How to massage your face with a roller?

First cleanse your skin of sebum, impurities and make-up. Apply your favourite cream, oil or serum, place the roller on the skin and massage gently with it - do not press it strongly against the skin. Always massage your face in a direction from inside to outside and from bottom to top.

Start from the centre of the forehead and move the roller to the temples and hairline. Then massage from nose to ear and from chin to ear. Massage around the eyes and nose with a smaller stone. You can store the roller in the fridge to enhance its effect (such a cold roller will be great for morning puffiness under the eyes).
