There are also studies that suggest that massaging your face with a facial roller can improve your mood.
How often should you use at-home skincare tools?

Many dermatologists and skin care experts recommend that you start with 2-3 times per week until you familiarize yourself with the techniques and get more comfortable with using them. For other skincare tools, it’s best to follow the instructions on the device or seek out the recommendation of your healthcare provider.

A skincare tool can be the perfect complement to your skincare regimen. It can also help turn that everyday routine into a soul-nurturing ritual to truly care for your whole self- body, mind, and spirit.
Do facial tools really work?
Facial tools like facial rollers and gua sha tools have been shown to improve your skin. Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy where you gently scrape your skin to improve circulation, help relieve tension in the face, reduce puffiness, and help with inflammation. Best results are attained by using the tool on a regular basis.
What are the different types of skin care tools and devices?
There are various types of skin care tools and devices. Some of the most common are facial rollers and gua sha tools. Both are usually made of semi-precious stones like jade, quartz, or obsidian. They have a cool, smooth surface that helps you massage your skincare into your face. A facial roller has a long handle and a spinning massage head on one or both ends that you roll across your face. A gua sha is a flat tool that is used to gently scrape and massage the skin. To use it, you hold onto the tool and using the various edges, you apply gentle, even strokes against your skin.
