Sometimes, skincare alone is not enough. As effective as your favorite products can be, there are more ways to actually make them perform better and provide you with more benefits than originally intended. For example, tools like cleansing brushes and face rollers are popular because they amplify skincare by helping you achieve a deeper cleanse and depuffing your face, respectively. So if you're interested in an upgrade that'll make your skincare routine more interesting and effective, here are some beauty tools for different skin concerns to check out:
Best Skin Tools for Deep Cleansing
1. Foreo Luna Mini 2
This waterproof device cleanses off excess dirt and makeup and purifies the skin by means of gentle pulsations and light scrubbing with a non-abrasive silicone brush. It glides smoothly over the skin without overstretching and scratching the surface. With its touch points and eight intensity settings, you can easily customize your cleansing routine and reach areas that are typically hard to cleanse.

2. Clarisonic Mia 1 Sonic Facial Cleansing System
This travel-friendly, professional-quality skincare brush has a sonic frequency that deeply cleanses skin. It's said to cleanse six times better than your hands can, as it thoroughly clears pores and the skin's surface with its bristles. Having said that, it claims to have the power to remove 30 times more age-accelerating pollutants, which ordinary cleansing cannot do. This can be used as part of a daily skincare regimen for all skin types for clearer, smoother-looking skin.

This heart-shaped rose quartz crystal helps improve blood circulation and provides a light contouring effect.

2. Today's Skin Jade Roller
Jade rollers are one of the most popular face massage tools out there for helping tone facial muscles and stimulating lymphatic drainage by simply being rolled over the skin. This can reduce puffiness, smoothen fine lines, and calm unwanted inflammation. With gentle motions and light pressure, skin will look more lifted—be it on your face, décolletage, or other parts of your body.

This luxurious massager lifts, firms, and tightens skin with its unique wave-like pattern, streamlined body, and large solar panel. It generates micro-currents that are good for the skin because it stimulates skin’s collagen production and elasticity.
