There’s something therapeutic about a deep cleanse and exfoliation. For starters, it’s good for your skin: Cleansing helps to remove makeup, oil, dirt, and everything else that makes its way into your pores throughout the course of the day. Depending on your cleanser of choice, it can also supply your skin with essential nutrients. Exfoliation, whether through chemical exfoliants like AHAs or physical exfoliants like cleansing brushes, helps to slough dead skin cells and increase cell turnover to reveal brighter, more even skin.
Best Ice Roller: Bloomeffects Black Tulip Cryotherapy Tools
We’ve talked about how much we love ice rollers. They feel great year round, after a particularly toasty workout, or if you’re feeling a bit puffy in the morning. (They also make excellent TMJ, or jaw pain, massagers.) These luxe cryotherapy wands are made out of recycled aluminum, so they’re naturally cool. While tools like these won’t make a long-lasting difference in your routine, they feel delightful, provide instant relief, and give you some more hands-on time with your skin.
Bonus points, per the experts: Our derms note that soothing tools like these wands are temporarily beneficial for lymphatic drainage and depuffing.
One tester said: “These little facial massagers feel very expensive. (And they are!) The packaging, presentation, and design are all on point. I loved using these tools on my face. You don’t even have to put them in the refrigerator/freezer, they are cool by default, and they feel really nice as massagers. I have a traditional face roller, and I like these worlds better.”
