The Top 3 Best At Home Skincare Devices
Written by Kerry Benjamin
My celebrity clients are busy; have demanding careers and travel almost constantly. They need amazing skin wherever they are in the world because they are often in front of a camera and it’s my job to make sure they can look great regardless of stress, late nights, and long flights.
So what’s their secret when they are on go?
Well, this secret is not really a secret - it’s all about having the right skincare device to use. These skincare gadgets have evolved dramatically within the last 5-10 years and they are amazing for treating fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scars and acne. I suggest all my clients invest in one or two devices that address their personal issues and to help you find out what’s right for you I made you a quick guide below.
1. The LED
LED stands for Light emitting diode (LED). The device emits specific wavelengths of light that provide a safe method of cell renewal. It’s a great way to treat a wide range of concerns and it’s also almost impossible to overdo the treatment since these devices emit a very low wavelength.
Why You Need It: Blue light is Best for treating acne and and infrared or red for boosting collagen. Ideal for those who want to treat wrinkles as well as rosacea, scars, eczema, burns and psoriasis.
Where to Get it: Lightstim
Also known as the electric facial, microcurrent therapy works by sending small electric currents in various wavelengths to stimulate facial and neck muscles that become lax as we age. Microcurrent therapy was created to complement Botox injections and does not directly act on muscles; rather, it binds to neurotransmitters, preventing them to signal the muscles to contract.
Why You Need It: Microcurrent is best for aging or sagging skin. It rebuilds and restores the curves that define the nose, jawline, cheekbones and chin so the face won’t look flat or droopy.

3. Cleansing Brush
A handheld, deep-cleansing facial brush can get your skin up to 6x cleaner than when you only use your fingers. The brush heads on these devices oscillate up to 300 movements per second to deep clean and dislodge dead skin cells, oils and even makeup, while also promoting microcirculation to promote cell turnover.
Why You Need It: Everyone needs clean skin to avoid build-up, acne and premature aging from environmental pollutants. It’s ideal for all skin types including dry, normal, combination, oily and acne prone.
