We've recently hit the two-month mark of #athome, and while many of us are itching to get back to our routines, we've been sharing some top tips from some of Olivia's most trusted resources to help get you through this period. At the beginning of May, celebrity facialists Melanie Grant and Joanna Vargas broke down their secrets on how to maintain your skin's glow at home, but there are few tools out there to help prolong that spa-like radiance. Below, we break down the five must-have tools to keep skin looking bright, tight, and so fresh that we'll all put our best faces forward once together again.

Joanna Vargas Magic Glow Wand, $285, available at

1. Joanna Vargas Magic Glow Wand
Known for giving Hollywood's A-list their pristine visages ahead of red carpet season, Vargas brings her deft touch to her first-ever device. Featuring four modes that toggle between cool or hot with massage effects to target different problems—think puffiness, redness, or just elimination of build-up—Vargas's Magic Glow Wand does it all in a portable fashion day or night. To give the effect of a lymphatic drainage facial and to de-puff the face further, Vargas recommends starting at the neck area and working your way up. She also loves the "cool + massage" setting paired with a serum for a cryotherapy-like treat to decrease inflammation and create a glowy appearance.

TriPollar STOP X, $398, available at

2. TriPollar STOP X
Those who have done radio-frequency treatments will appreciate this device for its ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles with a safe, painless, and easy approach. Wrapped in a sleek rose gold, the TriPollar STOP X is the latest version of the brand's highly covetable series of devices whose focus is to improve skin's texture.

Microcurrent technology firms, smooths, and tightens the skin leaving the complexion refreshed and bright.
