WHAT IS A JADE ROLLER AND HOW DOES IT WORK
Just like Gua Sha face tools, face rollers come from Chinese Traditional Medicine, these rollers are usually made out of crystals. Rollers are usually made of out jade because it particularly targets the skin and increases circulation. They can also be made of rose quartz or amethyst, depending on what add-on you’d want from the stone itself.
What are the Benefits of a Jade Roller
Starting the day with using a jade roller is an amazing way to wake your skin up as it will help depuff your skin and help with blood and fluid circulation. Using a jade roller daily will help break down fluids you’ve built up in your skin, get rid of toxins and with lymphatic drainage. Using a Jade Roller for 10 minutes everyday can make a big difference and will make your skin glow.
It’s best to use a jade roller with a serum or an oil, that will make the product work with your skin better and it’s also better to have a layer between your skin and the actual face tool. Your skin is quite sensitive and fragile, so using a tool on bare skin may cause a little damage because of the friction.
How to use a Jade Roller
Before you use your jade roller, make sure it has been cleaned with rubbing alcohol. It's important to clean it because the last thing you'd want from a beauty face tool would be to transfer bacteria onto your skin. Store it in the fridge overnight or 30 minutes before you use it. Some people like to run it under water before they start using the roller on their face, to amplify the effects of the crystal.
When using a face tool like a jade roller or a gua sha, you need to make sure you’re not using them on bare skin. Although a jade roller is a bit more gentle on the skin, it can’t be in direct contact with your skin. Using a jade roller or any other face tool is part of a skincare routine, using other products will amplify the effect of each component of the routine.
The best products to use with a Jade Roller:
EGF is a powerful ingredient that will help with anti-again and smooth fine lines you may have on your skin. With a jade roller, the EGF serum will sink into your skin a lot faster and be more efficient.
Hydrogel or sheet mask and rollers are a match made in heaven! Using the roller over the mask will really help push the actives into your skin. Pro tip: use your favourite serum before you apply the face mask for some extra love and care.
This face oil as a texture and a blend of ingredients that will really nourish and hydrate your skin deeply. Made with pure rose de mai from Grasse, this oil is the ultimate treatment for your skin.
Developed for acne-prone skin, this gel serum with hyaluronic acid and zinc pairs well with a roller and will really help say goodbye to acne.
It’s best to try and use products that are quite rich, that way your skin will really benefit from it. There needs to be a layer, a slip for the roller to go onto your skin smoothly and treat your skin rather than damage it or irritate it.
With face tools, one thing you want to make sure of, is that you’re not applying too much pressure on your face. Remember that your skin is quite fragile and sensitive, so you want to make sure you’re being very gentle. It’s easier to have a light hand when you’re using a roller compared to other tools like a Gua Sha.
