DERMA ROLLER - NETTOYANT DE PORES
A derma roller, AKA a skin needling device, features a cylindrical body attached to a long handle. The cylinder is covered in tons of little needles that individually prick the surface of the skin, creating what are known as ‘micro-injuries’. Simply pick up the handle and roll the body of the device over the skin…well, that’s technically how it works. But, there are a lot of other things to take into consideration before getting rollin’.
We’re not asking you to inflict injury on your complexion for no reason — there are so many benefits to this practice. After micro-injuries are created, skin has to work extra hard to repair the ‘broken’ cells, which in turn accelerates the production of collagen and elastin. These key proteins are produced less effectively as we age, resulting in the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
Many people are curious about what using a derma roller feels like, and despite the fact that many needles are involved, it’s a lot less painful than you’d think. The thin, short nature of the needles means you’ll barely feel it at all. You may experience slight discomfort or redness after using your derma roller, but at worst, it’ll feel like a mild sunburn.
As a derma roller encourages collagen and elastin production, it may have benefits that include the softening and blurring of physical ageing signs. It also works wonders for loose or thinning skin, both of which are also directly related to these important natural proteins.
Derma rolling may be also beneficial for a range of other skin types, including scarred, dehydrated and hyperpigmented. Regular derma rolling may fade acne scars in particular, as these are often quite rooted in the skin’s layers, which the micro-needles are able to reach. Even if you have Acne you can use a derma roller — just ensure you’re not rolling over active pimples, and are sterilising the needles after every use.
Derma rolling also means that the top layer of your skin is shed in the process, encouraging effective skin cell turnover. This works wonders for those experiencing hyper-pigmentation in the form of darkened or lightened spots, as shedding away surface layers ensures the new skin isn’t affected by discolouration.
You can even use your derma roller on your under eye area to plump and smooth away bags , and on the lips to encourage an enviable pout.
This Derma Roller has very tiny needles, 0.5mm
HOW IS IT USED???
To prep skin for using a derma roller, first ensure it’s thoroughly clean by using a bathing glove. We recommend double cleansing to truly lift away any dirt and imperfections, especially those from a little deeper in the pores. Next up is a good soap the "24K GOLD SOAP" , which will help smooth away any excess dead skin and give your skin the perfect canvas for derma rolling.
Then, it’s time to slick on your favourite our "MAGIC CREAM - SNAIL EXTRACT" (although, it’s important to know your stuff — more on that later). Apply as you usually would, and then begin rolling across the face, working in all directions. Make sure you’re a little lighter around the under eye area and on the lips, or in any areas where your skin is typically delicate.
Apply a second layer of your serum once you’re done rolling, and that’s it! You’ve successfully derma rolled for the first time. You can repeat this practice a few times a week at the most, but it’s also totally fine to leave it as a once a month or fortnight kinda deal — just do what your skin seems to prefer.
