The Best in Beauty Tech: 6 Beauty Gadgets to Add to Your Cart
Looking to buy a fun beauty gadget to add to your skincare routine and not sure which ones are worth the investment? Below are some of the best ones for you to try.
There’s no doubt that the beauty world has changed as of late and, due to lockdowns and restrictions, many people have started to take clinical treatments into their own hands. Which is great considering all the technological advancements that have taken the skincare industry by storm. Although what’s worth it and what isn’t? Let’s chat through our favourite beauty gadgets and products so you don't waste your time or money!
If you love a thorough, deep cleanse you will love this device. It’s essentially just a cleansing brush to really ensure you clean your skin well before applying serums. This model, in particular, would be best for normal skin, so if you are more of a sensitive/rosacea-prone skin type, we’d tread with caution. PS. your barrier will thank you if you don’t use it every day.
Microcurrent devices are having a moment and this tool is designed to help tone your facial muscles, which over time can help tighten the skin and minimise the appearance of sagging. Sagging associated with ageing is honestly inevitable though - but at least there are products on the market now that can help treat these concerns at home. Did we mention that this tool is Dermatologist approved too?!
Omnilux is a highly trusted clinical brand, so it’s no wonder that their at-home LED mask is taking the social world by storm. Red light has been clinically proven to help with redness, fight fine lines, wrinkles and promote a healthy, glowy complexion. Plus, this mask only takes 10 minutes of use a day so it’s very easy to add into your skincare routine. Obviously the more you use it the better the results and, while it’s not as strong as clinical LED’s, it’s nice to have the option to use this at home.
This is a great LED therapy device for treating acne-prone skin and random breakouts. Blue light has been clinically proven to kill acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation. Additionally, it has been coupled with some red light which can help calm the skin further. We also love that this is a portable device and can be used on other areas of your body such as your neck and chest!
This is a facial massage roller loved by celebrities and created by Nurse Jamie who treats them. It’s meant to replicate the technique used in facial massage to promote blood flow and give your face that post-massage like glow - without having to visit a clinic. It’s such a fun tool to use and one that can easily be used while bingeing your favourite shows on Netflix.
If you’ve continuously had your laser hair removal appointments cancelled due to lockdowns then this is a handy at-home hair removal device to have on hand in the interim. It uses intense pulse light rather than laser to slowly reduce hair growth and it’s very safe and easy to use. However, it is only made for people with dark hair and light skin, meaning sadly if you have either light hair or dark skin it’s best to avoid.
