Modern lifesavers: game-changing hi-tech skincare brands
Let’s face it, taking care of your skin is a huge commitment. Trying out all these products and formulas just to have your skin backlashing at you until you finally find the right combo that makes your face glow. If you’re lucky enough, you now have a skincare routine (yay!); so, what if I told you that you could boost that same routine for it to work better and deliver even greater results? No, I’m not crazy. I just think you’re missing some tech tools in your life.
We see these big innovations everywhere, from cars to phones even to vacuums; you can find technology all around us. It makes our lives easier, more dynamic and certainly more exciting. So, when beauty brands decide to enter the tech world, you just know something thrilling is going to happen.
For some time now, we’ve been tracking the most innovative and helpful skincare brands with tools thought to enhance any routine in the complex road of achieving (and maintaining) your best skin. Let’s check them out!
A no brainer when it comes to hi-tech skincare products. Foreo has won over thousands of fans ever since their best-selling LUNA cleanser brush was first launched. It was then followed by the ISSA vibrating toothbrush making this brand famous for creating innovative skincare solutions for common problems. Their latest winner? A second-generation masking device with sonic pulsations, full-spectrum LED light therapy and temperature variation for a complete spa experience in under 3 minutes. Foreo is clearly the hi-tech skincare boss.
Another beloved brand for skincare fanatics. Clarisonic is famous for its full range of hi-tech cleansing devices. With interchangeable brush heads, each “Mia” device has a specific function depending on your needs. Starting with Mia Prima, this brush removes oil, makeup and dirt that collects throughout the day while giving a soft exfoliation for evening the skin. Next we find the Mia Smart, a more complex hi-tech tool. This device does it all: deep cleanse, exfoliate, firm the skin and even blend makeup. Keep the magic coming!

“Fitness for your face” is their statement, and as we all know, gravity tends to work its way through the skin with the passing of years.
NuFace Trinity was created as an advanced facial toning device that smooths and tones sagging skin, and improves the look of fine lines. Much as a large specialized machine would do, this unique compact tool delivers results under 5 minutes a day. This hi-tech device offers interchangeable heads for each need, even one with red light therapy to increase cell turnover. In addition, a much smaller device for targeting lines and one for the body are also best-sellers.
Popular among Hollywood celebrities, Nurse Jamie offers a range of skincare products from potent serums to masks to hi-tech beauty tools. We’ll focus on the lather. As a registered nurse, Jamie is committed to find innovative solutions that transform the skin no matter your age. Her tools include the Uplift Facial Massaging Beauty Roller, a device made to mimic an at-home facial from her praised Beauty Park Medical Spa in Santa Monica. Another favorite is the age defying pillow with an adorable name and unique shape: Beauty Bear, to prevent wrinkles from forming while you sleep. Time to give your Teddy a break!

Don’t be scared of this next product, because it is totally a game changer. GloPro is the most popular device among the Beauty Bio brand, and it’s described as a “Microneedling Rejuvenation Tool”. Now if you’re like me, even the mention of needles makes you cringe, but don’t panic, this at-home skincare treatment is completely pain free. Made from teeny tiny needles, the GloPro offers different attachments to target specific parts of the face and body. This way, it can work to firm and tighten skin, as it stimulates collagen by penetrating the outer layer of the skin through vibrations. Combine with their cream formulas, and you get the recipe for a glowing skin.

