Scroll on to get the lowdown on facial massages and jade rollers!
Prep Your Skin:
Before you reach for your roller, you’ll want to prep your face. You can easily squeeze a facial massage into your nighttime skincare routine by using a jade roller after you’ve applied your favorite serum or night cream to your skin. Looking for a morning perk? Wake up and roll to nix puffy skin and give your face an instant jolt, or use the roller to spread your serums evenly across your skin before moving on to your moisturizer.
Begin With Your Neck:
Apply gentle pressure to your neck and slowly move upwards. You’ll want to target the sides of your neck and just under your jawline. Press and move slowly up your neck and to the base of your chin. This soft massage gives your neck a stress-relieving massage, while also promoting circulation, which helps with pesky puffiness in your face.
Transition To Your Face:
Now it’s time for your facial muscles to get in on the action. Whether you’re rolling your cheeks, chin, or forehead, you’ll want to roll outwards, away from the center of your face, towards your hairline, to really get your circulation going. Start on either side of your nose, pushing outwards as you roll.
Use the small stone for your eye area:
If you’ve got a double-sided roller, switch over to the small stone. The added dexterity makes it easy to target any puffy under-eye circles. Simply roll from the inner corner of your eye out. Since the skin under and above your eyes is extra delicate, you’ll want to use caution when treating these areas–no pressing too hard or rough movements!
Clean Your Roller:
If you used your roller to apply moisturizer or serums, you’ll want to sanitize your roller with soapy water before you tuck it away for later use. Squirt some gentle soap or baby shampoo onto the stone, then roll it under warm water. Finally, roll it out on a towel to dry.
