As Far as I'm Concerned, the Chantecaille Bio Lifting Massage Roller Is a Game Changer

When it comes to beauty, I have an affinity for skin care and an even bigger soft spot for skin-care gadgets. From LED light therapy to microcurrent facial devices and even just your standard facial rollers, I geek out over the technology and its ability to produce real results. (So much so, that my own personal collection of tools and devices can turn my usual 20-minute nightly skin-care routine into a full hour of beauty pampering.)

Anyone who's ever taken the time to use one of these handheld devices knows just how relaxing the experience can be. Similar to kicking your feet up and doing a face mask, devoting the time to giving yourself a mini spa-level facial with a beauty gadget is equally satisfying.

While my collection probably doesn't need another standard jade roller in it (I have three), I had never tried anything like the unique Chantecaille Advanced Bio Lifting+ Massage Tool, so I welcomed the opportunity to add it.

I think we can all agree that we're in the middle of some pretty stressful times - my skin sure does with all of these stress breakouts I've been getting. To help combat this, I've been dedicating more time to self-care and pampering than ever before. This means bi-weekly face masks, weekly manicures, and even nightly facial massages. Spending a little extra time on myself while I binge-watch more Netflix or FaceTime with my sister is my favorite way to unwind.

Many people's lives - including their work - have been driven indoors amid the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. But now, with some retail stores, restaurants, and hotels reopening around the country, you might be starting to think about booking a little getaway. Perhaps a road trip to avoid flying? No matter your destination, hotel stays will likely be involved, but what steps can you take to make sure you're being smart to keep yourself and others safe and healthy? "Hotels are actually a very safe place right now," Chip Rogers, president and CEO of the American Hotel & Lodging Association, who helped create new safety guidelines for hotels to follow during COVID-19, told POPSUGAR. "In fact, a group of medical experts recently released a list of all of the activities that people would want to do this summer. They put them on a scale from one to 10 with 10 being the least safe like an indoor concert and one being the most safe like staying quarantined in your house. Staying at a hotel ranked right up there with golf and camping." That said, there are still some precautions you should take when you're away from home.
