Purifying LED Mask
“I’ve always thought that taking care of my skin was slathering moisturizers and serums on my face. After trying all the products the drugstore has to offer, I’d consider myself “skin-care-obsessed”. That’s great and all, but my eyes have been opened to an entirely different way to nix fine lines and obliterate acne.
LED light masks: The technology uses light therapy to kill pimple-causing bacteria and reverse the signs of aging. These used to only be available at dermatologists’ offices!! Now, this tech have been made accessible to those of us who want to treat our zits while watching Netflix instead of going all the way to the clinic (which is verryyy expensive)!
Depending on what your skin needs, there are different types of light that can be used to improve your facial care routine. “Red light therapy activates collagen production to reduce visible signs of aging and to restore healthy, glowing skin,” says Dr. Gross, who also said that it can be used to reduce age spots, sun damage, and redness, and promote skin healing. “In contrary, blue light is used to kill acne-causing bacteria to improve the skin’s clarity and prevent future breakouts.”
The mask includes both those red and blue lights we were talking about, which works to target acne and signs of aging at the same time. As someone who regularly uses this mask at her desk, I can attest to the fact that it is amazing, and—no joke—can make skin look brighter with repeated use.
