Like many other notable trends, the topic of facial massagers was first promoted by the stars.

To keep their skin in the right condition, celebrities combine trips to the beautician with competent self-care. Therefore, do not be surprised that for many stars the main working tool for improving complexion is the notorious facial massage with a roller massager.

What is the benefit of this procedure

A facial massager does not guarantee a radical solution to problems, but it keeps the skin of the face in good condition, coping with the prevention of early age-related changes. 

  • Improves skin condition. In the dermis heated by massage, blood actively circulates, carrying nutrients and oxygen through the cells: the skin is rejuvenated and radiant. With regular use, skin tone can even out.
  • Tightens muscles. As you know, muscle structures weaken without exercise. Regular facial expressions are often not enough to keep the facial muscles in good shape, while roller treatment provides lifting and the absence of ptosis.
  • Eliminates swelling. Under the influence of the roller, the blood rushes to the skin - and thereby causes the outflow of lymph. Together with the excess fluid accumulated in the tissues, bags under the eyes, puffiness of the face “leave”, and toxins and toxins are removed along the way.
  • Relieves stress. Delicate touches soothe the skin, relax.
  • Enhances the effect of cosmetic preparations. Moisturizing, nourishing, regenerating creams penetrate deeper, their beneficial components are thus better absorbed.

How to choose a massager

There are various types of gadgets on the market. Among them there are complex vacuum, laser, oxygen, ultrasonic, and there are simple mechanical ones.

In general, two main types can be distinguished: polished metal and natural stone rollers. Jade rollers are nothing less than the legacy of Chinese emperors. They highly valued the properties of this beautiful and always slightly cool gem. Rose quartz, on the other hand, is designed to maintain a predetermined temperature: it can be held in warm water to better warm up the muscles or put in the refrigerator for a few minutes to soothe irritated skin.

Suitable for face roller massager made of natural stone, made of amethyst, rock crystal, black obsidian. However, any natural stone will do just fine if you know how to use a face roller, following natural curves - moving the device in only one direction along the massage lines, since the return movements will stretch the skin.

A separate position is occupied by 3D rollers- they give the most tangible massage effect due to balls with a ribbed surface at the ends, which comfortably grip the skin and allow you to deal with imperfections such as a double chin. They have a lifting effect.

How to use jade facial roller massager

  1. To begin with, we recommend that you cleanse your skin well and hold the massager in the refrigerator before use. This improves blood circulation even better and helps the components of the serum or cream work more effectively on the skin.
  2. Using the roller is simple: first apply cream or oil to your face, and then go over the massage lines with the roller until the product is absorbed into the skin.
  3. You should repeat the movements two or three times.
  4. Move up the back of the nose, from the base of the eyebrows to the temples, and also up to the beginning of hair growth, from the nose to the cheeks, from the corners of the mouth to the ears, plus from the middle of the chin to the ears too.
  5. Keep in mind: cosmetics are not used in intensive massage, as they prevent the rollers from grabbing the skin. No need to press hard on the roller, pressing it into the skin.
  6. Choose the pressure that is best for you so that you feel comfortable.

It is important to remember about the massage lines along which the massager works:

massage lines

  • from the center of the chin to the earlobes;
  • from the corners of the mouth to the tragus (center of the ear);
  • from the wings of the nose to the temples;
  • up the back of the nose;
  • from the inner corner of the eye up the eyebrow to the outer;
  • from the outer corner of the eye along the lower eyelid to the inner corner of the eye;
  • from the center of the forehead to the temples;
  • scalp - from the center to the periphery.

How to work depending on tasks

  1. Your next steps will depend on the task at hand. For example, to correct the oval of the face and make it clearer, draw a beauty gadget along the contour line from the middle of the chin to the ear, and only in one direction. If you drive the roller back and forth, then you can only stretch the skin. 
  2. To smooth wrinkles on the forehead, move the massager from the eyebrows to the hairline (even going to the hair) in only one direction - from bottom to top. We do not make return moves.
  3. To reduce puffiness under the eyes and smooth wrinkles, slide the roller from the nose to the temple. Each movement is performed only in one direction. We bring the roller to the temple, tear it off the skin, return to the nose and perform the movement again.
  4. To restore elasticity and youthfulness to the neck, move the roller massager from the collarbone to the chin in one direction - from bottom to top.
  5. At the end, do not forget to wash the roller. Follow the rules of hygiene - wash the device after each use under a stream of cool water. Do not use chemicals or aggressive cleaning agents. Do not forget about the regular maintenance and cleaning of the roller with a warm soapy solution or antiseptic.
