Additional reporting by Andrea Saadan
From jade rollers to gua sha tools, there are countless of facial devices in the market that promise, healthier, and luminous skin. But which ones work best and are worth the extra effort? We've rounded up seven of the best facial tools that you should start incorporating in your skincare regimen to help you achieve that coveted glow.
1/7 LG Pra.L Derma LED Mask
Part of the highly raved LG Pra.L range, the Derma LED Mask utilises 160 infrared and red LED lights to rejuvenate your skin in just nine minutes. Red light therapy is also known for its anti-ageing properties—permeating into the subdermal skin layer, it helps to stimulate collagen production, as well as improve blood circulation and healing. The mask, which is designed with a silicone eye-shield and sensing detector to protect your eyes from the red light, is recommended to be used twice a week for visible results.

2/7 Jade roller
A Chinese skincare tool and a cult beauty favourite, the jade roller, shows no sign of waning with it being the most popular facial tool in the market. It helps calm swelling and redness and improves blood circulation. It also leaves the skin feeling cool, relaxed, and radiant. Our favourite is Mount Lai's de-puffing jade roller—store it in the fridge after each use so to help improve the roller's cooling effect. The extra cool surface will further even out skin texture, tighten skin and boost your overall glow.
