If you’ve been plugged into the beauty world within the last year, you may be wondering, “What are jade rollers and what do they do?” I know I’ve been questioning this for a while, as I’ve seen numerous influencers swear by them on social media. Jade rollers are intended to increase circulation in the face, boost the skin’s natural detoxification progress, calm skin, reduce puffiness and overall, provide stress relief. This beauty technique has been used in China for centuries, however, only recently has it be popularized in the Western world.

Jade rollers can be used in a variety of ways, from rolling straight onto dry skin to helping massage serums, oils or moisturizers into the face. They’re also often kept in a freezer, as the cooled stones are known to be calming when rolled onto the face. It can be used during both the morning and nighttime beauty routines, with cleaning encouraged between uses to prevent the spread of bacteria.
