Treat Yourself to the Best Rollers
Recently you may have seen some of your favorite celebrities or social media influencers flaunting their fancy facial rollers. With so many different types and options on the market, how do you know which is the best for you? We’ve rounded up some of the most popular rollers and outline the benefits of each so you can get a grasp on this roller-coaster. (sorry)
Summer mornings left you feeling drab and puffy-eyed? Look no further than stone rollers. Within this category, there are two main moguls fighting for the top spot and their names are, rose quartz and jade.
The two have similar benefits which include reducing puffiness, dark circles, and improving the elasticity of skin and size of pores, and overall brightening your complexion. You simply roll the larger side of the roller across all parts of our face, and for more gentle places, such as your under eyes, use the smaller end. By simply taking the stones and gliding them around, your skin will look rejuvenated and help absorb whatever products come next in your routine. For even more relaxation you can put the stones in the freezer before use to experience a cooling and de-puffing sensation.
The difference between the two lies in the vibe of the stone. Jade is known to be a calming stone, while rose quartz is more popular for bringing in love — it depends on what you need. You can grab either at Sephora.
Next up is the micro-needling roller, which can be a bit more intense than a smooth stone running across your face. These rollers are pretty much as they sound, complete tiny paint-like rollers covered with mini spikes that penetrate into the top layer of your skin to stimulate collagen production. By rolling the needles vertically, horizontally and diagonally for no more than two minutes across your skin (before applying a serum), your skin will be glowing in no time.
The needles may sound scary but the benefits found are overwhelming. The roller helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, pore size, spots, acne scarring, and other pigmentation issues. At-home micro-needling rollers should be between 0.2mm-1.0mm and can be purchased easily at Stacked Skincare which has a range of options to fit your needs.
Last but not least, are the anti-aging germanium rollers — this was personally one of the first rollers I saw set the internet into a frenzy. This option from Nurse Jamie is best made for mature skin as it aids with reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging, while increasing firmness, blood circulation, and improving the overall tone and texture of your skin. You can either make the investment and buy the Insta-famous option from Nurse Jackie or once again try the more affordable YOUTHLAB Radiance Roller.
Take your pick and change your morning routine forever.
