Have you seen any ads or social media posts showing a woman with flawless, wrinkle-free skin using a Face Roller? This interesting device has recently gained popularity, but believe it or not, it actually has ancient roots. Gemstones and crystals, such as jade, were used in ancient China to bring life to the face and promote healthy skin. Like the ancient practice of gua sha, facial massage is all about taking a moment to take care of yourself and your skin’s health by gently massaging it to increase circulation, combat puffiness, and soften skin.
What is facial massage with a facial roller?
A facial massage roller is a tool used to massage the skin, especially the face. It is made up of balls of stone, usually jade or rose quartz, attached to a handle. Some facial rollers have two stones, one on each side, and they are usually of different sizes to reach small areas of the face.
If you search for front rollers online or in a store, you can find several options with stones of different colors and sizes. The most common types of facial rollers are:
– Jade: this green stone is known for its cooling properties. You will notice that the jade remains fresh even after several minutes of massaging the skin.
– Rose quartz: Rose quartz is a hard stone that retains its temperature, so you can keep your roller in the refrigerator and you will get a pleasant sensation of freshness while you use it.
– Amethyst: Amethyst helps to oxygenate the skin and is used to remove dead skin cells, making your face look brighter and more even.
– Obsidian: This black crystal is often used to ward off stress and, when used on the skin, helps reduce fluid retention and improves skin tone.
Facial roller: Does it work?
The benefits of the face roller are numerous, including its ability to stimulate blood circulation, cool and smooth the skin, and reduce puffiness. However, the facial roller does not treat skin problems or even acne, and it does not slim the face, which is a big mistake.
There are also many “fakes” that are not made with real natural stones. Stone-like materials are sometimes stained and treated with chemicals to give them the same smooth look, but they are not stone at all. In this case, using a roller on the face can be dangerous and cause irritation.
If the stone feels like plastic to the touch or sounds when you tap it against a hard surface, it is probably not a real stone. If you can easily scratch it or if it has air bubbles, it’s probably a fake stone. Also consider the cost. Very cheap front rollers may not be real stones. That doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars to buy one, but you should pay around $50 or so.
What are the benefits of facial rollers?
The Face Roller can be done at home and is an easy process. It can help skin care products penetrate and give skin a natural glow, but scientific data on its effectiveness is scant and many claims about its use are anecdotal.
The main benefits of face rolling are:
1. Reduce swelling
Using a face roller promotes lymphatic drainage and reduces water retention in the skin, which leads to puffiness. You can use a roller to improve eye bags and cheek puffiness.
2. Stimulates blood circulation
Massaging the skin with a natural stone stimulates blood circulation, making your face look brighter and healthier. A study published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine found that facial rollers helped improve blood circulation when used for 10 minutes a day for five weeks.
3. Refreshes the skin
Stones like jade and rose quartz have cooling properties and help soften skin, leaving it looking invigorated and refreshed. The coolness can also help relieve tension in your jawline and around your temples.
4. May Reduce Signs of Aging
When you improve blood flow and reduce water retention, you get smoother, more supple skin. Using a face roller can make you look refreshed and have anti-aging effects as it evens out your skin tone and reduces under-eye puffiness. Also, if you are using an anti-aging product, massaging your face has been shown to amplify its benefits by improving its absorption.
5. Improve your mood
Just as massaging the shoulders can have calming and uplifting effects, gently massaging the face can also have positive effects. It relieves tension and can be quite therapeutic, helping to reduce stress and making you feel cared for.
6. Relieve tension
The calming and cooling sensation of facial massage can help relieve headaches and nasal congestion. The gentle facial massage promotes lymphatic drainage, stimulates blood circulation and relaxes the mind.
How to use a facial roller
A facial roller massage can last five to ten minutes for maximum effect. If you only have a minute, that’s fine, because the massage will still have a cooling and anti-swelling effect. You can use your face roller every day as part of your skincare routine, but even if you do it a few times a week, you’ll reap long-term benefits.
This is how a face roller is used:
Start by applying a natural cream or oil to your skin. The facial roller works the product’s ingredients deep into your skin for the best results.
Start rolling up, staying in one direction. Don’t go up and down.
Divide your face into four parts and roll up about five times on each part until you have covered the entire area.
Massage your neck and jawline first, starting on one side and working your way to the other.
Then go up to your cheekbones.
Then go under your eyes and up to your eyebrows.
Finish by rolling your forehead.
After your facelift, be sure to clean your roller with mild soap and warm water. Then place it on a clean towel to dry.
You can find facial rollers online and in many health and beauty stores. It’s best to buy one from a reputable company that guarantees the stones are genuine, and you should probably avoid the cheaper options as they are more likely to be fake.
Risks and side effects
Facial massage is safe and beneficial when done correctly. It is very important to choose a legitimate and high-quality device. Using a plastic roller made with synthetic dyes and polymers can cause skin irritation and rashes. Find a reputable company and buy a natural stone roller from them. You should also pay attention to the type of cream or oil you use on your skin before using the roller.
The face roller helps stimulate blood circulation, improves complexion, reduces puffiness, and gives you a natural glow. In addition to its benefits for the skin, facial massage can also improve mood and relieve tension. To massage the face, simply roll gently upwards, covering every part of the face. This process should take five to ten minutes and should be done three to five times a week.
