There’s something about new tech that makes my inner child absolutely giddy. Whether it’s a WIFI-connected coffee maker or a programmable computer mouse, customizing and exploring all the features is as fun to me as playing with new toys on Christmas day as a kid. But high-tech gadgets don’t just belong in the kitchen or office – they’re also in my bathroom cabinet and makeup organizer. From LED light therapy to at-home microcurrent treatments, there’s no shortage of high-tech beauty devices on the market. But with so many options to choose from, it can be tough to know which ones are actually worth your time and money. Check out some of these techy tools to modernize your beauty routine.

Lights, massagers, brushes — this is just the tip of the iceberg of beauty technology. There’s even more products if you want to check hot air brushes or at-home IPL hair removal. Welcome to the future!


The name ‘UFO’ might make this product seem strange and mysterious, but there’s actually nothing ‘unidentified’ about it. The UFO is a powerful little device that can turn your regular home beauty routine into a full spa treatment. It features both heating and cooling to properly prep your skin for face masks or prime for makeup, and also includes two forms of light therapy. Whether you’re looking for an anti-aging boost or improved hydration, the UFO can be the Swiss Army Knife of your skincare routine.


DERMAFLASH LUXE+ Advanced Sonic Dermaplaning + Peach Fuzz Removal

Exfoliating scrubs and depilatory creams are so last century. Replace those bottles in your bathroom cabinet with this dermaplaning device. The LUXE+ is popular with aestheticians for its ease of use and noticeable results. It helps you get the most out of your skincare products and makeup by removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz that would otherwise get in the way.



The sheer amount of skincare products available for purchase can make choosing ones to try downright overwhelming. Get rid of the guesswork of sampling new products by instead getting a skincare set made specifically for you. Curology’s bespoke service has changed the game for routine skincare. Forget making a dermatologist appointment for personalized product recommendations, you can sign up for Curology’s free trial from the comfort of your smartphone.


Lightstim for Acne

If you’re dealing with acne as an adult, don’t keep using the same ineffective creams and washes that were on the market when you first dealt with acne as a teenager. LED treatments like the LightStim are an FDA-approved acne treatment, without the side effects and sun sensitivity caused by traditional topical products. This device kills acne-causing bacteria without irritating your skin, and also reduces redness and inflammation.


Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Electric Toothbrush

With a toothbrush like this, you don’t have to worry about the “I’m not mad, just disappointed” lecture from your dentist. Philips Sonicare has a lot of great products, but this one is by far the most high-tech. Not only does it have five different brushing modes to fit your unique oral health needs, but it also charges wirelessly with a sleek glass holder that actually looks good sitting out next to your bathroom sink. My favorite feature is the quadpacer timer that pulses when you need to which area of teeth you’re brushing. Your current toothbrush will look like a stone age tool compared to this one!


NUFACE mini Facial Toning Device

A busy life on the go can make it hard to fit in relaxing spa treatments, so take the spa wherever you go with this portable microcurrent tool. Microcurrents gently stimulate the muscles in your face and neck for an instant tightening and facelift effect. The mini comes with a 2 fluid ounce gel primer, so the whole package can go in your carry-on for flights. With this in your bag, you’ll actually look forward to that layover!

FOREO LUNA 2 Professional

If the words ‘electric exfoliating brush’ bring to mind rough bristles, then you need to upgrade to the LUNA 2. The unique silicone design is much gentler on thin, delicate skin than traditional exfoliating brushes. The LUNA 2 is also 100% waterproof, so you don’t have to worry about the humidity in your shower harming the motor. With 12 customizable intensities and a 450 uses per full charge, the LUNA 2 will easily become the workhorse of your skincare routine.


Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro

Brushes and massagers are nice, but wouldn’t it be more relaxing if you could just treat your whole face at once? This LED treatment mask makes it easy! The blue light setting treats acne-causing bacteria and redness, while the red light stimulates healthy collagen and elastin. Plus, you can use the lights in combination mode for an overall super effective wrinkle-reducing inflammation-calming effect. The mask comes with a removable, adjustable head strap for a comfortable fit, and also features an automatic shutoff.
