THE HIGH TECH SKINCARE YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
THE MUST-HAVE BEAUTY GADGETS OF 2017
In an ever-changing world of beauty trends and improving technologies, it can be difficult to get your head around the must-have gadgets and the 'gone tomorrow' fads. Here we’ve found silicon microbeads that will give your face a deep clean, a machine that will take your face to the gym and a device which will give you spa quality facials.
The Deep Clean Anti-Ageing Machine
Foreo’s patented skincare technology combines shape and motion to generate a highly effective cleansing and anti-ageing tool. It is the perfect way to prepare your skin for the day or night ahead. The egg-shaped head of Foreo has hundreds of little silicon microbeads that vibrate with the device to help clear pores and get a deeper clean. The conveniently thumb-sized button at the bottom of the device has two settings; the first press will give you the cleansing vibration (a slightly more vigorous buzzing) and the second anti-aging mode vibrates at a slower tempo to be used to massage in any moisturisers and serums. The first setting is best used with a gentle foaming cleanser - the vibrating microbeads will help the cleanser get deeper into your pores and will leave your skin feeling fresher and firmer. The built in anti-ageing technology is unparalleled in the market - when the microbeads vibrate you can feel the device stimulating blood flow and firming your skin. It is best used in an upward motion to encourage blood flow and prevent sagging in areas that first show signs of ageing. On the back, the device has concentric indentations that, when used in the anti-ageing low frequency mode, can be used to help soften wrinkles, especially deeper lines by the eyes. This brilliant anti-ageing device is for everyday use and the silicon skin makes it completely waterproof, so it can be used in the shower and is very easy to keep clean too.
The Instant Face Lift
From the makers of the original ‘non-invasive facial workout’, the Face Gym Pro gives your face the workout you never knew it needed. This electrical handheld skincare device works by stimulating facial muscles through its patented diamond faceted probes. The two probes are angled slightly apart from each other and while pressing on the skin and moving the probes in an upward motion they stimulate the facial muscles and engage muscles that you never even knew existed in your face. The facial workout gadget has been built upon the acclaimed face gym treatment that entails 30 minutes of facial workout from warm up, cardio, and strength training to a cool down. Your workout with this gadget can last anywhere between 10-30 minutes, 2-3 times a week, and is best done after cleansing. You can expect to see results immediately, but when used over 6 months the face gym pro can make a significant impact on the state of your skin. Follow your facial workout with a gentle massage with some face oil or a moisturiser.
The Facial On a Stick
The Skinesis by Sarah Chapman is designed to allow you to achieve the results of a facial at home and this device really works some no-fuss facial magic. The gadget works its probes deep into the tissues of your skin to drain toxins, lift lack-luster skin, and invigorate blood circulation. The Skinesis has 48 probes on 8 rolling massage heads to lift and sculpt your face while improving the texture of your skin. Simply press the probes into your skin and roll the heads from your chin to under your ears holding the device at a 90 degree angle to your face. Work your way up the face separating the wish-bone shape of the gadget to get your desired angle. The probes can also be used in the same way on your neck to help reverse the signs of ageing. This gadget is as close as you’ll get to a facial at home and it can be used with a cleanser or alternatively with a layer of moisturiser on the skin to massage the hydration deeper into the tissues.
