Over the past year, many of my clients have been asking about the ancient Chinese beauty ritual, Jade Rolling…”What is it?”; “Should I be doing it?” and “where can I get one?”
Jade Rolling has been used for centuries in ancient Chinese medicine and I’ve been a fan of it for a number of years now. The natural Jade stone is known to draw out negative energy and balance your ‘chi’. It’s naturally cool and smooth and was used by Chinese royalty to retain good spirits.
As some of you may know, I’ve had poor skin from a young age and my skin still gets puffy sometimes from festive seasons or just seasonal changes. I’ve found the Jade Roller perfect for calming my skin down when it’s puffy and it is such a nice treat when you put it in the fridge first.
So let me share the benefits of Jade Rolling and why you should do it a few times a week!
BENEFITS OF JADE ROLLING
Helps with Lymphatic Drainage
Do you wake up in the morning with a puffy face? A Jade Roller can help drain the extra fluid that collects around your eyes and cheeks. Lymphatic fluid is waste that is flowing out of your lymph nodes and needs to be returned back to the cardiovascular system. Massaging around the eyes has been a common treatment for chronic sinus and immune issues for years as well.
Helps absorb serums and oils into your skins
Often you can find serums don’t absorb into your face as quickly as cream and you could be waiting a while to put on your next beauty product. Just roll onto your face after putting on the serum or face oil and you will find it absorb into your face better. You’ll see a noticeable difference in the morning if you do this at night.
Lovely Face Massage
If you love a facial and especially when you get the face massage, this is a great tool to get a face massage at home. Why are face massages so crucial? Putting pressure on certain points of your face can relieve tension and keep it relax which means fewer lines. If you’re a chronic jaw clencher or you squint a lot, this is an amazing tool to smooth your facial lines.
This is one of the best reasons why you should start Jade Rolling. Increasing blood flow gives you that glow in your face as well as helping reduce stress, giving you that appearance of being more rested and calm.
Are you ready to start?
It’s so easy…put your roller in the refrigerator for a few hours, apply your favourite serum, cream or oil on your face and roll the roller upwards from your neck, then on your face starting from under your cheeks, moving towards your forehead. Use the smaller roller for gentler places like under your eyes and the sides of your nose. Once done, wash and let dry on a cool place ready for the next time you use it.
