As we continue to perfect the art of at-home pampering by transforming our bathrooms into mini spas and investing in new tools and skincare products to maintain a healthy glow, it’s time to bring the beloved facial massage home. An innovative skincare solution, face massagers are essentially a handheld masseuse at your service to relieve tensions around the face and down to the décolleté. Similar to gua sha, a skincare tool deemed the at-home beauty ritual for a firmer more sculpted face, face massagers do much more than alleviate stress in the face. They also work to enhance circulation to help drain toxins, reduce puffiness, tighten and brighten the skin, and, most importantly, promote product penetration to deliver optimal nutrients to the skin for a fresh, glowing complexion.

From microcurrent devices and 24-karat gold-infused vibrating bars to precious stone energy healers, there are a plethora of facial massagers to indulge in to achieve your ultimate skin goals. And if anything, they provide a deep relaxation our skin craves after a long day. To perfect our at-home technique, we turned to Lisa Guidi, skincare guru, celebrity esthetician and owner of New York’s Erase Spa, to get the insider’s guide into how exactly to use these skin-transforming gadgets.

“The main technique to keep in mind when using facial massagers is always to be massaging against gravity,” says Guidi. “So you want to constantly be lifting the skin in a soft upwards motion when massaging any areas of the face. Facial massagers can be used as desired at any time of day, but they should be the last step in your skincare regimen. For maximum benefits and absorption, massage after applying all serums, face creams, and oils.”
