Keeping up with the trends- we have seen, for the past couple of years, facial rollers made from jade or an imitation jade-like stone, have been wheeling down and picking up fans along the way. At this point you’re bound to have heard of these glorious, pretty little skin care tools, they’re ridiculously good looking tools made from crystals, oh yes you have seen them on Instagram very often. Most commonly you’ll see ones made from jade, amethyst or rose quartz, in the shape of hand-held rollers or simply flat stones.
The massage factor is the key here. The jade stone is naturally cool, and the roller makes it easy to apply gentle pressure all over the face. It’s also a pretty, visual reminder to stop and treat yourself to a mini massage. The tool generally features a larger stone for cheeks, jaw and forehead and a smaller stone for under the eyes and around the mouth. To use it, apply gentle pressure while rolling the tool from the centre of your face in upward and outward motions. Well, it won’t harm to follow this massage ritual for 3-5 minutes, will it?
Although the secret is not some new magic dropped down from the sky, jade facial rollers have been around for centuries; there’s evidence of them as far back as seventh-century China, where the stone was believed to have healing and protective properties. The Chinese used to use it for anti-ageing and to keep their skins youthful. In the recent period of time U.S is going gaga over this Asian beauty tool.
The general purpose behind rubbing these precious stones all over your face is to drain fluid from the skin and muscle tissue and to help stimulate oxygen flow to the skin. ‘Our facial muscles store a lot of tension,’ says Ling Chan, an esthetician and the owner of the facial-specializing Ling Skincare spa. ‘Our facial muscles store a lot of tension,’ adds Ling Chan, an esthetician and the owner of the facial-specializing Ling Skincare spa.
‘The only benefit of the facial roller, in my opinion, is that you do have lymphatic drainage,’ says board-certified dermatologist Marie Jhin, author of Asian Beauty Secrets. ‘Sometimes, you wake up, and your face is a little swollen, and your eyes are a little full. The roller could help move some of that lymphatic fluid and remove some of the inflammation or swelling.’ One has lymph nodes at the base of the nose, outside the mouth, along the jaw, behind the ears, under the chin, and in the back of the neck, so, theoretically, you’d want to direct the flow of fluid toward those spots.

Many have even claimed the roller for its anti-ageing propriety, the device helps the lotions, serums, and masks penetrate the skin. Also, the massage does increase blood circulation, so it’s possible that massaging makes it easier for the skin to soak up any product. Just be sure to massage gently, as too much pressure could rupture pimples, leading to further inflammation or breakouts. Experts recommend keeping the roller clean by washing it with soapy water after use, which only makes sense because you don’t want the dirt to get back on the face again. Looks like I am buying my jade beauty right away now.

[Case Study 🧐]: wholistic lesion removal. ✨ . After seeing 3 dermatologists over 2 years, @browpixie tried our JRB gemstone detox tools as a last-stitch effort. 💛🙏🏻 . She used her PRO roller once a day for 2 weeks + saw this result! This is our second proven case study of lesion removal. 🌿 . Our founder discovered the jade roller after her personal dermatologist prescribed an Rx with side effects like “swelling of the fluid around the brain” 🤯 . Upon researching the causes of lesions, she discovered it was often due to the toxins being trapped under the surface of the skin, not being pumped out properly from the cellular environment, so it leads to inflammation + blockages. So all the toxins that are *supposed* to be flushed are just hanging around unless we move them out. 😮 . Brooke + Leila bonded over their experience with this revelation in detox skincare. We can self care + make a difference in our health. We can avoid side effects of medication by taking an active role in our own well state. 💛 . #jaderollerbeauty #jaderoller #lesion #detoxskincare #iterstitialenvironment #cleanbeauty #morethanjustabeautytool #jaderollingbeforeandafter #jaderolling #mole #lymphdrainage #selfcare #lymphstagnation #trueskinCARE #deepbeauty #movingpastsurfacelevel #nosideeffects #naturalsolutions #healthwarrior #selfcaretool
