7 skincare gadgets we swear by

From crystal face rollers to line smoothers, there are now so many beauty devices available that we’re fast becoming our very own at-home skin clinicians. NEWBY HANDS picks seven of the best tools that are easy to use and deliver results

Beauty

THE CRYSTAL EYE MASSAGER Angela Caglia Rosebud Eye Treatment Set

Famous for her rose quartz face rollers, LA aesthetician Angela Caglia brings the same soothing and brightening benefits to the delicate eye area with these dainty eye massagers. Work them over your cream, moving in circles round the eye, or, even better, use them chilled from the refrigerator to help depuff morning eyes, or warmed (place them in a glass of hot water and dry) to release tension at the end of a day spent staring at a screen.

THE FACE SCULPTOR NuFace Trinity All-In-Once Facial Toning Set

Working on the skin, connective tissues and muscles, this easy-to-use device uses FDA-cleared microcurrent technology to redefine the face contours, while also ensuring healthier-looking skin. Expect to see a difference (if just short term) after one use – it’s great pre-event – but make it a regular part of your regimen and you will see how it sculpts your face and features in the longer term.

THE FRIZZ-TAMING BRUSH GHD Glide Professional Hot Brush

For those who invariably wake up with second-day hair (fly-aways, frizz or pouffy ends), this is a game-changer. Heat it up and simply brush it through your hair to give instant smoothness and shine, plus the long and short bristles help give day-after hair some much-needed volume so you don’t end up with straight but flat hair.

THE GUA SHA FACIAL MASSAGER Hayo’u Rose Quartz Beauty Restorer

Blending holistic health and beauty, this classic Chinese treatment uses a hand-held, curved jade or rose quartz massager that you work over skin, muscle and connective tissue. As well as relieving fluid retention, releasing tight tissue and lifting muscles (similar to a face roller), the massager also works on acupressure points to ease headaches or jaw tension.

THE FACE MASSAGER Joanna Czech Facial Massager

For clients who are unable to get to her studios in Dallas and New York, facialist Joanna Czech has devised a tool to provide the same firming and reshaping massage that she does herself, lifting and holding muscles as you work it over jaw, cheeks and brows. To lift the face, roll towards your hairline with the handle up and the two rollers pulled behind; to drain puffiness, flip it round and push the rollers upwards. Even better, use it over a sheet mask to hydrate and lift in one.

THE LED MASK MZ Skin Light-Therapy Golden Facial Treatment Device

Created by Dr Maryam Zamani, this mask truly brings the high-tech world of the doctor’s clinic into your home, and with five different-colored LED lights, it gives you the full rainbow of treatments. Use red light to boost collagen and calm inflammation; blue to neutralize acne bacteria (the best spot treatment); green to reduce the effects of broken capillaries and pigmentation; yellow to soothe redness; and white to calm sensitivity. Use three times a week for up to half an hour.

THE LINE SMOOTHER NuFace FIX Line Smoothing Device Kit

While most microcurrent devices firm up the face, this NuFace addition works to smooth out lines, especially the ‘11s’ between the brows and around the mouth and eyes. Best of all, this is super-simple to use. It has its own serum, which you work into your chosen area for three minutes, five times a week, to soften lines. Over time, fine lines can almost disappear.
