They are everywhere on social media. Inspirational photos, workout videos, and before and after comparisons. Facial massagers are the new favorite gadget for people who are into the world of beauty. Either the rollers or the stone ‘Gua-sha’are postulated as an essential in any toiletry bag.
In any case, they also arouse skepticism. Can a seemingly simple gadget really transform the look of my face? Yes and no. Of course, magic does not make or change your life. But they do have some of the most interesting benefits.
Its main virtue lies above all in the action of the massage itself. Although the stone from which the roller is made also has certain properties. Specifically, jade symbolizes purity, health and spirituality in oriental culture, where it has been used as a beauty ally for centuries.
Jade Facial Roller Benefits
The jade stone is credited with healing abilities. Among them, its ability to expel toxins, revitalize the skin and slow down cell aging. It also has soothing properties and improves the texture of the complexion.
But beyond the mineral that makes up the roller, what brings the most advantages is the action of the massage itself that is exercised with it. Consistency with facial massagers improves the appearance of the complexion. Firstly, because they stimulate circulation and relieve tension in the facial muscles.
They exert a kind of lifting effect that prevents and reduces wrinkles and expression lines. It also relieves inflammation and decongests the face, effects that are reinforced because the stone is also usually cold.
This massage helps to drain liquids and relaxes the facial expression, often conditioned by tension and grimaces. Improves the elasticity and firmness of the skin and also combats redness and acne. As if that were not enough, it is a great help to provide luminosity and reduce the appearance of bags and dark circles.
