The Jade Roller, or Rullo di Giada, is certainly one of the most popular beauty tools in recent years.
jade has always been known for its energy power: it protects, stimulates, cures and relieves stress.
We're talking about a very ancient beauty ritual, just think that it existed in China as early as the 17th century. The wealthiest women of the Qing dynasty performed it to stretch the skin and subject it to an invigorating massage.
WHAT IS IT
The jade roller is a beauty tool used to stimulate circulation, illuminate the face and smooth out expression lines.
Usually it is made up of two rotating heads, one smaller and one larger, in semi-precious stone, generally jade: a mineral that stays fresh for a long time, even in contact with the body.
By rubbing the rollers along the face, the skin is sculpted by a gentle pressure and effective which exploits the cold therapy.
Let's find out immediately what are the benefits of the jade roller on the skin of the face:
The daily massage with the jade roller increases blood flow to the epidermis and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen.
- REDUCES SWELLING
- RELAXES BODY AND MIND
- INCREASE THE EFFECT OF OILS AND SERUM
WHEN TO DO IT
EVENING: it's the best time. With a cleansed face and no make-up the skin is more ready to receive all the night treatments.
MORNING: regenerating for the eye area. Use the mini jade roller along bags and dark circles for a fresher and brighter look.
SUMMER: for an extra-cold effect on the skin, keep the jade roller in the fridge in the warmer months.
HOW IT WORKS
Apply cream or serum and pass the jade roller on the cleansed, makeup-free and dry face with light movements from bottom to top. It is not necessary to press the skin as the jade stone acts with contact only.
Use the roller large in larger areas (forehead, cheeks, chin, neck) and the roller more little in the most delicate areas (eyes, nose, mouth).
Each movement must be repeated for at least 1 minute.
One of the benefits of the jade roller is to promote circulation and the lymphatic system. It is therefore preferable to start the massage from the neck, precisely to open the circulation channels. Now let's see what to do in each specific area:
- Neck and Décolleté - Place the roller at the bottom of the neck and then roll upwards.
- Chin - perform movements from the center to the outside of the face along the jaw.
- Mouth - use the small roller on the sides of the lips with upward movements.
- Cheeks - place the roller in the center of the face and then roll outwards.
- Nose - roll the jade roller from the nose towards the ear and over the nasolabial area.
- Eyes - treat the eye contour with the small roller, making movements from the inside of the face outwards. Also massage the under eye area to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
- Forehead - place the large end of the roller in the center of the forehead and roll it vertically towards the hairline. Then move on to the side areas and slide the roller horizontally towards the temples.
HOW TO CLEAN THE ROLLER
After use, clean the rollers with a damp cloth soaked in water.
From time to time add a drop of facial cleanser for a deeper cleansing.
