I’m on an eternal quest for perfect skin and I’m a sucker for simple inexpensive easy to use tips and tricks. I was introduced to the Jade roller by another makeup artist friend. Jade is said to have healing powers, and was used by the Ancient Chinese to help achieve smooth, youthful skin. Apparently it’s said that jade rollers have been found in tombs dating back to the 12th century. But does this ancient mythical tool really work?
Improve blood circulation and skin tone.
Promote lymphatic drainage
Reduce puffiness and wrinkles
Improve elasticity of the skin
Reduce dark circles
Tighten pores, the roller remains cold even when on the skin.
They say its good for sinus problems, headaches and hangovers.
How to use it:
Jade rollers are quick and easy to use, you want to roll it upwards and outwards. Traditionally they say to start on the right side because that is how the body energy flows. You can also use these on the eye area going outward, upwards on the neck and outward from the chin along the jaw line. If you like it extra cold you can leave it in the fridge before use, it feels refreshing and works great if you are a little puffy in the morning. For more tips check out this video.
I really like using the jade roller. I have found that it helps absorb product into the skin and can help eliminate puffy eyes especially cooled. Before the shower I always like to use a body brush to help my lymphatic system and get out the toxins I like that this helps promote lymphatic drainage on the face. I would suggest using a light touch when first getting your skin use to the jade roller. I find my self using it at night with my facial oil and then again when I apply my moisturizer. If I can remember to stick it in the fridge I like using a cool roller on my skin in the am to help wake me up. This roller in particular that I used is good because it has two sizes on either end, one is perfect for the eyes and around the nose and the other side is the perfect size for your face.
