How to Properly Use a Jade Roller

How to Use a Jade Roller

Face rolling, whether it’s with ice or minerals, has been the epitome of self-care wrapped up in skincare. And because of its availability, affordability, and convenience, Jade rolling has been the most popular way of doing it. If you still haven’t started using a Jade roller in your routine, you’re missing out big time! Below is everything you need to know about using a Jade roller, what to expect and not to expect from it, and how to properly use it!

What Is a Jade Roller?

A Jade roller is a face massaging tool made with Jade stones, which is a gemstone believed to have healing benefits. Jade rolling brings two different practices together: massaging your face and using Jade stones.

Benefits of Jade Rolling

Some use Jade rollers for the benefit of Jade as a gemstone while some, like yours truly, enjoy it simply for the rolling and massaging aspect.

Of course, not all associated benefits are scientifically proven. In fact, most of the benefits of Jade rolling are attributed to facial massaging in general. Here’s more.

  1. Face rolling immediately increases circulation underneath the skin. From personal experience, this makes your skin look a bit more vibrant.
  2. Jade, because it’s an inherently cool stone, helps depuff the face. So Jade rolling can reduce the look of under-eye bags and minimize puffy eyes as a cold spoon would.
  3. Jade rolling is therapeutic. This is something we can all agree on. Jade rolling is a great way to wind down, relax, and pamper yourself while doing your skincare routine or giving yourself a facial.

As someone who has been using a Jade roller regularly, the benefits I’ve experienced firsthand are reduced puffiness, plumper skin from using the roller with my skincare products, and more radiant skin. Remember that these benefits are temporary!

How To Use a Jade Roller

Here’s a step-by-step guide to using a Jade roller for your face, under-eyes, neck, and body.

Step 1: Start with Skincare

Start with a clean face. Make sure there’s no makeup residue on your skin. While you can use a Jade roller on bare skin, it’s best to use a face oil or an emollient face serum or cream to improve the glide. You can finish your regular skincare routine first and then move on to Jade rolling.

Step 2: Be Gentle

When using your Jade roller, remember to be very gentle. Don’t apply too much pressure when rolling it. Simply let it glide on the skin, which should be easy when you use skincare in advance.

Step 3: Use the Jade Roller on Your Face

Start Jade rolling your face from the cheeks. Place the Jade roller on the right side of your nose and roll it out towards your ear. Do this 5 to 10 times or as many as you like. Do the same for the other side of the face. Then move down to the chin. Roll the Jade across the jawline and once you’re done, move on to the forehead. Place it above the brows and glide it vertically towards the hairline across the forehead.

Step 4: Move on to Under-Eyes

Use the smaller side of the Jade roller for your eye area. Start rolling the Jade following your brow toward the tail as if to complete the upper half of a circle. Move on to the under-eye area. Start from the inner corner of the eyes and roll the Jade outward and upward as if to complete the circle. Do it as many times as you like and repeat the same for the other part of your face.

Step 5: Include Neck and Body

If you want to use the Jade roller on your neck, switch to the bigger side and gently roll down on the neck starting from the jaw towards the collarbone. If you want, you can use your face roller on your body or get a separate Jade roller for your body, which happens to be bigger in size. Just like dry-brushing, start from the feet and use the Jade roller in an upward motion. Remember to always go outward and upward.

Step 6: Clean Your Tool

Every time you use your Jade roller, it collects some of those residual skincare from your skin. So remember to clean your tool. Once you’re done rolling, you can rinse it under the water and wipe it with a clean cloth. To properly clean a Jade roller, soak it in warm water with soap every now and then.

When To Use a Jade Roller in Your Routine

You can use a Jade roller in your morning and evening routine and as often as you like. And there are several ways you can incorporate it into your routine. It’s all a matter of preference.

  1. You can use it on your bare face before you start your skincare routine to loosen up your skin.
  2. You can use it to apply every single product in your routine to distribute your serums and creams evenly while massaging them in.
  3. You can use it at the very end of your routine just to seal everything in.
  4. You can have a separate Jade rolling routine whenever you want to relax and de-puff. In that case, apply your favorite oil and start rolling!
  5. You can also put on a sheet mask and start rolling over it to maximize the effects of your face mask.

How Often To Use a Jade Roller

You can use a Jade roller once or twice a day for full benefits or as often as you like. Consistency is key in a skincare routine. It’s what helps you observe and collect the benefits.

How Long To Jade Roll

Jade starts to warm up after about 5 minutes of rolling because of your skin’s temperature. Even though there’s no right answer for this, I think it’s best to use it at least until it’s no longer cool. You can still use it after that. Plus, it starts to cool back pretty quickly.

Do You Have To Keep It in The Fridge?

Jadestone is inherently cool. So you don’t have to keep it in the fridge for it to be effective. However, if you want to use it for instant de-puffing benefits, you can keep it in the fridge, which will make it even cooler. It’ll wake you up!

How To Pick a Jade Roller

To get the most benefits from your roller, stick with well-known brands. Avoid cheap face rollers as you don’t know what the stones are made of. And you might even irritate your skin, especially when your skin is sensitive.

Below are some Jade rollers you can use for an authentic experience.
