With gua sha stones and facial rollers taking the beauty scene by storm, it’s unsurprising that skincare tools have become a staple in most people’s routines. You’ll often see celebrities, experts and influencers talking about the ‘latest and greatest’ tools on social media, but what are the true benefits of facial rollers? And why should you invest one?
Facial rolling is an age-old art that delivers a range of brightening and tightening skin benefits. More than just a relaxing practice to add onto your skincare routine, facial rolling has the ability to promote a firmer and more sculpted appearance in a matter of minutes.
WHAT IS FACIAL ROLLING?
Facial rolling is a traditional Chinese beauty ritual that involves rolling a tool made from jade, gemstones, rose quartz or amethyst across the face to encourage lymphatic drainage and increase blood flow. This form of facial massage can reduce puffiness and stimulates skin creating a natural glow.
WHY IS IT BENEFICIAL?
Facial rolling provides a plethora of benefits. It increases blood flow, improves lymphatic flow and drainage and can reduce puffiness and inflammation. Facial rollers can also be used to massage skincare products, such as serums and moisturisers, into the skin.
This practice also works the muscles in your face that are less active. After just 10 minutes of facial rolling, you will notice that your skin feels firmer with a more tined and sculpted appearance.
In addition to the above, the roller cools and soothes skin, providing relaxation and reducing stress.
JOANNA’S FACIAL MASSAGE
When it comes to choosing a facial roller, the Joanna Czech Facial Massager is a superior option. Backed by extensive research and refinement, it is designed to work across the skin on a deeper level.
Joanna designed these massage steps to encourage your skin’s circulation, elasticity and tone, whilst also stimulating lymphatic drainage for a more sculpted appearance.
This routine is designed to be performed atop a 111SKIN mask to maximise the product’s efficacy. This treats the skin at several levels (the epidermis, fascia and subcutaneous tissue) resulting in a truly transformed complexion. Made from aluminium and zinc alloys, the roller works to immediately lift and tighten the skin it works across. With an aluminium ball on either side, this tool targets each side of the muscle, instantly conditioning the face to become tighter and hold tension for a more sculpted appearance.
