If your Instagram feed is full of skincare tutorials and skincare products, then you must certainly have an interest in skincare. Skincare is a huge industry and is growing at an exponential rate as we speak. From the serums to moisturisers to the at home derma rollers and treatments, to the jade and face rollers that skincare enthusiasts swear by; all the information you need to get your skin glowing is available in abundance online.
No matter what your skin type, we are always being told how important it is to care for your skin and all the ways in which we can enhance our youthful skin. Everyone swears by a different skincare routine and different things work for different people. There’s a different skincare routine for the day time and a different one for the night. How you go about caring for your skin is your call, but the one product you need to add to your skincare regimen is the jade roller and we’re here to tell you why.
Jade rollers have fast become one of the most covetable tools in the beauty world of late. The two-sided tool stimulates circulation in your face and relaxes the muscles that have been working all day long. The naturally cooling sensation of the jade stone soothes inflammation and depuffs the skin naturally. We’ve rounded up some benefits of the jade roller and you’ll soon want one if you don’t already have one!
It is free of additives and is chemical-free
We think this is one of the biggest benefits of using a jade roller. There are absolutely no additives or chemicals in the jade roller and it is just a pure stone that will penetrate the surface layer of the skin. It contains no sulphates, parabens or synthetic fragrances and is safe for any skin type to use. Each roller also comes in its unique colour, form and patterns.
It soothes the skin
The jade roller is pleasant to the touch when you massage it all over your face. The jade is so smooth that it easily glides across your skin, especially if you have a moisturiser or oil on it. Unlike when you massage your face with your fingers, the jade roller won’t tug and pull at your skin. This will preserve the elasticity and keep wrinkles at bay. One end is larger and used on the forehead, cheeks and jawline, while the other end is smaller and designed more specifically for the delicate areas around the eyes where the skin is thinner and more delicate. This area is also more prone to visible signs of aging, like crow’s feet and fine lines.
Smooths out your skin
Your face contains 42 different muscles many of which become tense owing to the expressions we make; such as squinting, furrowing the brow or raising the eyebrows and forehead. This can lead to the creation of deep lines being formed on the skin’s surface. The gentle massage action of the jade roller does the job of relaxing the muscles and relieves strain and lines. Helping the muscles to relax with a jade roller massage will make your skin smoother and give you a more youthful complexion.
Gives you that extra glow
Another benefit of the jade roller is that it increases the circulation and blood flow to your skin. Increased circulation leads to an increased amount of oxygen and nutrients flowing to your skin’s surface. This increased blood flow to the skin can last over 10 minutes after just a five minute massage. This gives you a rosy, dewy and glowy complexion. Additionally, the roller can also be used on the sides of your neck to help massage and promote better circulation in the lymph areas where toxins can build up.
Gives your skincare products a boost
You could be using the most expensive skin care products but unless they properly absorb into your skin they won’t be effective. The jade roller has the ability to work simultaneously with your serums, oils and creams by making the absorption process more efficient. While the jade roller can be used on bare skin prior to applying your skincare products, you can also use it immediately after applying your products to help work them further into your skin.
The skin under our eyes and around the cheeks can become especially puffy when we wake up. Using a jade roller can stimulate lymphatic drainage and reduce the puffiness. The stone is naturally cool to the touch and stays relatively cool even when it is being massaged on your skin. Here’s an extra tip: put your jade roller in the fridge 5-10 minutes before you’re going to use it and then use it to massage your face all over from your forehead down to your neck. Your skin will feel oh so soothed!
