I think a lot of people forget about one of the most important self-care rituals– skin care. It’s easy to forget about when we have to do so many other things when we wake and before we go to bed. We brush our teeth, take long showers, drink way too much coffee, but what about the largest organ on our body. I mean, come on. Get it together and keep scrolling. I know you want to step up your skin-care game.
I know that Dr. Pimple Popper is definitely going to come for me once I tell you guys about this actual lifesaver. Every time there is a severe weather change, my skin freaks out. Like it hasn’t been on the same Earth for 27 years. Either I had a ton of dead skin build up or pesky blackheads that were impossible to get rid of. Did you notice how I used everything in the past tense? This skin scrubber spatula uses ultrasonic vibration to deep clean and extract dirt and oil. And it has four modes that depend on what exactly you’re trying to achieve with your skin. Deep cleaning, extraction, helping with absorption of your skin products, and even tightening and brightening. That sounds like a load of bull, I know, and I was just like you, skeptical. But I saw this product while I was thinking about the next thing I could waste my money on and I threw this into my Amazon cart. I used this one time and now it is as essential as my moisturizer. Come on, we all know your skin can use a deep clean.
I am straight upbringing the spa to you with this product without you spending over $100 to have a facial that uses some wild method like having slugs climb up and down your face. I’m sure that’s a thing. I mean, would you really be that surprised? Let’s keep the slugs away from your face and try this– the NanoSteamer Facial Steamer. So, I don’t know if you know this but steam is one of the best things you can do for your face. The heat and moisturizer opens up your pores, so it is easier for you to actually clean your face. And I mean DEEP clean. Not that lazy attempt of cleaning your face after you went out with your friends and you want to feel like you’re somewhat responsible. This steamer is the perfect size and it comes with three different modes, depending on what it is used for. It also has 5 separate tools for all types of facial extractions. Dermatologists cry your heart out.
So, we have all seen those viral Tik Toks where girls use a pore vacuum on their poor, unknowing boyfriends. And let’s be honest, we are all intrigued by them and genuinely want to know if they work. As a certified product reviewer (note to my boss- Am I allowed to call myself that?) I’m here to tell you that it does work. It can be a little intimidating at first because you’re essentially putting a high-powered vacuum on your face, but it will have your skin feeling brand new. Similar to the skin scrubber, this will pull out all the oil and dirt you have built, but it gets all of that gross stuff from under the skin, rather than the top of it. It has different suction settings and detachable heads for optimum use. Don’t leave it on your skin for too long or it may cause something that looks similar to a hickey unless you’re into that sort of thing.
Do you remember when those beauty rollers were all the rage? They were made out of different types of stones and it was close to manual labor when you roll it all over your face. This one is like the 2.0 version of those things. Instead of being made out of one type of stone, this radiance roller is embedded with 30 geranium stones so it helps with circulation and tightening. There is a certain mapping when it comes to using this roller that will give you a lymphatic drain which is critical in maintaining that youthful glow. And we’re all looking a little aged after going through way too many historical events the past year.
I was one of those people that got this magical little guy in my Fab Fit Fun box and I wasn’t that excited about it, if I’m being honest. I thought, “Why would I ever use this?” And, man, was I wrong. The first time I used it my skin felt like it had been reborn. Which sounds cheesy, right? Let’s talk about it. The PDM Silicone Brush uses thousands of vibrations a minute to completely exfoliate your skin. It beats out all of the build up and remains completely hypoallergenic because of the silicone bristles. And it lifts your skin. You get to feel clean and youthful? Count me in. Just like most of the products I have listed, it will give you the deepest clean of your life and your skin will thank you for it. I don’t know why I keep having to emphasize that I want you to feel beautiful, but I’ll keep saying it. You need to hear it more often.
Leaving your products spread out across your bathroom counter is so college. And having room temperature facial products? Ugh, the worst. I’m embarrassed even typing it out.
Mini fridges are not just used in college dorms anymore, they are a perfect place to put your favorite moisturizers, sprays, and face masks. It keeps all of your products fresh and lasts longer. Bonus: it also acts as a warmer. So, you can put a wet washcloth in it and place it on your face so you feel like you are at the spa. But more importantly, you will love the way it feels to put cool moisturizer on your face after using that amazing facial steamer. I am trying to convince you to bundle up on products? I sure am. Is it working?
It’s officially time to come clean, but I’m only doing so because it’s the end of the article and if you’ve made it this far you deserve to know the truth. I have gotten a facial or two. Sometimes we need other people to be the ones practicing self-care for us. The esthetician who did my facial told me about compressed sponges. They look like little potato chips until you get them wet and they expand. They are exfoliating and remove your makeup way easier than that old rag you use. But the best thing about them, in my opinion, is how clean I feel after I use them. I too fell victim to the old rag beside my sink, but my eyes were opened once I used these. You’ll feel like you’re a full on adult, when we both know that’s never the case.
