I am a newbie roller with only a couple of rolling sessions with my 0.25 behind me.
Something happened after my last roll two nights ago, this morning I woke up and my forehead is full of ugly red pimples! I feel like a teenager again!
I wonder if I am doing something wrong, since I am really new to this. Like I said, I am using a 0.25 roller. I think I have rolled 4 or 5 times now, and this has never happened before. Its a bit strange that the pimples have appeared on my forehead only, because I rolled the entire face. I do see some odd pimples on my cheek and above my upper lip, but that is nothing compared to my forehead.
This is my rolling routine, which I do in the evening before I go to bed, every other day or every third day:
Before rolling I wash my face with a face cleanser and warm water and let it air dry. After that I roll the entire face except eyelids and under the eye. My face gets a bit red and looks like it had a bit too much sun. Immediately after rolling I soak the roller for ten minutes in a cup filled with warm water and a bit of dishwashing liquid. After that I put it back to its case to wait for the next roll. I also apply a bit of vitamin A cream to the areas on my face where the lines are (Afirm 0.15% retinol), and a bit of night cream which is quite thick (Eucerin hyaluron filler night cream).
Usually when I wake up the following morning the redness has mostly subsided. Except for the last time. I saw some pimples starting to form yesterday evening, but was hoping it would get better today...nope!
I am not disinfecting the roller, should I start doing that? Could this be some sort of reaction to the dishwashing liquid I am using to clean the roller?
What can I do to the pimples to make them go away? Right now I am wearing a scarf on my forehead and plan to stay indoors until I look a bit better.
