If you’re a skincare buff, then there’s no doubt that facial rollers have become an integral part of your skincare routines. Massaging your face and neck with a jade, quartz, or any type of roller comes with a lot of skin benefits. Right from increasing blood circulation to toning your facial muscles, the advantages are many. However, some women have been experiencing breakouts after incorporating a facial roller into their skincare routines.
So, we decided to do a little digging to get into the crux of the matter. Scroll down to find out what we discovered.
- Reason #01: Not cleaning your face
- Reason #02: Using a dirty facial roller

Reason #01: Not cleaning your face
One of the main reasons why your skin might be breaking out after using a roller is because you’re massaging it on uncleansed skin. It’s essential to first clean your face thoroughly using a cleanser and only then use the roller or any other facial tool. Failing to do this can push the dirt and impurities deeper into the pores of the skin and lead to breakouts.
Reason #02: Using a dirty facial roller
Just like cleaning your makeup brushes is important to keep skin problems at bay, washing your face massage tools after every use is equally essential. During a facial massage, the oils and product residue gets transferred onto the roller. Using the roller without cleaning it first can accumulate bacteria and transfer it back onto the skin, inviting skin problems like breakouts.
Reason #03: Using the wrong product
While it's absolutely fine to use a facial roller on its own, most women prefer using it with a facial oil or serum. It helps glide the roller easily on the skin plus allows better penetration of the product into the skin. However, you should note that oils don’t work for every skin type, especially those with oily and acne-prone skin, should avoid it. Skip using any product along with your facial roller and see if that stops the breakouts.
