Experimenting with new products can be one of the most exciting things about skin care. However, for those with sensitive, acne-prone or reactive skin trying the latest trend can come with a bit of a leap.
If you are looking for a way to add some excitement to your skincare routine with an everlasting product, try these facial tools.
Facial tools are the perfect way to add a new step to your routine while expanding the effects of your already beloved skincare products. Each tool is made with a targeted result and skin type in mind. Here is everything you need to know:
Province Apothecary Dual-Action Jade Facial Roller
Made for sensitive, mature, inflamed and reactive skin.
This double edged jade roller delivers double the benefits to support both sensitive and mature skin. Providing lymphatic drainage through gentle massage no matter your skin type, this jade roller allows for you to both sculpt and sooth your skin all in one tool.
The studded end of this roller acts as a gentle and holistic alternative to micro-needling, helping to relieve tension in the jaw and brow bone as well as stimulate blood flow. Focusing the studded edge on fine lines and wrinkles can also help to ease their appearance.
The smooth side of this roller is a perfect tool to use after your skincare routine. While rolling product deeper into the skin, the cool smoothness of this roller relieves skin irritation and redness. For people with sensitive skin, use the smooth edge to decrease puffiness without irritation.
HH tip: Gently place the smooth side right underneath the eye after applying your favourite eye cream. Hold the roller there and repeat on the other eye to reduce information and calm that morning puff.
Province Apothecary Cupping Set
Made for sensitive, mature, dull skin.
Out of all the facial tools Province Apothecary offers, this set gets the most questions.
This cupping set is so effective for lifting sensitive skin that we’ve included it in our Province Apothecary Facial as an added service. Our aesthetician Jeronnie recommends this for folks who want gentle sculpting without the deeper pressure commonly felt with Gua Shas or Jade Rollers.
At home, this cupping set can be paired with your favourite serum for an easy glide to finish off your AM or PM routine. Offering support to losened skin and discolouration, these tiny cups pack a gentle punch. Keep in mind, if your skin is sensitive we suggest using this set 1-2 times a week.
HH tip: If you are looking to experience the full power of this set and the magic of all PA products, book a Province Apothecary Organic Facial with Cupping.
Try with: Province Apothecary Rejuvenating + Hydrating Face Serum or Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum.
Province Apothecary Dry Facial Brushes
Even skin tone, quick cell turnover, gentle exfoliation, reduced dark circles and lymphatic drainage: Dry Brushing does it all. We often turn to creams and cleansers to achieve results that are easily accessible through a consistent dry brushing routine.
Made for acneic, dull, mature, clogged and puffy skin.
Province Apothecary offers two dry brushes. The Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush is made from responsibly harvested oak and goat hair while the Ultra Soft Facial Dry Brush is vegan, made from PCR (post-consumer recycled) plastic.
Here's how to know which brush is right for you:
The Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush is designed with extra dry skin in mind. Starting at the shoulders, neck and back of the ears to activate our lymph nodes, this dry brush works to ease fine lines and help relieve congested skin. Use more focused movement where blackheads seem to stay, like the nose and forehead.
The Ultra Soft Facial is made for sensitive skin that is prone to breakouts. This dry brush is completely washable using soap and water, making it the best choice acne prone skin concerned with bacteria lingering on facial tools. Offering the same skincare benefits as the Daily Glow Facial Dry Brush, this sensitive version holds softer bristles for gentle application.
HH tip: Before dry brushing, start with a clean dry face. We advise following up with a nourishing oil cleanser after dry brushing, making the morning a perfect time to brush all the dead skin away and get the blood flowing. If you prefer to implement this routine in the evening, feel free to double cleanse both before and after you dry brush.
Province Apothecary Reusable Silicone Sheet Mask
Made for dry, dull, damaged and mature skin.
Want your products to sink deep into your skin? Is your skin sensitive to the touch? If so, the Reusable Silicone Sheet Mask is the tool for you.
This reusable set comes with two products: a sheet mask for the full face and two under-eye masks. Made from medical and food-grade silicone, these masks are made to be used again and again offering a sustainable effective alternative to one-in-done sheet masks.
Instead of sculpting or exfoliating, this set is made for people looking to deeply nourish and repair their skin. After applying your nighttime routine, simply put on both the eye and face mask to lock in the maximum amount of benefits from your most beloved products. This set also supports the benefits of slugging, locking in layers of rich balms and night creams.
HH tip: Jeronnie, Health Huts beloved aesthetician recommends using this masks after receiving a facial. "This set aids in faster absorption and eliminates evaporation of moisture and ingredients from your products, allowing for your facial to go the extra mile" - Jeronnie.
