Dermarolling! You’ve probably heard of dermarolling like you’ve heard of bullet proof coffee- which was met with the same sentiment …. “say what?”. Yes, I am telling you that I roll tiny needles all over my face all in the name of YOUTHFUL SKIN! 😉 (and also that I put BUTTER in my coffee!)
I’m usually pretty chill, pretty simple- I live for comfort, top knots, and cozy clothes … but when it comes to my skin care routine I go all out! 19 steps, 23 hours later, and 37 peculiar treatments tried – I’m all about it! I mean, if you told me that manure would keep my skin glowy and dewy, I’d dip my entire body in it HAHA Jokes aside, we’re all going to age and I’m cool with that because Asian don’t raisin y’all, but one day I too will be all Freddy Krueger-ed out 😉 But until then, I’m doing all the preventative crazy ass measures I can so that my skin looks as young and vibrant on the outside as I feel on the inside <3
Disclosure, I’m no skin professional so do your own research before including any new treatment into your routine, but I really love sharing with you what I do and what works for me. Enjoy this lil video of me rolling my face 😀
So dermarolling, lets talk about it! It’s the act of rolling hundreds of tiny needles across your face- personally microneedling your way into the future. Okay not really but you feel me. It signals to your skin that there’s been a minor injury which triggers your cells to send collagen and elastin production into hyperdrive! Both of which we lose as we get older. Hallelu tiny
dancer needles. Think of collagen like grapes and as we get older they shrivel up to raisins. Ya, what a fun visual right? So plump em up why dontcha! After I dermaroll my skin is always dewy, glowy, and soft … and a teeny bit red tbh.
Disinfect your dermaroller before and after use, cleanse your skin, apply a serum, dermaroll horizontally and vertically (be gentle, avoid your eye area, don’t go nuts on your nose, and roll don’t press), apply another layer of serum, I seal with a moisturizer, and then go to sleep to wake up looking like a damn queen.
I started with a 0.5mm dermaroller once a week (my skin can tolerate that) and then I moved up to 1.0. I personally think that anything larger than that needs to be performed by an esthetician. I’m just not trying to put my face through a meat tenderizing session ja feel! So check out dermarolling, and tell me what other treatments I should try, I’m an open book!
Have you heard of dermarolling? Do you do it at home? Have you seen a difference in your skin since doing it or having it performed on your face?
