NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device, £167, www.lookfantastic.com
Microcurrent facials continue to be a buzz word in the beauty biz – they’re often known as ‘natural face lifts’ – and who doesn’t want that?! But this clever number means you can have one without even leaving your home. Using microcurrent technology, it emits low-voltage electrical currents to mirror your body’s own natural currents. So, what does this mean? More collagen and elastin is produced, while skin is also repaired. It visibly ‘lifts’ skin, all while minimising wrinkles and promoting a more youthful complexion.
Temple Spa Clean Up Your Act, Sonic Wave Cleansing Brush, £50, www.templespa.com
This dual-function facial brush will up your cleansing game in an instance. Using 8000 sonic pulsations per minute, it works to seriously clean your skin, removing an impressive 95% of dirt, make-up, impurities and excess oil. Not stopping there, its rejuvenation function sends low frequency sonic waves deep into skin, which encourages cell regeneration and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Phew!
