In need of a lift? By Belinda Morris
So far I think I’m doing ok on the ageing front – I’ve looked after my skin and in return it’s been reasonably kind to me. But while wrinkles and crows feet have – thus far – been kept at bay, my bugbear, the thing that gives my age away (anyone’s age away) is the jowl business. Oh why didn’t I know about that back in the day?!
Well I’m thinking about it now and here in my hand is a nifty little tool that I wish I’d had 10 year ago. Yes, it does look like a sweet little sex toy, but we’ll let that go… it isn’t. It’s Sensse’s Facial Contour Definer, a facial roller that describes itself as a ‘natural facelift’. Designed at a 70° angle, the two microcurved roller balls follow the contours of the face as you massage upwards from the chin to beneath the ears.
The workout boosts blood circulation, activates lymphatic drainage to detoxify the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. Sensse recommends that you use it for about five minutes a day and my diligence, after about three weeks, is actually paying off. There is a discernible tightening and lift along my jawline and the skin seems brighter and firmer. Hurrah!
And if you don’t give a fig about saggy jowls, you might like to know that this roller can also massage away stress and tension in your neck – being attached to phones and hunched over computer screens can cause ‘tech neck’. Rolling over from collarbone to chin will relieve the tension.
