Written by Tashika TyagiJul 25, 2021

Long gone are the days when face tools were reserved for the experts. With the power of the internet and Youtube tutorials, we have come a long way, especially when it comes to beauty tools for skincare. While we are all too familiar with these tools, we are still struggling to keep up with their benefits and advantages.

As your beauty BFFs, we will help you pick the right beauty tool depending on your skin concern. Excited? Read on…

Gua sha for facelifts

One of the most followed traditional Chinese healing and relaxing therapies that took the internet by storm — gua sha has fast become skincare essential in our vanities. Gua sha literally means ‘to scrape sand’ and is a great way to contour your face and tighten your skin to give it a natural facelift. Besides that, it also improves blood flow to your face and gets rid of excess fluid, puffiness and dark circles around your eyes.

Jade rollers to de-puff your face

Chances are, even if you don’t know much about facial tools, you definitely must have seen jade rollers all over your social media feeds! And trust us, this skincare tool deserves all the love and praises that it has been garnering. Jade rollers are facial massage tools with jade stones that soothe and smooth your skin and aid in lymphatic drainage to reduce the puffiness on your face. Just apply a few drops of your favourite serum or moisturiser and roll the jade roller in an upward motion on your face and neck and see it work its magic.

Dermaplaning for removing acne scars

Dermaplaning is a skincare treatment that you can now do at home, all thanks to scalpel-like face razors available in the market. The technique basically requires you to gently get rid of the surface layer of your skin with a razor. This helps get rid of facial hair that traps dirt and impurities and helps minimise the appearance of large pores and evens out skin texture. And since the layer of dirt and dead skin is removed from your face, your skincare products will also penetrate better. Win-win!

Silicone scrubs to exfoliate sensitive skin

It’s important to exfoliate your skin to get rid of all the dead skin cells, but it becomes tricky when you have sensitive skin. Scrubbing your sensitive skin sounds daunting, but not when you have a silicone face exfoliator brush at hand. Unlike the grainy and harsh exfoliators, silicone is actually gentle on your skin, making sure that you don’t over-exfoliate or dry out your sensitive skin; instead, work gently to deep clean your skin, leaving it smooth and clear.

Derma rollers to treat fine lines and uneven skin tone

A roller with tiny needles sounds scary, right? Not really. Derma rollers are actually pretty good for your skin and come with multiple benefits. The tiny needles are harmless on your skin, and when you roll them on your face, it leads to creating small punctures on it. Sounds frightening, but it isn't. It triggers your skin’s wound healing response, which stimulates collagen production on your face and helps treat fine lines and uneven skin tone, making your skin look smooth and radiant.
