Besides relaxing tense muscles, this is said to stimulate blood circulation so your skin looks more toned and radiant. After soaping up in the shower, move the massager in an upward circular motion over problem areas. The massager is recommended to be used on damp skin and you can use it with anything, from shower gel or scrub to massage oil.

Take this into the shower with you. But before you turn on the tap, brush your skin when it is still dry. Dry-brushing gets rid of dead skin cells, and supposedly promotes better blood flow and reduces the appearance of cellulite. Do this every day for smoother, glowing skin.

Hold this in the palm of your hand like you would a computer mouse, slide it over problem areas (such as sagging underarms or jiggly thighs), and let the device’s three combined wavelengths do the rest of the work. Best used on bare skin, the lightweight gadget is said to stimulate collagen production, firm skin and break down fat. You can use this on your face too, but only on the cheeks and chin.

If you’re investing in a slimming cream, you’ll want to make sure its active ingredients get absorbed into the skin for better results. So after rubbing the product on, massage it into skin with this gadget, which reportedly uses a micro-wavelength to increase the penetration of your body care. The device also emits a red light that reportedly improves skin’s metabolism, leaving it brighter and more luminous. Bonus: The massager also promises to break down fat.

#5 Refa for Body, $480.

We first noticed the brand’s Refa Pro and Refa Carat devices because they did a good job of lifting and firming the skin on our faces. Now, there’s Refa for Body, which uses the same solar-powered microcurrent as its predecessors to tone and firm skin. But, unlike the others, Refa for Body comes with four – not two – rollerballs. This offers a better grip on areas such as the belly and thighs, and is easier to manoeuvre over the body.
