WHAT DOES A JADE ROLLER DO?

The Jade Stone Roller is a portable hand-held facial massage device, usually with two jade stones attached on either side. The ‘Jade’ is a semi-precious stone made from two gems, Nephrite and Jadeite. As with most precious or semi-precious stones the grade, purity and quality will always be in contention however, this stone also has huge cultural significance in Chinese history. What’s it for, you ask…. I can explain it a little better after I tell you a bit more about your skincare routine.

Many people have a routine that takes complete care of the skin at the cellular level, it may also include products that provide collagen and elasticity to the tissues, but they will most likely neglect their facial muscles. A tense facial muscle can hinder the penetration of your favourite skincare products which negates the whole point of spending precious thousands on the latest cult product. Regular facial massages reduce muscular tension allowing for better penetration of topical products, it also help improve blood flow in the tissues and cells.

This is where a Jade Roller comes in. Incorporating one into your routine will ease facial tension, increase blood circulation and drain toxins.

Think about the last time you checked yourself in for a Facial treament at your favourite spa, and the Therapist would gently massage each product into your skin, completing a full facial massage with every step on your entire face, neck and decolletage. Your skin looked great and had glow that lasted for days. That’s because during the facial treatment the intermittent massages eased up your facial muscles, allowing for each product to penetrate better and have a lasting effect for days after.

Don’t feel bad if you’ve never had a facial and you feel as though your products may never have such a lasting effect, although we do advise getting regular facials, the good news is you already have the KEY product you need for your facial massage… your Hands! So then, a tool like the Jade Roller only enhances the process of conducting facial massages.

Neglecting to care for your facial muscles is a huge disadvantage to your skincare goals. Incorporating regular facial massages into your routine will correct this.
