We’re talking about traditional Chinese derma rollers made of jade – or other gemstones like rose quartz and amethyst – which have seen a surge in popularity of late, despite the beauty device market being down overall last year. But handheld jade rollers are not just a huge hit with millennials because of their low price tags.
What is a jade roller?
Simply put, a jade roller is a beauty tool made of jade or other stones that’s used for face massage. The tools aren’t anything new, just hyper-visible thanks to social media. We have a great news for you! You can get this amazing product this month in your Out’n’Proud Gay Pack.
The crystal isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but most of the benefits come from the fact that it’s cold to the touch (and even more so if, like some enthusiasts, you store it in the fridge). The practice of applying a cold sensation and pressure to an area has been used for centuries because it works without fail. It’s simple: The cold restricts blood flow to a particular area, and pressure pushes fluid, known as lymph, to the lymph nodes, which process it and filter out toxins.
How do jade rollers work?
The key to getting in on the depuffing, glow-enhancing benefits is knowing how to use jade rollers correctly. The goal is to push the fluid trapped in your skin cells toward your lymph nodes. We recommend to do three strokes of light pressure, working with one side of the face at a time.
Here are our tips how to use it:
- Start at the centre of your chin, rolling out and up toward your ear.
- Then move the roller up to the side of your mouth and repeat.
- Repeat again, starting this time at the side of the nose.
- Roll it under your eye, moving it horizontally toward your temple, and repeat it on your eyelid.
- On your forehead, roll it up from your brow to your hairline.
- Then roll it horizontally out toward your temple.
- Finally, repeat on the other side of your face.
