Who says you need to visit a spa to give your skin to the red-carpet facial treatment? With the consistent use of some powerhouse products, you can potentially perform miracles on your own skin – at home. Check out some of the newest gadgets. Are they worth the hefty price tag?
First of all, you should know the challenges that you are up against. Sun damage? Dehydration? All of the above? The Neutrogena SkinScanner ($59) attaches to your phone and reveals all of the dirty little secrets your skin is hiding, and what areas need specific attention. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, check out your mirror.
The Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device ($99) is more sophisticated than it appears. This battery operated doo-dad has several speeds to use during your daily/nightly skincare regime: 2 speeds for cleansing, and 2 for applying serums and creams. Comparable to the tried and true Clarisonic Mia, this silicone version does not require replacement brushes nor does it need charging.
Who is having Friday the 13th flashbacks? Jason, anyone? The Spectralite Faceware Pro ($435) delivers red and blue light therapy, benefitting the skin’s texture and promising to banish both wrinkles and acne. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket and you don’t take yourself too seriously, this is the gadget for you.
