The top beauty gadgets for flawless skin in 2022

Have you ever thought about incorporating tech into your beauty routine? As the world of technology advances, so do the beauty gadgets that promise to keep our skin looking plump and healthy. From light therapy to microcurrent devices and personalized face care systems. Check out the top beauty devices you can get your smooth hands on to elevate your face care routine.

1. Light up that skin (literally)

We use all kinds of masks to treat our skin, from sheets to rubbery peel off and hardening clay masks. A special category of masks is the techy one with LED masks to treat a plethora of conditions. The masks use different wavelengths of light to battle redness, wrinkles, zits and dull skin to name a few things.

You might have seen the masks being paraded on Instagram bij different celebrities, who are mostly enamored by the pretty pricey Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, you could try Skin Gym’s Wrinklit LED Mask to light yourself to a younger looking complexion.

2. Mist of goodness

This next gadget has a different approach to nourishing your skin. Instead of light, Droplette uses a mist to get your skin looking more plump and youthful. The idea is that most of the creams and serums you use just sit on top of your skin, because the molecules are too big to penetrate the skin barrier. Droplette promises to transform the active ingredients you need for healthy looking skin into a micro-mist, with particles small enough enough to reach the deeper layers of your skin. The gadget works with capsules containing collagen, retinol or glycolic acid and is actually backed by NASA.

3. Customized retinol care

If you’re into skincare then you’ve probably heard about the magical antioxidant Retinol, AKA vitamin A, that’s supposed to give your skin a real boost. Every article about retinol unfortunately also urges you to be careful with it. Using too much could cause breakouts and you should watch out when mixing it with other ingredients.

So how do you know how much retinol is right for you? Well that’s where the Opulus Beauty Labs Retinol+ Starter System comes in. It’s a personalized beauty gadget that helps you use the right amount for your skin. So no worries there. What’s more is that their patent-pending formula preserves key ingredients until the moment of application, where a lot of traditional skin care creams and serums lose their potency over time.

4. Shocking skin

People are prepared to do a lot of things when it comes to regaining and maintaining a youthful appearance, but are you willing to literally shock your face? If so, you should check out the NuFace Trinity device. The gadget stimulates your face with microcurrent to tone, lift and contour the facial muscles and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Don’t worry we’ve tried microcurrent therapy and it didn’t actually hurt.

5. A needle in a stack of skin cells

If shocking your skin sounded scary, what do you think about a bunch of needles stabbing it? Well that’s exactly what happens with microneedling, but as the name suggests it’s done with very small needles. Face Gym’s Face Shot is a microneedling device that uses stainless steel needles to boost your skin’s repair process. It then nourishes the skin with ampoules of glycolic acid and the result should be smoother skin, clearer pores, less wrinkles and diminished hyperpigmentation. Sounds good right? You only have to be brave enough to face the needles.

Another way tech could help out with your daily routine is by using it to apply makeup. Always struggling with winged eyeliner? This TikTok filter by Grace Choi projects a grid on your face, so you know exactly where to draw the lines.
