Skin Care Devices To Supercharge Your At-Home Routine

Our favourite tools for tighter and brighter skin you’ve been dreaming about

Skincare's making a move into the 21st century, and as our serums and creams get more advanced, so do the ways we can apply them. Many of us don’t have the time or money to go to skin clinics regularly to get the treatments we need to make our skin the best it can be, but now we don’t have to. Thanks to some high-tech brands, we can have our very own treatments in the comfort of our own home.

LED Tools

Bring those high tech (and high price) facial treatments into your home with these LED face tools. While you may look a bit like a robot/human hybrid during this treatment, these gadgets are worth it.

LED light treatments can benefit almost every skin type. Red light boosts collagen production and calms inflammation, blue light neutralises acne bacteria and cleanses pores for a clearer complexion, while green light reduces the effects of broken capillaries and pigmentation, yellow light soothes redness and white light calms sensitive or irritated skin.

These tools come in all shapes and sizes, from a full-sized face mask to handheld pens for specific areas, so no matter what, there’s an LED tool to fit your needs.

Face Massaging & Micro-Vibration Tools

Micro-vibration tools are not only incredibly useful, they’re insanely therapeutic. The face gadgets use vibrations and micro-currents to massage your way to tighter, firmer skin. Not only do these tools do everything your average skin roller does, the vibrations stimulate facial muscles to promote collagen production. This assists with skin elasticity, blood flow and lymphatic draining.

What does all that mean? Basically, these tools will give you brighter, firmer skin, reduce the signs of aging and reduce discoloration such as under eye darkness or skin pigmentation. They will reinvigorate tired or puffy skin, they help your serums penetrate deeper into your skin and they feel amazing. Must I go on?

Derma Rollers

If you have acne scars, uneven skin texture, fine lines or hyperpigmentation, derma rollers may be your saving grace.

These gadgets have hundreds of tiny needles that puncture your skin in order to stimulate blood flow to the face and assist with rejuvenation and regeneration, therefore lessening the appearance of scarring and pigmentation and evening the skin’s texture.

We’ll be honest, it may hurt a little at first, but these at-home tools have smaller needles and are less invasive than your more intense treatments. Your skin will thank you for it, and if you’re too scared, there are non-invasive derma rollers to get you started.

In-clinic micro-needling treatments can cost over $500 per session, so these tools may save your skin and your bank account!

Cleansing Brushes

These gadgets may be the easiest way to remove makeup yet! With comfortable bristles, therapeutic rotations and multiple settings, electronic cleansing brushes do all of the hard work for you, making them up to 6 times more effective at makeup removal than hands and towels.

Not only do they leave you with fresh, clean skin at night, using them in the morning or before makeup application will remove all residue and dead skin to create a smooth, fresh base for the best makeup application you’ve ever had.
