If you haven’t noticed by now, facial massage tools have made their way into almost every beauty lover’s medicine cabinet. Is this simply the byproduct of a beauty trend, or are there real benefits to facial massaging? Facial massage tools help with lymphatic drainage, a process that allows the body to move stagnant lymphatic fluids away from the skin. These tools are proven to decrease puffiness, increase circulation, even out fine lines and wrinkles, and relieve muscle tension. Here are some of our favorite tools to sculpt the face to a tension-free glowing state of perfection.
The Kansa Wand is no innovation in beauty; in fact, it has been a key component of Ayurvedic practices for close to five-thousand years. This tool contains a copper and tin metal alloy, which promotes lymphatic drainage, balances the skin’s pH, and flushes toxins out of the body. We love using this tool to massage the temples during tension headaches.
If you are looking for a tool to relieve muscle tension while simultaneously improving skin firmness, consider this roller. It hugs the contours of the face for a deep knead and improves circulation in the skin. We love Skin Gym so much that we’re adding their tools to our carefully curated list of products available at our locations in the upcoming weeks.
Most people are familiar with jade rollers. Now, let us introduce the jade roller’s partner in crime: the gua sha tool. This is a flat piece of stone that works by scraping stagnant lymphatic fluids away from the face. This tool is great for smoothing any muscle kinks around the brows and jaw.
