Looking for cool, new beauty gadgets to add to your holiday wish list? Keep reading. Each of these at-home beauty devices were inspired by the latest skincare technology used by top dermatologists and facialists on the regular-so you know they’re legit. Put them in your shopping cart-or drop a hint to your mom that you want one-to get gorgeous, glowing skin ASAP!
The Collagen Builder
Similar to pro microneedling tools used by derms, GloPRO is covered in tiny needles that create superficial, painless punctures in the skin when rolled back and forth. These wounds prompt production of collagen and elastin (proteins that keep skin plump and firm) as the skin heals, which can result in smaller pores, improved texture, and fewer lines with continued use.
Behind the mask: 100 red and 62 blue LED lights that work together to create your most epic skin. “LED is the ultimate do-it-all ingredient,” says derm Dennis Gross, MD, the mask’s creator. “The skin has receptors for LED, just like it does for other topical ingredients, such as vitamin C and retinol. This allows the blue lights to control excess sebum and acne-causing bacteria effectively and the red lights to synthesize collagen, fade dark spots, and reduce inflammation.”
The Cleansing Hero
Ready to amp up your end-of-day routine? The Clarisonic Mia Smart is clinically proven to remove long-wear makeup 89 percent better than a wipe and to cleanse six times better than your hands alone, says derm Doris Day, MD. The magic lies in a newly designed brush head (the soft elastic bristles along the perimeter remove impurities more effectively) and patented sonic technology. When the brush head comes into contact with water and your cleanser, the movement of its bristles creates tiny bubbles that gently dis- lodge dirt, makeup, and excess oil from pores. There’s alsoa compatible app that allows you to customize your cleansing routine (e.g., time and intensity) based on your skin goals.
The Skin Energizer
Inspired by the electrical facials loved by celebs and influencers, the ZIIP pushes tiny nano and microcurrents into the skin via a set of charged discs. These currents have the ability to boost your skin cells’ ATP, their main energy source, which drives everything from collagen production to tissue healing. Just slather on the special conductive gel and sync the device with the ZIIP app on your phone to unlock seven targeted treatments (think: pigment control, eye de-puffing) guided by ZIIP co-creator and electrical aesthetician Melanie Simon. The key to seeing results? Consistency. Use the ZIIP three times a week because skin responds best when stimulated continually.
The Mask Enhancer
Nope, it’s not a pair of headphones. Placed on your cheeks over one of three specially formulated sheet masks, the GloPulse headset treats your skin to a 20-minute dose of galvanic current that ups the mask’s efficacy. “Galvanic current uses positive and negative ions to stimulate blood circulation and help the active ingredients in the sheet masks better penetrate your skin,” says celeb facialist Georgia Louise, creator of GloPulse. In addition to specific actives, each sheet mask is infused with ionizable essence thatis compatible with the headset (other sheet masks won’t work) to create a glow-boosting electric field on skin.
The Super Massager
This sleek number from Madonna’s skincare line is top dog in the facial-roller world. The dual-motion rollerballs grip facial contours to melt away tension and encourage lymphatic drainage to de-puff, and they’re made of black-body carbon, whichemits gentle “far infrared” rays (you’ll feel them as soft, radiant heat) for deeper rejuvenation. “Far infrared energy has been shownto enhance blood flow and speed wound healing in the skin,” says derm Joshua Zeichner, MD. Some studies have shown that frequent exposure to far infrared can even increase collagen in the skin. Use daily before your serum and moisturizer. (The rollers grip clean, dry skin best.)
