STYLECASTER posted “Everything You Need to Know About Facial Rollers” featuring Dr. Purvisha Patel.
I’ve never been one for a bare-bones skin care routine because frankly, I find it boring. After a long day, there’s nothing I love more than indulging in the beneficial, but ultimately not-so-necessary products that make me feel better about other shortcomings, like not drinking enough water.
And even as a beauty editor, there are still a lot of things on my wishlist, like a facial roller. Unless you’re like me and super extra about your beauty regimen, those two words have probably never crossed your mind. And if you are adept to the ins and outs of beauty tools, then you’re probably thinking, “catch up girl!” Yes, I’m well aware that facial rollers have been around for quite some time, but honestly, I’ve been a little intimidated by them. So, I reached out to Dr. Purvisha Patel, board-certified dermatologist and founder of Visha Skincare to see what it actually is, how the heck you use it and if the hype is actually real.
Facial rollers are essentially paint rollers for the skin. They’re most commonly used to enhance blood circulation, which in turn helps products absorb into the skin. They also help reduce puffiness, which is caused by congested lymphatic channels.
