Facial Beauty Tool Must-Haves
A plethora of facial beauty tools can enhance the results of your favorite skincare
regimen. Whether it’s masking redness, unclogging pores beauty tools, or stimulating skin cells to
produce collagen, the right tool can make all the difference when you’re trying to
get smooth, even-looking complexions. To help you select the best facial tools for
your needs, we spoke with a few of our top-tier skin editors and celebrity
estheticians (like Riverdale star Madeline Petsch and Byrdie editor Joanna Czech) to
find out their must-haves.
Whether you’re in the market for a face sculpting device to contour cheekbones or
an eyelash extender to get your lashes looking fuller, these devices are must-have
add-ons to any routine. We also included a few extra beauty tools that’ll help you
remove unwanted hair and exfoliate your skin without nicking or cutting yourself,
like this facial hair removal tool that uses sonic vibrations to safely slough away
dead skin cells and excess hair.
To keep your complexion bright, soft, and youthful-looking, you need to slough away
dead skin cells. This facial brush does just that, with a rotating head that has both a
coarse and fine brush attachment to help remove dirt, grime, and debris. It’s gentle
enough to use on sensitive areas, too.
A pore vacuum is one of the most effective at-home tools for scrubbing away
blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities that might be stuck in your pores. It
may take a little time to get the hang of using it, but once you do, you’ll be left with
a squeaky clean complexion that’s free from gunk and blemishes.
If you’re looking for a quick way to brighten your complexion, this LED light therapy
treatment works in just three minutes daily. You simply apply the device to problem
areas like crow’s feet or fine lines around the mouth, hold it there for three minutes,
and move on to another area. As the lights work to energize skin cells, you’ll notice
firmer, more radiant-looking complexions over time.
Mimic the hands of your favorite celeb esthetician at home with these sculpting and
toning devices. This jawline and cheekbone-sculpting tool from Sundree (which won
a 2021 Cosmo Beauty Award) uses a vibrating bar and a set of dual rollers to boost
blood flow, relax tense muscles, and de-puff and lift your visage. Alternatively, you
can go more traditional with Vogue Verified-friendly NuFace’s pronged microcurrent
massager (a fave of Vogue editors and Madeline Petsch) to stimulate your muscles
and firm skin.
Keep in mind, however, that you’ll only see results if you’re consistent with any
facial tools you add to your routine. Also, always be sure to read the instructions and
best practices for each product before using it. Overuse or improper use can lead to
irritation and damage the outer layer of your complexion. So, for the safest and most
effective results, always follow the directions and only use a facial tool on healthy
skin. Otherwise, you may be wasting your money and time.
