Whether you’re looking to help clear blemishes, smooth wrinkles, or firm your skin: The combination of results-oriented skin care and new, high-tech skin care tools (hello, red-light masks, vibrating rollers, and microcurrent devices) can make a significant difference in how skin looks and feels. Even lower-tech classics—like dry brushing (goop’s favorite body-skin-exfoliating tool ever), gua sha tools, jade rollers, and good old face massage—can be incredibly powerful.
Many skin-care tools are based in tech that started in the dermatologist’s office: Red and blue light, vibration, and electrical stimulation treatment devices all have counterparts in the medical arena, and the idea is not to replicate those treatments exactly (many in-office treatments are too intense to do at home safely) but for the at-home versions to harness the power of treating skin daily or weekly to deliver results on their own or to build on results from in-office procedures.
These goop bestsellers—from a dry brush that works as a skin exfoliator tool to a blemish-calming red-light mask and a sculpting nanocurrent device—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. Here’s a guide to our favorite high-tech skin-care tools.
