Well, according to InStyle, the Jade Roller has been “a staple in Chinese skincare routines” since as early as the 7th century! Additionally, jade rollers are believed to have healing and protective properties.
When using a jade roller, you’ll notice that there is a bigger size jade stone on one side and smaller size on the other. These are meant to be rolled across all parts of your face. What side you use is up to you!
But, again, what does that do for you? As InStyle reports jade rollers are believed to help with a myriad of things.

“Jade rollers are believed to boost blood circulation, reduce swelling, and can help products penetrate deeper into the skin. Basically, they’re supposed to be a quick, easy cure for daily skincare struggles like dark under-eye circles and puffiness. The increase in circulation can also help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. A jade roller can be used at room temperature or chilled in the fridge.”
An easy, inexpensive way to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and wrinkles? Count us in!
And what about the Gua Sha tools? What do those do?

Well, sort of the same thing. According to ELLE, Gua Sha is an angled stone made out of crystal, bone, or horn. And like the Jade Roller, the Gua Sha has also been around for hundreds of years, albeit a bit gentler than it is often intended in Chinese culture.
The tool is meant to be used to “firmly scrape the skin on the face to promote blood flow and energy redirection. Boasting claims of bright, improved skin, as well as a ‘natural facelift.’”
The “natural facelift” is pretty appealing, right? Why pay the hundreds of dollars when you can pay tens of dollars for something much less painful!