Is this sunscreen worth the hype?
There is 𝗻𝗼 𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗺𝗲𝗻 without 𝘀𝘂𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻. And, the 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝘂𝗻𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗻 is the one that you will wear religiously. Is 𝗜𝗦𝗗𝗜𝗡 𝗘𝗿𝘆𝗳𝗼𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗮 𝗔𝗴𝗲𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝗨𝗹𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 tinted mineral sunscreen worth the hype? #Isdin - ISDIN Eryfotona Ageless Ultralight tinted mineral sunscreen[products]#[FourStars] Pros ☀️ 𝗠𝗶𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗹 sunscreen aka physical blocker, thus broad spectrum ☀️ Contains 𝗶𝗿𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝘅𝗶𝗱𝗲𝘀, though unclear of percent. May provide protection against blue light. ☀️ One of the few tinted moisturizers that blends in well in skin of color. The tint is so homogenous and nice that you can away with not applying foundation after. ☀️ Contains 𝗽𝗵𝗼𝘁𝗼𝗹𝘆𝗮𝘀𝗲, an enzyme, that help repair damage caused by the sun. Not too thick or too thin, apply easily on the skin. ☀️ contains 𝗩𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗻 𝗘, an antioxidant as well as moisturizing Cons 🥴 𝗢𝗶𝗹𝘆, would not recommend for oily skin 😱 $$$ 𝗘𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲, it is definitely a splurge when there are comparable more frugal options out there.
Sensitive Skin Game changer ❄️
What is the product? Avène - Thermal Spring Water Spray How does it work? Thermal Water works by soothing the skin and calming any irritation What are the notable ingredients? Mineral Spring Water What is the price? $18.50CAD Where can you purchase? Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall Pharmacy and online How long have I been using it for? I’ve been using thermal water for over two years, I started off using this product on my body and now still use it on my face What is my experience ? My experience with thermal water has been good, I suffer from eczema on both my body and face. It was hard finding products that wouldn’t irritate or cause a flare up. When that happened this product saved my skin and soothed it. At first I was not exactly sure how water would help my skin, but after doing research thermal waters are meant to have healing properties for the body and skin. What are my thoughts? This product is nothing short of amazing, you are able to use it for multiple areas and it lasts so long. The mist is super fine which makes it perfect for spraying on large or small spots, and pressing into the skin similar to how you apply a toner. Would I recommend to a friend? I would absolutely recommend this product to a friend or family or even someone looking to help soothe their skin but who doesn’t want to break the bank!! My overall rating? 5/5 Would I repurchase? I have and will continue to repurchase this product until I find something that exceeds how amazing this is! #CheriePartner
🤦🏻♀️Hyperpigmentation Around The Mouth🙅🏻♀️
You have got great skin. But the one thing that stops you from stepping out naturally without any makeup is the dark skin around your mouth. Is this true? You have tried everything from DIYs to skin lightening creams. But the pigmentation around your mouth has remained your stubborn friend, right Why Is The Skin Around My Mouth Dark? 1. Hyperpigmentation 2. Weather Conditions Sun exposure and darkening of the skin. In very cold weather, if you lick your lips and the area around it too often, it can discolour the skin and make it look darker How Do You Get Rid Of Hyperpigmentation Around The Mouth? 1. Exfoliate If you exfoliate the area around your mouth regularly with a gentle exfoliator, it can remove dead cells and help to lighten the skin. Opt for a chemical exfoliant as it will not scrape the skin which in turn may worsen the condition. 2. OTC Skin-Brightening Creams Skin brightening creams can be effective in reducing the dark area around the mouth. Look for ingredients such as glabridin (a licorice extract), kojic acid, vitamin C, grape seed extract, azelaic acid , arbutin, curcumin or niacinamide, These block the production of tyrosinase which is needed by the skin to make melanin. 3. Acid Peels Your dermatologist may use a salicylic acid or glycolic acid peel to treat the dark skin around your mouth. However, these peels do not offer a permanent solution and the pigmentation can return. These peels penetrate deep into the skin to repair the damaged cells. Post treatment precautions like staying out of the sun, applying sunscreen and protecting the skin can make the effect of the peels last longer 6. Natural Remedies You can also use natural remedies to treat the dark skin around your mouth. Most of these natural ingredients can be found in your kitchen. Unless you have an allergy to any of these, you can try using them to get rid of the pigmented skin. ￼Exfoliate with Papaya Papaya has fruit acids known as alpha-hydroxy acids, which is a chemical exfoliantAHAs are used for dry skin and to anti-age, and works to improve skin by removing the top layers of the skin through weakening the lipids that bond them together, thus removing dull and dead skin cells and revealing healthy skin cells. ￼Soothe Skin and Reduce Spots with Almond Oil The presence of Vitamin E and niacin help with hyperpigmentation and improving skin tone,” she says. Because sweet almond oil is non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog your pores) you can add it to your nightly routine as a makeup remover or moisturizer to help protect the skin barrier. ￼Reverse Photo Damage with Tomatoes Tomatoes are naturally rich in lycopene, which has multiple health benefits, including sun protection ￼Brighten with Yogurt breaks down dead skin cells thanks to lactic acid, which is found naturally in dairy products. Using a yogurt with cow’s milk could be effective in calming the skin, since it has lactic acid. Lactic acid is an AHA, which improves discoloration and age spots
