The main question immediately arises “Do jade rollers work?”.
Tools and lasers will try their best, but at some point, they just can’t work for lifting your face. The muscles in the face will drop with age. It’s just a reality. Jade rollers, due to their ‘rolling pin’ shape, can’t target the muscles enough to be able to stimulate muscle tone and help with lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness. But the main function is that it’s a massaging gadget. Facial massage will help increase circulation to help bring fresh blood and new nutrients to skin cells. I’m a big believer in boosting blood flow to the face, especially as you get older. That’s why we recommend you to try this product.

Technique is extremely important when it comes to using a jade roller. While it can be an effective at-home skin treatment, not using it in the right way might end up doing more harm than good.
It’s important to start with a clean, fresh face with your serum of choice. Use medium pressure and take your time. Here’s step guide how to use it:
Start work from your neck upwards. Roll up and down the neck, from one side to the other with medium pressure, to kick-start the lymphatic system.
Move to the jawline and start at the centre of your chin. Work from the middle of the chin across towards your earlobe, and do five to six passes on each area as you work up the face. Repeat on the other side.
Next, move to the forehead. Work from the centre across towards your outer temples, doing five to seven passes, and repeat on the other side. Then, cross by starting at the brows, and move upwards towards the hairline. Move it across the forehead.
Gently roll from the inner corner towards the outer corner, up towards the brow bone. Make sure to get the under-eye area and crow’s feet. Roll back and forth, about 10 times. Repeat on the other side.
It’s also important to note that like many other skin care trends, a jade roller isn’t for everyone. We recommend to avoid using the roller if you are having any types of skin rashes or cold sores, and also acneic skin should avoid it, since the jade roller can spread bacteria around. You should also make sure you sanitise you’re roller with mild soap in between uses.
But in all other cases – enjoy!
