Yes and no. Any kind of face massage can offer lymphatic drainage benefits to help your skin eliminate toxins and rid itself of puffiness. Your tool of choice can be anything—jade roller, electric device, whatever works for you. Face massagers can also help your skin absorb its favorite serums or face moisturizers. That said, when it comes to de-puffing and de-inflaming, the effects of facial massage will be short-term. 

So turn on some relaxing tunes, have a glass of wine nearby, then get to unwinding with one of these face massage tools that are sure to bring sensorial spa-like feels to your own bathroom. Massage on.
