You’ve probably seen the pretty looking Rose Quartz and Jade facial rollers but they’re more than just eye-candy for the bathroom cabinet – they have a whole host of benefits to our skin and wellbeing. Try them once and become a rolling convert!
In a similar way that massaging the skin works when you have a facial, using a face roller is like having a mini DIY treatment in the comfort of your own home.
Improves blood circulation. Using a face roller can stimulate blood flow to the face, which can help to make your skin look healthier and brighter.
Decreases puffiness. Rolling may also decrease puffiness in the face by stimulating lymphatic drainage. If you roll your face in the correct direction you can aid the natural lymphatic drainage process.
Cools and soothes your skin. If you keep your roller in the fridge or use a naturally cold stone like jade, it will cool and soothe your skin and give you a calming massage.
Makes skincare products work harder. Rollers are best used with a serum, oil or moisturiser to help the it glide across your skin. This may help to distribute the product better and aid the absorption, making your skincare work better.
Relaxation and reduced anxiety. A 2008 study suggested that facial massage reduces anxiety for some people. The process of rolling the face and relaxing the muscles can be incredibly relaxing, meditative and restorative for some people.
How to use a facial roller
Apply your serum, face oil or moisturiser to help the roller glide across the skin.
Start at your neck and roll upward. For best results, roll up, not back and forth.
Roll from your jawline to your ear on both sides using gentle pressure. You can continue this motion all the way from your jaw to your cheekbone.
Roll from your forehead up toward your hairline.
Roll flat over your eyebrows horizontally.
Do this every day after applying skincare for a few minutes for maximum benefits.
