How to use jade roller?
As we said before, the jade roller consists of a larger roller on one side of the handle and a smaller roller on the other side.
The larger stone is intended for use on the jawline, cheeks and forehead, while the smaller stone is used under the eyes and around the mouth. It is recommended to use the jade roller on a clean face, before applying creams and oils.
However, you can also use the Jade roller after washing after applying oil. The roller should be moved over the face in "up-and-down" movements, with light pressure and an emphasis on the upward movement. Also, move the roller from the middle to the end of the face. You can use the roller over the entire face, and it is recommended to use this product on the neck as well.
Gua Sha stone
Gua Sha facial massage is a type of massage with the help of a flat stone that is passed over the face. The benefits of this facial massage are numerous, among other things, it stimulates facial circulation and reduces tension in the facial muscles.
The Gua Sha massage method originates from ancient Chinese and Southeast Asian medical techniques. Traditionally, it involves repeatedly scraping a certain part of the body to stimulate circulation, using different objects. Gua Sha facial massage is a slightly different technique, as it uses light hand pressure on a round stone that is passed over the face.
Benefits of Gua Sha facial massage
The most prominent benefits of Gua Sha facial massage are stimulating facial circulation and relaxing muscle tension. This is exactly why Gua Sha massage helps the facelifting process. Other advantages of this massage are as follows:
- strengthens facial muscles,
- smoothes the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles,
- stimulates collagen production,
- reduces dark circles,
- makes the skin radiant and gives it a healthy look.
In addition to the beauty benefits of Gua Sha massage for facial skin, this technique can also contribute to complete relaxation.
How to use a Gua Sha stone at home?
Before starting the home Gua Sha facial massage, you should wash your hands and face. Apply hydrating face water to a clean and dry face.
Then you gently massage the face serum or oil (about 5 drops) on the face so that the stone slides more easily on the skin. You pass the stone over a certain part of the face at an angle of 45 degrees (or less) and with light upward pressure. It is good to pass the stone 3 times over the same area while you are still learning how to use it.
It is not recommended to use the stone in one place more than 10 times during a massage. The places where the Gua Sha stone is most often used on the face are the following:
- cheekbones (below, above and across the cheekbones),
- under the eyes
- between the eyebrows,
You should start from the lowest part of the face and slowly change the place towards the upper part of the face. You can also use the stone on the neck, but remember to apply oil to that area as well.
What is the difference between a Roller and a Gua Sha stone?
The roller and the Gua Sha stone can be made of the same material, such as jade or quartz. Both products stimulate circulation in the face. However, with the Gua Sha stone, stronger pressure is used, and the technique of use needs to be perfected.
While the primary purpose of the roller is to stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage, the Gua Sha stone is primarily used to relax and strengthen the facial muscles. Although a jade roller can also relax and strengthen muscles, the effect is greater with a Gua Sha stone due to the stronger pressure when using it.
How did jade rollers for beauty use come about?
For a long time, the Chinese aristocracy kept the secret of jade as a semi-precious stone with the power to extract negative chi from the body.
Wealthy Chinese women started using it in their beauty routine as early as the seventh century, using a roller, that is, a double-sided massager and two jade stones on each side. Metaphysically, jade brings peace and harmony, and is known to help reduce stress.
