The benefits of facial massage are well understood based on scientific studies that prove skin physiology affects the health of the skin. Firstly, post-operations, dermatologists and surgeons, often encourage massage of the healed wound area once the scar has formed. This is to reduce post-operation redness and hyperpigmentation. Massage essentially increases the flow of blood to a specific area. This can have many benefits, including encouraging the skin cells to function better and faster in terms of scar healing. It is also recommended for those who suffer from acne scars. In this article, learn more about the benefits of incorporating a rose quartz jade roller in your skincare regimen.
Benefits of Jade Rollers
There is now an efficient way to incorporate facial massage without having a facialist or an aesthetician perform it. This is in the form of an ergonomic tool we know as the jade roller. The great thing about the jade roller is that it is cost effective and does not require electrical power. It is also a very safe device, according to accredited dermatologist Dr. Teo Wan Lin. This ancient tool is actually very ingenious. It incorporates two very important factors that helps to improve facial scarring, as well as to tighten and lift your skin.
The first is the ability to cool down your skin through the use of a stone. Natural stones are at a lower temperature than the surroundings because of the principles of thermal conductivity. Rose quartz, in particular, retains its cold temperature constantly, even when in contact with body heat. Cold is anti-inflammatory, so while increasing local blood circulation, it can reduce the skin swelling and any inflammation, providing a cooling experience. It is also the perfect tool with an ergonomic design that does not require any special training to use safely and effectively. Unlike other rollers made of synthetic materials, the surface of natural stone rollers are smooth and employ a rolling action, which prevents the overuse of pressure. Hence, minimising any risk of frictional dermatitis or pressure related skin side effects.
Lymphatic drainage massage
It is also the perfect rolling tool for a lymphatic drainage massage. This is very important because we know that skin swelling or edema, is sometimes from water retention, due to poor lymphatic drainage. Studies are also certain on one thing – massage increases the quality of life in individuals, providing a form of relaxation. Incorporating a jade roller into your skincare regimen is exceptionally helpful. It is also a meditative act. Using it as part of a skincare routine can be helpful in a daily self care ritual.
Why is a Rose Quartz Jade Roller is better than traditional Jade Rollers?
Jade rollers are now considered an essential part of a skincare regimen. It is an ancient Chinese beauty tool that gained popularity as an efficient way to deliver facial massage in a relaxing and effective fashion, right in the comfort of your own home. With the COVID-19 pandemic causing us to shift our attentions to self care and home based facials, the jade roller has an important role because of the following.
User-friendly with an ergonomic design
Firstly, it is easy and safe to use. Designed in an ergonomic way, the jade roller has a larger piece of stone and a smaller one that allows for smooth rolling of the delicate facial skin. The smaller head of the jade roller is reserved for areas such as the under eyes, whereas the larger roller effectively covers areas like the forehead and the cheeks. The importance of using Jade rollers in your skincare regimen, according to accredited dermatologist Dr. Teo Wan Lin, is that it increases absorption of skincare ingredients significantly. It increases blood circulation and by doing so, whatever serums or moisturisers you apply absorb optimally into the skin.
Secondly, it allows for mechanical stimulation of the soft tissues. This means that the skin is able to produce more collagen. This is based on the principles of mechanobiology. Mechanobiology is the phenomenon whereby the skin’s cells produce more collagen in response to physical pressure. The jade roller does not require any special handling. It is a manual device, which makes it safe and effective. A well-designed jade roller has smooth edges and a sturdy design. Thus, the material of your jade roller matters.
Well, it seems that rose quartz jade rollers are more favoured than traditional jade rollers because of the following:
Adaptive to skin temperature
It is inherently cool, whereas true jade or usual green coloured jadeite stones that are used for green jade rollers are adaptive in nature to your skin’s temperature. This means that it tends to warm up when you come into contact with body temperature. Rose quartz, however, maintains a cool temperature throughout.
The inherent minerals present in rose quartz are selenium, magnesium, sodium, oxygen. These are minerals that may have effects on the skin when in contact. The durability of rose quartz is also a key consideration. Jade rollers can be very fragile. Those made with rose quartz are more durable.
Importantly, we want to highlight the use of a jade roller as a cost effective way to deliver a facial massage, right in the comfort of your own home. The following benefits are proven by clinical studies and should also be the reason why you should include a jade roller in your skincare kit. It improves lymphatic drainage and can also help to lighten scars, because it increases blood circulation. This can be helpful for individuals who have acne scars.
Increased cosmeceutical absorption
Using a jade roller increases the absorption of your serums because facial massage increases blood circulation. It also has the ability to tone and lift up your face because the pressure exerting from the rolling motion can stimulate your skin cells to produce collagen. It can also refine the pores and wrinkles, contouring your facial structure over a period of time, through principles of mechanobiology. Studies have shown via CT scans that after a facial massage, is a significant change in soft tissue structure. This is particularly relevant for individuals who want to maintain a lifted and toned facial structure.
