Developing a good skincare routine is important for the health of your body, and it is important that you include your face in this. Faces take a battering in daily life, they are exposed to the elements all day, and we rarely cover them, which means the skin on your face is prone to giving away your age if you do not take care of it.
It is essential to develop a careful cleansing routine and remove makeup and the grime of the day every night before you go to bed, and of course, you can add in the most appropriate age and night creams for your complexion. Many people also underestimate the use of skincare devices for your face. Creams are good, but they only really tackle the surface layers of the skin. With sculpting tools, you are targeting the muscles of the face, which need to be worked out and taken care of if you want to stay looking younger for longer.
So, let’s take a look at how different face sculpting tools benefit your skin:
What are face sculpting tools?
EMS skincare devices
Until recently, EMS skincare was only offered in salons, but thanks to advances in technology, you can now purchase these devices for home use. A low current is used to stimulate the nerve endings of your face. This makes your muscle pulse, contract and relax on a regular interval pattern. It is similar to doing crunches for your abdominal muscles, and it helps tone up the muscles of the face and slow down the ageing look. You need to avoid any areas where you have spots or damage to the skin, but overall it is a safe treatment that will boost your facial skincare routine.
Facial rollers are usually made from precious stones such as rose quartz and jade. It is similar to a small rolling pin and can provide some excellent benefits to your skin. Using the roller to massage your face is known to improve the circulation of blood, and this, in turn, will help counter any puffiness, helping to reduce it. Experts advise that you keep your roller in the fridge as the cooling sensation is relaxing. Many users say that a facial massage with a roller makes them feel instantly lifted and rejuvenated. You should use your roller with a moisturiser or oil, as this will ensure it glides smoothly across your skin.
Manual facial massage/workouts
We know that exercise is key for keeping our body in tip-top shape, but often people overlook the fact that a facial workout can also help your skin stay young looking and supple for longer. Followers of facial exercise often call it face yoga, and it involves using exaggerated expressions and repeating movements to build your muscles. In order to see benefits, you need to be disciplined and stick to your daily exercise, but it seems that face workouts can help you defy ageing for longer. You can also massage your face to relieve tension, and this can easily become part of your skincare routine as you apply night cream or moisturiser.
