A recent beauty trend is the use of jade rollers and gua sha stones, but what are these tools, how does one use them, and are they an effective addition to your skin care?
Jade rollers are beauty tools that date back to seventh-century China. Beautiful jade is relatively cool to the touch, and has the ability to stay cool even when it contacts the skin. This cooling, gentle massage helps reduce puffiness, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and promote blood circulation, which brightens the complexion. The cold jade crystal restricts blood flow to a particular area, and gentle pressure pushes fluid trapped in the skin, known as lymph, to the lymph nodes, which process it and filter out toxins.
