4. Does the technique matter ? Can I roll it upwards or downwards
Now this is very important babes. If you are to get the maximum use of your jade roller, you need to know how exactly to roll with it. So, technique does matter!
Key to Jade rolling is that you roll on an upward motion, not downwards. We have to be working against gravity when we do jade rolling, because we want to help our skin counteract with downward pull, ageing and sagging. Also, be gentle with your skin.
You could use your jade/ rose quartz roller either on freshly washed and cleansed face or with a facial oil, serum or facial mask on your skin. When using on a serum or oil, a gentle massage from your jade roller will help penetrate oils deep into your skin.
Gently roll your facial roller over your skin making sure you cover all parts of your face including neck.Use the larger roller for your face and neck. The smaller roller is made for delicate areas around your eyes and nose.
If you are using a serum, apply the serum on your face before using the jade roller.Be kind on your skin creating a light and comfortable pressure which creates a gentle massage on your face.Start rolling on one side of your face outward and upward from the centre (or both sides at the same time with two Jade / Rose Quartz Rollers)
5. Do I have to clean my Jade Roller?
Yes you should, due to a couple of reasons. When you use your roller for a massage, the stone of the roller could touch your pimples, acne spots. By cleaning your roller, it would prevent bacteria build up and it will be fresh on your skin every time you use.
After using your facial roller, gently wipe clean using a soft cloth with slightly warm water. Dry with a different soft cloth. Do not use any harsh soap or chemicals to wash the roller as they are made with crystals stones which can be harmed with chemicals.
