The 3 Benefits of Jade Rollers
Used by everyone from Marianna Hewitt and Kim Kardashian to Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Aniston, Jade Rollers are relied on by the A-list to get their complexions looking glowing and smooth.
1) Jade Rollers massage the skin and trigger lymphatic drainage drawing away unwanted puffiness. So, they are ideal to use the morning after a night out drinking Prosecco or after a long-haul flight.
2) Applying serum to the skin and then rolling your face with a Jade Roller helps the active ingredients in your skincare to drive deeper down.
3) Rolling your face gently, yet vigorously helps to get the blood flowing, boosting circulation and, in turn, that healthy luminosity. It can also help to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
