*Cue Chamillionaire’s Ridin‘*
To quote the song, “They see us rollin’.” But why exactly are we rolling? To boost our complexions, of course! Don’t just take our word for it, though. This beauty technique has been around since ancient China. It’s no secret—jade rolling benefits deliver a number of health-related perks on top of feeling amazing. You’ll find it’s super easy to incorporate, too, despite its spa-like airs.
But wait, before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s take a hot second and make sure we have the right roller to begin with.
Not All Jade Rollers Are Alike
Not all jade rollers are the same. Sure they may look similar online, but get them in your hands and you’ll instantly feel, see, and hear the difference. Some squeak. Others rattle. Some even fall apart after only a few uses. And still others aren’t even made of Jade! They’re just cleverly dyed green glass. 🤦🏽♀️ Get rolling with Prudence Millsap (BBE President), as she compares the ins, outs, and in-betweens of jade roller “lookalikes.” They’re not actually that alike after at all. . . 👇
The Benefits of Jade Rolling
Now that you’ve got a legitimate, well-crafted Jade roller, you’re ready to uncover the many benefits of this awesome beauty tool.
1. Soothes Inflammation
Jade is naturally cool, easing the heat and redness associated with inflammation. Furthermore, the movement of the roller can help to decrease the swelling of inflammation from fluid buildup through the distributive motions.
2. Reduces Puffiness
Whether it’s sodium, lack of sleep, allergies, etc., dealing with a puffy face can be frustrating. One jade rolling benefit is the encouragement of lymphatic drainage as you relieve build-up, minimizing the pesky bloat.
3. Improves Circulation
Yet another jade rolling benefit, the sweeping motions of a jade roller will help blood flow over your face and neck, leading you to a more youthful, radiant complexion. This is because of greater oxygen and nutrient dispersion.
4. Maximizes Penetration of Products
A jade roller can work products such as oils and serums deeper into the skin, ensuring you’re getting the most benefits out of them. Often, the product will just sit atop the surface with minimal absorption. If you’re looking to really seal the deal, use your roller at the end of your routine.
5. Increases Relaxation
Taking a moment to sit back and rest your eyes while you use your roller can be grounding. It’s a perfect moment to do some breathing exercises or meditation, or just to clear your mind after a long day.
