Ah, a face massage. There is nothing like it. Not only does it feel super relaxing but it also tones your skin and brightens your complexion. From encouraging blood circulation to aiding lymphatic drainage (puffy eyes, we’re looking at you!), there are so many face massage machines available that allow the muscles in your face to relax. Plus, these face massage tools have a slew of benefits.
While most of us may not have the time or funds to book ourselves professional face massages two or three times a week, these face massage tools are the next best bet to glowing skin. More and more brands are coming out with their own versions of these beauty tools—from gua sha stones to vibrating high tech options—you’re spoilt for choice. All you need is some face oil, some patience and practice and you’re set.
Here are some of the best face massage machines, rollers and other tools that you can use to get that relaxing facial massage at home. Have a look!
If you struggle with puffiness in the morning, pop your jade face massage tool on the fridge before you head for your shower in the morning. Post that and before doing your skincare routine, take this double-sided jade massage roller and give your face a quick massage. The longer side is intended to be used on your cheekbones and neck and the smaller side, for the delicate eye area.
This interesting face massage tool is Ayurveda-approved. It is created using wood and kansa metal that is designed to balance your doshas, chakras and skin's pH level. It is suitable for head and face use and is said to have a number of beauty benefits. It plumps the skin, softens fine lines, de-puff eyes, firms the jawline and cheekbones and tones facial muscles.
The cute pink colour will cause you to be obsessed but wait, there’s so much more this tool is good for, other than its aesthetic purpose. This handheld face massage tool reigns in the power of cold to de-puff your face, zap inflammation and redness, stimulate blood circulation and oxygenate the skin. Keep the ice face massage roller in the fridge at all times.
This gilded electric face massage tool vibrates 6000 times a minute to not only firm up your facial muscles but also reduce the wrinkles around the eyes. It promotes lymphatic circulation and smoothens the skin. To prevent tugging, make sure skin is well-prepped with facial oil so the tool glides on easily.
This face massager tool is a dupe of the ReFa Carat and for a mere 1/40th of the price, so it is safe to say that we are not complaining! The twin ball face massager tool scoops, lifts and pinches your skin, stimulating the muscle underneath. The result? Increased circulation that gives your skin a glow! Before using this tool, make sure your face is well oiled, lest you’ll end up damaging the skin.
Wondering why everyone and their mothers are raving about rose quartz crystals and gua sha? Well, the former is believed to open up the heart chakra which is essential for self-love whereas the latter has been used in ancient Chinese medicine for years. Gua sha stones are used to scrape and sculpt skin, boosting blood circulation. More blood circulation = softest skin ever!
This silicone eye massaging tool gets into the nooks and crannies of your face, reducing the appearance of under-eye puffiness, eye bags, dark circles, crow’s feet, and fine lines and wrinkles. To prevent it from tugging at your delicate skin, make sure you use a facial oil.
Yes, all of these face massage rollers and tools can be used daily. The trick lies in practicing how to use them correctly.
Use your regular face oil. For oily skin, try using lightweight options like jojoba or grapeseed oils. Dry skin types will love almond oil whereas acne-prone skin will thrive if you use non-comedogenic options like rosehip oil.
With face massage tools, it all depends on the extent of damage your skin has been exposed to. Deeper damage to skin takes longer to heal but in some cases, you may see an immediate result. However, it may be temporary. With consistent use, you’ll see a difference anywhere from a single use to month.
