Happy Sunday, babes! Since I’m ALL about self-care I wanted to take the time to share my 6 favorite skin tools I use weekly! All of these items are WORTH the investment and time. I carve out at least two times a week (about 30 min) for some skincare and ME time. I highly recommend it! The 6 tools have really stepped up my at-home skin routine. I basically have a spa in my bathroom now! 🙂
Below I have detailed each and why I love them SO much. Leave a comment with any questions you have.
 Kitsch Ice Roller – I’m a big fan of rolling/massaging my face. For one, it feels great! It also de-puffs the face (my favorite benefit), helps with lymphatic drainage and reduces redness from breakouts. I typically do this 3-4 times a week. I store it in my freezer, grab it in the morning when I’m making my coffee and roll out my face.
 Wholesome Body Brush – If you don’t dry brush, you should! It’s the best thing I started doing for my body a few years ago. My skin used to get extremely dry and itchy (regardless of pregnancy) and now, NO more! The benefits of dry brushing are: stimulate the lymphatic system, exfoliate the skin (my favorite), helping rid the body of toxins, increasing circulation and helping breakdown cellulite. YAS please! I dry brush when I get out of the shower. My body is clean and I literally brush my skin from my feet toward my heart in an upward motion. I don’t use any product hence “dry” brush. It feels a bit intense at first but trust me, you will begin to like it! I do it about 3-4 times a week. See what works for you!
 Vanity Planet Facial Steamer – If ya’ll have been watching my Instagram stories you’ve seen me use this steam machine and the below wand. I’ve really stepped up my at home spa game with these product. I like to steam before I use the microdermabrasion wand and/or apply a face mask. It really help product get deeper into the skin, which allows for better results! I highly recommend this!
 Vanity Planet Microdermabrasion Wand – I love the fact I have my own personal wand to give myself the treatment AT HOME! It’s a lot less expensive than going to the spa!! Microdermabrasion is essentially a deep exfoliation. Again, sign me up! Anything to blast off my face! LOL The wand suctions away dead skin cells that clog your pores, leading to inflammation, spots, blackheads and acne breakouts. It also stimulates the skin promoting circulation, accelerating skin tissues development and collagen production. I use this wand once a week.
 DERMAFLASH Dermaplaning Exfoliating Device – I just started to do this myself at home and it’s SO easy. if you don’t know what dermaplaning is, it is essentially shaving your face. Ha! I don’t have a ton of hair however it’s really nice to have smooth skin. My products penetrate deeper and my makeup lays better. The hair on my face does NOT grow back darker, more full or prickly. Don’t worry ladies! 😉
 Mount Lai Gua Sha – The Gua Sha tool is new to me thanks to my girl, Mel (@thebeautynurse). I started using mine 6 months ago. It’s similar to the roller as it feels great! The benefits of Gua Sha are: tension relief, detoxifying, natural face life and glowing skin. I apply my Mara face oil before I use the tool. I highly suggest watching Mel’s Instagram highlight on how to do it.

The painter and I decided on a very dark color to almost match the exterior.
