Skincare Must-Have: Jade Roller

jaderollerIf you don’t have a jade roller, I highly recommend getting one! It’s my secret weapon in my skincare arsenal. I got mine on Amazon for less than $15.

So what’s the deal with this thing? The rollers, made from real jade stones, have been used as a skincare tool in Asian cultures for centuries. Their main benefit is lymphatic drainage; when you roll the smooth stone over your face and neck, it gently drains fluid from the lymph nodes beneath the surface, resulting in less puffiness. It also flushes out toxins in the process. I find it makes the most difference directly under my eyes. Over time, it can also help reduce the appearance of dark circles, and firm and tighten skin.

I usually apply eye cream before I get rolling. The jade roller makes the cream absorb better, and the cream helps the roller glide over skin effortlessly. I swipe the roller down and out under my eyes; on the rest of my face, I use upward strokes. Roll for a few minutes, and it’s like a mini facial massage…very relaxing!

You can store your roller in the fridge for even more of an instant tightening effect, but I don’t because the stone does stay cool as you use it.

Have you ever tried a jade roller? What do you think of it?
