Mirrorlights: essential beauty tools


By Ria Bhatia

Popularized by many beauty gurus across the globe, these are the newest beauty tools that have earned a place in everyone’s vanity: Gua Sha stones, jade rolls, ice globes and other reconcile deletion towels.

Gua sha may have caught your eye by now, but has been a part of Chinese beauty culture since ancient times. It is a technique to stimulate lymphatic drainage and stimulate blood circulation in the skin to maximize skin health. Derived from the Chinese word which means scratching, gua sha refers to massaging the skin by applying pressure to relieve tension. Gua sha is ideal for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, fighting morning puffiness and de-stressing the skin at night. It also promotes better absorption of serums, creams and oils into the skin.

Another gem in Chinese beauty culture is jade scrolls. They are great for massaging your skin for glowing, radiant, firmer, and tighter skin. One of its best benefits is that it incredibly stimulates the penetration of skin care products, allowing your skin to get the most out of it. Made from semi-precious jade stones, these rollers tone facial muscles to control the appearance of fine lines and dull complexion.

And the ice globes will fit perfectly into our K-beauty inspired routines. The cool movement of this tool on your face helps reduce puffiness, reduce the appearance of pores, reduce inflammation, promote blood circulation, and lift the face.

If you use all of these but still use cottons to remove makeup, we’ve got news for you: beauty has moved on. Bring home a makeup remover towel because it is also effective and more environmentally friendly.
