What’s an ice roller?? One of the best fucking inventions EVER. It’s a personal massage tool with a comfy handle and a metal roller. You pop it in the freezer and take it out each day for the ultimate self-care experience.
There are soooo many benefits of ice rolling your face. Not only does it feel super fucking good, but it also tightens your skin, reduces puffiness, and makes your face totally radiant. In our opinion, it’s a must-have for everyone’s skin-care and self-care routines.
We love ice rollers so much, we actually have one of our own called the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER. And, our roller isn’t like any other face roller out there. Seriously, SO much research went into this thing to make sure it was perfect—and it’s damn near close to perfect.
What do jade rollers, rose quartz rollers, derma rollers, and gua sha tools all have in common? NO COOLING EFFECTS. To us, that’s essential. Plus, finding high-quality face massagers is super hard. That’s why our founder, Lauryn Evarts Bosstick made the best quality ice roller herself with an ergonomic silicone handle, all-aluminum roller, and gorgeous pink color. (We think that last part is pretty important, too.)
Okay, you’re sold on the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER, but when should you use it?? That’s a great question! Honestly, anywhere, anytime, but we’re dedicating our post today to the best times to use your HOT MESS ICE ROLLER. Let’s get into it:
When is the Best Time To Ice Roll Your Face?
First thing in the morning.
One of our favorite times to use the HOT MESS ICE ROLLER is first thing in the morning, like make yourself a cup of tea and ice roll before doing anything else.
Overnight, our face retains a ton of fluid (especially if you sleep on your stomach), making us look super swollen when we first look in the mirror. Plus, in the morning you’re just groggy and need a pick me up. An ice roller can reduce puffy skin AND help you feel energized for the day!
After a hot bath or shower.
Do you take crazy hot showers??? They feel so fucking good, but when you get out sometimes it seems like you just can’t cool down. Ice rolling can help with that! And, you can ice roll way past your face, take that shit down to your neck, tits, legs—anywhere.
After the moisturizer with the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL.
If you’re new to skincare, know that your routine should go cleanser, targeted treatments, toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, ICE QUEEN FACE OIL, and then sunscreen. The HOT MESS ICE ROLLER is great right after moisturizer with the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL.
The roller helps spread your products evenly over your face and the ICE QUEEN FACE OIL is the perfect companion to the roller for snatched, dewy skin. Your ice roller can also seal blood vessels at this stage in the skincare routine, which will help reduce redness, too.
After you take your make-up off.
Another great time to use your HOT MESS ICE ROLLER is at night after you take your make-up off, right before you apply our skincare products. It’s the BEST way to unwind and prepare for bed.
Hear that?? The HOT MESS ICE ROLLER can help you get your beauty rest.
In the sauna.
The sauna is great for skincare. [LINK SAUNA ARTICLE] It maintains your skin’s moisture barrier and all that sweating can clean out your pores to reduce acne. And, that’s not to mention all the other benefits of getting steamy in the sauna!!
But, when you’re spending time in the sauna you do have to be careful of overheating, especially around your face. So, ice rolls during your sauna session can make sure you get all the positive effects of your sauna experience without the heat rashes!
At the beginning of a face massage.
A 15 minute face massage can have you feeling SO refreshed. You can see Lauryn’s routine HERE, and notice how she starts her massage with her ice roller to ditch inflammation!
If you want to take that face massage and make it a full face and body massage, go for it! The ice roller feels good and reduces inflammation anywhere. Go to the face, neck, and chest (don’t forget about those tits!), abdomen, legs, or anywhere else you have pain or inflammation.
Right before bed.
The ice roller is soo relaxing. Just take it to bed with you, girlfriend. Shut those screens off. Turn the lights down. Get under the covers. And, use your HOT MESS ICE ROLLER to wind down for the best fucking night’s sleep EVER.
