Let’s talk about jade rollers, shall we? Though we’ve debunked the chakra-aligning claims around crystal-infused skin care, that doesn’t mean these precious stones can’t be used with the rest of your skin regimen. Many of you may be skeptical of jade’s skin-enhancing abilities, but this stone can actually be quite useful as a facial massage tool.
Similar to rose quartz, jade is believed to have healing powers and absorb negative energy. When incorporated into skin care by way of jade rollers, which are handheld massaging tools typically made with one or two jade stone heads, the gem allegedly boosts blood circulation, reduces undereye swelling, and helps products absorb better and more deeply into your skin.
As with any face mask or hair treatment, there’s a self-care element to many of the best beauty products in the industry. “I love jade rollers for relaxation and rejuvenation,” Mona Gohara, MD, board-certified dermatologist and Yale associate clinical professor tells Allure. Although she loves how the meditative effect of repetitive face rolling can help you unwind after a long day, she also doesn’t want you to sleep on the skin-nourishing benefits of these beauty tools. “Don’t be fooled by their gentle, zen vibes — these cool little babies are full of power as they stimulate facial circulation to enhance glow,” she adds.
“The roller itself helps remove excess fluid under the eye, while the cool jade stone constricts blood vessels to further minimize swelling,” says Joshua Zeichner, MD, board-certified dermatologist and director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. “They can be used by themselves or in combination with your regular undereye creams.” Pro tip: Pop one in the fridge (that drawer you store produce in, or even a dedicated skin-care mini-fridge) a few minutes prior to jade-rolling for an extra cooling effect.
We’ve rounded up 15 of the best jade rollers for you to incorporate into your skin-care and self-care routines, so it’s time to get rolling.
