Benefits of a Jade Roller?
The idea behind it is fairly simple: Jade is relatively cool to the touch, and has the ability to stay cool. This cooling helps with brightening your complexion, reducing puffiness, stimulating lymphatic drainage, and promoting blood circulation.Healthy blood circulation carries oxygen to skin cells, and it will also help penetrate products deeper into skin tissue. In that way, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles. People who use jade rollers tout their ability to help with lymphatic massages. The design of the roller itself helps, as it is a component of dual ends, where one side is a large oval stone, and the other side is a smaller circular stone. The different sizes allow for proper rolling coverage on different areas of the face,” says Krueger.It’s also important to note that like many other skin care trends, a jade roller isn’t for everyone. Avoid using the roller if you are having any types of skin rashes or cold sores, and also acneic skin should avoid it, since the jade roller can spread bacteria around. You should also make sure you sanitize your roller with mild soap in between uses.
- Neck: “I like to work from my neck upwards. Use the large oval side and roll up and down the neck, from one side to the other with medium pressure, to kick-start the lymphatic system.”
- Jawline: “Still using the large oval side, move to the mandibular bone (jawline), and start at the center of your chin. Work from the middle of the chin across towards your earlobe, and do five to six passes on each area as you work up the face. Repeat on the other side.”
- Forehead: “Next, move to the forehead, this time using the larger oval side. Start at the center. Work from the center across towards your outer temples, doing five to seven passes, and repeat on the other side. Then, cross by starting at the brows, and move upwards towards the hairline. Move it across the forehead.”
- Eyes: “Using the smaller end with medium pressure, gently roll from the inner corner towards the outer corner, up towards the brow bone. Make sure to get the undereye area and crow’s feet. Roll back and forth, about 10 times. Repeat on the other side.”
