Jade and rose quartz facial rollers are a pretty trendy product lately. And guess who got one from Santa? Yours truly!
Jade is a symbol of harmony, peace and beauty. It is said to draw out negative energy and balance your chi. While this is a beauty ritual of Chinese royalty going back centuries, its the massaging effects more so then the stone composition that make it a good habit.
A roller provides a facial massage that can do a lot including:
Evenly distribute product over the entire face
Drain the lymphatic system
Increase blood flow
Reduce under eye circles
Soothe facial tension
For crystal enthusiasts, jade is said to stimulate the meridian points of the face, which are energy lines that connect to our internal systems.
When you touch the jade gemstones to these points, it energizes them. It also connects these points on the face to earth energy, something we aren’t often able to do. Wow, talk about grounding/hj.
To use this product, moisturize with your favorite oil, serum or moisturizer. Then gently roll outwards towards your ears and jawbone on one side of your face and repeat on the other side. Directional movement helps counteract gravity and lift the skin. There are no clinical studies that prove benefits, but I do have to say it feels pretty good. This has been a great addition to my nighttime routine or when I use a sheet mask. Especially for this winter season, as we wait for a vaccine, the self care continues my friends!
Put it in the fridge if you want an effective cooling treatment to reduce puffiness. Away with slime-y cucumbers!
To clean a roller, wipe the stone with a cloth or wash the stones with warm soapy water. Do not submerge the roller entirely in water. Pat dry with a clean cloth.
