7 Skincare Tools You Can’t Live Without

The beauty industry is oversaturated with products that insist they can treat every known skincare concern under the sun. For that reason alone, it can be hard to figure out which beauty products are actually worth investing your hard-earned money in. And when you factor in the amount of research it takes to find the products that really work for your skin (and its needs), the pressure of putting together a routine seems pretty daunting. That’s why we’ve put together a list of the best skincare tools that will actually deliver on their promises. 

Full disclosure: Beauty tools aren’t cheap. They’re splurge items that aren’t necessities in your routine, but believe me when I tell you that they make a huge difference. There are tools for all kinds of skin types and concerns, addressing everything from sculpted cheekbones to collagen production, from topical product efficacy to peach fuzz, from hyperpigmentation treatment to simple relaxation. Skincare tools really can do it all. And a friendly reminder, you certainly don’t need all of these tools. If you’re just starting out, choose one that treats your skincare needs and goals (and most importantly, your budget!).

Below, take a look at a few of my favorite skincare tools that I believe are worth the money and therefore, worth trying out—your skin will thank you!

The Things We Do Dew & Go Microneedling Infusion Stamp

Price: $225.00

What and Why

This produce gently punctures the skin while simultaneously depositing a serum rich in snail mucin and moringa to help increase cell turnover and collagen production. We love it because it makes our skin look and feel bouncy and dewy! Also, the micropunctures are painless and the results will leave you wanting more. After this treatment, the next morning, our skin looks ultra-fresh and supple, and continue to see the plumping effects throughout the month before the next usage.

The Tool: Gua Sha

Skin Gym Black Obsidian Sculpty Tool

Price: $38.00

What and Why

An ancient Chinese practice that has been passed along for many centuries. Gua sha uses a stone to help release built-up fluid from the lymphatic system in your face and next to relieve tension. There are a lot of different Gua sha stones out there so finding the one that truly works best for your needs.

ZIIP Nano Current Device

Price: $495.00

What and Why

Microcurrent is a treatment that delivers very minimal waves of electric current to help train your facial muscles to be tighter and more lifted. These treatments are perfect whenever your face will be front and center. The ZIIP device feels super bougie but I always see immediate results right after I use it. It pairs with an app so you never have to question if you’re “doing it right” and you finish the treatment with lifted, sculpted skin that looks red-carpet-ready. I like that this tool really feels as luxurious as the price tag reflects and that the app with guided treatments makes it easy to set up a regimen for yourself.

Aceology Ice Globe Facial Massager

Price: $198.00

What and Why

Stick these globes in your skincare fridge so the liquid inside the globes cools down. The cold glass and liquid help depuff any areas of your face that are feeling a little swollen. I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a pretty emotional girl and I cry a lot. For me to invest in a product that helps counteract the swollen puffiness of a night of crying, these globes are really amazing and worth my money. I use these immediately after crying and also the morning after to even further reduce the puffiness. It also works for eczema because the cooling effect helps reduce the itchiness and sensitivity.

Foreo Luna Mini 2

Price: $119.00

What and Why

This small silicone disc gently vibrates to help loosen impurities while you cleanse your skin. It works your cleanser deeper into your pores and simultaneously exfoliates your skin to leave it feeling extremely clean and smooth. One singular charge lasts for months, if not more than a year, and the vibration level is adjustable so you can customize your cleanse. It really works my cleanser into my skin, so it’s especially useful after wearing a full face of makeup.

Vanity Planet Aira Ionic Steamer

Price: $47.99

What and Why

It releases a micro-fine steam to help open your pores and prep your skin for extractions and the following products. It’s perfect for elevating your at-home facial setup. Not only is this steamer super chic on your vanity, but it also releases the finest misty steam I’ve ever seen in an at-home steamer. It doesn’t get so hot that it feels harsh on the skin, but it’s warm enough to gently open my pores and loosen any impurities that need to be extracted.

Dermaflash Luxe Anti-Aging Exfoliating Device

Price: $199.00

What and Why

Dermaplaning removes the peach fuzz and top layer of dead skin cells from your face and neck. It’s one of my favorite treatments to indulge in whenever I’m able to get an in-office facial, and this is as close as I can get at home. It leaves a smooth surface to help my skincare absorb more easily and my makeup to lay more evenly. While I can sometimes replace this tool with a stainless steel razor, I find that the motorized power of the Dermaflash makes my skin even smoother.
