Jade Rollers: What They Are and How They Work
Recently, our Instagram feeds have been flooded with everyone from celebrities to influencers to friends massaging their faces with jade rollers. If you’ve ever wondered exactly why everyone seems to be taken with the fancy tool — and, more importantly, what it actually does for your skin — don’t worry, you’re not alone.
What exactly is a jade roller?
“A jade roller is a stone that looks like a small paint roller and is used to massage the skin,” says New York City dermatologist Michele Farber of Schweiger Dermatology Group. “It helps with lymphatic drainage, blood circulation, and used along with products to help absorption.”
The practice of jade rolling comes from ancient Chinese beauty rituals, and jade stones are believed by some to have mystical healing properties. In addition to jade, this tool also comes in a rose quartz version, which basically provides the same experience but offers a different pop of color to your #shelfies.
