We’re sure you must have heard about the fancy jade rollers, all thanks to the influencer community and social media that made it go viral. There’s no doubt that most people wondered if it truly works, or is it just another overhyped fad that does nothing?

Today we’ve got you an answer for you.

We talked to Dr Kiran Sethi, a widely renowned skin specialist from Delhi about the effectiveness of this new trend.

Dr Sethi helped us decode the functionality of jade rollers. “You cannot go to parlours for a facial massage every day, and that’s where jade rollers come handy. You can easily massage your own face daily. This will not only make your skincare routine more efficient but will also give you some stress-relieving benefits.”

She told us about 5 benefits that point to the fact that there is more to jade rollers than just being a fad:

1. Promotes better absorption of skincare products
“Jade rollers improve the infusion of the skincare product into deeper layers of the skin. This facilitates up to 30% better absorption by the skin. Moreover, the application process also becomes more efficient,” says Dr Sethi. “I often suggest using jade rollers with serums since it makes the skin absorb the serum better. It also increases the efficacy of the product,” she adds.

2. Helps soothe the skin
The best thing about jade rollers is that they are completely chemical-free. The jade stone glides across your skin smoothly, soothing your skin. The roller helps preserve the skin’s elasticity by avoiding any pull or tug, keeping wrinkles at bay.

3. It improves blood circulation
When you are massaging, the gentle pressure helps in stimulating blood circulation which leaves the facial muscles plump and relaxed. Doing this often promotes better circulation. With better circulation, an increasing amount of oxygen reaches your skin which gives you glowing skin.

“This process also encourages the lymphatic drainage which boosts the skin’s natural detoxification process, making it more clear and glowy,” says Dr Sethi.

4. Can relieve stress
Have you ever been gone for a facial massage and realized that it makes you feel relaxed apart from doing wonders for your skin? We all know that massages do help in relieving stress.

5. Reduces inflammation and puffiness
Dr Sethi says, “Using a chilled roller provides a natural cooling sensation which helps to calm the skin.” She further adds, “Massaging with a chilled jade roller helps in reducing the inflammation and also depuffs your skin.”

Using this regularly can help you with face puffiness, dark circles and fine lines.

So, include this in your skincare routine since it can be a game-changer for your skin.
