As part of The Beauty Project currently happening at Selfridges, the store has introduced a new facial concept in the form of FaceGym, a concept I just can’t get enough of. Using a combination of acupuncture and facial massage this stimulates your muscles and gives them a thorough working out from warm up through to cool down and promises results in 30 minutes. So that’s great when you want to let someone else do the job but you might also want to look at creating your own Face Gym at home. Here are some of the best tools around to turn your bathroom into workout mecca for your face from the weird to the wonderful:
Facewaver Excercise Mask
Said to banish any wrinkles, sagging & generally give your face a good workout with only five minutes a day. Put it on whilst you’re making your morning coffee. Miracles could happen.
Ying Yu Rollers
Working with the natural healing properties of jade from ancient Chinese remedies, a few minutes a day with one of these rollers can stimulate blood flow and reduce toxins for glowing skin
Micro Needle Dermal Roller
Not as scary as it looks, these tiny little needles help stimulate collagen product in the skin. works well for anyone with pigmentation or scarring issues.
Looking not too unlike a small, hi-tech cattle prod, this hand held device releases micro currents into your skin which stimulate the skin to help lift & tone.
Used the world over the Clarisonic is a favourite with many providing gentle exfoliation for your skin and a good old deep clean
Allows you to go hands free, stick it on and let the machine do the work whilst you check some emails, get a cup of tea, feed the cat etc etc…
Akaishi Facial Massager
As relaxing as it looks, rollers at four different points gently massage your face to lift and tone for ten minutes a day.
If your mouth is looking a little sad pop this in for a daily workout to lift and tone the muscles. Also makes for hilarious Instagram posts.
