Need to amp up your skin and self-care regimes now that facials treatments have been put on hold? These innovative beauty devices bring real, in-salon results to you in the comfort your home.
Foreo UFO2 Sonic Powered Mask Device
It’s no secret that Foreo‘s Luna 3 cleansing device provides game-changing purification and stimulating facials massages at home. But the skin tech brand has another innovation that deserves a prime spot on your skincare shelf: The Foreo UFO 2. This powerful palm-sized device boasts four extensive functions to boost the efficacy of face masks. Think thermotherapy, which employs super-fast heating technology to soften skin and open up pores to help products penetrate even deeper; cryotherapy, which delivers freezing effects down to four degrees to provide tightening, lifting and de-puffing effects; eight LED lights each with unique skin-boosting benefits from purple to reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve radiance, to yellow, which soothes and relieves inflamed skin and redness; and lastly, this produces 10,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute to increase microcirculation and the absorption of active ingredients, while providing a facial muscle-relaxing massage as well. Compatible with their own and any other brand’s sheet masks, this should be paired with your smart phone so you can track and customise a skincare routine with their app.

Available in black, white and limited edition pink, this sleek toothbrush comes with three custom settings to adjust intensity and speed; a brush head made of soft and durable DuPont nylon bristles that produces micro pressure bubbles and mimics pressure waves to reach deep between teeth; a tongue cleaner; a built-in timer that prompts the user to stop in two minutes; and four-week battery life and inductive wireless charging for safety and portability.

Fitting snugly on the face, the mask’s bands of red light penetrate the dermis to stimulate collagen production, while blue light aims to soothe inflammation and combat future breakouts.

In just nine minutes a day, the device—which comes with its own in-built eye shield—is as effective as it is sophisticated. “LED therapy uses colour wavelengths, such as red light, penetrating into the subdermal layer of the skin to encourage cell regeneration for firmer and smoother skin,” says Dr Angeline Yong of Angeline Yong Dermatology. “LED-based devices represent one of the safest tools for the treatment of skin inflammation, such as acne and ageing.
