Skincare trends are closely related to general wellness trends, and precious stones are no exception. The natural properties of jade are being used to benefit skin in the form of hand-held rollers that are easy to find and use. Curious? Read on to learn more about this hot trend.
The benefits seem endless:
- Aids in product absorption – when used alongside moisturizers and serums, jade rollers can help the products penetrate the skin more easily.
- Helps offset signs of aging – use of a jade roller has been known to improve skin elasticity, tone facial muscles, and decrease wrinkles.
- Promotes healthy bodily functions – blood flow, circulation, lymphatic drainage, and collagen production are all known to get a boost from jade rollers.
- Reduces unwanted issues – using a jade roller can help eliminate inflammation, toxins, and jawline breakouts, as well as sinus pressure and sinus headaches. Stress and tension can also be lessened.
- Makes skincare feel special – incorporating a jade roller into your skincare routine can help it feel like a self-care ritual and less like a chore, allowing a good habit to form easily.
There aren’t many downsides:
- Bacteria can grow – if not cleaned regularly, jade rollers can develop bacteria that’s harmful to your skin. Clean regularly or after each use to avoid these kinds of issues.
- Too much pressure can be detrimental – jade rollers are intended to be used with light pressure. Anything beyond that can lead to irritation, inflammation, or it can aggravate pre-existing conditions.
Everyone loves insider tips and tricks:
- Use your nose – the bridge of your nose is a great reference point for how and where to use your roller. When in doubt, rolling upwards and out from that central point is a good practice.
- Store your roller in the fridge – the cooler the stone is, the more it will soothe your skin.
- Pair with sheet masks – Using the roller after applying a sheet mask to your face can help the mask adhere and promotes better absorption of the mask’s ingredients.
- Choose the type of stone you need – rollers made with jade are very popular, but other stones are being used now as well. Rose quartz and amethyst are common, so do a little research on the properties of each to determine the best stone for you.
