Derma rollers are a wonderful tool for skin care. They create small micro-tears on the surface of the skin, allowing active ingredients and moisture to penetrate more effectively than normal. When cleaning your derma roller, you need to make sure that it is sanitary and clean, so as not to risk any adverse side effects from using it on your skin. If you don’t clean your derma roller correctly after every use, there is a chance that bacteria and other nasty things can grow on it. This means that there are risks involved with not properly sanitizing your derma roller after every use. To avoid damaging side effects due to the uncleanliness of your derma roller, follow these steps to clean it correctly.
How To Clean Derma Roller With Sanitizer?
- Take the derma roller and soak it in rubbing alcohol. Use a small bowl, and fill it with enough rubbing alcohol to cover the entire roller. Let the derma roller soak for one hour. After an hour, pull the derma roller out of the rubbing alcohol, and wipe off all excess liquid with a clean towel.
- Take a new cotton ball, and soak it in isopropyl alcohol (also known as IPA or isopropanol). This will be used to sanitize your derma roller after cleaning it with rubbing alcohol. If you don’t have isopropyl alcohol, you can use vinegar instead, but this isn’t as effective of an antiseptic as IPA is. If you use vinegar to sanitize your derma roller, make sure that you wash it off with water after sanitizing it in vinegar to avoid skin irritation.
- Place your derma roller back into your small bowl again and cover it with isopropyl alcohol (or vinegar if using that instead). Let the derma roller sit in this solution for five minutes while you do something else around your house or take care of other things that need attention.
- After five minutes have passed take out your derma roller from the bowl, and wipe off any excess liquid on the surface of the device with a clean towel again (just like we did before). You can even use this time to give yourself a quick scrub, and use a gentle cleanser to help remove any dead skin cells on your derma roller.
- Now that your derma roller is clean again, let it sit in the alcohol solution for one more hour before using it on your skin. Make sure that you don’t use your derma roller right after cleaning it in alcohol because this can lead to bacterial growth if you don’t let the alcohol sit on the device for a while before using it again.
- After one hour has passed, take out your derma roller from the bowl of alcohol, and wipe off any excess liquid with a clean towel. Let it dry completely before using it on your skin again.
How To Properly Sanitize Your Derma Roller?
- Wash your hands with soap and water.
- Use a clean, soft, and dry microfiber cloth to wipe the derma roller.
- In a small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide with 1 teaspoon of rubbing alcohol.
- Add 2-3 drops of this mixture to the bowl containing your sanitizer, and mix it well so that the solution is evenly distributed on the roller’s surface.
- Using a cotton swab, wipe off all traces of the solution from the derma roller onto another clean swab or piece of cotton cloth (make sure it is clean). If you are using a derma roller that was previously used by someone else for skin care, this step is especially important! If there are any traces of uncleanliness left on your derma roller after this step, do not use it on your skin! Even if you wash your hands thoroughly again before using it on your skin again, bacteria may still be present on its surface. This will lead to infection and adverse side effects such as rashes or allergies in your skin if used on sensitive areas like facial skin or underarms! Do not risk this!
- Use a new sanitizing solution every time you use your derma roller because bacteria can grow quickly over time if not properly cleaned and disinfected after every use! Always make sure to wash your hands before using it again after each use too!
How To Clean Your Derma Roller With Alcohol?
- First, you need to remove the derma roller from the case.
- You will need to wash the derma roller with soap and water. Make sure that you clean it completely so that there aren’t any traces of bacteria left on it. You can use a brush or an old toothbrush for this purpose.
- Once you are done cleaning, you need to thoroughly dry your derma roller using a lint-free towel or cloth. This is important because if you don’t dry it properly, there is a possibility that bacteria will grow on your skin after using it on your face, which would be very bad for your health!
- After drying the derma roller, you will need to use alcohol to sanitize it again before using it again. Alcohol is very effective in preventing bacteria from growing on the skin due to uncleanliness and makes sure that no matter how many times your derma roller is used, there are no traces of bacteria left behind for them to grow upon later! 3% alcohol is just fine for this purpose as well and does not cause any side effects on the skin at all! Just fill a spray bottle with 3% alcohol and spray some of it onto your derma roller before using it again! It should be enough for one use! If not, repeat steps 2-4 until the alcohol dries completely off of your derma roller!
How To Clean Your Derma Roller With Bleach?
- First, you will have to find a container that is large enough for your derma roller. You can use a plastic food storage container or any other container that is large enough to fit into.
- Next, you will have to fill the new container with some bleach solution. You should not add too much bleach because it will leave an unpleasant taste on your skin and also make it hard for your roller to glide over the skin.
- After adding the bleach solution, you will have to cover the container with a lid and let it sit for at least an hour before using it again. After doing this step, your derma roller should be clean and ready for use again.
- Now, you will have to apply the derma roller to your skin and leave it for about 10-15 minutes. If you are using a very large roller, you may need to leave it there for longer. If you are using a smaller roller, you should only leave it on your skin for a minute at most.
- After removing the derma roller, rinse off any residue that was left behind with some water. Now that your derma roller is clean and sanitized again, use it on your skin every day if possible to help improve its effectiveness.
Cleaning your derma roller is an important part of skincare. If you don’t clean your derma roller properly, there is a chance that bacteria or other nastiness will grow on it. This can lead to adverse side effects, as well as a dirty roller that will not work as well. Luckily, cleaning your derma roller is not hard to do. There are a few different ways that you can clean it, but alcohol and bleach are the most effective. Make sure that you clean your derma roller after every use to make sure that you don’t get any bad stuff growing on it.
