Wrinkles, baggy eyes and sagging jowls — what if we told you that there is a way to counter these unwanted features from the comfort of your couch? Face massaging tools that require little to no expertise to use are seeing a resurgence in popularity, from rose quartz rollers to face-lifting devices.
For busy urbanites like us, these handy tools are real timesavers in our increasingly stressful lifestyles. You can use them from your couch or bed as you catch up on the latest K-drama, or even while you make your morning coffee. The bonus is that most of these are not electrically powered, saving you the hassle of having to charge them.
How do face massagers give you younger-looking skin?
In a nutshell, these face tools and devices help stimulate better circulation which aids in skin rejuvenation, leading to glowing, more youthful-looking skin. Many of them are also made from minerals or gemstones such as jade and rose quartz, which are said to have mood-boosting effects because they help balance your body’s energies.
How should you use it?
Whether or not you have to use the massagers with skincare products such as serum, moisturiser or face oil depends on the tool, but a general rule of thumb is that if you find that the tool is tugging too hard at your skin, it’s best to reduce the friction with a cream or lotion.
But apply your skincare to your face – not the massager – to ensure even distribution of the product.
Care tips for your face massager
Since you’re going to use these on your face, always remember to wipe them down with a clean cloth (either dry or damp, it doesn’t matter) to remove any traces of skincare products and sebum. You can also dip the devices into warm, soapy water before rinsing and wiping it dry with a clean cloth. If there are moving parts, make sure to place your face massager in a well-ventilated area to air dry it properly.
