Jade rollers aren't a technical invention in skincare. They've been an essential in Chinese skincare routines since the 7th century, and are believed to have soothing and protective properties. Jade rollers are about as effective as any form of facial massage when done properly The handheld massagers are typically dual-ended with two jade stone heads that allegedly increase blood circulation, reduce swelling, and help your skincare products penetrate deeper. Here are some uses and benefits of face rollers. You can also choose write one crystal is right for your skin.
How to use?
Now let's come to be into the fun stuff! First, you'll need just a few tools: a face wash, moisturizer/facial oil and a jade roller. I'm passionate with facial oil and the jade roller I have! Once you have those collected, it's time to get rolling!
Wash that lovely face of yours! You want a clean face before you jade roll.
Moisturize! I like to use facial oil because it adds even more moisture, but if those don't work for your skin, you can just use whatever moisturizer you like best.
Roll it out! If you use a face roller in combination with your other skincare products, the tool will not just slide easier. It can also help your preferred facial oil or serum reach deeper into your skin, rather than sitting on top of its outermost layer.
Here's the procedure that I follow to jade roll my face:
1. Cheeks & jaw:
Place the large end of the jade roller on your chin, apply average pressure and roll it towards your ear. Repeat in the same spot 4 – 5 times, then move up along your cheek. Repeat on the opposite side.
Next, move up to your forehead. Starting in the middle of your forehead, use the large end to roll to your ears. Repeat in the same motion 5 – 6 times then switch to the opposite side of your forehead.
3. Under eyes:
Using the small end, apply medium pressure and roll from the inner eye towards to outer corner. Repeat 5 – 10 times and switch to the other eye.
Follow the same method as the under eyes, just above the eyes!
5. Crow’s feet:
Use the small end, apply medium pressure and move the small end of the roller rapidly up and down on the corner of your eye. Repeat on the other side.
I always finish off using the small end of the roller to dig deep into the join of my jaw. I press hard, move back and forth and then use fast rolling on spots that feel especially tight. And that's it!!
Benefits of face rollers
Jade has long been recognized as an important semi-precious stone in traditional Chinese medicine, as it’s believed to have soothing and healing properties. Whether you believe that stones and crystals can have this effect on the skin and well-being or not, the act of rolling it across your skin really does have many beautifying benefits If you haven’t used this unique skincare tool before, you’ll be surprised by the benefits it has for your skin and soon will understand why it’s an essential in your skincare routine.
· Increases blood circulation.
· It decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
· Improves tone by increasing lymphatic drainage (like a fingertip massage) as it reduces the blood vessels and appearance of pores. The face roller gets rid of puffiness and acts on the lymphatic system as a real life “pump”. If your lymphatic system is functional, then the cells, epidermis and dermis are nourished and your complexion healthy.
· Helps your regular skincare products penetrate deeper into the skin.
· Minimizes spots around the chin and jawline caused by toxins.
· It removes toxins by accelerating the skin cell renewal process.
· Reduces headache and sinus pain.
To get the best results we recommend using the roller after cleansing your skin or getting out of the shower. Although you'll start to see amazing results with continued daily use, massaging your face with a jade roller can instantly relieve tension by running it along your brows and jawline.
