Jade Facial Roller Benefits Go Far Beyond De-Puffing Your Face
Jade rolling has long been a practice in traditional Chinese medicine. The stone is believed to have healing properties and be a sign of power and immortality. Over the last few years, the tool has made its way into beauty stores (and onto Instagram feeds) in the Western world, thanks in large part to its de-puffing abilities. What makes it special is that it’s made from natural jade stone which has both spiritual and physical benefits, and is known for its purifying and detoxifying qualities. And pros say that jade roller benefits include things like lymphatic drainage and improved circulation. Here’s what you need to know.
Jade Roller Benefits
1. Detoxifies and reduces puffiness
Jade rolling is one of the easiest ways to do it at home. Using the tool to massage your face can help reduce some of the fluid buildup, doing away with puffiness. Roll the massager toward your lymph nodes—which are located in your neck, slightly behind your ears—to help stimulate lymph movement.
2. Brightens and firms skin
Jade rollers massage the superficial layer of the skin, and if you pop them in the freezer to cool them down they can calm irritation, tighten pores, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Relaxes facial tension
If you’re a big-time jaw clencher, treating yourself to our DIY jade roller massage can help do away with some of the tension the habit leaves behind. By putting gentle pressure on your face and neck it helps reduce tension. Use the smaller end of the roller to gently massage along your jawline, and you’ll feel an immediate release of whatever stress you’re holding in the area.
4. De-puffs your under eyes
After a long night of crying, drinking, or eating salt, if you ever wind up with your eyes puffy, a simple jade-rolling routine can help. Massaging your face with the smaller end of the tool can help even out some of the fluid, and it will work double-duty if it’s fresh out of the freezer, since cold temperatures help to constrict blood vessels, which helps to prevent the flow of fluid into the tissues.
