If you are someone who is up to date with the current beauty trends on social media, there is no way you have missed the facial rollers that are appearing all over your feed. For the past year, these facial rollers typically made from jade or an imitation jade-like stone are being picked up by a whole lot of influencers and bloggers. These facial rollers, although only popping up in our lives now, it has been around for centuries. It was first originated in China, and it is believed that the stone can heal and protect. The real question is - how well can it heal and protect our skin?
The jade roller is a follow-up skin care product that helps your skin soak in the products you use. It will help your skin absorb the skin care products you use. You will no longer feel bad for putting on that $100 night serum and somehow get residue on your pillowcase - because with the roller the serum will actually be absorbed in.
This little thing does more than just one thing. The natural material of jade is a cool touch which helps with depuffing. The healers of the stone can also be used to ward off stress and anxiety. The effect varies amongst one and another, but this is a great alternative for someone who leans toward the chemical-free beauty regimen. Another health benefit that the roller can help with is detoxifying. By rolling against your face, it helps increase circulation and the lymphatic system carry away toxins. This will overall increase blood and lymph flow. The renewal of cells will then get rid of toxins at a quicker rate. This then brings more oxygen, and at the end, will help improve your skin tone. This is also an anti-aging property. By keeping the skin healthy, you will start to notice less puffiness, decrease in lines, tightening in skin and muscle tone through the massage action.
Sounds magical? Another great thing is that it is so convenient to use. This little thing will definitely fit in your purse and only takes up less than 5 minutes of your day. Pull it out while you are watching Netflix or you are sitting around waiting. For some, the improvement may show within a day or two, some may take a week or so. If you are looking to cure a swelling area, it is likely you will see the result right away!
Start with the chin area and roll horizontally out to the hairline. Then, you can move up to the nose area and roll from the corner of the nose towards the ear. You can also use it from the inner corner of the eye (recommend using the small end for this). Then, move towards the eyebrows and down to the temples. Lastly, upwards to the hairline and across the forehead. The pressure should be light and gentle.
The cost of a facial roller is surprisingly inexpensive considering it is not something you will have to replace often, they are often very high quality and will last you a lifetime. Starting from $8.99 for a jade facial roller or if you want to be a bit more fancy with the rose quartz facial roller it is only a dollar more.
