Chances are you've seen jade rollers all over Instagram and in your favourite skincare stores. But they’re more than just a pretty face massage tool - they actually work! Rolling helps stimulate collagen production, boost your skin elasticity and get rid of any unwanted puffiness. Plus, it feels great on the skin!
A jade roller is super easy to use, and you can ‘roll’ morning or night. We like to jade roll first thing in the morning to wake up the complexion and give our skin a little love before the day begins.
Here's how to use a Jade Roller properly in 4 easy steps:
Step 1: Cleanse your Skin
One of the benefits of jade rolling is that it helps your skincare products absorb better, so you always want to start with a clean face. After cleansing, apply your favourite serum or face oil - these formulas will help the jade roller to easily glide on your skin. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself, you could even apply a sheet mask, like the Soothe & Hydrate Aqua Porin Deluxe Sheet Mask or the Revitalise & Hydrate Vitamin Burst Sheet Mask. When the 10-15 minutes are up, you can roll in all that juicy excess serum!
Step 2: Invigorate your Skin.
The So Jaded Facial Roller is unique because it’s double-sided. It has a smooth head and a ridged head, and they both serve different purposes. To stimulate your skin, start with the ridged head. Roll from right to left over your forehead, and then start from your chin and roll all the way up to your ear. Repeat this on the other side of your face. Depending on how much time you have, you can do this between 5 to 15 times.
Step 3: Calm the Complexion
Your skin should be looking and feeling hydrated and plump at this point. Now, take the smooth end of the roller and run it over your forehead, cheeks and jawline. This will soothe the skin and reduce any puffiness. When you get to the delicate eye area, roll from the inner corners to the outer edges. If you’re wondering how to get rid of eye bags, don’t tug or apply pressure - a gentle touch is all you need. Finally, finish by rolling your neck. Start at your jawline, and then roll down to your collarbone.
Step 4: Wash your Roller
To keep your jade roller in tip-top condition, give it a rinse after using it.
Pro Tip: Pop your jade roller in the fridge between each use. The cool stone will feel amazing on your skin - and help to reduce puffiness even more!
