Everything You Need to Know About Jade Rollers

Thinking about including a beauty tool in your beauty routine? Jade rollers could be the answer. Here’s what you need to know. 

If you follow beauty trends closely on social media, it would have been hard to miss the jade roller’s rise in popularity. While it might have only surfaced in the Western beauty world in recent years, the tiny beauty tool – a double-ended roller made from jade stone – has, in fact, been around in China since the 7th century. 

So what do jade rollers actually claim to do? According to the beauty experts, jade rollers are often used to decrease puffiness in the face and dark circles under the eyes, as well as minimising the effects of fine lines.

If you’re looking for a relaxing at-home face massage, a jade roller can tick that box. Rolling one up and down your face provides a stimulating massage, both the motion and coolness of the stone relaxing the facial muscles. This massaging technique can help with draining of lymph fluid from around your eyes and certain areas where it tends to settle, and into the proper channels.

This lymphatic drainage may also help to prevent and clear breakouts. The massaging motion of the roller can stimulate certain hormones, which can help lower stress levels. Which can, in turn, affect reduce acne.

Using a jade roller also does wonders for your circulation as they’re great for bringing fresh blood and oxygen to the skin.

How to Use Jade Rollers

Before you use your jade roller, cleanse your face. You can then roll bare skin or you can apply skincare which the jade roller can help work into your complexion.

You might be relying on your jade roller to help depuff your face, but to do just that you actually need to start with your neck. For your jade roller to help rid your face of puffiness, your lymph nodes need to filter excess fluid out of your system. Rolling your neck first with soft sweeping motions will help to clear the lymph passageways for this to happen.

Once you’ve rolled your neck, start on your jawline, rolling and back and forth from the centre of your chin up towards your ear. Repeat all the way up to your cheekbones. Once you reach your forehead start in the centre and roll your way outwards. Flip your jade roller over and use the smaller roller underneath your eyes.

While it can be tempting to apply more pressure to get the most out of your at-home massage, it’s best to use a light touch. Applying too much pressure can actually irritate your skin.

Jade, Amethyst, Rose Quartz – What’s The Difference?

While jade rollers might have originally caught the attention of beauty fanatics around the globe, today you can take your pick of crystal roller. Jade, rose quartz and amethyst are three of the common crystals you’ll come across when hunting for a face roller.

All three get the same job done, however, the crystals do have slightly different properties. Jade, for example, conducts heat better which means unlike rose quartz, which tends to stay cooler for longer, it warms up quickly to your skin’s temperature.
