4 Devices for Lifting, Sculpting, and Boosting Glow at Home
Even for those once devoted to their facialists and dermatologists, skin care has suddenly become a fully at-home endeavor. Fortunately, there’s some great clean tech out there that really works. These four goop bestsellers are pretty amazing results-wise, not to mention easy to use. Combined with your favorite skin care, they can change the way your skin looks and feels, making it glowier, more lifted, firmer, smoother, clearer, and brighter.
The ZIIP OX
Whether your skin is breakout-prone, combination, sensitive, or dry or you just want to look more lifted and glowy, this nanocurrent device aims to stimulate collagen and elastin to make anyone’s skin look brighter and more supple. Developed by legendary electrical aesthetician Melanie Simon, it comes with a totally clean conductive gel—a nourishing, skin-coddling serum that’s a treatment in and of itself—that you apply generously before using (more on that below). The device is incredibly easy and works with your phone to deliver nine different electrical treatments, each targeting a particular skin concern, like sagging, dullness, or breakouts. You can do it day and night, weekly, or monthly—the results are incredible.
Also developed by Simon, this totally clean conductive gel (a rarity in the category) is cruelty-free and completely plant-based. Massage it on generously before gliding the ZIIP OX across your face and neck to transfer the electrical current into skin. Infused with deeply nourishing ingredients, like skin-plumping glutathione, polyphenol cedar bark extract, and organic glycerin, it’s a beautiful skin-coddling serum on its own.

LED Light: The DrX
This high-tech mask uses red and blue LED light to help minimize lines, clear breakouts, calm redness, and rejuvenate tired skin. Red light stimulates collagen, while blue targets blemishes and future breakouts—a miracle combination for supercharging your complexion. The mask has three settings, and it’s brilliant on all skin types, from oily to sensitive.

Vibration: The Gold Bar
from Jillian Dempsey
World-famous makeup artist Jillian Dempsey discovered this brilliant, face-smoothing gold bar on a job in Japan and immediately started using it on her clients. Made with twenty-four-karat gold, it uses subtle vibrations to make the face appear more sculpted, and it feels amazing, like a firm massage. Dempsey uses it to get her clients ready for the red carpet, but she recommends using it daily for ten to fifteen minutes for optimum results. The effects last for the better part of a day or night.

The SolaWave Wand
This multitasking device delivers four separate treatments for the ultimate at-home facial. It combines microcurrent, red-light therapy, vibrating facial massage, and therapeutic warmth for smoother, softer, rejuvenated, and refreshed skin. It’s made with smart-touch activation (so you place the wand against your face to turn it on and remove it to turn it off), and the tip rotates so that it’s easier to maneuver in hard-to-reach spots. It’s also portable and rechargeable, so you can take it with you anywhere. Use it daily for five minutes for smooth, gorgeous, healthy-looking skin.
