I have great respect and love for time-honoured, traditional practices handed down through generations. Here's one that has been around from the 7th century in China where Jade is known as the stone of eternal youth.
The Jade stone is believed to have healing and protective properties for the skin. Some beauty strategies stand the test of time and this is true for the jade roller!
First, of all, what is Jade? Jade is a non-porous stone which means that it will not retain bacteria and it has a cooling effect.
I've done some research into the benefits of using the jade roller and it seems there are a number of them.
The rolling action, stimulates blood circulation in your face and and this may diminish the appearance of fine lines around the forehead and reduce any puffiness around the eyes. It also assists lymphatic drainage which can prevent or clear breakouts. The Jade roller can be used with facial oils like argan oil or jojoba oil or serums or moisturisers that will allow for deeper penetration of the active ingredients into the skin.
With such great benefits, that I have personally experienced-not to mention the soothing face massage before bedtime- I felt so inspired by this ancient tradition and had to share the experience. I am happy to have been able to source these little wonders directly from China from a verified supplier.
The Nirvana Natural Bliss Dual Jade Facial Roller has a large and smaller roller at the bottom. The large roller is typically used for larger areas of the face such as the cheeks and the smaller roller is great for use on smaller areas of the face or around the eyes.
