I don’t know about you but I’ve been noticing a major influx of facial tools on the market lately, and I’m all about it! With this busy working mommy schedule, I’m not able to get to my monthly facials like I used to during my modeling days. I’m lucky if I can schedule an appointment once every 3 months or so. So, I’ve really been loving the idea of all these new at-home use facial tools coming on the market. It’s easier for me to schedule in a little self-care from home than getting to my facialist.
So, let’s delve into some that I really like or look promising:
My facialist is renowned Georgia Louise . Her healing hands have touched the faces of women such as Jennifer Aniston and Linda Evangelista. She’s a pro! I don’t get in to see her as often as I should, so I’m trying my best to still take care of my face on my own.
One of my favorite tools, which I happen to keep by my bedside, is Georgia’s own Lift and sculpt butterfly stone . This rose quartz stone has many healing and anti-ageing benefits. Georgia says, “It should be used daily as part of your face massage routine – night time is great and mornings.” She adds that, “it’s great for puffiness, as it drains away toxins and helps to relax tight muscles due to the deep massage, which in turn helps to give the appearance of a contoured face. Rose quartz, the stone of love also has anti-aging vibrations inside, which was loved by Cleopatra.”
Here’s how to use it: Start massaging from the forehead, work half of the face at a time, working down the face to “drain”.Then work from inwards away to the sides for the face. Each section of the face should be massaged 10-20 times, including the forehead, cheeks, under eyes, jowls and jaw. Make sure you drain inwards towards the nose when working under the eyes.
I love it because it is literally the easiest tool to use. It doesn’t need batteries or to be recharged, you just pick it up and start using it at anytime of the day.
