Taking care of the skin went beyond self-care and became a true hobby, that useful and enjoyable pastime that we allocate a little time in our routine to dedicate to our bodies and unwind. With skincare moments becoming successful – especially now that we spend more time indoors – beauty gadgets also came into focus, which are tools to improve or facilitate skincare.

We know that there are many launches and news in the world of skin care, which is why we can get a little confused from time to time. LED masks that promise office-worthy hydration, a mini fridge made specifically to store your skincare products and even a blackhead remover gadget are just some of the high-tech tools that everyone loves.

But the unanswered question is: do these accessories really make any difference in the health and appearance of our skin? Let’s check this article and see the details of each skin care tools and what they are for!

LED Mask

Kourtney Kardashian, Victoria Beckham and Chrissy Teigen are fans. For those who don't really know the functionality but are dying to use this armor on their face, the LED causes small production of free radicals, stimulating the production of antioxidants. In addition, it stimulates the mitochondria to produce energy , which favors the formation of new collagen fibers and the production of hyaluronic acid.

In a nutshell: it helps with the skin's renewal process and texture. It is worth remembering that each color influences the treatment differently. The LED mask with blue light has a bactericidal effect and helps with oiliness, the red one has an anti-inflammatory and healing effect, the yellow one helps in the production of collagen and elastin and so on.

But attention: always consult your dermatologist before going out and buying one, ok? Even because their price is not sooo affordable, ranging from $100 to $1000.

Silicone brush

Does it really make a difference to clean your face with a silicone brush versus a traditional sponge? Yes. The difference is due to the fact that this gadget works by pulsating its silicone filaments. Result: the skin ends up having a much deeper and non-abrasive cleaning. Not to mention that she is much more prepared to absorb her skincare products.

Because it is made of silicone, the device is super hygienic and does not create fungus, lasting much longer than a conventional brush. It's worth researching well at the time of purchase. Choose products that have proven quality, avoiding investing in devices that have just the same appearance, but without performance.

Among some brands is the Snowyskin Ultrasonic Facial Cleanser, its model gives the skin a gentle but deep exfoliation, which expertly removes 99.5% of dirt and oil from the skin while providing a pro prep for enhanced absorption of your favorite skincare.

Roller and Gua Sha

Still in the category of facial massagers, Rollers and Gua Sha - jade and quartz being the best known - gained the status of indispensable accessories. These tools have many benefits: stimulation of blood circulation, which helps to minimize fine lines, increased oxygenation and nutrition for the skin, promotion of lymphatic drainage, reduction of swelling and relief of muscle tension . The (light) pressure of the device also facilitates the absorption of cosmetics by the skin. And if you are looking for minimizing fine lines, you can also choose the Face Sculpt Kit, it addresses the appearance of sagging skin, lines and skin dimpling by improving blood circulation and skin care product absorption rate.

You can use them every other day, as the first thing in your routine. And even use them cold, weighing around your eyes until the temperature drops and then start the facial massage. Facial massage brings a super well-being and helps a lot to know and love each other!

The best combination of the tool is with your moisturizer. Avoid massaging the skin using the roller or gua sha combined with photo protectors and acids, as they can cause irritation and hypersensitivity or dermatitis. They can be used twice a day, for 5 to 10 minutes right after cleaning the skin.

Beauty Fridge

Trending on Instagram, the beauty fridge is getting popular with everyone. But is it really worth the investment? This is the type of tool that is only advantageous for skincare devotees who are extremely disciplined with their routines. Keeping products refrigerated makes sense because the cold helps to better preserve certain formulations and ingredients. Among the products most suitable for cooling are thermal water (since when applied at a cold temperature, it promotes an immediate vasoconstriction process with anti-inflammatory action from the cold), acids are substances that are more sensitive to dissociation due to heat) and eye area cream.
Even the rollers and Gua Sha can be stored in the fridge, promoting a massage with vasodilator effects.

Blackhead Remover Device

I'm sure you've watched a video of an influencer using this suction device. But let's take it easy on the emotion! These products are actually sold as deep cleaning gadgets, but only promote the superficial removal of blackheads. We cannot compare its use with cleaning done in the office, through steaming followed by mechanical extraction.

They are only used to remove blackheads on the surface as they do not have the capacity to remove the more petrified peroxidized oil that is in the depth of the pore. Strengthening that the handling done with great force and the excessive use of these gadgets can cause damage to the skin and the feared rebound effect, it is when the removal of the fatty layer can be interpreted by the skin as an aggression, consequently generating more fat.

Because of this, it is not the best fit to promote deep sanitization, but an emergency cleaning technique.
