THE BENEFITS OF JADE ROLLING
IT’S EASY. It doesn’t take a lot of instruction or practice. (I think this is important to consider because when something is easy, we’re more likely to actually do it.)
PRODUCT PENETRATION. Jade rolling is an effective way to help skincare products penetrate more deeply.
LYMPHATIC CIRCULATION. Jade rolling is helpful for microcirculation of fluid, or lymph. This means that it can help reduce puffiness (in some cases).
BENEFITS OF FACIAL GUA SHA
IMPROVES TOTAL CIRCULATION. Facial Gua Sha helps improve lymph circulation (and thus drainage), but it also improves the quality of blood circulation and energy (“qi”) circulation. This is an important distinction.
PRODUCT PENETRATION. Gua Sha can be performed with your moisturizing routine (you need at least a hydrating mist and facial oil), and it’s also a very effective way to help products penetrate more deeply.
RELEASE AND RELAX TENSION. Done correctly, Facial Gua Sha is a very effective tool for relaxing tension in the face and neck. Not only does it feel amazing, it softens tension from “poor face posture” (brought on by active facial muscles constantly forming a “worried” or “strained” face). We use Gua Sha to bring back a “relaxed” face, which in turn looks refreshed and more youthful (this is not unlike the intent of Botox).
SCULPT, CONTOUR, AND SHAPE. Facial Gua Sha uses a stroke that creates pressure and stretch at the same time, which makes it more effective than the jade roller for sculpting facial features like cheekbone and jawline. Gua Sha tools that are designed with shapes that fit around facial curves amplify this benefit even more.
FINE LINES, WRINKLES, AND TEXTURE. Theoretically, a jade roller can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but a Gua Sha tool designed with multiple shapes and edges can be used in so many more ways, and as a result, will be more effective. For instance, you can use a comb edge, or turn the tool on its narrow edge, and work with a quick and light stroke to smooth texture or lines. There are more options available when using a Gua Sha tool.
