You've seen them all over the 'Gram and on Pinterest. Your bestie uses it and sometimes, babies do too. You know what I'm talking about, do you? The face roller, of course! Undoubtedly, it's one of the most popular beauty tools out there! It's dainty, pretty and usually made from precious stones like jade, amethyst rose quartz and obsidian. Face rollers help in lymphatic drainage, improve blood circulation and skin elasticity. A good quality face roller made from original precious stones is expensive and delicate to hold. If you've recently purchased a face roller, we're going to teach you how to clean it and take care of it.
The Right Way To Clean & Care For Your Face Roller
Face rollers need to be cleaned and disinfected after every use. An unclean face roller will spread dirt and bacteria on the skin leading to breakouts. Avoid placing your face roller under a running tap or submerging it in water as water can erode the metal part of the face roller. What you should be doing is dipping a microfiber cloth into a bowl of warm, soapy water and wiping the roller with it. Wipe the roller with a damp cloth and leave it on a clean towel to air-dry.
Please Note:Face rollers are delicate beauty tools. One must not use any harsh chemical, alcohol or acetone to clean the stone. Also, avoid using plain soap. It will damage the stone and the metal. Two pumps of face cleanser mixed with water should be good enough.
Many people tend to pop their face rollers in the fridge. After all, using a chilled face roller on the skin over a sheet mask after a long day at work feels blissful. While there's nothing wrong with keeping it the fridge, you should be keeping it separately and not near food items. The bacteria roaming around the fridge can settle on your face roller and imagine that touching your face? The horror! Keep the face roller in a separate container or shelf for hygiene purposes.
Also, face rollers are delicate beauty tools. You don't need to apply too much pressure while rolling. Be gentle as this will prevent the face roller from breaking. Speaking of breaking, if your face roller is made from original jade or rose quartz, it can break into pieces if it falls to the floor. Always keep the face roller in a dry, cool and safe place.
