Last December I wrote a blog post about how jade rollers benefit your skin. Today I want to explain how to use your jade roller to take advantage of these benefits!
In addition to providing all of the cooling effects of jade, the roller works as a facial massage, stimulating circulation and breaking up lymphatic stagnation to reduce puffiness and discoloration in the face.
How to Use
Always use your jade roller on freshly washed skin. If you have a serum or oil you like to use, put it on and let it sit on the skin for at least 60 seconds before using the roller.
Note: Always roll your jade roller from the center of your face outwards, using your nose as the divider. Each of the motions below should be repeated on both sides of the face!
Start at your chest and use gentle pressure to perform outward and upward strokes. Make sure to pass over the same patch of skin 3-4 times, and don't roll the roller backwards to get back to your starting point!
Starting at the chin, roll horizontally back towards the hairline.
From the corner of the nose, roll back towards the ears.
Using the smaller end of the jade roller, roll from the inner eye along the brow crease to the temple.
From your eyebrows, roll out towards your temples.
For the forehead, roll upwards from the eyebrows towards the hairline.
Finish by rolling horizontally from the center of your forehead towards the temples.
The whole process should take 2-4 minutes to complete. If your skin flushes as you're using the jade roller, this is completely normal and a good sign you're doing it correctly!
If you want to apply more moisturizer or serum after finishing with the jade roller, feel free to do so. Clean your jade roller with warm, soapy water before putting it away
(Some people like to put their jade rollers in the fridge overnight for maximum cooling effect).
And you're done! Use your jade roller once daily to achieve the best results.
