Acne is the worst. Whether you’re a teenager or an adult, painful pimples and cysts can be embarrassing and downright annoying. painful.

Technically speaking, acne is an inflammatory skin issue where oils and dead skin cells clog hair follicles. When this happens, viola, you have a zit. 

The frustrating thing about acne is there’s not one fix to get rid of it. One product might make it better and what product might make it worse—and it feels like there’s no way of knowing what to use!

Luckily, there are things that you can do that are universally helpful, like drinking water, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding touching your face. 

But what about ice rollers? Could they help with acne prone skin?

That’s what we’re getting into today! 

This post is dedicated to breaking down whether or not ice rollers are good for acne. Here are the details:

Ice rollers are great for acne. They provide a ton of benefits that can help soothe, prevent, and treat those pesky pimples. 

This is just one reason we recommend an ice roller be in everyone’s skincare routine. Here’s more on the benefits of ice rolling. (Yes, it’s good for even more than acne!) 

And, if you’re sitting there like, “Skincare routine? What skincare routine?” It’s time to start one! 

You can use this post to help you assemble one, and then grab the HOT MINUTE PLANNER, which is literally a planner just for your skincare. It’s a game-changer. 

Just remember, ice rolling needs to be a part of that routine. ;) 

How Does Face Rolling Help Acne?

How Does Face Rolling Help Acne?

Ice rolling helps acne in a few different ways! 

First of all, it helps prevent acne by boosting hydration and decreasing the production of face oils. 

When your skin isn’t properly hydrated, it produces extra oil. That extra oil then clogs your hair follicles and causes acne. So, ice rolling (especially combined with a quality moisturizer like the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL) is super helpful for acne prevention. 

Ice rolling can also be helpful to soothe acne, because the icy metal roller can reduce inflammation and ease some of that pain and swelling that comes with breakouts! 

Finally, ice rolling can help treat acne by promoting cellular turnover and lymphatic drainage. Cellular turnover is how quickly your body sheds old skin cells and generates new ones, which can heal and reduce the appearance of acne quicker. 

Lymphatic drainage is when you stimulate your lymphatic system to process and expel the excess toxins and fluids in your body (gross.) These things can contribute to acne and inflammation big time! 

Long story short... ice rolling is a must-have tool for managing any kind of acne!

The best face roller for acne is by far the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER. First of all, it’s not just a facial roller, it’s an ice roller too!  

That means you get benefits like lymphatic drainage, increase blood circulation, and cellular turnover PLUS hydration, reduce inflammation, and pain relief. (This is why we much prefer an ice roller over a rose quartz roller or jade roller.) 

The HOT MESS ICE ROLLER is super high quality, with an aluminum roller that gets super icy in just about 15 minutes in the freezer. It’s not flimsy or squeaky, but super durable and innovative for smooth sailing (we mean “smooth rolling”) all the time. 

The handle is ergonomic and silicone for a super comfortable fit for daily rolling. Oh, and it’s pink, which is pretty fucking awesome. 

The HOT MESS ICE ROLLER also has a cute matching SLEEPING BAG to keep it clean in the freezer (or while traveling). And, it pairs perfectly with the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL for regular use... like 7 times a week, guys. 

Oh, and if just one face rolling tool isn’t enough in your toolkit, may we also recommend the PINK BALLS FACE MASSAGER. The discotheque balls and intuitive (and phallic) shape is perfect for sculpting your jaw and further upping your lymphatic drainage game.

But, yeah, we’ve got the stuff. You can find these skincare tools at The Skinny Confidential Shop! (Also, they’re available at Nordstrom and Revolve!)
