What is Germanium and the benefits of Germanium on the skin?

Germanium is a chemical element with the symbol Ge and atomic number 32. It is a lustrous, hard-brittle, greyish-white metalloid in the carbon group, chemically similar to its group neighbour’s silicon and tin.

There have been claims that germanium may be beneficial for health, including improving the immune system, oxygen supply in the body, and destroying free radicals. Germanium has also been considered to be beneficial in treating allergies, asthma, arthritis, HIV/AIDS and various forms of cancer. However, as yet there is little scientific evidence to really support these claims.

What are the skin care benefits of Germanium?

Living an urban lifestyle exposes our bodies to harmful positive ions. These are generated from mobile phones, computers, electronic and electrical equipment, chemicals, acid rain and ultraviolet rays.

To secrete such waste from the body, and in turn gain nutrients from the blood, our metabolism is an extremely important process. With more negative ions in the body, the body’s metabolic process is increased in efficiency.

Conversely, with more positive ions in the body, our metabolism becomes less efficient and slower. Thus, the human cells become weak and the body is more susceptible to sickness and the ageing process becomes accelerated. This can be further explained by the reduced oxygen carrying capacity of the blood cells.

Germanium has a negative-charge ion which can therefore be considered to help in blood purification and balancing the positive and negative ions within the body. This also achieves muscle relieving effects as well as reducing fatigue and tiredness.

The MZ Skin Tone & Lift Germanium Contouring Facial Roller

This device is driven by innovation, utilising forward-thinking technology for skin that is revived, toned, and uplifted with overall improved facial contour and lymphatic drainage.

Made with germanium, a key ingredient in activating and balancing the positive and negative ions responsible for ageing. It simultaneously defends the skin from surrounding environmental aggressors from urban living.

Similarly to beauty tools such as Gua Sha, its added acupressure pods apply light pressure to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities, and lymphatic drainage, resulting in skin that is less puffy, more even toned and definitively radiant.

How to use the MZ Skin Tone & Lift Germanium Contouring Facial Roller

Gently roll the massager over the desired area, in upward directions, following the natural contours of the face. Continue for 30-60 seconds. Use the end of the roller to focus on acupressure points around the eye contours too.

It can be used over facial serums or oils to help with the penetration of active ingredients or used on its own over cleansed skin.

Once finished, rinse under hot water perhaps with some baby shampoo and pat dry ready for your next use.

Contraindications of the MZ Skin Tone & Lift Germanium Contouring Facial Roller?

Avoid using on the middle of the throat, over injured or irritated skin or with active skin conditions like psoriasis. Discontinue using if you find yourself sensitive to germanium.

Do not use if you have a pacemaker, electronic metal allergies, cancer, epilepsy, seizures or are pregnant.
