Health + Beauty: Jade Rolling 101
Written by: Allison Swan
Jade rollers are the beauty tool that's everywhere these days. If you're not sure what the hype is about, or if you picked one up and have no idea how to use it, these tips are for you!
It's said that jade rollers have been around for centuries and were originally used by Chinese royalty and high society members for its purifying properties and ability to heal and restore skin. The larger stone is for larger areas of the face like the cheeks, jaw, and forehead, while the smaller stone is for hard to reach places like the mouth and under the eyes.
Boost your skincare routine by rolling your jade roller all over your face to increases circulation, decrease puffiness and blemishes, minimize lines, and making your daily serums go deeper into your skin. This gentle face massage also gives your neglected facial muscles some TLC.
The proper way to use your jade roller is on clean skin. Store your roller in the fridge so it's nice and cold, relieving any swelling. Before rolling, apply any moisturizers and serums so that your skin can really drink them up. Roll from the center of your face outwards using upward strokes, never rolling backwards. Go over the same patch of skin three to four times.
Since this beauty tool is touching all over your face daily, you'll want to keep it clean. Your final step should always be cleaning it with warm, soapy water.
The final result is smooth, flawless, glowing skin!
