Jade rollers have been used by the Chinese Emperors and Empresses since before the 12th century. In fact they have been found in the tombs of Chinese emperors, and some can today be found on display as part of the bedroom necessities of the Emperor in the Forbidden City Chinese royalty used the rollers to maintain smooth, young and ageless faces. Today the rollers have been rediscovered by European and American jet setters to attain those same resutls. There is also some evidence that using these rollers may help with sinus congestion and pain, and to relieve puffiness in the under eye area.
USING THE ROLLER FOR FACIAL CARE
The roller is moved with just the weight of the roller pressing the skin. No additional pressure is needed or of benefit. From the center of the forehead, moving either left or right, begin at the hairline, rolling slowly towards the ear. Repeat 3 to 6 times over the same area, then move down to the next area. Continue to the eye. The small roller can work the lids and under eye area. Continue rolling in strips from the corner of the eye to the ear with the small roller. Below the eye, again using the large roller, work from the nose out to the ear. Continue with upper lip, lower lip and the chin. At the chin follow along the lower jaw line to under the ear lobe. Then repeat with the other side. When finished, using the large roller, make sweeping rolls from under the chin to the collar bone working out to the side of the neck and starting each sweep from the chin. It is said that use of the rollers increases bloodflow, aiding circulation.
FOR SINUS PAIN AND PRESSURE
Dampen a washcloth and microwave about 10 seconds. Place over your forehead, eyes and cheekbones. Then, starting just above your eyebrows, using the smaller roller, roll from the center of your face as indicated above and continue down to just below your cheekbones. It is said that you will feel immediate reduction in pressure.
