When it comes to beauty trends, there always seems to be something new claiming to be the newest greatest thing. While jade rollers aren’t a newcomer to the beauty scene, they sure have been getting a little bit of coverage lately.
I first wrote about the jade roller back in my early blogging days of 2016. While my writing style has (hopefully) changed, my love for this humble little device has not.
What is a Jade facial roller?
Essentially, a roller is a dual ended tool made out of smooth crystal. These rollers are mainly made out of jade, rose quartz or amethyst.
How to use a jade facial roller?
Pop your roller into the fridge or freezer for 10 before use (I personally just leave mine in there). Apply your skincare and get rolling. Starting in the middle of your chin, roll your device up along one side of your jaw and repeat on the other side of your face. Move your way up always remembering the golden rule of up and outward motions. While there is no wrong way to roll, the up and out technique will be the most beneficial.
What are the benefits of a jade roller?
The combination of the cool stone and the rolling action promotes lymphatic drainage. Put simply, this movement detoxifies the skin and eliminates toxins and excess fluid stored in the body.
Facial massages are also said to promote blood flow in the skin, which can also increase the production of collagen. It isn’t going to get you the same results as a laser treatment, but with regular use, your skin will pay you back by looking more awake and radiant.
The use of this tool in conjunction with skincare can also allow your products to penetrate the skin deeper. This means you’ll reap the full benefits of your skincare.
Do you need it?
This, in all honesty, is a very unnecessary device. But, having said that, these nifty little things are not going to break the bank, and if you are someone who struggles with puffy skin and dark circles this just might be the tool help you to combat that.
