Hey beauties! I’m back today with a new post to talk about the hottest new beauty craze, jade rolling! I’m sure you’ve seen it trending all over your Instagram feed by now. I’m a sucker for anything that promises to make my skin look and feel better. It’s the reason I’ve officially added jade rolling to my Sunday beauty ritual. I will be discussing how to use it and all of it’s amazing benefits!
What is a Jade Roller?
A jade roller is a facial tool made of stone that has been in practice for centuries in Chinese skincare. Rose quartz and Jade stone are among the most popular. There are two rollers on each end- a large side and a small side. The larger side is used to massage the cheeks, chin, and forehead while the smaller side is used to massage under the eyes, brows, etc.
As with most beauty products, all facial rollers are not created equal. There are a lot of plastic fake ones out there that look very similar to a jade roller so beware. A good rule of thumb is to check if the stone is cold. An authentic roller will be noticeably cool to the touch.
The Benefits: What Does It Do?
Jade rolling offers many aesthetic and health benefits. It is believed to help with inflammation, redness, puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles. Gently using your roller to massage your face helps move and clear the lymph flow. It is a great way to boost circulation, stimulate collagen production, and flush toxins while toning and firming your skin. Aesthetically, it helps smooth and reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles as well as aide in diminishing dark under-eye circles. This all natural beauty tool will detoxify and destress your skin without the use of toxins, chemicals, or injections. What’s not to love about that!
How To Use a Jade Roller
Using a jade roller is quite simple. After a freshly cleansed face, always roll in an upward and outward direction using a light, sweeping motion. Never roll back and forth. It’s important that each stroke follows the same direction to move the fluid along. Use your favorite serum, mask, or moisturizer before you start. This aides in faster absorption into the skin and will glide across with ease. It also reduces friction so your jade roller can really work its magic. For extra cooling and soothing you could always put it in the refrigerator to help with those puffy eyes in the morning. Be sure to clean your roller with soap and water before and after every use to prevent the spread of bacteria.
I absolutely love using my rose quartz roller by Royal Jade Beauty. It’s quickly become one of my favorite holistic treatments when my skin is looking tired or dull. I highly encourage you to give it a try. You will get a feeling of refreshed lightness, relieved tension and deep facial relaxation. It’s the perfect addition to any beauty routine. What are you waiting for!
