China’s best kept beauty secret?

Jade rollers are something of a new discovery for me, but in ancient China, they have been used for thousands of years to combat wrinkles, puffiness, and clear the skin of fluid congestion. This semi-precious stone, always remains cold even in warm climates, which helps to close pores, tighten the skin and increase lymphatic drainage.

My dog’s look at me in bewilderment whilst I roll this would be toy over my face, I know they would love to get their tiny jaws around it. So keeping this safe is of the up most importance, as the rollers should always be stored in a box preferably with silk lining. Diva.

I think that we can definitely learn a lot from ancient beauty rituals, after all this was an age when beauty wasn’t hyped up just to sell products, there was no marketing, or too good to be true promises, just products that worked or didn’t work.

I have to admit I am an absolute sucker for marketing – I mean I bought these in the first place because I heard that Kylie Minogue was a huge fan of jade rollers. Still though I do always remain skeptical until I see results. The idea of the rollers is to use them everyday, as they act like a gym work out for the face, and roll upwards and outwards, starting from the right side of your face. This apparently lifts the “qi” or energy of the face.

They are so cold on contact with the skin, that they really do have a soothing and relaxing effect. If you think about it, all the latest beauty products ( especially eye creams) now have tiny rollers on them. They are wonderful for puffy eyes, after late nights, or too much merriment.

Final thought: I do love the jade rollers, as they feel super relaxing, are great for headaches and tension, and feel nice rolled over the eyelids:) So far, I’m not sure if they are toning my skin or not. I read one review that said it took 6 months to see ‘incredible results.’

So, see you here for a pic of my transformed face 6 month from now? 🙂

I bought mine from Cult Beauty, and they cost £28
