Ladies, get ready for the face roller takeover.
There’s a wellness movement taking the world by storm, and it has women everywhere focused on doing things that make them—both mind and body—feel great. This means anything from meditation and yoga to book clubs and skincare. We’re sure you’ve seen them all over your Insta feeds: photos of girls in clay face masks and sheet masks, soaking in bath bomb-colored tubs, or lounging in robes and painting their nails. #Selfcare is the name of the game—and it seems like lately, everyone’s playing.
This wellness trend is also causing a resurgence of popularity in lots of care-focused beauty products and services. This means a trend towards cool and new innovations for obtaining clear skin (dermaplaning, anyone?), as well as some really old-school tools making a comeback.
We’re talking about traditional Chinese derma (or face) rollers.
Face rollers are often made of gemstones like rose quartz or jade, and they’re a massive hit with millennials (and not just because they’re refreshingly affordable). Harper’s Bazaar recently ran an article on face rollers’ skyrocketing popularity, noting that data collected from “Pinterest’s 48-million beauty lovers” shows that “‘derma roller’ pins were saved 345% more in 2017” alone. Plus, there’s an army of influencers loving and promoting face rollers constantly—and that exposure is major.
Face rollers have been used for centuries to refine and enhance skin elasticity. According to InStyle, it “depuffs your face in seconds.”Yes, you read that right. Seconds.
Jade, in particular, has long been considered by the Chinese to be a symbol of beauty, grace, and longevity. It also has properties that allow it to remain cold on contact (no matter the weather), which also means jade rollers are the perfect tool to close pores, tighten skin, and increase lymphatic drainage.
Here’s even more exciting news:
Our friends at GingerChi have created a youth-enhancing jade roller that’s the perfect new addition to your skincare arsenal. It’s called the Chi Roller, and it might be the beauty industry’s newest, best-kept secret (until now).
GingerChi’s new Chi Roller is made with high-grade Xiuyan jade and has been proven to improve skin’s elasticity, reduce puffiness, dark circles, improve circulation, aid inflammation—plus, it can even help reduce sinus conditions and congestion.
Use the Chi Roller on your face anytime—morning or night—or roll it over your acupressure points around the collarbones, breast, wrist, and arms to improve your overall Chi.
Never used a face roller?
Face rollers typically have a short handle for easy handling of the tool, and a smooth or textured gemstone that—you guessed it—rolls. It looks a bit like a super tiny paint roller.
Once you’ve cleansed and moisturized your skin, use the face roller to massage your face for approximately 3-5 minutes. You can also cool it in your fridge ahead of time for an extra refreshing treat (and for a way to get rid of dreaded early-morning puffy eyes).
That’s all there is to it.
Keep calm, roll on, and try the GingerChi Jade Roller today.
