Welcome back, my beauties. I love being able to talk with you every day. This weekend has been crazy and I sincerely apologize for posting so late. However it is now Sunday and I wanted to discuss a skincare tool that is pretty popular. You have probably heard of them and seen them in most retail stores that sell beauty products and abundantly online as well. Jade Rollers.
The Jade Roller has been used in China as far back as the seventh century. It is a massage tool with jade or other stones used on the face. Jade is primarily used as it is cool to the touch, stays cool when in contact with the skin and helps with tightening your complexion, puffiness, promoting blood circulation and stimulating the lymphatic drainage system. Who knew one little tool could do so much?
The jade roller has two ends, the large end used for cheeks, forehead, and chin. The small end, primary used around the eyes, and other more delicate areas. To use the jade roller, follow these as a guideline, there is no set way in which to use the jade roller.
- Wash that beautiful face. You can reference back to Skincare Battle Parts 1 and 2, for recommendations on cleansing your skin. https://amateurconnoisseur.com/2021/02/11/skincare-battle-part-1/ and https://amateurconnoisseur.com/2021/02/14/skincare-battle-part-2/
- You will want to use a facial oil, or moisturizer to help with rolling your face.
- Start rolling.
Cheeks – Using the larger end and placing it on your chin, and use medium pressure move up towards your ear. Do this 5 or 6 times in the same location and then move up your cheek, stopping at your temple. Repeat on opposite side.
Forehead -Continue using the large end of the roller, start in the middle of your forehead, and roll towards your ears. Repeat this 5 or 6 times and repeat on each side. Work you way down to your eyebrows.
Under Eyes – Using the small end of the roller, start at the inner eye and move to the outer corner 10-15 times, using medium pressure. Repeat on the other eye.
Brows – Same as under your eyes, but above them now.
Crow’s Feet – Using the small end of the roller, roll upwards on the corner of your eye, rapidly for a few seconds. Repeat on each side.
Jaw – Use the roller in the joint of your jaw, if desired, rapidly rolling over this area several times. If you notice other areas that are super tight, please feel empowered to run your roller over those areas that need more attention.
Be strong, be beautiful, be you.
