During the Summer months I tend to have dryer skin. Now, that might be opposite of how you feel about your skin. I know a lot of people say their skin is dryer during winter months. My family spends a lot of time outdoors especially in the Summer and the sun really tends to make my skin pretty dry. That is why I have made some really great products with natural ingredients that hydrate my skin and help keep it soft. I love my DIY face roller to massage in moisture and I wanted to share the recipe today. This homemade roller is super easy to make leaves your skin refreshed and glowing!
Homemade Face Moisturizer Roller Tutorial
Whatever your skin type, you’ll love this roll on moisturizer because it leaves your skin soft and glowing. I chose pomegranate oil as the best facial moisturizer carrier oil for its many benefits. According to the School of Natural Skincare, “Pomegranate oil is a wonderful addition to your natural skincare products. It is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols that give the oil natural protection qualities, shielding skin from UV and free-radical damage. It supports cell regeneration.”
Kunzea might be a new oil for you! It’s amazing. It is an oil from Australia and has similar properties to Tea Tree. It’s wonderful for helping keep skin clear and fresh. I think it works better and it smells lighter than Tea Tree.
Geranium oil has been used for centuries to promote radiant skin. According to Dr. Axe, ” [Geranium Oil] has the power to minimize the look of wrinkles because it tightens facial skin and slows down the effects of aging.”
Palmarosa essential oil is also highly regarded for it benefits to skin. Accrording to Idea Hacks, “the oil’s cytophylactic nature means that it encourages cell regeneration and growth of new tissue beneath the skin. This helps in healing scars and dark spots while repairing the effects of aging.”
I store my homemade moisturizer facial oil in a face roller bottle so that it’s very easy to apply and carry along in my purse. The roller bottle is also beneficial for stimulating circulation and keeping your skin refreshed. The DIY face roller increases blood flow through massage and that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. As you use the face roller to gently massage, you will be increasing circulation and hydration all at the same time.

How To Make A Moisturizing Face Roller At Home:
Start by gathering the supplies for your DIY facial moisturizer and head to the kitchen counter.
Grab your roller bottle and essential oils (I only use Young Living because I believe they are the highest quality essential oils on the market). Add 8 drops of each essential oil: Geranium, Palmarosa and Kunzea.
Once you have added your essential oils, top off your roller with your pomegranate carrier oil. Pop the roller top on and you are ready to use!
Many popular facial rollers are made of stone like a jade roller or a rose quartz roller and they promise the additional benefits of the particular used. Jade in particular is thought to be good for removing toxins. There are others like the Derma Roller which looks a bit scary with its tiny needles on roller for home microneedling. What I love about using the stainless steel roller ball bottle is that it works to help the face moisturizer recipe sink deep into the skin. Rolling also decreases skin puffiness by speeding up the lymphatic drainage process. According to Girl Boss, “When it comes to wrinkles the facial roller, when used vigorously, can stimulate collagen production.” This gentle massage for your facial muscles helps your skin to look and feel its best!
How To Use DIY Facial Moisturizer Roller:
Use gentle pressure on your DIY face massage roller to roll a light layer all over the face. To help improve your skin’s blood circulation your roll upward and outward from your chin along the jawline. Use care when applying to your eye area, not to get too close to your eyes themselves. Roll from the center of your forehead to the toward the scalp in outward motions. Then just gently tap into skin with your fingertips.
This facial massager can be used to help promote even skin tone. The all natural recipe can be used as a stand alone light moisturizer or under your regular moisturizer. It’s easy to travel with so just toss it in your purse or bag when heading out the door! This DIY face moisturizer roller even works great on stretch marks to hydrate and smooth the skin. I hope you enjoy this natural face moisturizer DIY!
