Facial Rollers and Gua Shas
An ancient practice that revs up circulation, de-puffs the eye area, and improves skin elasticity—and since it promotes lymphatic drainage, it’s detoxifying.
Follow these steps to get glowing in no time!
Cleanse and exfoliate your facial thoroughly.
Apply serum, moisturizer, or a mask
Start rolling! Either start at the chest or the forehead, using outward and upward motions doing about three up-and-out passes per area. After just a few strokes on your face, neck and decolletage, you’ll see that your skin is brighter and your fine lines are, literally rolled out!
Keep at it for about two minutes.
If you applied a mask and it starts to get sticky (this is good—it means the product is being pushed down into your skin), spray a little mist on your face to get things moving again.
If you applied a clear serum or moisturizer, this is where you’ll see your face start to flush. This is also good—it means you’re increasing the circulation to your face and helping with cell rebuilding, collagen boosting, and lymphatic drainage.
Wipe your face clean. Then add serum or moisturizer. (If you started with serum or moisturizer, the product has been pushed deeply into your skin during jade rolling. Give it another slather.)
And you’re done! There’s no harm in rolling every day, but it’s most commonly done three or four times a week. And in a wellness pinch, you can also roll the cool jade over your temples and sinuses to ease a headache; over your jaw to relieve stress; and under eyes to relieve puffiness.
