When it comes to beauty trends and products, it can be really tricky for a girl to keep up! If you feel like your beauty cabinet is out of date or if you’ve never tried using a laser on your face, you and your skin are missing out!
Some incredible products have been invented that make it easier for you to care for and love your skin. Plus, they can turn an otherwise boring and predictable skincare routine into an exciting experience that you actually look forward to every day.
So, without further ado, here are my favorite hi-tec beauty trends that you absolutely need to try ASAP!
At-Home Laser Hair Removal. Ok, I admit, home hair removal products have been around for a long time, but they have recently become much more hi-tec and effective than they ever were before. My current favorite: the TRIA Hair Removal Laser. It is not only exceptionally user-friendly, but it is also capable of removing hair twice as fast as older models.
If you’re a little wary about spending your hard-earned bucks on a product that literally zaps you with a laser, don’t worry. It is perfectly safe and is the only hair removal laser for home use that has been FDA-approved. I promise, incinerating your hair is a lot more fun (and less painful) than it sounds! PSA: some people DO experience irritation, so I am not saying this product is without risk – please do your research and ask questions (you can always call my estheticians) before making the decision to use it.
But ladies, if you’re tired of painful waxing sessions or shaving every single day, give this laser a try. After just two uses, your hair could be reduced by up to 70%! What’s not to love about that?
Laser Wrinkle Correction. Laser technology seems to be all the rave in beauty trends, and it’s easy to see why. Lasers are highly effective, surprisingly gentle, and yield impressive results.
One of the hottest beauty trends currently being used in both salons and at-home settings is laser wrinkle correction. Scientists have figured out how to harness the power of laser light to target signs of aging, renew skin cells and facilitate the body’s natural healing process. Thank you, scientists!
For a wrinkle-reducing laser product that is designed for all-over face use, it doesn’t get much better than the TRIA Age-Defying Laser. It has the same technology that is used by medical professionals and tightens up stretched-out skin tissue.
It works by stimulating production of the skin’s natural collagen and elastin with targeted beams of laser light. Collagen plumps the skin and minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, while elastin goes to work tightening up stretched out skin.
When combined, these two proteins can slow down the natural aging process and give your skin a youthful, toned appearance. What more could a girl ask for?
For best results, make sure you use this product only after you have thoroughly cleansed and primed your face. Doing so will help the gadget slide easily across your skin. Once you have treated your entire face with the age-defying laser, soothe and nourish the skin with finishing serum.
Microcurrent Stimulation Therapy is frequently used in high-end spas to stimulate, tighten and retrain the muscles of the face. While you can certainly visit a spa every time you feel like your face muscles need a lift, I prefer to bring the spa technology home where I can use it whenever I want.
I am in love with the NuFACE Trinity device because it is ergonomically-friendly and I can literally feel it working to retrain my muscles and give my face a natural, youthful lift. I’m confident you’ll love it too once you give it a try.
Hi-Tech Cleansing Devices. No, that’s not a typo. Hi-tech facial cleansing is now a thing, and once you get over how weird that sounds, you’re going to learn to love it. I promise.
So, why are beauty-conscious people everywhere using battery-powered products to cleanse their faces? It turns out that hi-tech facial cleansers can deliver a variety of benefits, including cleaning away makeup and dirt, exfoliating, and encouraging blood flow to the skin.
My go-to facial cleansing device is the Foreo Luna 2. It comes with various brush types that are perfect for different kinds of skin. It’s also super cute and brightly colored, so of course I adore it.
Keep in mind that you need to be gentle when using these devices. After all, you’re not trying to brush off your skin (yikes!), just gently whisking away impurities and stimulating blood flow to the area. If you use these devices too frequently (more than twice a day) or too harshly, your skin could become damaged as a result. Stick to your regimen and don’t get overenthusiastic!
Nighttime is the perfect time to use a face brush, since your skin has accumulated lots of dirt, impurities and bacteria throughout the day. Face brushing typically isn’t necessary in the morning, since your face isn’t exposed to many contaminants while you sleep.
Microdermabrasion isn’t actually new technology, but because it fell out of the limelight for a while and is now making a new, fresh-faced appearance, I’m including it on my list of hi-tec beauty trends.
In case you’ve forgotten how microdermabrasion works (and how awesome it is), allow me to refresh your memory. Microdermabrasion gently and effectively resurfaces the skin, eliminating dead cells that clutter the skin’s surface and can make it look dull and old.
One of the first things I notice after using a microdermabrasion product like the PMD Personal Microderm Device in Pink is how fresh and youthful my skin looks and feels after just one session.
Microdermabrasion can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne and dreaded acne scars. It is even effective at reducing the appearance of stretch marks! Let’s face it, no matter how many times you refer to them as your “tiger stripes”, you will never be in love with your stretch marks. So why not minimize them?
As with facial cleansing devices, it is important to be gentle when using your microdermabrasion tool. Remember, your skin is not a board that needs sanding down. Instead, think of microdermabrasion as a gentle, long-term process that can help you shed your old skin to reveal the new skin underneath.
There are many more hi-tec beauty trends making the rounds, but the above list includes some of my favorite, tried-and-true options. Choose one to try this weekend, or give them all a try for the most dramatic and beautiful results!
