It seems like jade rolling is all the rage at the moment and it's no surprise with the rave reviews it's had! Ever since highlighters made their way to the top of the beauty chain, people have been trying to find ways to brighten their skin naturally, using all sorts of lotions, potions and devices. Although Jade Rolling may be a new concept to most, Chinese royalty have been using the stone for centuries to get their glow and heal their chi.

So basically, Jade is associated with protecting against negative energy and balancing your chi and according to Chinese medicine (where this whole idea seems to have originated from) tons of physical and mental symptoms, e.g. tiredness, pain and anxiety, can indicate that your chi is a little off! It’s a great solution to try out if you’re a big believer in giving natural solutions a go. Now that's all good and well if you're into your stones and spirituality (it definitely intrigues me) but even if you're not, there are plenty of physical benefits to Jade Rolling!

If you hadn't guessed by now, Jade Rolling is basically a device that allows you to simply roll a Jade stone across your face, which is said to increase blood circulation, helps with lymphatic drainage, reduces the appearance of fine lines, help the production of collagen and apparently banishes under eye circles(?!) – if this bit is true then I’m definitely game. If that isn't enough for you, it helps your skincare products penetrate your skin that little bit more! Of course you can use the roller on its own which will help with blood circulation, but it seems that people favor pairing it with their favorite moisturizer or serum which I guess kills two birds with one stone! To use it for maximum effect you need to start rolling upwards from your neck (which is always just as important as your face) towards your forehead – I don’t know the science behind it but it’s a common fact I’ve found.
From what I’ve seen myself, it’s rave reviews definitely base off of the fact that it helps banish under eye circles (I suffer terribly so I’m willing to try any solution) and people seem to be living for it. When it comes to using it for your under eyes I’ve seen a couple of different methods but I guess it’s all about what works best for you and figuring out what’s the most comfortable. Of course, with so many people claiming it to be a miracle worker, it must really work miracles (I mean I wouldn’t be shouting from the rooftops unless it made a huge noticeable difference). But that said, I can’t find any comparison photos in my search but if you have a scout over a few blogs you’ll get the gist of the general reaction Jade Rolling is getting!
So there you have it, a little bit of information and a few benefits of Jade Rolling. I think it's safe to say that even if you're not too into spiritual stuff, you can’t really go wrong with picking one up for yourself! Prices do vary quite a bit but even the most expensive options don’t fall into the ‘luxury/high end’ range, so perfect for those on a budget and even more reason to pick one up! Oh and if you do, have a go at keeping your Jade Roller in the fridge. The stone is naturally cold but the added temperature drop is said to make it more refreshing!
