We all want to look our best and the holiday season is the perfect time to try new products. I recommend 5 advanced facial tools for great skin.
Are you looking to up your skincare game on your terms? As an expert in skincare, one of teh best things you can do is get facials regularly. At least seasonally. There are a couple of tools you can use between facials that will boost your skincare game to the next-next level. Check them out below.
Before I tell you what I recommend let me mention what I do not. I don’t recommend spending the money on facial cleansing brushes. I have nothing against cleansing brushes if you have the money to invest in a good one, but a washcloth works JUST as well and gives you the same results.
On the flip side, the tools listed below ARE worth teh money because they are high-tech devices with proven spa-level results.
The wand brightens and rejuvenates your complexion. Regular use reduces pigmentation appearance, helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, neutralizes free radicals, and promotes collagen production with the Vitamin C serum, vital for great skin.
The Ionic Wand is simple to use. You apply the Vitamin C serum, switch the device on, and gently glide over the skin for beautiful results.
Instead of picking or poking at your skin with your fingers, use this tool in a hands-free way to unclog your pores and infuse nutrient-rich serums and moisturizers.
In Extract Mode, this tool cleans out your pores by removing dirt, oil, and blackheads. After you’ve removed the gunk and switched to Infuse Mode, the tool aids the absorption of the active ingredients in your favorite skincare products. This tool enhances the effectiveness of your products, which means more bang for your buck.
The NuFace tool targets fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead with micro-current technology.
Micro-current technology is all the rave in the skincare industry right now. Along with helping smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, you can use it to promote fuller-looking lips without injections and at home. It is a fabulous multi-use tool to have in your skincare arsenal.
Have you ever wanted to look like a supermodel who just walked off the runway? Yeah, me too, and although that gig might not be in our near future, we can still act the part with diminished puffiness and more enhanced-looking features using this compact contouring tool.
The Refa Caxa M1 is the most convenient to use because it’s portable, and you can use it at any time of day. The four small rollers on the device replicate the friction and kneading methods used by estheticians to help reduce puffiness and facial distortion for a sharper-looking appearance.
It is a more efficient version of the old cheek-pinching tactic used by women in the 1800s. To give their skin a more lively appearance and add more color to their complexion, they would pinch their cheeks. The Refa Caxa M1 is much more effective and specially designed, but the purpose is similar— to increase facial contour and blood circulation.
This new LED red/blue light mask is excellent to use at home for people suffering from rosacea and acne.
It is best to use this mask at least 2 to 3 times a week for the most effective results. The red light is for redness, and the blue light is for acne.
The red light is proven to lower redness and inflammation in the skin by sending signals through the skin for a healing effect, and the blue light aids in acne-fighting and prevention by wiping out acne bacteria in the pores. I use this powerful tool in my studio, and I always recommend it to my clients for home use.
Now that you’ve got your history lesson and skincare terminology in for the day, I hope I’ve helped you pinpoint which advanced skincare tool(s) best fit your skin’s needs. Stay gorgeous, babes!
