The year 2019 has been great for beauty and skincare junkies. We have seen various trends related to makeup, hair and skincare. One of such trends is Jade rolling. Jade roller is a handheld beauty tool that has jade stone usually at both ends. The stones are oval shaped, smooth and can easily glide across the face. Basically jade rolling was used in ancient Chinese by woman to balance their chi which is body energy force.
Does it really work?
According to Dermatologist, there isn’t any scientific studies that backs the claim regarding the effects jade roller has on skin, but they do agree that jade rolling does relax facial muscles, tone the face, help in lymphatic drainage and blood circulation. They also believe that if collagen stimulation is your goal that this isn’t the technique for you because it does not help in that area, other methods like derma rolling is more helpful for that.
- Reduces Puffiness
It is believed that jade rolling helps with lymphatic drainage, lymph fluid gathers in the face and around the eyes and contributes to puffy appearance. Jade rolling helps in reducing the puffiness
- Increases Blood Flow
the act of rolling the stone on the face basically massages the face which in turn encourages blood circulation and give a flushed youthful look, massage will also help in relieving tension in the face and give relaxation
- Reduces Under Eye Bag
The under eye bag that most of us wake up to is caused by the accumulation of fluid, this bags can be reduced with regular rolling of the jade, the small stone in the tool can easily be glided under the eyes
How to Use Jade Roller?
Jade rolling can be easily incorporated into your skincare regime, you can do it in the morning or evening or both. Rolling should be done upward and outward and each area should be included.
- Start with base of the neck, roll it upwards and downwards
- move to the chin area, roll in upwards and outwards motion
- next, move on to the lip area, start rolling from the corner of the lips towards the ear, on both sides
- keep on rolling on the upper lip area outwards, dont forget the skin around nostrils
- move on to the under eye area, since the skin here is sensitive, be very careful and use the smaller stone of the roller. Keep the motion outwards here as well
- On the forehead, roll it away from the face towards your hairline, start from the middle of the forehead and gradually cover the rest of it.
Ideally you should apply a face serum beforehand so that the product can easily absorb into your skin or you can also apply a sheet mask and roll on top of it.
Bonus Tip: Put the roller in the fridge for 15 minutes before use, the cold jade stone will work more effectively!
