This facial massager is the latest example of Asian beauty secrets making their way over to the west. The Tatcha Ageless Akara Gold Massager is intended for daily use in order to awaken skin, detoxify via lymphatic cleansing and relieve tension. Inspired by Japanese acupressure practices, the face massage tool is gold-leafed and can be either heated or cooled.
The facial massager offers people one way to literally take their skincare into their own hands. According to Tatcha founder Victoria Tsai, "facial massage helps to reduce anxiety and increase sympathetic nervous activity and to boost elasticity and softness of the skin." The device offers long-term beauty benefits that users will likely not notice instantly or even in the short term says Refinery29.
