Welcome to a new era of skincare… GADGETS. Yes, that’s right they beep, they plug in, they light up. They even look like they came out of an Apple store. Today, I’m sharing my favorites for every budget.
Yes, some of these are an investment but instead of doing monthly facials this is what you can do at home on your own time. First, I’m going to talk to you about the Neutrogena Light Therapy Acne Mask. As many of you know, I’ve struggled with acne for a very long time since I was in my 20’s. I would spend countless hours at dermatologists and facialists offices under the blue and red light. I discovered this gadget recently and all you have to do is put it on and you have 30 treatments per applicator. The company recommends that you use it for 10 minutes for 30 days straight to see the best results. I love to pop it on before I go to bed when I’m watching TV to kill the time. Best part of all? It’s only $39.99!
Next, we have the Iris Illuminating Eye Massager from Foreo. It reduces wrinkles, crows feet and fine lines. It also helps absorb your eye creams and serums better. It reduces puffiness so I love to use it after a wine night with my girls I like to use it in the morning for 30 seconds on each eye with my favorite eye cream. This helps stimulate the collagen to give younger and refreshed eyes! For those of you who are still young and in your 20s and 30s, take a note from me… start taking care of your under-eyes today! There’s only so much you can do that doesn’t involve needles.
Now we have LightStim for wrinkles-– one of my all time favorites. I discovered this from my facialist, Shani Darden! When I go in to see her, she has the sheet that I lay in front of but they also have one that you can use at home! Before you use it, lather the LightStim Photo-Masque on your face. Then, lay the LightStim it on each area of your face for three minutes. It is great for collagen, elasticity and smoothing wrinkles. They also have one for acne that really clears up any inflamed areas.
I’ve talked about this last product before and I’m talking about it again because I’m clearly obsessed! I’m all about the NuFace Microcurrent Facial Toning Device. This is all about contouring and sculpting. Many women are spending big bucks on a procedure called “Thermage” and guess what? This is a cheaper and at home version of thermage. You use your gel primer first, then turn on your Nu Face and move it upwards from the middle of your face to your ears. The best part is that you can actually feel it working while you’re using it. So there’s no doubt that it works!
It really is a new age of skincare gadgets… I feel like they’re the Tesla of skincare! My favorite is that you can do it all in the comfort of your own home. As a working and busy mom, being able to do these little beauty regimens at home makes a world of a difference.
As my send off… make sure you take care of you! You’ll be a better mom, friend and you’ll probably love checking yourself out in the mirror a little more. What skincare gadgets are you currently using? Drop them in the comments so I can give them a try!
