I’d rather talk about skin tools more than anything. You know how much I love my facial manipulation & the tools really come in handy when you wanna tighten & contour the face.
Some of you have been DMing about my favorite standouts & I wanted to talk about 3 that I’m loving right now.
This video was one of the most fun for me to film because it’s completely in my comfort zone. I’m perpetually puffy & I know my shit when it comes to tools. I’ve tried everything under the sun & these are 3 that you need on your vanity immediately.
Beauty Tools You Really Shouldn’t Live Without
♡ Clarisonic Uplift
The Clarisonic is my favorite & totally worth the investment if you ask me. I like to apply a little oil & move it around in circles. I take the massage down my neck & sometimes down to my chest to really get the circulation going. We’re all about the lymph system over here. It totally depuffs & contours.
A facial massager helps by stimulating circulation to drain excess liquid out of your system. It also helps in the prevention of fine lines and new wrinkle formation, while at the same time helping in tightening the skin and making it nice and elastic again
♡ Hot Shave Razor
I’ve been shaving my face since 2014 & no, it doesn’t grow back darker. Why shave? It exfoliates your face which increases cell turnover. This creates younger looking skin & prevents signs of aging. Don’t believe me? Well I have this little theory. After noticing that men seem to age more gracefully in their faces I was wondering why. They shave for most of their lives. This keeps their skin fresh. Also Kate Somerville shaves her face. Yes the queen of skincare recommends shaving your face. Doing it at home is easy with Tinkles.
Shaving one’s face was discovered in Japan and is widely used by Asians. Aside from removing facial hair, it can remove excess makeup after washing your race. Shaving your face also exfoliates the skin leaving a matte finish that is nice and dewy which allows makeup to lay nicely on your face.
♡ Gua sha tools
Gua sha tools usually come in jade & rose quartz. I like rose quartz because Cleopatra used soak in a bath with rose quartz. Obviously I’m gonna copy Cleopatra. When doing this at home, the key is to always work from the inside of the face then go outwards. And ALWAYS scrape UP, never down. Don’t ever pull your face down. This is so important, I can’t say it enough.
Make sure you use an oil with your gua sha tools, too.
Gua Sha is a type of massage technique to relieve skin muscles from tension and encourage lymphatic drainage and also to contour your face. Ancient Chinese practice scraping to drain lymphatic drainage. Use oil to make your skin super soft, prevent acne, and even skin tone. Avoid applying too much pressure if you have sensitive skin.
