Are Jade Rollers Really Worth All of the Hype?
We like to think so! Back in the day before self-help and at home skincare were easily accessible, people had to make do with what they had laying around the house. Years before jade rollers and other gemstones had even began to be looked into for their health and healing properties, people othen turned to their silverware drawer. Yes, you read that correctly. To eliminate under eye puffiness and skin tone discoloration, the DIY fix for that was to keep a spoon in your fridge overnight and then as you were getting ready in the morning, rub the smooth side of your spoon all over your skin to help rejuvenate and beat the under eye bags. Jade rollers work very similarly to this!
Dating back to the Chinese Qing Dynasty in the 17th Century, jade stones have been a popular and affordable beauty necessity to keep in your makeup bag. The jade stone specifically is believed to have healing and soothing properties for your skin. It wasn’t until 2018, though when jade rollers started to become the new beauty trend, as Instagram promoters and beauty bloggers began to use them and emphasis the impressive effects that something so simple could provide. For anyone interested in self-care or natural wellness, this was the product they had been waiting for! With immense accessibility and not a lot of damage to your wallet, jade rollers were the new trend to try if you were looking for illuminating and youthful looking skin.
Do Jade Rollers Actually Work?
According to regular users, you can effectively remove toxins all while eliminating puffiness all from just rubbing the stone over your face. Some users even suggest that the rollers have even been known to decrease the appearance of wrinkles, stimulate collagen, and help shrink your pores. Because of this remedied concoction, jade rollers are often roped under the category of anti-aging tools.
However, if you take a closer look at science, jade rollers don’t seem to be quite as effective as the media plays on. If you’re looking for a quick way to make your skin more luminous and awake, then you should give jade rollers a try! However, if you’re looking for something more long-term and substantial, you may be disappointed with the results. A thing to remember is jade rollers are more so constructed to benefit the surface of your skin whereas other treatments may tend to penetrate beneath the skin, giving you longer lasting results.
How Do They Work?
Dermatologists suggest that it’s not actually the jade stone itself that can provide us these skin brightening and tightening results that we’re after, but the actual motion of the stone itself! Think of it this way– the jade roller creates a similar effect to a facial massage. The motion of the stone keeps the blood in your face moving naturally through our circulatory system. Increasing the circulation can help improve the flow of the fluid in the lymphatic system. This fluid contains some of our white blood cells which are key in protecting us from disease and germs. Naturally, this fluid flows through our bodies slowly, but stimulating it through a massaging motion can help move it along, making it more beneficial and effective to our overall health. For best results, professionals recommend that you use a jade roller or some sort of smooth surface on your face twice a day, although you can use it more if you think your skin could use some extra vibrancy and replenishment.
