What was used as a decorative piece or part of an ornament to promote protection and good luck has now become a beauty must-have. Jade rollers have become an internet sensation among the beauty community just recently. There’s no doubt that its release has caused confusion among many. As what was deemed a decor or even part of jewellery is used to roll on your facial features.
So what exactly are jade rollers? It is exactly like what it sounds — a cylinder-shaped precious stone attached to a paint-roller-like handle. You may have seen them multiple times on social media — in either green, rose quartz and even amethyst, which many tend to also use for flat-lay images (which in a way bring some sort of aesthetics to the picture). It’s been said that jade rollers were already a part of the royalties from the Qing Dynasty’s beauty regimen, believing that it could ‘remove toxins’ from the skin and reduce puffiness — perhaps it is reasonable and probably there are other utensils that can do it too. A metal spoon, maybe?
Let’s be clear — we’re not shading jade rollers, as long as they are proven to effective in improving our skin. But there are some that go as far as claiming it can heal breakouts, improve collagen production, brighten skin, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of dark circles and eye bags, and even help with headaches — that’s quite a case.
Before you start adding 10 jade rollers into your shopping cart — not all of the above are true. Jade rolling, or any facial massage gestures promote blood circulation — which in return, gives the appearance of a brighter complexion. Skin de-puffing also works, as you’re technically stimulating lymphatic drainage in the face. And that’s basically it.
It’s not an issue if you’re still curious about them, as many believes that it’s the best and the most relaxing part of the skincare regimen. If you’re keen, go on and try it. Here are three jade rollers that we’d recommend.
