ESSENTIAL 5 SKINCARE TOOLS EVERY GIRL SHOULD OWN
JADE ROLLER & GUA SHA SET
The jade roller and gua sha are miracle portable devices that you can carry anywhere and serve the same purpose. Both these tools promote lymphatic drainage and effectively de-puff the face. The jade roller is a less technical tool whereas the gua sha requires a skilled approach.
You should use the jade roller on clean skin. For extra coolness you can store it in the fridge before use. You want to make sure you are draining down the neck and towards the lymph nodes. It should feel cooling and relaxing on the face.
The gua sha is used in Chinese medicine. It is a means of promoting circulation and redirecting energy flow in the body. It can help promote healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate the lymphatic system. The daily ritual of Gua Sha can provide a multitude of long term skin benefits. Gua sha use can reduce wrinkles, firm and tone, even out complexion, define the jaw line, de-puff and combat pigmentation and puffy eyes. Gua sha can also be used to relieve tension and relax the muscles.
Since dermaplaning got viral, these little razors have proven to be life savers for every girl on this planet. From tackling unruly peach fuzz to bushy eyebrows and upper lips, dermaplaners work like a charm. Apart from removing unwanted hair, demrplaners also help in exfoliation by removing dead skin cells.
Note: Before opting to shave your face, it is wise to consult your Dermatologist if you have acne, scarring or anything other skin conditions. There is a proper procedure that needs to be followed, which involves skin care before and after dermaplaning.
ELECTRIC DEEP FACIAL CLEANSER & MASSAGER
The small facial and massage battery operated device is the ultimate tool and caters to multiple skin concerns. This silicone made tool not only removes and unclogs pores on your skin through deep cleansing, it also gently massages your face. Very easy to clean, portable and super effective if used right.
Experts say that if you sleep in the same position or side repeatedly, this can cause fine lines and wrinkles on your face? *shocker, I know!*
The problem with a cotton pillow case is that it absorbs all the moisture from your face, including the products you put on, whereas a silk pillow case is non-absorbent. Moreover it not only feels soft on your skin, you have less hair breakage as well. Therapeutic and anti-aging – wow!
HOME WAXING KIT
Sounds frightening but I assure you that if you do it right, home-waxing has its perks. The days of waxing strips are over since this product and their formulas have advanced. I personally opt for fruit wax which than organic wax. And its always recommended to do a patch test before using any product to check for sensitivity and allergies.
