If you have been scrolling on Instagram recently, you may have come across another crystal skincare trend – the Face Roller.
They are typically made from materials such as jade, rose quartz, or some other fashionably colored crystal and definitely make for a beautiful photo. So it’s no wonder facial rollers have drastically increased in popularity over the past year. The simple concept of rolling some jade over your face seems easy enough, but do facial rollers “really” work?
Do Jade Rollers Really Work?
Reduction of inflammation and puffiness:
Sometimes, you wake up, and your face is a little swollen, and your eyes are a little full. The roller could help move some of that lymphatic fluid and remove some of the inflammation or swelling.
Prevents fluid retention and decreases puffy under eyes:
Jade rollers are great for puffiness and redness. The jade stone is cool to the touch, which can be soothing on the skin. It can help calm and even out your complexion, too. Jade rollers can make your skin noticeably less puffy, which helps to define your cheekbones, jawline, and brows.
Relieves facial muscles + makes your beauty products work better:
Our facial muscles store a lot of tension. This tension can cause wrinkles and fine lines, especially around our forehead and eyes. Massaging your face with a jade roller instantly helps to iron out these kinks, especially along your brow and jawline—so you’re not just immediately giving your skin a boost, but also preventing wrinkles down the line
Also, using a jade roller in conjunction with your other beauty products can actually make them work better. Start by cleansing your face (if you’re looking for a great new cleanser, here’s our favorites.) Then, apply a facial oil or serum, grab your jade from the fridge, and start rolling. The tool helps your facial products penetrate deeper into your skin, rather than sitting on top of its outermost layer.
Improves blood flow + increases collagen production & skin elasticity:
Jade is known as the stone of beauty and eternal youth, and rolling it across your skin moves stagnant Qi (energy) and toxins, stimulates blood circulation, and increases the proportion of elastin and collagen in your skin. Beauty experts recommend keeping your jade roller in the fridge to reap max skin tightening benefits, and the added cooling factor perks you right up in the morning.
