While it is possible to find all kinds of skin care equipment on the internet, not all of it is necessary. For instance, you can buy a facial slimming instrument, a portable ultrasound skin treater, or a mite test machine with one click of a mouse. But are these things really necessary for your skin care regimen,
What is the essential skin care equipment that you will need to have in your home,
You should start with a good razor. If you’re buying an electric razor, you need to determine whether you want a corded or cordless version. Cordless razors are portable, but they require that you change or recharge their batteries frequently.
You will also need to determine whether you want a foil or rotary system. Foil systems can cause irritation and may lead to ingrown hairs. But, if you have heavy hair growth, a rotary system can pinch the skin.
Consider the price of replacement heads as well. A cheap base system with expensive disposable parts is no bargain.
If you are going to travel with the razor, you will probably want to choose a razor which has a travel kit to keep it safe.
On the other hand, if you are planning to use a safety razor, you will want to choose a good quality instrument. Don’t choose a disposable razor. These razors will leave your face or legs with nicks and cuts. Instead, look for a good quality non-disposable razor. The Mach 3 is a good example.
The next piece of skin care equipment that is essential for the home is a shower brush. Many people think that running a washcloth over their body in the shower and think that it is sufficient. But your entire body needs to be exfoliated frequently, and that is where a shower brush comes in. Brushing your skin also distributes the body’s natural oils over a broad area. Choose a large brush with a good handle.
Another essential piece of skin care equipment is a magnifying mirror. A magnifying mirror helps you see your skin in detail. You can get magnifying mirrors at 5 times magnification or higher. Options on magnifying mirrors include lights and fogless systems. There are full sized and compact mirrors as well.
The final piece of home skin care equipment that I’m going to suggest is the facial steamer. If you can’t get to a spa regularly, you should consider using a facial steamer once a month.
Steamers make ozone that is blown over your face. This moistens your skin. It whitens and purifies your skin. Your blood circulation improves as a result. And skin metabolism is quickened. You will also find that when you steam your skin, the dirt that clogs the pores is loosened.
You only need to use the steamer once a month, and then only for six to eight minutes.
There you have it, 4 essential pieces of home skin care equipment.
