PSA: ‘Face Fitness’ is set to be one of the biggest beauty trends to hit 2020 and we want in!
This year, face rollers — be it jade rollers or gua sha — are set to be all the rage and it’s no thanks to the growing demand for facial tools that address our skin concerns. Oh and don’t get us started about the tragedy of us waking up to puffy faces in the morning — we know it’s probably because we’re too caught up on those pitchers of beer, or that sinful dinner — but it was worth all the calories, shh.
Whatever it is, with a slew of new tools to experiment with in achieving firm and radiant skin, ahead we’ve listed out the different types of facial tools to rid any facial puffiness.
A practice done in many Asian countries, especially in the ancient times in China, Jade Facial Rollers have been known to promote blood circulation, reduce puffiness and improve absorption of serums into the skin.
But why jade? Well, metaphysically, besides its unique attributes to the skin, jade has been known to be a gemstone that brings peace and harmony while reducing stress — which might explain why it’s a piece of jewellery that’s been commonly sought after by many, especially with the older generation!
Though it may seem dubious to some, many have sworn by the jade roller which has helped achieve a firmer complexion by easing muscle tension and supporting the lymphatic system.
Derived from traditional East Asian medicine, the gua sha has been incorporated in many routines to improve circulation of the blood and address issues such as chronic pain.
Otherwise known as a more affordable facial treatment option, the Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool is most commonly used by scraping your skin in a downward motion or outward from the centre of your body, with a few strokes to promote blood circulation and increase blood flow. On top of that, the technique has also been believed to relieve pain and tension in the body!
Though the thought of scraping your skin may seem a little grotesque, the gua sha technique actually does help in addressing the “chi” in your body — which may contribute to inflammation and are highly associated to chronic pain.
But it doesn’t end there, in fact, gua sha also helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves the face feeling lifted and radiant with each use!
MICRO-CURRENT FACIAL ROLLERS
Would you invest in a Face Massager worth $280? Well, if you’re willing to go that extra mile and you don’t mind spending that extra buck, then this Carat Face Massager by REFA might interest you. With a ton of shapes and sizes to choose from, this Face Roller brings cutting-edge technology to the ever-so-ubiquitous facial roller.
Delivering low-level electrical currents into your skin, this innovative roller addresses saggy skin concerns, stimulates elasticity and collagen production, tightens and gives your skin that beautiful radiant glow. Plus, the REFA Carat Face Massager also comes with a solar panel on its handle, so you won’t have to ever worry about charging the device itself.
So is it worth the splurge? Well, if you’re looking to invest in a facial device that does actually help in sculpting your face on the daily, then this one is worth a go.
Admit it — you’re no stranger to FOREO’s coveted devices. But if you are, where have you been?!
A force to be reckoned with, the FOREO device has been one of the top few favourites we’ve seen ourselves going back to every now and then (and for good reason). On days when you wake up looking like a pufferfish, these FOREO devices are sure to be one that we’d reach out for when we’re in need of a quick facial massage to de-puff and drain away the tension and fluid in your face.
Ergonomically designed with curved ridges at the back, the FOREO LUNA 3 also has an anti-wrinkle mode (similar to the LUNA 2) that delivers 4 different customised facial firming massage routines to address any areas of concern. Take, for instance, the LUNA 3 device which comes with T-sonic pulsations that work its way into wrinkle-prone areas — massaging and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which eventually results in skin looking firmer and more elastic!
Aside from that, the device has also been known to give your face a nice lift while sculpting your muscles. What more could we ask for?
