Face Roller: Everything You Need to Know About the Ultimate Beauty Assistant

Surprisingly, in the era of high technology and multifunctional devices, the roller remains one of the most sought-after beauty accessories. No matter how smart gadgets become, when it comes to self-care, we want our assistants to be effective, safe, easy to use, and beautiful.

How does face roller work

The roller is simple and easy to use, with movements that are almost intuitive. It can be used to massage the neck, face, and the area around the eyes.

Regular use of the roller promotes lymphatic drainage, accelerates metabolic processes, improves skin tone and quality, and enhances the complexion. However, the roller is not a magic wand, and you shouldn't expect instant results after a single use. Visible results can be observed only after three to four weeks of regular use.

Benefits of Using a Facial Roller:

— Improves blood circulation, resulting in radiant skin.

— Reduces puffiness by promoting lymphatic drainage, particularly under the eyes, and helps define the facial contour. 

— Sculpts the face: Regular massage helps tighten and firm the skin. 

— Enhances the effectiveness of skincare products: Using the roller over serums, creams, or sheet masks helps them penetrate more effectively. 

— Improves mood: Gentle massage movements aid in relaxation and reduce anxiety. Facial massage can be seen as a form of dynamic meditation. 


It is not recommended to use the roller on any kind of skin eruptions, especially during acne flare-ups. Avoid massaging areas with wounds or large skin lesions. During the ritual, steer clear of moles, warts, and skin tags if you have them.

Massaging is contraindicated when feeling unwell, having a fever, or experiencing a cold. 

How to Choose

The roller is an accessory that you will use daily on your face, so it's important to choose one made of high-quality materials. It's better to opt for gadgets made of natural stone. Some cheaper models may be made of stone and plastic, painted to resemble natural jade or agate.

Rollers made of natural stones have similar properties, so there's no need to choose based on skin type. Select a stone based on tactile and visual preferences. 

Usage Guidelines:

  1. Cleanse your skin and apply serum or cream. Without a moisturizing base, the massager may stretch the facial skin or accentuate wrinkles.
  2. Perform all roller movements along the massage lines, from bottom to top and sideways. Start by massaging one part of the face, then symmetrically massage the other half.
  3. Clean the face roller after each use. Rinse it with water and soap or facial cleanser, then dry it with a towel. Do not soak the roller in water.
  4. You can cool the facial roller before use, but avoid storing it in the refrigerator as excessive cooling can have a negative effect on capillaries.
