There are so many different makeup and beauty tools out there, making it extremely easy for your cosmetic bag to become cluttered. To save you some space, as well as time, check out these makeup tools that also double as skin care tools.

Facial Roller
Facial rollers are commonly used by Chinese medical and skin care experts, as they are able to reduce redness while promoting the draining of any excess fluid lying beneath the skin. It also stimulates blood flow, which results in defined facial contours and a brighter, more lifted, appearance, doing away with the need for the amount of makeup that you would usually apply. In addition to this, using the rollers before applying any skin care products will help to prepare your skin for the ingredients that will be following, enabling them to better penetrate your skin’s layers.

Cellulose Sponges
Cellulose sponges are made from natural fibers and are great for both removing makeups as well as simply cleansing the skin. Soft and absorbent, these sponges are can be re-used, and are also incredibly compact, making them ideal for those who frequently travel.

A set of both slant and point tweezers in your beauty arsenal is essential, as you will be able to use these for so many different things. From removing unwanted stray hairs to placing false lashes, having the choice of both makes a huge difference.

Primer
Primers were designed to be applied before any other makeup product so that they could provide a base for foundation, and anything else, to grip on to, enabling makeup to last for much longer. However, primers also have a number of different skin benefits, as many of them also contain moisturizing and hydrating ingredients, as well as antioxidants and SPF. Primers also help to absorb any excess oil on the skin, making it a great tool for those who have oily skin. If you do have oily skin, then you are likely also battling the appearance of large pores, and this is something else that a primer can help with.

Lip Balm with SPF
When it comes to facial skin care, many people often end up unintentionally neglecting their lips, leading to dryness and chapped skin. Rather than trying to cover this up with some lipstick, invest in a high-quality lip balm instead, preferably one that contains SPF. This can then be reapplied throughout the day, not only giving your lips a subtle shine but protecting them as well. If you want some color, look for a tinted lip balm, but make sure that it still contains plenty of hydrating ingredients.

Everybody has their go-to makeup tools, but these are made even better when they can bring about beneficial effects to your skin as well. From a cellulose sponge to cleanse and remove makeup to a tinted lip balm to add a pop of color while protecting your lips at the same time, these are beauty tools that everybody should have in their cosmetics bag.
