Jade Face Roller
This facial roller is made of pure, natural jade stone which has been ethically mined from the rivers of East Asia. Known as the “imperial gem” in ancient China, the green jade stone is considered to be a lucky stone and is often associated with good health and wealth. It is known to be useful for treating stress and anxiety, as well as strengthening the immune system.
When used for facial massages, this healing mineral reduces inflammation of the skin and depuffs the under-eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. The jade face roller also allows skincare products to better absorb into the skin, while toning the face and improving blood circulation. Some of its other benefits are the ability to brighten skin complexion, and minimize large pores.
Massages with a jade face roller are good for stimulating the lymphatic system, which boosts the drainage of lymph nodes. This is especially beneficial, since hindered lymphatic drainage can lead to puffiness and swelling, which is something nobody wants. That is why the jade face roller is the perfect tool to reduce puffiness and make the face appear slimmer and more toned! Aside from all these benefits, using this tool is a lovely way to wind down and relax before bedtime, or get your blood flowing in the morning.
How to Use
Prepare your skin for the massage by cleaning it thoroughly and applying a serum, moisturizer, or oil.
Start the process by rolling at the neck area using the larger stone, and continue moving upwards.
Roll back and forth across the jawline and cheeks, starting from the center of the face towards the ears and hairline.
Use the smaller stone to gently roll around your eyes, starting from the inner corner and move outwards.
Using the larger stone again, roll vertically on the forehead, starting from the center and move outwards.
Switch to the smaller stone again, and roll up-and-down the nose moving in a horizontal motion.
