DIY Spa: 5 Skincare Gadgets for Smoother, Youthful, and Radiant Skin - Lifestyle Asia

There’s one item that’s Kim Kardashian approved.

When it comes to home skincare, we usually think of the traditional steps of cleansing then applying creams and serums on our faces. After all, we can save efforts like micro-needling and face massages for monthly facial appointments. However, no matter how devoted you were to visiting your facialist, multiple lockdowns put a temporary stop to clinical beauty procedures.

But the silver lining of it all may be that we discovered how much we could do at home—even a spa-like facial! Sans an extra pair of hands, here are easy-to-use home skincare devices to spoil your skin with extra nourishing boosts.

Whether you want a deep cleanse, celebrity-approved light therapy, a toning session (or all of the above), you may find your next favorite skincare investment in machine-form.

Panasonic Micro-Foaming Face Cleansing Device

For a thorough facial cleanse, Panonic’s micro-foaming device has interchangeable attachments to purify deeply. The first step is to add your facial wash and water into the machine, and it will rapidly rotate to generate a dense micro-foam. 

After five seconds, you can start guiding the device in circular motions while the roller massage attachment firms the skin. There are also soft, normal, pore-focused, and exfoliation brush attachments for the type of treatment you prefer. 

In addition, you can also use the machine as a makeup remover and face massager throughout the day.

For the days you can’t be bothered to use a gua sha tool, NuFACE’s toning device offers the same debloating effects you seek but with additional capabilities. The facial gadget uses microcurrents to help tackle fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness and elasticity.

They instruct you to use the NUFACE Gel Primer beforehand and glide it gently in upward motions from your neck to forehead. It may even address uneven skin texture for a smoother complexion.

The “multitasking” device combines microcurrent, red-light therapy, vibrating facial massage, and therapeutic warmth for healthier skin. According to Solawave, each device setting allows you to feel “zero pain,” unlike other facial treatments that cause stinging sensations.

The Los Angeles brand advises users to use their Renew Complex Serum before utilizing the wand for the skin restoration product to work three times better than when applied alone.

DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro

You may have seen this mask of versions of it on Hollywood celebrities’ social media accounts, from Chrissy Teigen to Victoria Beckham and from Paris Hilton to Kim Kardashian. But what does it do? LED masks can work by stimulating skin cells for collagen production, killing bacteria, and strengthening the skin. 

In dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross’ award-winning skincare brand’s FaceWare Pro, you can choose from red, blue, or a combination of both LED lights for the desired effect. Red light stimulates collagen production, while blue can destroy bacteria. When both are combined, the light chips can target wrinkles and blemishes.

If you frequent the dermatologist for micro-needling, you may have thought it’s a procedure only professionals can perform. However, South African brand Environ has developed an easy and “pain-free” way to conduct the complexion-enhancing treatment at home.

The instrument was designed by reconstructive surgeon Dr. Des Fernandes, Environ’s founder and scientific director. The roller head is embedded with 0.1 mm of stainless steel micro-needles for the face and neck areas. Reducing fine lines isn’t the only possible benefit of the skincare step, but it may also repair sun damage and lessen the appearance of scars.
