When it comes to massage, it is often associated with eradicating tension from our bodies and relaxing our minds, yet there is so much more to it than meets the eye. Massage also brings with it a wealth of benefits for the skin too, especially when it comes to our faces.
Jade rollers have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to improve blood circulation, aid lympathic drainage, tighten the skin and reduce puffiness. They also help to get the most out of your skincare regime by allowing the products to penetrate the skin, ultimately giving you a more radiant complexion.
I’d been wanting to try a jade roller for a while, so when I saw Myroo’s duel-ended jade roller on a recent visit to their website, I knew this was my time to try.
Myroo’s Jade Massage Roller allows you to massage the face and neck with ease, with the smaller end fitting perfectly around the nose and eye area while the larger end takes care of the rest. The cooling jade instantly soothes and calms any redness on the skin and was a saviour during the recent heatwave (especially when placed into the fridge before use!). I use my jade roller everyday, both morning and night after cleansing and toning my skin, in conjunction with my serum. I personally prefer to use with an oil-based serum, but it would also work well with a water based one, such as Hyaluronic Acid, and most facial oils too. Starting at the neck, simply let the roller work it’s magic by gentle rolling in upward and outward movements. Keep working up through the face, including the eye area, until you reach your hairline, and then you’re done! I also use the jade roller in conjunction with sheet masks, as I find it helps make the most of the mask and ensures that all the serum transfers into the skin instead of laying on the surface; it also helps to get the mask in exactly the right position, especially around the contours of the face. What I love most about Myroo’s Jade Roller is the way in which is comes in a reusable eco-cotton bag which not only is a great way to store your roller, but it also makes a great gift too.
I have to say that I really enjoy the jade roller experience as not only is it a relaxing step in my skincare routine but I also find that my skin is really reaping the benefits. It is difficult to say if it’s because the cooling jade roller is improving my blood circulation or that it is supercharging my existing skincare, but either way, my skin is definitely brighter and feels more hydrated since I began using Myroo’s Jade Roller. It is certainly a skincare tool I couldn’t live without, and I would highly recommend to anyone.
