From vibrating brushes designed to give you an at-home microdermal treatment to light-based devices to banish blemishes – the hi-tech skincare market is potentially worth billions.
The following three products are available to buy now:
The Skin Revitaliser: Philips VisaPure Facial Cleansing Brush (£149.99)
This device will take your cleansing routine to the next level with a brush that claims to transform dull skin and clear blemishes. The hand-held brush rotates to buff away all traces of make-up and spot-causing impurities. Use for a few minutes at the end of each day for clear, fresh looking skin.
Salon alternative: Deep-cleansing facials from £120
The Spot Buster: Lustre Pure Light Classic (£249)
Another portable gadget, the Lustre pure light classic uses blue-light therapy to help manage mild to moderate acne on the face. Place the pads on affected areas and the blue light will kill the types of bacteria that cause spots.
Salon alternative: A course of acne treatments at £200 per session
The Hair Remover: Gillet Venus Naked Skin designed by Braun (£449.99)
Helping to break the cycle of hair regrowth, this device uses intense pulsed light against hair follicles to put them in resting mode so that hair doesn’t grow. Use this piece of tech once every two weeks for a maximum of 12 treatments, then use it once every two months to maintain.
Salon alternative: Permanent laser hair removal costs from £1,500
