It is time to include a new step in your gym routine: working out your face! It may seem trivial but over the past few months, we have witnessed the launch of new beauty tools meant to make your facial skin firmer. From jade rollers to futuristic facial massaging tools, what are those tools? What do they really do?

Jade/Quartz rollers

Jade stones were used for skin treatments many centuries ago by the Chinese. Fast forward to today, we now notice the resurgence of the more commonly found jade or rose quartz facial rollers. For many, it is touted as fitness for the skin with the many benefits it brings;

  • Improve the skin’s elasticity.
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Reduce puffiness.
  • Tighten the pores due to the coolness of the roller when it touches your skin.
  • Increase blood circulation (oxygen from the increased circulation helps to remove toxins and calms inflammation).

Gua Sha

Used in traditional practices by East Asians, Gua Sha has been found in many routines meant to improve blood circulation and help in issues such as chronic pain. The Gua Sha tool uses a scraping motion on your skin in a downward or outward from the center of your face.  The tool has been know to have benefits such as:

  • Help with the “chi” in your body, that may contribute to inflammation.
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Firm up the skin.
  • Give the skin radiance with increased usage.

Microcurrent Facial Devices

These devices uses Electrotherapy for anti-aging, toning and firming of the skin. It emits low-level electrical currents in form of pulses and vibrations to stimulate the muscles in the face. This form of electrotherapy has many benefits such as:

  • Help with saggy skin.
  • Improve the skin’s elasticity.
  • Tighten the skin.
  • Stimulate collagen production.
