Face Rolling: What It Is, How to Do It and Why You’ll Love It.

Get the fast facts on this trending beauty tool

You’ve no doubt seen a face roller in all of your feeds and wondered what all the fuss is about. It’s no accident that this low-tech tool has become a social media superstar. But if you’re thinking about adding a roller to your regimen, here’s our take on why you should roll with it – and why a jade roller is the way to go.

What it is:

Face rollers have a long skincare history, originally hailing from China where they were traditionally used to massage the face and rid it of toxins, as well as ease tension and puffiness. Most face rollers are made of jade, rose quartz or other crystals, all of which can help your skin by stimulating blood flow through massage. With regular use you can look forward to skin that looks less bloated, puffy and gives off more of a glow.

Why you’ll love it:

These must-have tools are the perfect blend of self-care and skincare, combining the stress relieving power of massage, with visible skincare benefits. Rolling in the morning can help kickstart circulation. Rolling in the evening can help you destress, while helping improve lymphatic drainage for brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.

We love a jade roller, which are known to ward off negative energy – something we can all use right now. From overindulging in sugar, caffeine, and wine to not getting enough sleep, your skin may be a bit stressed. And if you hold tension in your jaw, rollers are a great release.

 How it works:

Always start with a clean face when using a roller. Our Comforting Cream Cleanser would be a nice choice if you’re looking for something gentle to boost comfort and radiance, while our Hyaluronic Gel Cushion Cleanser contains Aloe Vera to soothe and nourish skin. And if you’ve put on a bit of makeup for yet another video call, try our Multi-Action Moisture Matrix Melting Cleanser which melts away makeup while nourishing skin with moisturized, maximum glow.

Once you’ve got a fresh start, roll in an upward, sweeping motion and apply gentle pressure to the neck, chin, cheeks, and undereye areas. Enjoy the cooling effect of the roller. Roll up and then out to the sides working around your facial contours for best results.  Think of the upward motion as a positive move in the right direction- like your best workout and massage all rolled into one.

The best rollers are dual-ended and feature a smaller stone for smaller areas around the eyes and a larger stone for a more allover application. Use it a few times a week to see best results.

Pro tip: Keep yours in the fridge when you need to feel cool, calm, and collected as well as tighten pores.
