Jade rollers have been used by empresses and members of high society in China since the 17th century, but have recently experienced a boost in popularity in the US.

Develop a healthy lifestyle and using some beauty tools, like Jade roller. Jade remains cool to the touch (even in warm weather) and can help provide anti-ageing benefits.
Does Jade Rollers actually work?
Actually it depends on what your goal is. Jade roller isn't a magical cure for your acne breakouts and wrinkles or every skin problems as some make it out to be. Sorry to disappoint, but Jade rolling can not reduce all of your skin problems. However, it reduces puffiness temporarily by increasing lymphatic drainage. Some evangelists claim that the rolling motion of the stone on your face can help clear toxins and decrease puffiness, while others assert much loftier result; that regular use of Jade rollers can erase wrinkles, stimulate collagen, tighten pores and potentially improve inflammatory skin conditions. However, if you massage your skin regularly in the right way you will get the same benefits as Jade rolling. A Jade roller is just a right equipment to start with.
Before or after moisturizer?
Jade rolling a 100% feels better when performed after moisturizing. To get the skin properly hydrated beforehand, it is suggested to first spray a hydrating mist or apply an alcohol-free toner and gently pat into the skin. Then smooth on a hydrating serum, followed by your hydrating mist again to lock it all in, finish with a few drops of natural face oil (if you prefer) and you are good to start with the rolling.
How to use Jade Roller?
Jade rolling is a simple technique derived from Chinese beauty rituals using a roller to apply pressure to your skin and underlying tissue, creating movement beneath the surface. Overly aggressive usage of a Jade roller may wind up doing more harm than good.
So instead of pushing the tool back and forth in every way work in a specific direction depending on what you are trying to target. After hydrating your skin to prep, follow the steps for face rolling below:
- Jawline and neck: Start with the neck to open channels of circulation. Place the roller in the back at the top of your neck, and roll downwards along the sides. Then, move to the front and roll from the jawline down to the collarbone.
- Nose, lips and cheeks: Using the large roller, work from the nose out to the ear. Continue with upper lip, lower lip and the chin. At the chin follow along the lower jawline to under the earlobe. Then repeat with the other side.
- Forehead: From the centre of the forehead, moving either left or right, begin at the hairline, rolling slowly towards the ear. Repeat 3 to 6 times over the same area.
- Eyes: Using the small roller, work the lids and under-eye area. Continue rolling in strips from the corner of the eye to the ear with the small side of the roller.
Note: Disinfect your roller every time before use to avoid transmit bacteria. It is important to note that the result won't last forever, so to see any effects, you have to keep doing it. You should add Jade rolling on your skincare ritual for a daily basis.
