Why You Need To Try Jade Rolling

By In the Buff – September 16, 2017

Jade Rolling is an Ancient Chinese Medicine practice that has been used amongst affluent Chinese women for its skin benefits for centuries. It is basically a roller device made of the semi-precious stone called Jade, which is considered in Ancient Chinese Medicine to have healing properties, and apparently promotes power and immortality. Now, we don’t want to promise you immortality, but there are quite a few other benefits that you will likely find exciting. Tell me more, tell me more…

Jade Rolling follows a similar concept to derma rolling in that you roll the device over your skin to produce the desired effects. When used on the under eye area, Jade Rolling is comparable to the soothing sensation of cucumber slices.

We love Jade Rolling as you can notice the results immediately after use. The Jade Roller will literally roll out fine lines and wrinkles instantly, causing the skin to look softer, smoother and more radiant after just one go. Jade Rolling is also a simplistic and affordable addition to your skincare routine, that is really worth the small investment.

Jade Rolling boasts a long list of benefits for your skin that seem all too irresistible not to give it a go. Jade Rolling promotes lymphatic drainage from the massage-like technique used on your face and under-eye area. It has been known to reduce dark circles and bags from under the eye and diminish the puffiness so many of us suffer with. This is achieved as the practice helps to remove excess fluid from under the skin, adding definition to the jaw bone, eye brow and cheek bones.

Jade Rolling works as a detoxifying process by increasing stimulation to the facial area, allowing the body to rid itself of toxins and waste, and can even help alleviate common sinus issues. The increased blood flow and circulation to the face helps to build and repair new cells, and even promotes collagen production (ummm yasss please!).

Adding Jade Rolling to your regular beauty regime is as good for the face as a remedial massage is for the body, it massages the muscles, allowing them to relax and get their own little, much-needed pamper session. The practice releases tension in the face that causes fine lines and wrinkles to develop and set in. Jade Rolling assists in calming the skin and evening out the tone of your complexion. This ancient practice is known to balance chi, repair under-eye issues and promotes an all over glowing complexion... who wouldn’t want all of that, right?
