A trend rolling into 2018 is the use of face rollers and facial massages in our skincare routines. If you haven't heard of this, just keep a scrolling eye on your Facebook feed, it'll pop up soon.
What are the benefits of face rollers?
Face rollers work to increase circulation to the face which in turn helps increase cell turnover. Face rollers also improve the overall muscle tone and texture of the face.
Increased blood flow
Massaging with a face roller helps increase blood circulation to the face and neck area which helps bring more oxygen to the skin cells and ultimately improve skin tone and texture.
Flushes the Body of Toxins
This increased circulation also helps the body's lymphatic system carry toxins away from the body.
Improved Skin and Muscle Tone
Facial skin vibrates at 6,000 times per minute, this provides ample stimulation to firm and tighten the skin. Ultimately this improves the overall elasticity of the skin. This also helps improve the contour of the facial muscles surrounding the neck, eyes, and forehead.
What are the different kinds of face rollers?
There are many different kinds of rollers from a 24K Gold Bar to a jade roller, but what do they do? Glad you asked.
A completely manual tool, the jade roller promotes improved blood circulation and skin tone, while also encourage lymphatic drainage, and eliminating toxins from the body. It does have some anti-aging benefits. Regular use of the green roller helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and helps to reduce puffiness and inflammation.
24K Gold Bar
Almost unsurprisingly, this type of face roller is all the rage in Japan and Taiwan. This roller actually vibrates 6,000 times per minute, working to stimulate blood flow and facial muscles. This stimulation helps tighten the facial muscles to improve the look of skin and instantly gives you improved facial sculpt and contour. With continued use, this can reduce the look of wrinkles on the face, forehead, eyes, and neck. This roller also has the added bonus of being waterproof so you can use it in or out of the shower!
This metal is made of an alloy of iron and chromium and compared to its neighbors, it's actually much more hygienic; one of the big reasons medical surgical tools are made out of this metal. An added benefit of having a metal face roller is the cooling effect which helps reduce puffiness and inflammation. Aside from helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, this type of face roller can help release tension in the facial muscles, which helps prevent the development of new wrinkles.
