Dr. Patel explains that jade rollers help to decongest the lymphatic fluid in your face, and gives simple instructions on how to use them.
If you’re in need of a zen beauty treatment, look no further than the traditional jade roller. Gliding the dual-ended gemstone massager over your face has been a practice in ancient Chinese medicine for centuries to calm, cool, and lift the skin. At its core, rolling works to de-puff your face from lymphatic fluid that pools up.
“Jade rollers help decongest the lymphatic channels in the face,” explains Tennessee-based dermatologist Purvisha Patel. When coupled with your favorite products, the tool can also boost its effectiveness since it helps to drive them deeper into the pores.
As with most beauty products, all jade rollers are not created equal. “Look for a tool that is simple and streamlined,” she explains. “Find a jade roller without a lot of crevices that could grow bacteria in them.”
