Revitalize Your Skin with J A D E Rolling

Jade rollers have been around for centuries; there's evidence as far back as seventh-century China, where the stone is referred to as the ‘stone of heaven’ or ‘the emperor’s stone’ and is a symbol of purity, health, and spirituality. Only the emperors and empresses could afford to use it. Jade is believed to have healing properties, as it expels toxins, heals stressed organs, revitalizes the Qi in the body, and slows down prematurely aging skin cells.

The mechanism is downright basic: a miniature paint roller - but rather than a sponge at the end, there's an oblong piece of pure jade. Many versions are dual-ended, one containing a larger sized stone (forehead, cheeks, jawline, and neck) and one containing a smaller stone (under eyes.). Some versions also feature a textured surface, which increases the massage factor. 

The same way that a deep tissue session can leave your body feeling relaxed and refreshed, massaging the lymphatic system is key to helping our face move the excess water, which causes the puffiness. When lymph is flowing freely in the face, you’ll have clearer, healthier skin without a buildup of toxins and fluids.

Anyone who has ever had a professional facial can attest to the amazing feeling of getting your face massaged. Putting pressure on certain points of your face can relieve tension. Think about all the teeth clenching, squinting, and straining you do all day. The pressure the jade puts on certain angles of your face promotes circulation, which plumps and firms skin and is a major contributor to that clean-living, eight-hours-of-sleep glow we're all striving for.

Sometimes darker pigmentation is genetic. A jade roller can help with draining the extra fluid that collects around your eyes and cheeks. Lymphatic fluid is waste that is flowing out of your lymph nodes and needs to be returned back to the cardiovascular system. You can deal with the awful bags and darkness combo with jade rolling. The cooling sensation can make the underlying blood vessels smaller. Store it in the fridge or freezer for an extra chilly pop of puff-fighting, but even a room temperature tool will be pleasantly cool, warming slightly as you work.

Using a jade roller as a follow-up to skincare products helps the ingredients soak in better so they can, in turn, do their jobs better. Any sort of occlusion can increase absorption of a product, meaning it will help boost the effectiveness of them. As an avid rose-hip oil user, I can definitely feel a difference in the way my face feels the morning after an application. Faster absorption means less waste and way more effectiveness! 

how to use a jade roller

 Jade rolling isn’t for all skin types. If you already have a lot of inflammation, or a skin condition such as Eczema or Rosacea, jade rolling probably isn’t for you. You don’t want to increase more circulation than you already have.
