We've seen jade rollers all over the internet. They're pretty, and people say that this nifty little green tool has helped them score a glowing complexion. But besides looking Instagrammable and its hype, what can a jade roller really do for you? Ahead, our mini-investigation reveals its history, benefits, and how to use it.
Benefits of Using a Jade Roller
Do you wake up with a puffy face or feel that your facial muscles are a bit tense? Then a jade roller deserves a spot in your skincare routine. Massaging a jade roller on your face can help de-puff by increasing lymphatic drainage. BTW, jade rollers were used to massage skin in ancient China—it has been around for a long time!
Types of Jade Rollers
There are many types of rollers available: Besides jade, we’ve seen rose quartz and stainless steel. The stone doesn’t really matter. And in case you’ve stumbled upon a stainless steel skincare tool, that’s fine too because it cools faster in the fridge and it’s easier to clean compared to its crystal counterparts.
How do I know if a jade roller is authentic?
Jade is a naturally cooling stone. If it comes in contact with body heat and it warms up, it’s not real! You should feel a cooling sensation when it touches the skin.
Should I keep a jade roller in the fridge?
We recommend storing this in the fridge so you can maximize its cooling benefits. But if you want to keep it traditional, Chinese medicine recommends using a jade roller at room temperature.
