I think it is safe to say that many skin care ‘secrets’ are hundreds if not thousands of years old. The older the tool I am thinking the more natural it is right? The jade roller is just this; a completely natural stone that is practically magic on your face!
I am sure some of you are already jade-roller gurus, but for those who are just hearing about it now, let me tell you, IT IS INCREDIBLE! I started using a jade roller only about a month ago and I am noticing my skin is already less puffy than it was before, notably in the ‘under eye’ areas. Another thing is that I love to use it when I am having some ‘me time’. I find that calming my skin helps me with stress. I guess it is because we can hold a lot of stress in our faces right, all scrunched up and what-not. The jade roller just helps drain all the stress.
So what is it exactly?
It essentially looks like a little paint roller with two pieces of jade on either side. One smaller and one more broad. Jade is a semi-precious stone that has been used for thousands of years in many cultures but especially in that of Chinese; it was used in ancient times by wealthy Chinese women to boost their skin by doing jade stone massages.
How to use it?
Start with the roller in the middle of your face and roll out and up! You can start in the middle of the nose, chin and forehead and roll out. The up is especially around the eyes if you know what I mean 🙂 I also recommend rolling on the neck; there we roll DOWNWARDS. It is super easy to use, and really zero preparation. I like to just keep my roller on the bedside table and roll when I wake up and when I go to bed.
What are the benefits?
Where do I begin, it does everything you would want from an expensive facial treatment. This you do daily (or more) and it won’t set you back much at all! So check this list out–>
- Improves blood circulation
