“Jade facial rollers have been used to massage the skin since the 17th century in China
Originating in China in the 17th century, face rollers - particularly jade rollers - have been used to massage the skin, and are also said to 'remove toxins' from the skin, smooth fine lines decrease dark circles and under-eye bags, ease tension headaches, calm inflammation, heal breakouts, brighten skin, and create an overall feeling of 'zen'
But when it comes to the crux of the issue, here's what face rollers cannot do:
- increase collagen stimulation
- reduce wrinkles
- enhance or increase the penetration of skincare ingredients
- clear acne outbreaks
Here's what we suggest for using your face roller (which, coincidentally feels AMAZING if kept in the fridge first...):
Apply a few drops of moisturizer, serum, or oil to your clean, dry face, then gently roll the jade up, down, and all across your skin until the product is absorbed. Ta-da!
