The Jade Roller: Is It Even Worth the Investment or Not?

The jade roller is one of those beauty tools that blew up overnight. It looks sort of like a small paint roller, but with a jade or quartz stone on either end. Most rollers have two stones on both ends, one small and a larger one. The smaller one is used for around the eyes and mouth, and the larger roller is used for the forehead and jawline. But is investing in a jade roller worth it?

Jade RollerWhat’s the Jade Roller Supposed to Do?

The idea behind the jade roller is that when you use it consistently and properly, it will brighten the skin while also reducing swelling, inflammation, smoothing out fine lines, and also prepping the skin so that the nourishing products you apply can be easily and better absorbed.

The way to use the roller is similar to that of a facial massage. After completing your skincare routine or after applying a face mask, you can go over your skin and gently massage it with the jade roller. It’s commonly used by beauty professionals, celebrities, and more.

Is It Worth It?

Jade RollerWhile the jade roller comes with benefits, it’s not for everyone. Dr. Lana Kashian, a dermatologist, stated that fibroblasts are cells that produce collagen, and they’re stimulated by mechanical pressure. With that being said, the jade roller and the physical pressure that is used when using it can help boost collagen production.

Massaging your skin with the roller can also help improve circulation, and in turn, remove toxins as well as lymphatic drainage, which can help decrease the amount of facial puffiness. However, the roller must be used regularly.

Dr. Kasian also said that if you’re someone who enjoys skincare and your rituals, then it’s something you may enjoy. However, if you’re one who can barely remember to put on sunscreen, it’s probably not the best investment.
