You may have to book a treatment at the spa for a rejuvenating full-body massage, but you can give the same attention and care to your face simply with the help of Face Rollers.
Made with materials like jade, rose quartz, amethyst, or stainless steel, face rollers often look luxurious (they’re incredibly Instagram-worthy) and do pretty much as their name suggests.
A smooth stone or metal surface rolls over the contours of your face to provide an array of supposed benefits—from reducing puffiness and tightening skin to diminishing the look of wrinkles and allowing for products to be more readily absorbed.

Although jade rollers have been used in Chinese beauty rituals since the seventh-century, whether or not modern face rollers actually affect the look and feel of skin has become a hotly-debated topic in recent years as the practice has made a comeback.
