Modern lifesavers: game-changing hi-tech skincare brands
Jun. 28, 2020
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.

Tips from a derm for exercise induced acne
With a new year comes resolutions, many involving healthier lifestyles and exercise. So why let exercise induced acne hold you back from achieving these healthier choices. Exercising can cause excessive sweating-leading to increased oils, dirt, friction, and even bacteria on your skin leading to acne. This can manifest as facial or truncal acne (think backne), often known as acne mechanica or folliculitis. Cleansing properly is incredibly important for preventing exercise induced acne. It’s important to remove all makeup prior to working out. Gently shower with lukewarm water immediately after sweating. If a shower is not available, reach for a cleansing wipe. Clean, loose-fitting moisture wicking attire is key. This helps prevent friction and additional bacteria and sweat from dirty clothing. In addition to wiping down all gym equipment, don’t forget about the stuff that hits your skin regularly such as headphones, watches, and headbands. Most importantly, don’t forget sunscreen and gentle moisturizers.

What it means to blowdry down the hair cuticle!
Let’s simplify what it means when a hairstylist says to blow dry down the hair cuticle: When you think of your hair, think of the shingles on a roof. They’re all laying down but on top of each other. The cuticle of our hair is doing the same! When we blow dry up or at the hair cuticle, it causes all those little shingles to stand up- causing frizz, loss of moisture, and hair damage. When we blow dry down the hair cuticle, all the shingles can lay flat against each other and be the protective barrier that they’re supposed to be. If you’re having trouble with extra frizz or loss of moisture pay attention to the direction that your blow drying. This could make all the difference!
