5 Technologies that are Disrupting the Beauty Industry

LED Light-therapy

Utilizing wavelengths of natural red and infrared light, the device boosts blood flow for an instant glow and also stimulates collagen production to help smooth wrinkles. LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a proven anti-ageing method and is often used as a step in professional facials. LED gives skin cells the ability to re-produce collagen and elastin, which improves uneven skin tone, reducing pores size and brightening the skin. This therapy is good for all skin types and it is safe for the eyes.

Teeth whitening kit

Thanks to advanced technology, dental cosmetics are the most sought out product because of its accessibility and affordability. For a whiter smile, it’s going to take more than just your fluoride toothpaste; you need teeth whitening strips or gels. Applied overnight, the ingredients of these teeth whitening kits remove hard stains off your teeth and make them pearly white again.

Mini exfoliation tool

Cleaning your face with either makeup wipes or makeup remover is essential to remove makeup, oil and dirt particles that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. A next-level cleansing facial tool is a soft mechanical brush that eliminates bacteria much more efficiently than human hands washing faces. Waterproof for use in the shower or bath, this tool can be used on all skin types.

Electronic Foot File

This device is the epitome of your at-home spa treatment. This electric foot file will dry buff and smooth out the heels evenly and softens at the same time. You can remove dead skin, hard skin, wrinkles and calluses on feet easily. These foot files can also be portable and convenient for travel, and easy to detach for cleaning. You’re not only getting prettier feet but healthier ones as well!

Flatiron Hair Therapy

A hair straightener that actually leaks out heat-protective silicone-based conditioners into the hair, preventing frizz. Or one that is oil-infused, where the oil vapor seeps through steam to condition your hair while it is being straightened. Or another that has sensor technology that lowers the heat when it’s not being used and then brings it back up as soon as it’s touched. So. Many. Choices.
