Curious to know what products work well with our face roller? The face roller works best if there is a product that provides some slip to the skin, otherwise, you might pull or stretch the skin which can lead to sagginess! Instead, we are aiming for toned, lifted skin. The roller will also help with the circulation and lymphatic drainage. Check our how-to videos for more techniques.
The roller can be used as part of your morning routine with a serum to prep your skin for makeup. At night, using the roller with a serum will help the absorption of your skincare ingredients and improve their efficacy. Also, it will depuff and sculpt your face. It can be used for a few minutes daily and it’s okay to use over the eye area as well – be gentle! In the morning apply your serum after cleansing, then use your roller, then your moisturiser, sunscreen and your makeup. At night, cleanse, use your serum, roller and then any night cream or oil on top to seal everything off.
