Although it seems to be yet another beauty trend coming from the East, jade stones have been part of human routines and rituals for centuries. The jade face roller is the perfect tool to accomplish a simple and soothing self-care beauty routine.
Let’s talk about its properties.
The use of the jade stone is not new, but the new wave of advocates of its use on the beauty industry has more to do with its real properties than to a fashion or a trend.
According to The Pocket Book of Stones, “Jade is a symbol of serenity and purity. It signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility. It increases love and nurturing. A protective stone, jade keeps the wearer from harm and brings harmony”.
Funny enough, jade is also known as the eternal youth stone. This can be taken in an esoteric and also in a physical way. Because of its mineral composition, jade stones are quick to cool down, which in direct contact with skin will help it to reduce bloating.
How does a jade face roller work?
As we said before, jade can get cold really quickly. It also can be polished in an extremely soft surface. These two characteristics make this crystal the perfect material for a face roller that would help your skin to look and stay younger and firmer.
One of my favorite side-effects is how well it works over facial redness, calming it up.
It can effectively drain the lymphatic system and boost your blood circulation. It can also lessen the tension in your facial muscles, which makes it a wonderful beauty tool that will smooth out wrinkles.
Although its tightener effects are temporary due to warmer body temperature and micro-gestures, the repeated exercises help the skin and muscles look smoother over time consequently.
The roller usually comes with two stones in different sizes, one larger than the other: for the larger areas you use the bigger roller, while the small roller is for more specific areas such as the skin surrounding the eyes and the mouth.
I love to use it after applying my night and day moisturizers. The rolling movements help the product to get absorbed quicker and easier by my skin, as a result, I get better results with them.
However, to keep your jade roller in the most pristine condition, don’t expose it to strong and harsh chemicals. Clean it with warm water and mild soap, and then dry it with a soft cloth after washing.
