Happy Friday!!!! Woo Hoo..the weekend is here and I have a big date lined up with Mr. Hoyle. When I say big date…I’m talking about going out to eat a restaurant that is NOT a drive-thru HA HA!!! I have a new pair of sandals I’m wanting to try out so I can give you girls my honest opinion on it next week. Oh…and Brooklyn will be staying the weekend, who knows — she’s probably going to be going with us. It’s always fun taking her, she is at the age she says the funniest things now.
I wanted to talk to you girls about the Jade Roller – this is something that is really popular and I wanted to make sure you are in the know! Check it out…
What is a Jade Roller?
The Jade Stone Roller is a facial massage tool that is a wonderful experience for your senses. It is known for its healing properties that relax the nervous system and aid in removing toxins.
The natural rejuvenating properties of the jade stone is that of invigorating and circulating the blood and body’s natural energy. This beauty accessory was used by Empresses and ancient royal families in China for years in their quest for smooth, youthful facial skin tone.
It’s a technique that has been used for centuries in Chinese Medicine for facial rejuvenation for its ability to minimize the appearance of fine lines, reduce inflammation and puffiness around the eyes, in addition to improving lymphatic drainage (does it make anyone else think of Dry Brushing? – find out about that here) and restoring facial skin tone. It’s a natural cooling stone that not only brings a wonderful glow to the skin but also aids in easing sinus pain and headaches by circulating Qi, which serves as one’s vital energy and life force.
How to Use it.
- Start out by cleansing your face with your favorite cleanser and pat dry
- Apply a face oil or serum to your face.
- I start on the right side of my face near the jaw line
- Roll the face with large side of the roller in an upward and back direction 3 times in each section.
- Massage your way through your whole face.
- Turn it over to the small side for delicate areas like around your eye, nose and upper lip.
- You are done
*if you are jade rolling for lymphatic drainage benefits, start at the nose and work your way out.
Another tip to help with de-puffing is to keep your jade roller in the refrigerator until you use it. Because Jade is a natural stone it stays cold all the time, but placing it in your frig will make it even more cold and get the puffiness to go down even faster. I don’t typically do this, because I like to keep all my skincare in the same room, but for special occasions or events, this is very easy and quick to do.
Where to Buy.
I have two Jade Rollers, the first one I bought came from Sephora and the second one came in my FabFitFun Box. You can find several different brands at Sephora and tons of options on Amazon, make sure you read all the info and reviews on Amazon, you don’t want to end up with fake Jade.
These range in price from $9.99 to $38. The top Seller is this one at Amazon:
Dull, Puffy Skin Be Gone
There’s nothing worse than waking up after a night of eating and drinking against your better judgment to find a swollen face staring back at you in the mirror. Rather than getting through the day with fatigue on your face, pick up our Jade Roller and start vanishing evidence of last night with each stroke, restoring balance and energy to your skin.
The Benefits Aren’t Few
- Stimulate collagen production
- Plump fine lines and reduce cell turnover time
- Help close and minimize enlarged pores
- Tighten and firm the skin by boosting elastin
- Minimize spots around chin and jawline caused by toxin build up
- helps firm facial muscles for improved elasticity and more…
Use the small roller to tone the lids and under-eye area. Move from the inner corner of the eye area to the ear.
Move from the center of the forehead beginning at the hairline, rolling towards the ear, down to the temple. Repeat 4-7 times. Focus attention on fine lines and eyebrow furrow.
Nose, Lips, Chin
Use larger roller to work from the nose out to the ear. Continue with the upper lip, lower lip, and the chin. Roll along the lower jawline of the chin, making your way to the ear lobe. Repeat on the other side.
Jawline and Neck
Start at chin and swipe upward toward cheekbones. Make sweeping motions up under the chin towards ears, then down the neck toward the collar bones.
Do you have to have a Jade Roller? No. Are they trendy? Of course. They are a nice little extra tool to use. I enjoy the experience of using my jade roller, if I didn’t see one single benefit I would still enjoy using it. It is so relaxing to do right before bed, it’s cooling and it really is like a mini massage for your face. It also helps the product really sink into your skin. Typically, I notice the next morning after using my jade roller the night before that my face looks good, fresh, glowy and young looking. I notice it the most around my eyes, the skin is very smooth with no signs of aging. I would say if you have the extra money then totally get one, but it’s not a totally must-have item. But – anything to help me look fresh and not so tired…I’m all for it!!
