Instagram is the pot for trends right now, and chances are, one may have chanced upon the jade roller that's taking wellness junkies' feeds by storm.

Jade rollers are basically derma rollers that are made of the gemstone jade. There are also other variants of the wonder tool that even models including Miranda Kerr and Dree Hemingway have sworn by, like rose quartz.

Jade Rollers Becoming More Popular

On Instagram, it's gaining popularity more than ever because of the many benefits supposedly experienced by people who have used it.

Basically, the jade roller has jade on both ends that are attached to a handle, one oblong end has larger stone than the other. Others only have one end, which contains the bigger stone. The purpose of the bigger is one for the neck, jaw, forehead, and cheeks, while the smaller one is being rolled under the eyes.

Advantages

Better yet, the jade roller is cheaper than other skincare tools, and besides, it's non-invasive, so there's no harm in trying. Why are people getting hooked by this product? First, it imitates the way an aesthetician massages the face during facial.

Why spend money when one can do it in the comfort of the home? Of the ultimate promise of a jade roller, it is essential to remove puffiness. The science behind this is that the massaging sensation of the device helps the tissues get rid of the toxins.

"Massaging the lymphatic system is key to helping our face move the excess water, which causes the puffiness. When lymph is flowing freely in the face, you'll have clearer, healthier skin without a buildup of toxins and fluids," Fr. Lamees Hamdan, Shiffa founder, pointed out.

Moreover, one can use it to apply moisturizers to seal in the products more onto the skin. It also promotes elasticity and helps in maintaining a youthful look.

As mentioned, it mimics the sensation of massages, and massages are one way of destressing big time. Abigail James, a skincare expert, meanwhile, pointed out that jade rollers also promote brightening because it improves circulation, therefore prompting a natural radiance and helping smoothen out fine lines.

The precious gemstone is also famous in Chinese traditional healing. That said, the use of jade for skincare isn't entirely new, especially in the Asian culture.

There's no denying that jade rollers have become a part of skincare routines nowadays. When Hamdan released the product in the United States, it instantly was a hit after it sold out fast in Nordstrom. This was the case, even though it was priced higher than another brand, and according to the owner of Shiffa, that's because of the quality of the gemstone.
