We’re in an age where everything has been gadgetized and if it hasn’t, it’s just a matter of time. The decision by manufacturers to transform beauty rituals into powered devices is being driven by increasing consumer demand for beauty solutions that they can use on themselves, at home. Here’s a look at great tech beauty products you should treat yourself to.
Sonic-powered Facial Cleansing
We all aspire to having glowing, younger-looking skin. Nowadays, you can get a handheld sonic-powered silicon facial cleansing device that boosts circulation and purifies the skin, without irritating or stripping it of moisture. One such great purchase is the Here and There Gift Set by FOREO, which includes two facial cleansing devices — the LUNA Mini and LUNA Play (perfect for gym or travel). The Swedish brand claims they remove 99.5% of dead skin cells, residue, dirt, oil and makeup, leaving skin cleansed and glowing.
Facial Wrinkle Reduction Device
The home-use device, developed by the medical esthetic experts at Sensica, puts paid to expensive, repeated and time-consuming visits to beauty salons for wrinkle and line reduction treatments. The device, which harnesses the technical abilities of professional salon treatments and packs them into a handheld device, is also a perfect solution for those who want to look and feel younger and more radiant, without resorting to a facelift, fillers or Botox. Sensilift effectively reduces wrinkles and fine lines, whilst firming up the skin and improving its texture and appearance. It’s safe too – no risk, no surgery.
DIY Light Therapy
Who doesn’t enjoy a light therapy treatment at a spa or salon? Well, now you can do it yourself at a fraction of the price, thanks to the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Spot Treatment. The wand-like device uses the same blue and red light utilized by estheticians and dermatologists to quickly shrink the size of acne spots and kill off bacteria.
Whiter and Brighter Teeth
Everyone wants a great skin, but setting it off against a yellow-toothed smile is probably not the look you’re trying to achieve. FOREO’s ISSA 2 sonic-powered silicone-head toothbrush is the device you’re looking for. Not only will it improve your oral health and keep bacteria away, but the sonic pulsations get rid of plaque much quicker than an ordinary toothbrush will. The device, which features 16 cleaning speeds and creates up to 11,000 sonic pulses a minute, leaves your teeth polished. It’s also easy on the gums.
Smooth as Silk
Hair removal is and always will be a hot topic for debate, with consumers constantly searching for novel and better ways to achieve soft, silky, hairless skin. Introducing the Sensilight Mini, also by Sensica. The handheld device disables hair re-growth at the root through heat and light, by using the company’s patented technology – Reactive Pulsed Light (RPL™). RPL™ is not only painless but has been clinically proven to cause a remarkable reduction in hair growth. Again, the device is designed for home use, which means cost-saving DIY hair-removal from the comfort of one’s own home at a time that suits you.
Beauty has never been more affordable, convenient, or cost efficient than in the age of DIY beauty tech.
