Jade rollers: also known as the Instagram-buzzy beauty product that has probably been all over your timeline. Chances are, you're either 1) suspicious if it's beauty BS or the real deal or 2) wondering what the heck it even is. We've got answers for you. Jade rollers have been used in Chinese herbal medicine for ages and recently gained popularity because they actually work. Byrdie's very own wellness editor and managing editor of The Thirty, Victoria Hoff, swears by them for her morning routine.
The skincare benefits of jade rollers run the gamut, but most importantly, they lift, tighten, de-puff, and smooth your skin. Even though they look like mini paint rollers, don't feel silly taking a few moments to incorporate them into your skincare routine. They may be tiny, but they have the power to make a world of a difference on the overall look and feel of your face.
Our expressive facial muscles are full of tension. Using jade rollers loosens up the stiffness and knots in your face while tightening and lifting where needed. Skincare expert Ling Chan of Ling Skincare told Byrdie that by using a jade roller, "you increase blood circulation, assist lymphatic drainage, and diminish the appearance of fine lines." She also recommends after applying your creams or serums that you "roll the jade roller in an upward motion, working from your neck toward the forehead." There's a reason these things are loved by dermatologists, aestheticians, and beauty gurus alike.
