healing properties, gives a cool touch to your skin and reduce puffiness.
Most of the jade rollers have two stones; one is larger and another one is smaller. Now the question arises that how you are going to use this?
So firstly get yourself a jade roller today and let’s get into the fun stuff!
Step 1 –
Clean/wash your face with gentle facial cleanser/face wash. Cleansing is essential to remove all the dirt out of your face before you start rolling.
Step 2 –
After cleansing your face you need to moisturise it properly. Either use a good moisturiser or facial oil. If facial oil suits your skin then I’ll suggest you should use that because it’ll add even more moisture.
Step 3 –
Now start rolling!
Note- Don’t do roll fastly; otherwise, your skin will not absorb the product you’ve applied.
1.Begin with your neck. With the larger stone apply gentle pressure to your neck and slowly move upwards to start the lymphatic system. Do this for 3-5 minutes.
2.Place the larger stone of jade roller on your chin and with gentle pressure, roll it towards your ear. Repeat this for 5-6 times on the same spot and then on the opposite side.
3.Once you‘re done with cheeks & jaw switch to your forehead. With the larger end, start from the middle of the forehead and roll towards your ears. Repeat this for 5-6 times and then switch to the opposite side.
4.After this, use the smaller end of the roller for the undereye and gently move from the inner corner of your eye to outwards to the temple. Do this for 10-15 times (only one side) and then switch to another eye. Follow the same undereye method with your brows.
5.After giving yourself a nice stress-relieving massage with the jade roller, don’t forget to clean it. Clean it with some gentle soap or baby shampoo and then wash thoroughly with warm water.
How often should you use a jade roller?
I suggest that you should use jade roller twice a day; once in the morning and once at night. However, you can use it as many times as you want, but don’t roll with too much pressure.
Also if facial oil suits your skin then do jade rolling after applying that because that will work wonder on your skin.
