Hi everyone I’m Jessica from BeautyKare and this article is about skin
tools I’ve been talking a lot about all different skin care routines this month
and how to find one that fits my skin type so today I’m going to tell you about
some more advanced tools you can use to take care of your skin in a new way.
If you are just starting out experimenting with skin care tools one of the
easiest ways to start is with something like a muslin cloth, and you might
think this just is a regular washcloth but it’s not.
It’s actually something that you can use to exfoliate your skin and it’s perfect
for people with sensitive skin so if you want something that’s going to get rid
of dead skin and dry skin but gentle enough to use every single day morning and
night this is perfect all you do to use it, is: – Apply a cleanser
– then get this damp in warm water
– Open it up
– and massage your skin in circular motions
– then rinse off and you’re going to be left with really nice moisturized
skin without irritating it at all.
The next tool is about one step up from a muslin cloth this is a micro
derma mitt so this is like getting a microdermabrasion treatment at home instead
of going to the dermatologist, you can use this to get a deep exfoliation and really
turn over some fresh skin cells, you’re going to get rid of all the flakiness
on your skin and it’s going to break up the oil in your skin as well.
So, this is perfect for someone with oily skin who really wants a deep “deep”
exfoliation a couple times a week, if you have a more sensitive skin you can
still use this but maybe stick to once a week.
Next up is an all-natural skincare tool, this is from one loved Organics,
it’s their cleansing sponge and it’s a cute little heart, this is a konjac
sponge which is a natural sponge and it’s also a big trend in Korean skincare.
This one in particular is made with bamboo charcoal, and it’s really useful
so, a sponge like this looks hard and it’s going to harden up every time when
it’s dry, but when you soak it in water it’s going to expand and get really
soft and sort of have a rubbery texture which feels really cool when you’re
So, you use this to massage cleanser into your skin, it’s going to give you
a deeper clean, then you can just get with your fingers, and the charcoal in
there is going to really help it pull out impurity. It’s also really great for people
who have acne or oily skin, and want to get a nice deep clean.
If you are interested in diving into electronic skin care tools, the most well-known and popular is probably the Clarisonic, this is made with their patented sonic technology.
It’s going to vibrate 300
times a second, so you know a cleansing, it’s actually cleansing six
times more than you can just do with your hands alone.
This is great for someone who wants to get a really deep clean, it comes
with these lovely soft brush heads, and they also make different kinds of brush
heads so you can buy ones that are great for acne, that are great for sensitive
skin, and switch these out you want to replace them once every three months or
This is super easy, this is the Mia one, so there is one setting one speed
it turns off after one minute.
So, there’s really no guesswork here you know that you are getting a deep
clean, and you are not over irritating your skin.
One of the newer tools on the skincare market is the foreo luna, and the foreo luna mini. These are made with silicone, they have got a really soft silicone nubs on there, that feel great as they are massaging your skin like the Clarisonic.
These are super easy to use all you do is push the ON button you can set to
lower frequency or higher frequency pulses, it’s going to pulse once every time
you need to move to a new section of your face and then it pulses three times
when you’re done cleansing and you can move on to your next step.
One of the reasons the luna is so unique is that it actually comes with this
anti-aging panel on the back, so after you’re done cleansing massaging this
over your skin you hit the lower frequency button, and you can use the anti-aging
part on those wrinkle prone areas, it stimulates collagen and prevents wrinkles
I think that’s such a unique thing, something that we are all looking for as
we get a little bit older.
Last but not least is something a little bit different, this is bliss’s fabulous pout-o-matic.
It’s their spa powered lip perfecting system, and this is really cool
because especially in the winter, I always have really dry chapped lips.
So, it comes with the bliss fabulous lip scrub, which has hobo oil in their Shea, and cocoa butters, and a bunch of vitamins.
Smells amazing you put this on your lips and then you turn this ON. It’s
got little massagers in there, that are going to spin around, massage your lips
for a few seconds and it’s going to get rid of all that flakey skin.
Those are just some of my
favorite skincare tools, if you’ve got your basic routine down pat and you want
to upgrade it a little, I definitely think adding a skincare tool into the mix
can help your skin feel a little bit better.
I cannot wait to hear what you
guys think let me know in the comments if you’re going to try any of these, if
you have any questions about my experiences with them. and I will see you soon.
