Sick of waking up in the morning with puffy, inflamed looking skin? There are lots of things that can cause puffiness around the face – everything from diet to not getting enough sleep – but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it.

Massage rollers can be used to gently drain the lymphatic system, a part of your body which contains fluid and can lead to the appearance of puffiness.

Face rolling also improves the circulation, which means that more nutrients and more oxygen can get to your skin. This is important because it helps you to get that fresh, healthy looking glow.

How to use your facial massage roller

It’s really easy to get started using these massage rollers, but it’s important to make sure that you’re using the right technique:

- Always use the roller in an upwards motion, rather than rolling back and forth or side to side.

- Cover each area of the face five times. Start by rolling under the jawline, then up to the hairline and under the cheekbones. You can also roll along the brows and over your forehead.

- Consider keeping your massage roller in the fridge. The cool surface will help to tighten your pores, making your skin appear more even. It is also a refreshing way to wake up your skin and help to relieve any tension.

Try and use your facial massage roller several times a week, as the last step in your evening skincare routine. Some people choose to put on a sheet mask and roll over the top – this isn’t essential but can be a very relaxing and beneficial experience.
