I had no idea how much stress we hold in various places of our bodies (other than the oft-cited shoulders) until a dentist pointed out that my jaw at the joint was very tense. I don’t grind my teeth at night or have TMJ, so that was surprising to hear. He advised me to massage the area daily—great; I’ll add that to the ever-growing list of sh*t I need to do to keep my body from falling apart. Unfortunately, massaging my jaw region with just my hands only helped slightly. Fast forward to last month when I was gifted a Clinical Skin Pétrissage Massage Beauty Roller, and everything changed. I always thought that face rollers only benefited the skin, helping it look taut and more defined, but it turns out I was wrong.
The beauty roller came in a little velvet bag, not unlike a different kind of massager I recently bought. Undeterred, I noted the facial massager had a substantial feel to it, so I gave it a whirl. It’s meant to be used on dry or slightly damp skin, though for areas like around the eye, damp is gentler. The two-pressure-point system sculpts under the jawline or cheekbone much better than a single roller.
