The Jade face roller is an ancient beauty tool that has been an integral part of Chinese self-care regimes since as early as the 17th century. These rollers were an essential beauty tool amongst the elite women of China and Jade was considered a status symbol. The emperors of the Han Dynasty even commissioned bespoke Jade suits, in hopes of living forever. Jade is still a symbol of beauty, grace and longevity today.
The Jade face roller is non-invasive therefore they are the ideal holistic alternative to a derma-roller.
Just like exercise tones and strengthens the body, the Jade Roller gives your face a regular gym work-out.
Each roller is individually carved by hand from natural stone thus may differ slightly in size from that pictured. Due to natural variations in the stone, your jade face roller will be completely unique in color and pattern.
To start, cleanse your face for a receptive canvas.
Begin rolling on the right side of the face and move on to the left.
Always roll in an upward and outward motion.
Roll from the centre of the face towards the hairline, always in one direction.
On the neck, roll from the jawline down towards the collar bone.
Use the stone on it’s own or apply a serum, moisturiser or oil to the face.
Use your roller instead of your fingertips to gently massage the product into the skin.
This method is especially helpful to increase product absorption, improve circulation and relax areas of tension.
Hot Cloth Ritual
Apply a hot, damp cloth to a clean face.
Lie back and roll your roller over the cloth.
This method is best for relief from congestion and to empower the release of impurities. The rolling action coupled with the warmth will also increase circulation and reduce puffiness by improving the flow of lymph.
Store your roller in the fridge or dip in a bowl of ice water before rolling each area of the face.
The cool sensation coupled with the massaging action is ideal to tighten and lift the skin. This method also tightens pores, boosts circulation to the surface of the skin and reduces puffiness.
Apply a face mask to a clean face.
Once your mask starts to dry, spray a toner or mist over the mask to make it sticky again.
Then use your roller to spread and massage over the moistened mask.
This method is ideal to improve absorption, purge toxins and boost the treatment action of your mask.
