9 Skincare Tools I Can’t Live Without
Skincare has never been more fun! Sure, we all want that perfect skin, but it’s nice that we can achieve that with products that are also relaxing, soothing and often provide aromatherapy benefits.
Another great aspect of 21st century skincare – we get to use all those amazing skincare tools that can even further enhance our skincare routines. Here are some of the beauty tools every skincare addict should have in their life.
Need to enhance the cleansing step of your skincare routine? Look no further! LUNA mini is a silicon cleansing device that gently exfoliates the skin and uses low-frequency pulsations to cleanse below the skin's surface, removing all traces of grime, sebum and makeup.
Tired of leaving a mess behind after cleansing? These stylish skincare scrunchies (aka Skinchies) are perfect for all us who enjoy taking care of our skin, but cleaning afterwards – not so much. Skinchies keep your bathroom counters clean and prevent water from dripping down your arms. You can also use them to remove your makeup or help your face wash pull out all the impurities from your skin.
You can find them everywhere lately, and for a good reason – jade rollers are perfect additional beauty tools that massage the face, improve blood flow, support lymphatic drainage, reduce puffiness and improve product absorption. You can also keep your jade roller in the freezer, for an extra cooling and de-puffing effect.
Taking your time with your skincare is a great thing in theory, but practically – it is a luxury not many of us can afford. For when you need to speed things up and help your products dry faster, the drying hand fan is the best way to go about it. You can also use it to cool the skin that flushes easily after all the rubbing and massaging. It is absolutely wonderful to keep on hand to help with that sweat that accompanies the use of your hot hair tools!
Have you ever applied a face mask and looked down at your fingers only to see the product trapped in your fingernail beds and all over your hands? The mask applicator reduces the mess and prevents the grime and bacteria from your hands/nails from coming in contact with the product you put on your skin – it can even help your products last longer. Because these practical little things distribute the product more evenly than your fingers ever could, you can apply less of your precious face mask and still achieve better results!The soft bristles also allow the product to penetrate deeper into your pores making the treatment more effective.
Although my boyfriend comes in at night and calls me Jason when I am wearing this…… It is my holy grail. It truly changed my skin, and if you don’t have one, get one! They are definitely an investment, but if used consistently over time will dramatically change your skin. This fancy tool is more than just the latest celebrity obsession. It is a great secondary treatment to help rejuvenate the skin, improve its texture, regulate sebum production, reduce acne, enhance natural glow and it even has an anti-inflammatory effect to the skin. My acne is almost gone, and I even see some of my fine lines starting to go away. I call this one….The Miracle Mask!
Dr. Dennis Gross seems to know what he is talking about in the skincare world. I may overdo it…..but every morning I have my hot lemon water, steam my face, and do a quick 10 minute facial afterwards. Yet another product that has dramatically changed my skin! Investing in a proper facial steamer is one of those things that can very directly and visibly up your beauty game. Steaming your face cleanses the pores, hydrates the skin, improves the absorption of the products and promotes clear, youthful, and glowing complexion.
I will be honest, I was very skeptical about shaving my beard. I remember my grandmother and even a few aunts (Won’t mention names) were genetically blessed with “sheards” (She Beards). My grandmother always told me to make sure to shave her beard and mustache if there came a time that she could not do it herself. This handy little tool not only gets rid of the excess whiskers, sheards, and peach fuzz, but it also exfoliates your skin. Regular skin exfoliation can give you the softest, smoothest skin ever, plus it encourages the skin to renew itself. Dermaflash is an easy to use exfoliating tool that removes all the dead skin cells and peach fuzz and reveals fresh, healthy, youthful skin underneath. So I must mustache you a question…..but I’ll shave it for later!
Dr. Pimple Popper has become a thing in my family. My Dad actually brought a pimple popping game to our Christmas gift exchange last year. I know-disturbing, but oddly satisfying. I also remember him standing in the mirror pushing “worms” as he called them out of his face. I wonder why I love a tool that takes care of all of your blackheads! As every dermatologist says…..don’t pick at your skin! With Dermapore, it is a safe way to extract the gunk for your skin. This is another great 2 in 1 beauty tool to have in your arsenal. In its Extract Mode, it thoroughly cleanses your pores, while its Infuse Mode improves the absorption of your serum or moisturizer. The result – less visible pores, more even complexion and healthier, cleaner, better nourished skin! It is also oddly satisfying to watch what comes out of your skin!
With all these amazing tools at your disposal, skin imperfections don’t stand a chance! Each and every one of them would be a perfect addition to your little home spa sanctuary. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do and that they will help ease your way to perfect skin.
