Jade roller has been around in China since the 7th century, only now it’s becoming popular widely due to its immense benefits. This beauty product is a kind of mini yet handy face massager, made of the Jade stone. The hype of this facial massager is not without a reason. From ancient times believed that this stone could remove negative energy. In other words, Jade Roller benefits your face by stimulating blood circulation, allowing it to easily remove waste products that create sebum. It contains natural healing effects for your skin whilst reducing puffiness.

What does Jade Roller do? Why is it worth the try?

Do you realize how many times you use your facial muscles in a day? Every time you smile, talk or eat, your muscles are put to work. Therefore, not putting any attention towards them can tire them resulting in aging signs. According to the Chinese, a facial massage using a jade roller or Gua Sha stone is therefore the formula for beautiful, radiant and wrinkle-free skin. This way your muscles can relax and prevent the tension in your facial muscles and thus wrinkles in the longer run. Your face does need some relief!

Jade roller is best known for effectively reducing puffiness, redness and skin irritations. This incredible tool lets you benefit from an immediate calming effect and its massage keeps getting nicer and soother on your face. So it is definitely worth a try! 

Celebrities from all over have been using this consistently in their skincare for a while now! From leading actresses such as Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, to the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle are all reported fans. And why not? Jade roller results are just natural, promising and long lasting. 

In an interview, Alicia Keys’ makeup artist revealed: “I stick a jade roller in ice, so it’s basically freezing when I roll it over her skin. I really, really work into all those areas where I want blood and water and energy brought to the surface. It brings her skin to life, it practically makes her skin say, ‘Hi. I love you.’

How to use the Jade face massager?

Did you get a jade roller at home, but you are not sure how to use this facial massager? The massage just takes up your 10 well spent minutes. Therefore, grab your make-up remover, towel and keep jade roller close along with your favorite moisturizer, serum or oil! Here is how to use a jade roller face massager exactly:

Step 1: The basis of a facial massage is on a dry and cleansed face. Therefore, make sure that all make-up (residue) has been removed and that the skin is dry and cleaned. Also make sure the roller is clean & dry. You do this by rinsing the roller in advance with lukewarm water and then drying it well.

Step 2: Apply any of your favorite moisturizer, serum or oil to the face. This is allowed, if you like, but is not a must! It is possible to use the roller on a dry and clean face instead of in combination with a skin care product.

Step 3: Grab the roller with one hand and roll it over the forehead. This is best done with the large side of the roller if you use a ‘standard’ facial roller. Start between the eyebrows and roll the roller up to the hairline. Repeat for about 60 seconds, or longer if desired.

Step 4: Place the large side of the roller against the side of the nose on the cheek & roll from the cheek over the cheekbone towards the hairline (above the ear). So you roll over the cheek in an upward movement. Repeat for about 60 seconds on the left & right cheek.

Step 5: Now turn the roller over so that you can roll with the small stone of the roller (if you use the ‘standard’ facial roller). Place the roller on the beginning of the eyebrow and roll from the inside out, towards the temples. Repeat with your other eyebrow. In total you roll 30 seconds per eyebrow.

Step 6: Everyone wakes up from time to time with puffy eyelids, dark circles, or bags under their eyes. By rolling with (the small side of the) facial roller from the tear trough to the temples, the moisture is removed & you look a lot fresher. The skin around the eyes is very thin & sensitive. Therefore, roll gently & apply little to no pressure around the eyes. Do you want to wake up extra quickly? Then put the roller before rolling (maximum 10 minutes before use) in the fridge!

Step 7: Contouring is hot! Use the small side of the face roller and roll from the middle of the chin along the jawline. Did you do this for 60 seconds on both sides? Then roll from the bottom lip over the chin and stop at the neck. Do this for 60 seconds!

Step 8: The last step in this facial massage is to massage the neck. To do this, use the large side of the facial roller & roll from the chin & jawline, from top to bottom, stopping at the level of the collarbone. Repeat this for about 90 seconds and the facial massage is over!

Step 9: Because the roller has come into direct contact with the skin, it is important to clean the facial roller afterwards with lukewarm water. Dry the roller well with a soft cloth & store the roller in the supplied satin bag. Store the roller in a dry (not in the bathroom) & dark place. This way the roller retains its color & condition best.

Now that your first step has been taken, it’s important to keep repeating it to get most of the jade roller benefits. Preferably daily, about 10 minutes! Start the day with a facial massage for a fresh start, or end the day with a skincare moment for yourself.
