Are you facing issues related to dull complexion, fine lines, dark circles or uneven skin? There could be two major reasons for these kinds of issues- firstly, Hyperpigmentation (which is due to excessive melanin production in the skin) and others include hereditary skin conditions to lifestyle choices, acne and scarring and hormonal changes; and secondly, extreme fatigue or abnormal bedtime can cause dark circles to form under your eyes. Sleep deprivation can cause your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show. So, how does Face Roller help? Read on to find out!
What are Face Rollers?
For the past couple of years, the beauty enthusiasts and celeb among us are rolling, but with jade and rose quartz facial rollers.The seemingly hottest coolest trend in the cosmetic industry is actually one of the oldest. The use of jade is steeped in Chinese history, adorning dressing tables and playing a role in ancient remedies, it symbolizes longevity and grace. Rose quartz, heralded as the stone of love and healing (both emotionally and having a believed effect on wrinkles), has usage dating back to Roman and Egyptian times.
These rollers are believed to have healing and protective properties for the skin, including boosting blood circulation, reducing swelling, and allowing for deeper penetration of skincare products. Some facial rollers have a smaller roller at the bottom of the handle too, which can be great to use on smaller areas of the face.
Get That Jade Roller Rolling! In Your Daily Skincare Routine
Here’s how we should use it:
- Start at the center of your chin, rolling out and up toward your ear. Then move the roller up to the side of your mouth and repeat. Repeat again, starting this time at the side of the nose.
- Roll it under your eye, moving it horizontally toward your temple, and repeat it on your eyelid.
- On your forehead, roll it up from your brow to your hairline. Then roll it horizontally out toward your temple. Finally, repeat on the other side of your face.
- Keep your face roller in your refrigerator so that it is cold and refreshing. Jade rolling works best if you think of it as a massage tool: Roll back and forth, up and down and side to side, working around your facial contours and adding a little more pressure with the upwards motions.
So, do jade rollers work?
Face rollers are used to massage the face and improve circulation. Discover why we’re hauling the jade roller as your newest skincare bolt-on.
It soothes your skin: Face rollers made of jade may cool the skin on contact. Jade is one of the only gemstones that remains cool when applied to the skin, and it can calm sensitive areas of the face.
It may help clear sinuses: Sinus congestion happens when fluid becomes trapped in the sinuses, making them feel blocked and painful. Massaging your face with a roller gently moves the lymph and may provide relief from this condition.
It can contour the face: The roller can temporarily shape your face. Rolling the tool up at an angle and then pushing it downward by the ear helps to drain fluid from the face. It helps direct excess fluid to the lymph nodes, making your skin look firmer.
What’s the difference between rose quartz rollers and jade rollers?
A few one-ups rose quartz rollers have on jade:
Rose quartz has inherent minerals- silicium, magnesium, iron, sodium and oxygen- that skin can topically borrow and benefit from when rolling.
Rose quartz stays cool whereas jade is adaptive in nature and tends to warm with skin contact.
Rose quartz is better known for its wrinkle-reducing benefits.
Because jade is a soft stone and can encounter wear and tear with repeated use, a rose quartz roller may last you longer (trust us, we did a drop test).
