What if you could get brighter, smoother, clearer skin with the push of a button? Wellâ€”thanks to the newest wave of at-home skin care tools for mature skinâ€”you kind of can. From a high-tech cleansing brush, to electrical currents, to a device that suctions your skin, these beauty tools use doctor’s-office technology to bring you noticeable resultsâ€”no trip to the dermatologist required. Below, four amazing, at-home skin care devices, and which one is right for you:
What it does: Lifts, tones and smoothes skin with low-level electrical currents. If anti-aging is your primary concern, this device is for you.
How it works: The device sends micro-currents of electricity deep into the skin, setting off a series of cellular changes, including the production and storage of collagen and elastin. The result is an improved, lifted appearance, better skin tone and balance, and diminished pores.
What to expect: Even though NuFACE sends electricity into the skin, it’s not painful. In fact, it feels a little bit like a cold, tingly massage. The device offers an immediate tightening effect after the first use, andâ€”with continued useâ€”leaves skin lifted and firmed.
Why we love it: Two words: instant gratification. If we want to look better in five minutes flat, NuFace is our go-to. As soon as we finish just one treatment, our skin looks noticeably tighter. And since microcurrent treatments donâ€™t require any downtime, the device has become a staple in our party-prep routines. We can put makeup on afterward, and go about our routines as usual. With continued, daily use, the NuFACE offers long-term results, too. In just sixty days, we saw a significant improvement in facial contour, skin tone, and wrinkle reduction.
What it does: The device uses nano-current technology to treat numerous skin conditions, ranging from acne to anti-aging.Â It boosts radiance, enhances lymphatic drainage, kills blemish-causing bacteria, accelerates cellular turnover and more!
Who itâ€™s for: ZIIP is suitable for all skin types, even highly reactive, sensitive skin. Itâ€™s great for those with multiple skincare concerns, i.e, acne and aging.
How it works: ZIIP sends nano-sized electrical currents deep in the cellular level of your skin to promote the production of collagen and elastin, plumping and smoothing from the inside out. Nano currents also zap bacteria thatâ€™s causing acne, boost radiance, and enhance lymphatic drainage. You can look forward to seeing brighter, clearer skin after just four to five sessions with your ZIIP.
What to expect: There is no pain or recovery time with ZIIP, and the treatment is much less sensory than you might expect. The metal discs may feel warm on your skin, but in a pleasant way. Much like the NuFACE, you will see both immediate and cumulative effects.
Why we love it: Weâ€™ve said it before and weâ€™ll say it againâ€”having a ZIIP is like having your own personal facialist, right at your fingertips. We love the deviceâ€™s versatility, and how it addresses more concerns than just aging. In fact, the ZIIP offers not one, but four electrical facialsâ€”anti-aging, sensitivity, acne, or treating the delicate eye area. Itâ€™s basically all the benefits of clinical treatments, without the clinic.
#3: FOREO Luna 2Â
What it does: If lasers and microcurrents arenâ€™t your jam, might we suggest an alternative approach to treating mature skin? The Luna 2 is first and foremost a cleansing brush, but it also addresses concerns related to agingâ€”fine lines, wrinkles, and firmness, to name a few.
Who itâ€™s for: The Luna 2 is suitable for everyoneâ€”they even have skin type-specific brush heads for sensitive, oily, combination, and menâ€™s skin.
How it works: In additional to unclogging pores, buffing away dead cells, and leaving skin squeaky-clean, the Luna 2 uses gentle vibrations to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What to expect: After cleansing, just flip the device and apply the opposite surface to your wrinkle-prone areas. The reverse side uses lower-frequency pulsations to visibly reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and leave skin looking firm and lifted.Â As for sensation, the Luna 2â€™s soft, silicone touch-points gently massage your skin, making for a pleasant, pain-free experience. Bonus! The LUNA 2 also improves the absorption of your favorite skincare products.
Why we love it: As busy ladies, weâ€™re suckers for anything that saves us time and space. Instead of reaching for two separate devices, the Luna 2 seamlessly combines our cleansing routine with a treatment for aging skin. So whether youâ€™re looking to fight acne or smooth away fine lines, the Luna 2 makes an amazing skincare workhorse.
What it does: Basically,Â Conture is a gym for your skin.Â Like a personal trainer for your face, this gentle, hand-held device helps you tone your way to tighter, brighter, more refreshed-looking complexion. Â
Who itâ€™s for:Â Conture is suitable for anyone who wants to diminish signs of aging quickly and painlessly.
How it works: Â Think of Conture as a workout, but for your face instead of your bod. It gently suctions up and releases skin, stimulating blood flow and exercising facial muscles to produce a brighter, tighter complexion.
What to expect: In terms of sensation, Conture is kind of like a tiny, handheld vacuum. Itâ€™s totally painlessâ€”youâ€™ll feel some light suctioning action, but thatâ€™s it! To use, slowly glide the device along your face and neck after cleansing, pausing three to five seconds before each glide. Repeat the process as many times as you need to fully cover the treatment area. Bonus! Thereâ€™s even a gentle setting for the delicate tissue around the eyes.
Why we love it: Itâ€™s not just our bodies that need those gainsâ€”our complexions do, too! Unlike a strenuous weight-lifting session, however, Conture doesn’t completely suck. (Well, it does, but it’s effortless and easy, and won’t make you sweat. You know what we mean.) The best part? After using it for a month, several b-glowing staffers reported tighter, firmer, more luminous skin. So if you’re looking to combat signs of agingÂ without making a huge financial/time commitment, Conture is the perfect device for you. Go on, tell fine lines and wrinkles to suck it!
Who itâ€™s for: Anyone who wants to treat fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, dark spots, and uneven skin tone.
How it works: This FDA-cleared mask is lined with anti-blemish blue light, plus four spectra of powerful red lights. Infrared and deep red light work to boost collagen, while light red and amber keep skin cells healthy, fade dark spots, and reverse sun damage. The totally hands-free device stimulates collagen, firming skin and plumping out lines and wrinkles. It also reduces acne, minimizes pore size, calms redness, promotes an even skin tone.
What to expect: The hands-free device is surprisingly comfy to wear, and was carefully designed to fit all face shapes and sizes. It’s a totally painless treatment, and only takes 3 minutes to complete. Â
Why we love it: Look ma, no hands! Since b-glowing gals busy gals, weâ€™re crushing on the convenience factor of this device. Itâ€™s hands-and-hassle-free, allowing us to run around the house doing chores while simultaneously treating our skin. Plus, the built-in timer shuts off automatically after three minutesâ€”no thought required! Oh, and then there are the results: AMAZING. We noticed firmer, plumper, smoother skin in just two weeks, and one b-glowing staffer raved about how clear and calm her complexion looked.
