Jade rollers are nothing new. This handheld skincare tool has been a staple item in traditional beauty practices for many centuries. And you have the option of choosing between rose quartz or solid jade stone.
The mechanism resembles a paint roller, with two stones of different sizes attached on both ends. The larger stone is meant to be used on larger areas of the face, like the forehead, cheeks, and jaw. Whereas the smaller stone is designed to be rolled over the smaller areas or more delicate parts of your face – the area under the eyes and around the mouth.
Benefits of Using a Jade Roller
The basic premise behind using a jade roller is that it provides us with a more effective form of facial massage. More specifically, it can gently massage the lymphatic system to facilitate the drainage of toxins from the body while reducing any sort of puffiness.
Another benefit of incorporating this tool into your skincare regimen is that it boosts circulation by promoting blood flow beneath the skin’s surface.
TL;DR: A jade roller can support our skin health in a number of ways:
- Compared to using our hands, it’s a more effective form of facial massage
- With the right amount of pressure, this tool encourages the natural detox process of the lymphatic system
- Stimulates blood flow to give us a brighter complexion
- Evens out your skin tone
- The cool surface of the stone has a soothing, calming effect on the skin
What’s the difference between rose quartz and jade stone?
Crystal-infused beauty tools (well, anything crystal-infused really) are definitely having a moment. And rightfully so, since their natural healing properties have the ability to support our skin health while promoting a greater sense of mental and spiritual well-being.
The restorative qualities of jade stone extend to warding off negative energy and restoring balance to the chi.
But there are a number of advantages to choosing a rose quartz roller:
- A rose quartz roller may hold greater longevity since jade is a softer stone
- Rose quartz contains minerals like sodium, silicium, magnesium, iron, and oxygen which can provide our skin with additional benefits through the rolling process
Skincare benefits aside, adding this tool into your routine gives you a good reason to indulge in a relaxing self-care session every night.
How to use
Start off with clean skin! It’s best to use your roller before applying any skincare products on your face, but you can definitely add in a bit of face oil during the rolling process.
The key here is to apply gentle pressure to your roller – making sure you’re always rolling away from the bridge of your nose in all directions (in an outwards motion). To facilitate the drainage of toxins, you want to gradually extend the massage along your jaw and down your neck in a downwards and outwards motion.
