The jade roller has so many benefits, it is easy to use and simple to pack!
One of my favourite beauty tools to use, I use this with my face oils and serums. I travel with the roller in my bag at all times. The cool stone helps reduce puffiness which makes it great for using during or after flights.
The benefits include the following:
Improves blood flow + increases collagen production & skin elasticity. Jade is known as the stone of beauty and eternal youth in Chinese culture, 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.
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. Using a jade roller in conjunction with your other beauty products can actually make them work better. The tool helps your facial products penetrate deeper into your skin, rather than sitting on top of its outermost layer.
A jade roller can help to reduce common flair ups and headaches too. The stone allows for deep pressure that relieves muscle tension in and around the jaw, without slipping off the muscles that cause locking and misalignment.
Detoxifies the body by stimulating lymphatic drainage. The gentle massaging motion stimulates the lymphatic system and lymphatic drainage throughout your face. “Stimulating the lymphatic system cleanses the body of stagnant waste products, pathogens, and debris at a cellular level. It helps in the reduction of swelling, regenerates tissues caused by burning and scarring, and reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, insomnia, chronic pain, allergies, acne, and other conditions.” Think of the lymphatic system as the inner toilet system of your body—it is responsible for picking up practically all the body’s wastes as well as viruses and bacteria, which it transports to the lymph nodes to be broken down by immune cells. Sometimes due to injury, illness, physical inactivity or tension, the lymphatic system can get overwhelmed and backlogged, which can lead to immune problems, brain fog, achiness, or swelling. The jade roller helps to stimulate the lymphatic system and get your bodily fluids moving in all the right directions.
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.
