With healing and protective properties, the Jade roller has amazing benefits for the skin as well as the lymphatic system.

I’ve been using the Jade roller diligently for a few minutes every morning and night using moderate pressure, beginning at the centre hairline, going either left or right slowly towards my ear. Repeating 6 times on each side before moving down to roll another line. Continuing rolling in lines from the corner of the eyes to the ears. Then I work from the nose out to the ears. Then I roll out my lips and chin area to the ears. At the chin, I roll along my jawline out to the earlobes. I then move onto the rolling long strokes from the collarbone to underneath my chin.
Jade roller has become a nightly ritual that has a calming effect on me, makes my face feel and look healthier, I’ve also noticed that when rolling my skin, my skin care oils are absorb more effectively thus using less product.
