Gua Sha Facial Tool
What is it? I've been seeing these everywhere! After the jade roller hype, the Gua Sha slid in and snatched the spotlight. A Gua Sha is a ancient Chinese facial stone used to message and stimulate the face, perfect for at home spa nights!

We recommend using a serum or moisturizer to help the tool glide across your skin. For an in depth tutorial on the Gua Sha technique, check out Abigail James Gua Sha Tutorial on her Youtube Channel.

Ultrasonic Pore Extractor
What is it? This for my die-hard skincare junkies. An Ultrasonic Pore Extractor uses small vibrations and a metal spatula to gently extract blackheads, dirt, and oil.
What are the benefits? A Pore Extractor gives your skin a deeper clean, making the pores appear smaller. It also helps get the most out of your skincare products by infusing them into the pores. This process stimulates and increases circulation under the skins surface.
How do I use it? make sure to use up to 3 times a week on wet skin for best results. Turn to extract mode and use gentle yet firm pressure. Clean the spatula with soap or alcohol, switch to infuse, and repeat step one with your favorite serum.

What is it? Heres another one for my diehard skincare lovers. You've probably seen them on Instagram, lurking on your explore page. A microderm tool utilizes vacuum suction along with micro spinning discs to remove dead skin and support collagen growth.
What are the benefits? By removing the top layer of dead skin, this tool leaves your skin radiant, full, and soft. Your serums and moisturizers will also melt into your skin much easier. Plus, a microderm facial goes for around $100 a session. By investing in a personal microderm tool, you are saving yourself tons of cash in the long run.
How do I use it? Feel free to practice on your arm before using on clean, dry skin. Pull the skin tight and move in an upward direction, making sure to not pass over the same spot more than twice. This could cause unnecessary abrasion. When done, cleanse your face with a toner and wipe the disc down with soap or alcohol. Do not use in combination with a facial peel or more than once a week. Be patient and stick with it to see results!
