What is a jade roller and should I be using one?

We have been looking for a long time to find the right Face Rollers and Gua Sha. We finally found them: Mount Lai.

The name Mount Lai plays homage to Mount Penglai from Chinese mythology and was started by two childhood friends, Stephanie Zheng and Dave Nacianceno.

It all started with Stephanie’s grandmother’s jade roller, a Chinese skincare tool that’s been used for thousands of years. When Stephanie tried to purchase one of her own, it was difficult to find one with integrity of both quality and design.

They created Mount Lai to make this tool accessible to all. Their dream is that their jade rollers provide you with a 60 second daily self-care ritual for both healthy skin and peaceful mind.

We believe that the ritual of Face Rolling or Gua Sha can be part of any skin care regimen and will help to bring healing and wellness to your daily routine.

What is a Jade Roller

The jade facial roller is a Chinese skincare tool that has been used for thousands of years. Perfected throughout the centuries, this facial massager was built to have a cooling, soothing effect on the skin.

What are the benefits of jade facial rolling?

Besides improving overall health and radiance of the skin, jade rolling has a multitude of benefits.

  • Improves blood circulation
  • Reduces puffiness and inflammation of skin
  • Promotes lymphatic drainage
  • Relieves facial and jaw tension

How do you use a jade facial roller?

  • Start in the middle of the face and roll outwards across the cheeks.
  • Move to the eyebrows and roll upwards across the forehead.
  • Move below the lower lip and roll downward across the chin.

Use the smaller end for more delicate areas and harder to reach places, use the larger end for broad surfaces.

How often should you use a jade facial roller?

We recommend jade rolling twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening after washing your face. However, you can use the jade roller as many times as you want, whenever your face needs a moment of soothing calmness.

Jade rollers can be used in harmony with oils and serums for added penetration and absorption into the skin.

We suggest Face Rolling for:

  • Reducing puffiness
  • Applying product (serums/oils)
  • Soothing the skin

How do you clean a jade facial roller and where do you store it?

After each use, a soft microfiber cloth can be used to wipe the jade roller clean.

For a deeper cleanse, dip the cloth into a bowl of soapy water (water and a cleanser) before wiping the jade roller.

You can dry the jade roller using another dry cloth or let it air dry. If you find that your jade roller is squeaky after a wash, add a few drops of oil to the sides of the roller head.

The Mount Lai box is the perfect compartment for your jade roller to be housed in. Make sure the jade roller is completely dry before storage.

For an added cooling effect, the jade roller can be kept in the fridge.

What is a Gua Sha?

Gua sha has been practiced in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Perfected throughout the centuries, this jade gua sha tool was built to have a firming, lifting effect on the skin. 

What it does

Besides improving overall health and radiance of the skin, gua sha has a multitude of benefits.
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Reduces puffiness and inflammation of skin
  • Firms and lifts the skin over time
How to use a Gua Sha
  • Start with a clean face and prep skin with a facial oil or serum.
  • Keep the tool flat against the face and begin with the forehead. Scrape in an upwards motion from the eyebrows to the hairline.
  • Move to the cheeks and scrape in an outwards motion starting from the crease of the nose until the ear.
  • Move to the jawline and use the end of the gua sha tool with the two curves. Start from the chin and scrape until the ear. Gently massage the gua sha tool into the ear to release tension.
  • For the under-eye area, very gently scrape the gua sha from the inner corner of the eye outwards to the temple. Because the area is so sensitive, it is important to only apply light pressure.
We suggest Gua Sha for:
  • Manual lymphatic drainage
  • Relieving facial & jaw tension
  • Lifting & contouring of the skin
