Jade Rolling 101
Looking for a #DIY spa night treatment or a little pick me up before a night out? Try the tool everyone has been raving about, the Jade Roller! Jade rolling has just popped up in the USA market but is said to be linked to seventh century China where they believed the stone has healing and protective properties.
What is a Jade Roller?
A Jade Roller is a tool with two varying sizes of jade stone at the end that is rolled over the face and neck. These tools can be found on Amazon for as little as $7 but not every jade roller is the same! When purchasing, make sure to check that the stone is real jade so you get all of the benefits.
How do you use a Jade Roller?
Jade rolling is as simple as rolling the jade roller over your face. There is some technique to it though! Here are the steps we take when using our jade roller:
- Cleanse face an apply a moisturizer or serum
- Starting from your neck, roll the jade roller in an upward motion (gravity pulls down so always go up!)
- Roll in one spot 3 times before moving onto the next area until you get to your forehead.
Thats it! *Tip: If you want an extra cooling effect, put the jade roller in the fridge before you use it.
What are the benefits of using a Jade Roller?
Jade rolling over your face helps get rid of puffiness, boost circulation, is anti-inflammatory, and has a lymph-draining effect. The jade stone is naturally cold and gives you an immediate cooling effect.
