These three tools are all relatively new to me but they quickly took up residency in my morning and evening skincare routines. Each of these benefits the skin in a different and unique way. So in the name of Kinda Obsessed, it’s only fair that I officially spill the beans. Oh and I’ve teamed up this week with The Green Goddess Shop to give one lucky winner one of these babies! See below for how to enter.
Jade Roller Pro
Jade Roller Pro – This feels euphoric on clean skin as a facial massager – especially around my jaw line which tends to hold a lot of tension. Use the small end around your eyes + temples and the larger end for the bigger parts of your face. But jade rolling isn’t just a feel-good practice, it also “revs up circulation, de-puffs, improves skin elasticity and since it promotes lymphatic drainage, it’s detoxifying.” Try storing your jade roller in the fridge before using for a cooler experience.
The bodies lymphatic system has a few main functions including being responsible for ridding the body of toxins through lymph fluid which carries waste away from tissues via an extensive system of vessels. A buildup of lymph fluid in the face can result in dull, tired-looking, puffy skin. – Province Apothecary
I’m not going to lie, I’ve definitely been caught using this on my forearms, hands and neck too. For someone who sits at the computer a lot it’s like a mini God-send! My friend keeps hers in the car and uses it any chance she gets!
Jade rolling also helps oils penetrate the skin better making sure you are soaking up all your oil or moisturizer has to offer.
I like this video that talks about the benefits of jade rolling, how to roll and especially how to target lymphatic drainage.
The jade roller I have usually sells for $45 but is on sale at The Green Goddess Shop for $39 plus code LISA15 will save you 15% off your entire purchase. Shop here!
Stacked Skincare Micro-Roller
Stacked Skincare Micro-Roller – This little gem is getting a second spotlight in my Kinda Obsessed series and for good reason! Either this beauty is totally boosting my complexion or I’m a glutton for pain – all in all, I think the former. Basically you are rolling your face with a bunch of tiny needles. (Some people say it doesn’t hurt but I beg to differ!) And the premise is that by breaking down the skin, you stimulate it to build itself back up giving it a smoother, plumper and firmer appearance. Check out my experience here:
This roller lasts one month before it needs to be replaced. I assume this is because the needles dull after a month and also because you don’t want it to get too contaminated. You can use it all over your face including chin, lips, forehead and neck. Personally, I have very deep hot-dog-pack lines in my forehead (I mean why!? Is that genetic?) and I gotta say, I can totally see a difference after micro-rolling. SOLD! Shop here!
Also, like I mentioned in the video, I love following up this treatment with something super special and healing like May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon – a concentrated organic moisturizer staring blue tansy – this also doubles as an eye serum. Can’t get enough.
Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush
Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush – Maybe you guys have heard of dry brushing for the body but have you heard of dry brushing for your face!? Well, let me introduce you! Facial dry brushing is something you can do first thing in the morning. And the benefits are endless including reducing fine lines, dark circles, puffiness and giving you an instant glow.
I absolutely LOVE Julie Clark’s video on how to dry brush effectively; waking up the glands and stimulating the lymphatic system. An all around great tool for detoxifying, exfoliating and brightening. Plus did I mention how good this feels!?
