Face Sculpting Tools

These days, face sculpting tools have become a must-have ingredient of a modern skincare regime. From the simple Gua Sha tools made of rose quartz or jade, to the more hi-tech electronic facial massaging devices – the range of facial sculpting products is vast and growing daily. 

The more advanced tech gadgets are obviously modern additions to a 21st-century beauty regime or skincare routine, yet some of the most popular and effective tools date back centuries to the beauty habits of the ancient worlds. 

The Gua Sha, for example, is a simple tool made of a piece of precious stone (such as jade, quartz or obsidian) that’s shaped to perform certain massage and sweeping actions over the skin on the face and neck. 

This beauty product may be enjoying a current wave of popularity in modern beauty trends, but it actually dates back over a thousand years to the beauticians of Ancient China. Similar facial massage tools have also been a part of the Ayurvedic practices that originated in Ancient India. 

EMS skincare devices 

One of the most exciting crossovers of technology and beauty in recent years is the development of anti-ageing devices and skin-boosting gadgets. One popular example of this type of beauty product is a firming EMS facelift mask

If you’re new to these kinds of beauty gadgets, EMS stands for Electrical Muscle Stimulation. (Mothers will be familiar with this type of technology for reducing labour pains, it’s also been popular for a number of years for slimming and toning the waistline.) 

This effective EMS technology has now entered the world of facial skincare and a mask that harnesses the power of electrical muscle stimulation can lead to some amazing results in terms of skin tone, facial contours and overall rejuvenation of the skin. 

Among the celebrity advocates of these types of firming masks, users claim to enjoy results such as glowing skin, improved jawlines and an uplifted appearance overall. 

Face Rollers

Face rollers work on a similar principle to face sculpting tools, and in fact the combined use of sculpting and rolling can be a fabulous beauty combo. 

Many facial rollers work on a similar principle to the muscle rollers you may be familiar with from the gym or the world of athletics. It’s the idea that rolling – i.e. applying pressure in a certain way – can be beneficial for the muscles beneath the skin. 

With face rollers, however, the beauty benefits go beyond the muscular effects. Facial rolling as part of a regular routine can also benefit the surface of the skin as well as improve blood circulation – seemingly smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, with continued use over time. This is because the rolling action, when done to support facial contours and rejuvenation can lead to some wonderful anti-ageing benefits. 

Manual Facial Massage/Workouts

Along with all the tools and gadgets that are available in the modern beauty market, there are some age-old and time-tested techniques that don’t require anything other than your own fair hands. 

Manually massaging the skin on your face can create impressive results, when it’s done with an awareness of the muscles and skin properties, as well as the flows of blood and lymph beneath the surface of the skin. 

Regular practice of facial massage can be highly beneficial in terms of rejuvenation and improving skin tone. If you combine your massage techniques with some of the latest facial workouts, you’re likely to see some inspiring results relatively quickly. 

There may be a bit of a learning curve in knowing how to massage your face correctly, but once you know what you’re doing, it’s a technique you can use for life, anytime, anywhere – and it’s free! 

And if you want to take this practice to the next level, there are also ways to incorporate certain serums and masks that will elevate the skincare benefits even further. 

Thanks to the latest innovations and the most ancient traditions, there’s no doubt that we are spoiled for choice when it comes to the tools and products that can help us elevate our facial skincare regime. 

Whether you get excited about the latest tech beauty gadgets, or you prefer the time-tested techniques from centuries past, the right tools and products for you will be the ones that you can incorporate into your beauty regime on a regular basis, as well as the ones that inspire you to carve out some beautifying and beneficial doses of Me-Time.
