With all the attention we give to ensuring our face is preened and pampered, isn’t it about time that we started taking care of the rest of our skin? What is Dry Brushing? Basically, this type of brushing involves using a coarse, dry brush (this is the my favorite brush) to brush the skin in […]
Got a text from one of my girl friends last week: “What Is Jade Rolling, and Should I Be Doing It?” I felt like I had been keeping a secret from her because I love my jade roller and have been rolling with my jade roller religiously since last year. So, in true gal pal […]

Got a text from one of my girl friends last week: “What Is Jade Rolling, and Should I Be Doing It?” I felt like I had been keeping a secret from her because I love my jade roller and have been rolling with my jade roller religiously since last year. So, in true gal pal form, I’m going to share a few reasons why I LOVE, using my jade roller. Because, thats what friends do, right?! Share all amazing finds we have! Okay, so #jaderolling maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe you think it looks silly. Here are a few reasons I love and use it!
Helps with Lymphatic Drainage. THIS IS AMAZING.
Puffy morning face? A Jade Roller can help with draining the extra fluid that collects around your eyes and cheeks.
Aides with Skincare Absorption.
I’m the queen of getting my facial serums all over my pillowcase (Probably because I knock out minutes after my nightly skincare routine. Hello Lavender Essential Oil!) If you find yourself with this mess, Jade Rolling can help! Faster absorption means less waste and way more effectiveness! As an avid rose-hip oil user, I can definitely feel a difference in the way my face feels the morning after an application. Plus no more stains on your pretty pillowcases!
Reduces Under Eye Darkness. (all the praise hands!)
Tis the season of waking up before the sun rises. Plus, with a to-do list that gets longer every day, it isn’t surprising if you are waking up with dark circles. Although yes, sometimes darker pigmentation is genetic, you can deal with the awful bags and darkness combo with Jade Rolling. The cooling sensation can make the underlying blood vessels smaller.
Increases Circulation. There are so many benefits of increased blood flow. The best one, in my opinion, is definitely the healthy-flushed skin that results from weekly Jade Rolling. Other awesome benefits include: anti-aging properties, less stress, the appearance of being more rested, and soothing inflamed acne!
Here’s the best part… Jade Rolling is incredibly easy. Toss your roller in the refrigerator or freezer for a few hours, apply your favorite moisturizer or serum, and roll the roller from your neck towards your forehead in short, careful strokes.
