As the latest go-to skincare 'must have' and Instagram ‘star’, the face roller has become every skincare junkies skin necessity promising a plethora of benefits - to de-puff, firm up and deep treat your skin, but what is face rolling exactly, and are you doing it correctly?
What is face rolling?
Face rollers are usually made from jade, rose quartz or other crystals. These besuty tools are designed to gently massage the face and stimulate the lymphatic system to rid of toxins, decrease puffiness, ease muscle tension and stimulate blood-flow to increase your skin’s glowyness. The act of rolling over the skin (always with an oil or serum for no-friction) is key to draining excess fluid from the face that with regular use, will tone and lift the skin.
Some face rollers have two ends: one with a large-sized stone – intended for the forehead, jawline, cheeks, and neck – and one with a smaller stone, which fits snug under the eyes.
Why is face rolling so good?
According to many aestheticians, face rollers not only help to drain and contour the face, they’re also believed to help boost self-esteem, while jade rollers are said to shield users from negative energy. Plus, the stones stay naturally cold, so rolling in the morning gets the circulation going and helps calm inflammation and redness.
The benefits of face rolling
Facial roller lovers will generally use the tool over their favourite sheet mask to help the ingredients penetrate deeper into the skin, but you can also use a roller as the final step in your skincare routine for the same reason, to boost the absorption of products. Even more so, face rolling over makeup gives skin a beautiful healthy glow and helps achieve a more natural, less made-up finish.
How to use a face
1. Always do face rolling upwards and in one direction – never roll up and down.
2. Repeat up to five upward rolls in each area. First, roll outwards under the jawline.
3. Next, use the face roller to roll out, towards your hairline, under the cheekbones and then along them.
4. Lastly, roll flat along the brows, and then upwards on the forehead.
