Incorporating a face massage into your beauty routine is your best bet for firmer and brighter skin. And a face massage is all about face tools – the right ones can give you a perfect jawline, tighter skin, and a radiant look within minutes. Let’s not forget the self-care bit of it – face tools can also calm and soothe your skin and mind. Moving beyond the CTM routine, these face tools in India, specially Gua Shas and Jade Rollers, are now an essential part of your beauty kit.
From aiding lymphatic drainage and reducing tension to increasing your skin’s ability to soak up your skincare products and soothing your skin from the daily stresses, the benefits are aplenty. There’s no denying that it can be challenging to know what tools to invest in, considering the variety of options available in the market. So we have broken down the use of every product here.
The Jade Roller and Gua-Sha is an age-old technique of ancient Eastern medicine, used to cool skin, soothe overworked muscles, and shift energy blockages in the body. Even today, they help shift toxins and blockages, to make those long-lost cheekbones appear sharper than ever. With advancements in technology, there has been an introduction of gold-plated massagers to gold face masks that stimulate your skin. A tool with vibrational technology aids the absorption of all the active serums and creams.
Our verdict on the best face tools for a perfectly sculpted face —
If you’re looking for the perfect jawline, the gua-sha is your best friend. The wide length is used to smooth and de-puff, and the pronged end to sculpt a sharper jawline. While it might be a new tool for us, it has existed in ancient Eastern routines for centuries. Used in ‘skin scraping’ therapies, these direct energy, release blockages, and boost the lymphatic system.
