Take your rou­tine to the next level with a skin­care gadget

Go gadget and en­ter a new age of skin­care.

Araft of new high-tech tools is rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing beauty, es­pe­cially when it comes to skin­care. Cleans­ing brushes were launched to great fan­fare a few years ago, but the cat­e­gory has ex­panded to in­cor­po­rate de­vices for mask­ing, anti-age­ing treat­ments and eye re­ju­ve­na­tion. These tools are not a re­place­ment; they’re de­signed to work in con­junc­tion with your ex­ist­ing at-home and in-clinic reg­i­men to de­liver quicker, bet­ter re­sults.

“In­no­va­tion just for the sake of in­no­va­tion isn’t good enough any­more,” says Foreo Ocea­nia gen­eral man­ager Han­nah Holmes. “Brands are be­ing chal­lenged to bring in­trin­sic value to our in­creas­ingly time-poor lives. [So] while pro­fes­sional equip­ment de­liv­ers a more con­cen­trated treat­ment, at-home de­vices pro­vide ac­ces­si­bil­ity to skin­care tech­nolo­gies that many couldn’t oth­er­wise af­ford.”

It’s also the start of what Holmes believes is a move to­wards greater per­son­al­i­sa­tion, in which “ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence will play an in­te­gral role in cus­tomised beauty so­lu­tions”.

At the other end of the spec­trum, there has also been a resur­gence in crys­tal face rollers such as jade, rose quartz or tour­ma­line, which can boost lym­phatic drainage to help re­duce puffi­ness and soothe the com­plex­ion.

All of which is to say that it’s not just what you put on your skin. How you put it on could be the dif­fer­ence be­tween look­ing good and look­ing great.
