CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask
I love light therapy masks, and this is my current favourite. Its LED bulbs deliver red light along with infrared light which works to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. It sounds a bit unlikely – until you look into ‘photobiomodulation’. That’s the technical name for low-level light therapy, the sort that doesn’t generate heat in the skin, and it is well-proven to encourage the skin to remodel itself from the inside out. That means improving the hydration of the skin, stimulating the growth of new supportive collagen and elastin, and bringing down inflammation, which helps to reduce the angry redness in both spots and rosacea.
Obviously, the power output of this home-use mask isn’t as high as you’d get from a professional-quality light canopy in a salon, but if you wear it for 10 minutes five times a week, you will start to see results after a few weeks. What sort of results? Firmer, smoother, tighter skin, according to people who have tried it. And from the clinical trials that the product boasts, the product achieved a 35 per cent reduction in wrinkles in four weeks.
As well as these benefits, I love the fact that this mask is flexible. That means it lies flat and is easy to pack for travelling. It also has a portable power-pack, meaning that you’re not tethered to the nearest electrical socket while you’re wearing it. I haven’t yet opened the door to the postman while wearing it, but it’s surely only a matter of time.
