Jade Roller: The Natural Stone To De-Puff and De-Stress your Skin
What if we told you, there is a little tool you can buy that imitates the sensation of an aesthetician’s cold hands massaging your skin? Well, there is... the jade roller.
Jade is really good for evening your skin tone, for cooling and calming the skin, it's a way of treating yourself to a daily facial. A jade roller gives a cool surface that’s super smooth and allows you to access into muscles and tissues with a pressure. With this in mind, it can provide a more effective manual massage than your hands alone, while being gentle and safeThe beauty benefits
The main benefits of self-massage using a jade roller are that of “drainage”, by way of encouraging the lymphatic system’s natural detoxification process, and “brightening” – by boosting the circulation and blood flow beneath the skin granting a visible glow.
How to practice jade rolling
Put your roller in the freezer a few hours before you want to use it (or keep it in there next to your smoothie ingredients until you’re ready to use it).
Cleanse your face.
Apply a serum, moisturizer, or a mask.
Start rolling! Either start at the chest or the forehead, using outward and upward motions doing about three up-and-out passes per area. Roll for about 2 minutes.
If you applied a mask and it starts to get sticky, that's a good sign, it means the product is being pushed down into your skin, spray a little mist on your face to re-activate the mask.
If you applied a clear serum or moisturizer, you’ll see your face start to flush. This is also good—it means you’re increasing the circulation to your face and helping with cell rebuilding, collagen boosting, and lymphatic drainage.
Wipe your face clean. Then follow up with a serum or moisturizer again.
Then you’re done! There’s no harm in rolling every day, but it’s most commonly done three or four times a week. And in a wellness pinch, you can also roll the cool jade over your temples and sinuses to ease a headache—or over your jaw to destress.
