What is a face roller? A gadget or an Instagram star - Face roller has become every beauty enthusiast favourite, promising to de-puff, firm up and deep treat our dear skin. It is the ultimate skincare hack everyone needed in their skincare regimen. Face roller is a Chinese tool widely celebrated for its muscle relieving properties, lymphatic drainage, and to effectively reduce facial edema while making skin look fresh, lifted, and firm.

What Is Face Rolling?

Face rollers are usually made from jade, rose quartz, or any other crystal and are designed to be used for gentle facial massage and stimulate the lymphatic system to get rid of toxins, relieve muscle tension, reduce puffiness and boost blood-flow to enhance the glow. The regular practice of face rolling massage with serum or face oil is ideal to drain the excess fluid from the face, tone, and uplift the skin. 

How To Use A Face Roller

  • First and foremost, always use the face roller in upward and one direction. Never roll up and down. 
  • Repeat up to five upward rolls in each area. But, first, roll outwards under the jawline.
  • Next, use the face roller towards your hairline, under cheekbones, and then along with them.
  • Lastly, roll flat along the brows, and then upwards on the forehead. Also, work slowly over the neck and jawline.

Run Hot and Cold

Face rollers tend to be cool to touch, but you can always boost the cryo action by refrigerating them for a few minutes. Because when you use them cold and roll towards your lymph nodes, you’re actually moving the fluid retention and de-puffing your face. However, always remember that timing is everything, cold rolling is ideal for mornings when you’re at your puffiest. A chilled roller to the visage a pretty eye-opener that will instantly help in lymphatic drainage! Do not be afraid to run it under your eyes to stimulate the blood flow and reduce the darkness. 

A roller immersed in warm water for 30 seconds is effective as it helps your skincare products penetrate better. Using a warm roller after a serum or face oil application makes the product more pliable and increases absorption.  

All those lazy peeps who put up makeup on but never manage to take it off, we advise you not to wait till you hit the bed. Cleanse as soon as you get home and then before bedtime, indulge yourself in some beauty ritual with nourishing serum or face oils accompanied by a warm roller to rejuvenate and clock in that much-needed zzzs.
