Jade Rollers are the current “must have” beauty tool, and we understand why. They help serums penetrate deeper, stimulate your lymphatic system, reduce puffiness, we could go on and on. Today we are sitting down with Leila Carter founder of Jade Beauty Roller for Jade Rolling 101. Enjoy!
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO YOU START JADE ROLLER BEAUTY?
I started in the spa industry at 17, directing a four-story wellness spa in Shadyside, PA. When I got to Charlotte, I I fell in love with the product side of the spa world.
I stumbled upon the jade roller as I was researching ancient skincare techniques, and when I ordered one from Amazon to try, it broke on me after a week or so. I knew Estheticians deserved something better, so I set out to find manufacturing for a better jade roller. I knew this could be a space where I really helped people.
I recall a moment when I decided to go for it in my business. I was laying in bed, and I decided to die to every false expectation others had set for me. I thought: what better reason would I ever have than working every day for the health of others? Am I not the perfect person to do this? Life has literally prepared me in every possible way for this leap of faith. Leap of faith… hmmm. I thought about a visualization of taking an actual leap off of a mountain. The mountain was all of the things that everyone told me… (get a 9-5, work for the Man, live your life stagnantly, you’re making a stupid investment at a critical time in your life, ho-hum).
I visualized myself leaping from it, into my own future reality, where I was sacrificing what I want and doing the most I can every day in the name of God and helping others, and trusting that it would be enough. I felt a feeling of elation that I could only hope others get to feel someday. It was a swift uplifting rush, as if the hand of God reached down, grabbed mine, and whisked me back up onto the mountain, but this time the mountain was built of everything that HE intended for my life’s purpose. I let go and I trusted my destiny, if I rise it will be because He gave me the strength everyday to serve others to my fullest potential.
WHAT MAKES YOUR JADE ROLLERS UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT FROM ALL OF THE OTHER ROLLERS OUT THERE?
Our jade rollers have the sturdiest construction of any on the market.
Most on the market are actually dyed, fake, plastic imposters. We take pride in our jade, authentically sourced from China (as it is a tool that originates in Traditional Chinese Medicine). Love and care goes into curating every roller.
They are oiled to prevent squeaking, quality inspected, and stress-tested before leaving our shop. We know that our cherished customers can tell the difference and trust that our clients will honor the brand because of it. We are here to be a segway to your best health, so customer and quality have always been our focus.
Jade also means “beautiful stone”, which called for an expansion into other gemstones, firstly Rose Quartz and Amethyst. We think this shows our commitment to be ever-expanding and dedicated to helping others find their best complexion in the Roller Beauty category.
WHICH SKIN TYPES SHOULD USE THE JADE ROLLER PRO?
All skins, but especially those concerned with age management, sagging, fine lines, serum penetration. This is because the elongated shape best aids lymphatic drainage, and promotes lymph vessel health.
When the lymph vessels are not healthy, they leaky fatty acid into the tissues, leading to inflammation and the accumulation of adipose fat.
WHICH SKIN TYPES SHOULD USE THE CLASSIC JADE ROLLER?
All skins. This roller is the on-the-go version of the PRO.
WHICH SKIN TYPES SHOULD USE THE JADE ROLLER SPA?
The SPA is best for someone who will be consistent with their rolling protocol, as it works like a facial workout.
You can really see your cheekbones pop when you use it twice daily, and the feeling of deep relief in jaw pain and headache tension is a reason to use the spa all in itself!
CAN YOU JADE ROLL IF YOUR SKIN IS BROKEN OUT OR YOU SUFFER FROM ACNE?
Yes, it will help to reduce inflammation around the papule/pustule and flush out the toxins surrounding the breakout. We do not suggest rolling over active acne, as you could spread bacteria. Post-acne scars are greatly helped with a jade roller when combined with a whole plant serum.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I JADE ROLL?
As often as you want! When you are stressed, when you need to bring yourself back to the NOW, when you wash your face and want your serums to work better, before bed, in the car at a red light, whenever! We suggest morning and night.
WHAT TIPS DO YOU HAVE FOR SOMEONE NEW TO JADE ROLLING?
Don’t be afraid to do it wrong.
You really can’t go wrong, but there is a “best” way to do it, following the lymphatic drainage pathways to let toxins drain properly.
Pop it in the fridge for a cooling, constricting effect on dark circles in the morning or use it warmed in warm water over a serum to gently heat the surface of the skin.
