Do you know that from your mid thirties wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and large pores start living on your face and shamelessly they do not even pay any rent to you? Will you let them live on and multiply in number or will you do something about it? I have decided to roll them out and working on it since quite sometime. I REFUSE TO AGE, Do you? Welcome Jade Roller. Jade roller has become a backstage essential at fashion weeks and an essential pre-makeup beauty tool for Bollywood celebrities. One of the rising trends in the beauty industry is moving back to ancient methods or routines for skin care. Jade rolling is an ancient Chinese skin care routine for smooth youthful looking skin. Jade was primarily considered an ornamental royalty gemstone having healing powers too. I came across this beauty tool in a story I read online and impressed by the reviews and benefits, I ordered one for myself from Amazon a couple months ago.
This beauty tool has a large oval jade stone on one side for the entire face and a smaller oval jade stone, at the opposite end for the under-eye area, with a single gold wire holding the pieces in place; the handle is made of jade too, making it easy to hold and to roll. Its elegant, simple and effective design is very easy to use and carry around as well.
Jade rolling can be a part of your morning or night skin care routine or even both. The best way to use a Jade roller is to freeze it for about 15 minutes, just before use. Also, if you are a fan of running ice all over your face and believe in its benefits, trust me this is a mess-free, water-conserving way to do it with visible benefits. I do Jade rolling atleast thrice-a-week or anytime-I-want-to routine (sometimes to get rid of morning puffiness, due to late night sleeps). Usually, for me it is also a great way to relax or to keep my hands busy while watching Netflix at night.
MY JADE ROLLING PROCESS
1. Wash my face off any dirt or germs built up of all day.
2. Apply face serum to facilitate smooth rolling (you can use your favourite moisturising cream or essential oil too).
3. Rolling with an upward motion, moving it along the contours of my face ~ continuously rolling back and forth in the same spot a few times.
4. Next, using the smaller side of Jade, I roll it on the smaller areas like, under eyes, on nose, near lip corners.
5. Finally, roll on the neck too, because thats where ageing begins
I do it for a good 15-20 mins. As I began to use it regularly, I noticed an overall improvement in my skin tone, my dark circles have lightened and there is a significant reduction in pore size. Additionally, my face started looking slimmer, and skin around my eyes became firm too. I absolutely love the cool feeling I get once a freshly- frozen Jade roller touches my face; I almost instantly feel a tightening action happening right in there.
In this picture, please ignore my makeup (as thats not how I jade roll, I have a clean mess free face as my night routine) here I quickly took these pictures before leaving for a lunch date with friends.
TIP: Dip a soft cloth into soapy water and gently wipe your jade until it is clean. Do not scrub at it, as scrubbing can scratch the surface. Also, take care to avoid immersing it in the soapy water and dry it completely before storing.

Okay so coming back to the title, probably its just an exaggeration, that “I Refuse To Age”. We all want to age for the wisdom and experience that comes along with it, but who wants to look old, not me atleast, till the time I have such preventive means I will keep doing my best. Will you do too?
I highly recommend that everyone incorporates a jade roller into their skincare routine. I know I have seen many benefits from it! I hope you found this blog post informative and helpful for when you decide to give it a try!
