If you’re anything of a skincare enthusiast, you’d know that face massage rollers are having a huge moment in the sun RN. They not only promote better blood circulation, but also reduce puffiness and keep your skin looking healthy and glowing.
But if you have been using a face massage tool since a while and have never thought about cleaning it, then we suggest you do so RIGHT AWAY! Just like your makeup brushes, face massage tools also accumulate dirt, bacteria, sweat and oil that end up adding to your skin woes over time. Here are some simple tips to keep your face massage tools clean and germ-free every single day…
- Clean it after every use
- Do not run it under tap water
- Wipe with a microfiber cloth
- Avoid harsh cleansers
Clean it after every use
Unlike your makeup brushes that can be cleaned once a week, a face massage tool needs to be cleaned every single day, after every use. Cleaning your tool will increase its effectiveness by getting rid of excess oil, dirt and product buildup from your serums and moisturisers.
Do not run it under tap water
A common mistake people make when cleaning their face massage tools is to place them directly under running tap water. The minerals from water tend to tamper with the metal and result in quick erosion, which renders the tool useless after a while.
Wipe with a microfiber cloth
The best way to clean your face massage roller is by using a gentle soapy mixture and a microfibre washcloth. This procedure helps to get rid of all the impurities without harming the roller in any way. Dip a clean washcloth in the soapy mixture, wipe the roller with it and then let it air dry.
Avoid harsh cleansers
Face rollers are beauty tools made from precious stones that are really delicate and need to be given the right treatment. To ensure the longevity of the roller, avoid using harsh cleansers that contain alcohol or acetone as this could reduce the efficacy of the roller. Stick to using gentle baby soap or shampoo to clean it efficiently.
