Most of us are still cautious about getting facials because it's impossible to be physically distant from your aesthetician. The pandemic surely has us a bit paranoid for our own safety, which we think is actually a good thing. As much as possible, it's better to stay at home to keep yourself and others from getting exposed to COVID-19. It's normal to still want to face pampered, and lucky for us, there are now devices and products we can use as a substitute for facial treatments.
To help you navigate the world of facial devices, we created a list of skincare gadgets worth trying. Of course, nothing beats in-clinic procedures, but given the sitch, it's always better to stay at home.
From LED masks (which you've been seeing everywhere) to at-home facial kits, keep scrolling to see your future DIY glow-boosting fixes.
1. Jade Roller
Feel super Zen when you massage your face with a jade roller. This helps relax the facial muscles and reduce puffiness and swelling. For best results, apply a facial oil on your skin or put on a face mask first. On each cheek and the jawline, roll the device sideways, going outwards. Then, using upward motions on the forehead.
