Use Your Jade Roller After Putting on Your Skincare Routine at Night
Using your jade roller after slathering on your nightly skincare routine products to help your skin absorb them better. This will also help boost the effectiveness of your products’ ingredients. On freshly cleansed face, apply your toner, serum, oil, and moisturizer before you roll.

Always Cleanse Your Face Before Rolling
Remember jade rollers help your skincare products penetrate deeper into your pores? This means that if you fail to clean your face before rolling, you will just be pushing all the gunk your face has accumulated throughout the day deeper into your skin.
Start Rolling From the Center
Yes, you can focus and roll on any area you want, but it’s best to start from the center and work your way out. Start rolling from the sides of the nose and then out towards the ears. Next, work the area between your eyebrows and towards the hairline and so on and so forth. Experts say that this is the most effective way to get rid of lymphatic fluid buildup.
Always Clean Your Jade Roller After Use
This one should be a no-brainer. Put simply, if you fail to clean your jade roller, bacteria will breed on it and lead to all sorts of skin issues.
Be Firm, But Gentle When Rolling
Basically, if you find that your skin hurts as you roll, then you are most likely applying too much pressure. Your main goal is to relax and de-puff your, skin so apply gentle, but firm pressure to massage out swelling, without hurting your face.
Savor the Moment and Just Relax
Keep in mind that you’re giving your face a massage and it’s supposed to make you feel relaxed and refreshed so don’t be quick about it. Listen to music, light up some candles, and roll away like you’ve got all the time in the world.
Store Your Jade Roller Inside The Refrigerator
Jade rollers work better when they’re chilled. The chilled surface could help further soothe irritation and inflammation and smoothen your skin texture.
Now that you know what it takes to roll, take out your jade roller and give it a go following the tips above. And remember to relax and have fun while you’re at it.
