With many people in lockdown across Australia, you can bet we’re missing something almost as much as the hairdresser - and that’s the facialist! Whether you’re a regular at the aesthetician, or you just like to occasionally treat yourself to some pampering, facial massage has many comprehensive and proven beauty benefits. That’s why we encourage you to give DIY facial rolling a try!

How do i use it

The perfect addition to your lockdown skincare routine, Nutrimetics Contouring Facial Roller ‘works out’ your skin to help visibly improve tone and elasticity. Use it daily to achieve a lifted and contoured appearance. This act of a face rolling massage over the skin (optionally with a booster, oil or serum) is key to draining excess fluid and, with regular use, will firm and lift skin appearance.

What is a Contouring Facial Roller?

You can enhance your skincare ritual with a facial roller massaging tool to firm, tone and boost circulation. With its rolling motion, it also releases tension and stress in the facial muscles. Use it daily to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness, tone and firm appearance of skin for a visible glow and encourage a natural detoxification process.

What is a Contouring Facial Roller

How do I use it?

Apply to cleansed skin with either your favourite serum, oil or moisturiser. Starting at the chin, roll from the centre outwards and upwards in each section of your face along the contours of your face. Roll upwards from the base of neck to the jawline for a firmer looking profile. For best results, use 5-10 minutes daily. Appling your facial massage with an oil, booster or serum not only feels amazing and sensorial, it also improves product absorption and penetration of active ingredients.

What are the benefits

 

What are the benefits?

Face rolling works on so many levels, from stimulating blood flow so you get more nutrients and oxygen to your skin, to draining fluid, to giving a deep-tissue massage. It’s so easy to roll away wrinkles. Just spend a couple of minutes during your beauty ritual and give yourself a facial massage. Make it part of your daily routine.

 

How quickly will I see results?

Use 2-3 times a week for at least five minutes, and you’ll see the difference in a couple of weeks.

TOP TIPS

  • Keeping a consistent skincare routine and incorporating your roller can help firm and tone up your complexion.
  • An especially beneficial way to store your Facial Roller is in the fridge before use. The cold will calm any inflammation and leave your skin feeling refreshed.
  • Facial tension happens! It’s a natural occurrence in your body in response to emotional or physical stress. By gently rolling your Facial Roller all over your face, focusing on your temple, you can feel refreshed and relieved as soon as the tension strikes. It’s the perfect Pandemic skin tool.
  • Use over Ultra Care+ Hydrating Bamboo Sheet Masque to intensify your treatment and promote deep hydration.
