The technology industry is constantly evolving, and with it, the ways we can improve our everyday lives. It’s therefore no surprise that the beauty industry has followed suit, not only with cutting-edge formulations but high-tech gadgets designed to make your daily skincare routines easier and complement in-salon visits. Without ado, here are five futuristic gadgets that will revolutionise your beauty routine today:

1. LED light mask

Supplement your in-salon LED light therapy treatments with the Permaderm Illumask Pro. The lightweight device is non-invasive, painless, and features a variety of settings to alleviate blemishes and boost collagen production. Use twice a day, and you might just notice smoother, clearer skin. 

2. Heated lash curler

For those desiring longer, more luscious lashes or a break between lash extensions, the Manicare heated lash curler achieves lifted lashes without pulling or damaging. Suitable for natural and false lashes, the device utilises silicone pads heated to a safe temperature to gently curl your lashes in a matter of seconds. After use, apply mascara for a final touch. It’s as easy as that — and without the pain and awkwardness that’s often associated with a traditional curler. 

3. Sonic cleanser 

Take your skincare to the next level with your favourite foaming or gel cleanser and the Foreo Luna 3. The device utilises tiny silicone bristles and sonic vibrations to deeply cleanse pores and remove dirt, oil, and SPF buildup. With a clearer face, not only will your skincare penetrate your face better, but it’ll be easier to manage oily and congestion prone skin. 

4. Microcurrent massager

Be prepared for a strange sensation, but don’t worry, you’ll stay for the results. The Nuface Trinity device utilises gentle microcurrents to stimulate the muscle and skin tissue, tightening and sculpting the face. While the device’s results aren’t permanent, daily use will help sustain a more defined and contoured face. And if you’re unsure about investing in this gadget, we recommend requesting to incorporate the device into an in-store Mecca facial so you can see the results for yourself. 

5. Smoothing brush 

Devised by a team of engineers, there’s no doubt that the Dyson Airwrap revolutionised the hair game with its aerodynamic technology to smooth and curl hair with air, not extreme heat. And the Dyson Airwrap’s Firm smoothing brush attachment is a must-try gadget to tame unruly, frizzy hair for a sleeker, straighter look, all without compromising the intensity of your hair. Getting a salon blowout at home has never been easier.
