Innovations in skincare tech are making it easier than ever to maintain a healthy, glowing complexion. For example, French start-up Beautigloo recently unveiled a next-generation beauty cooler at CES 2022; this innovative device delivers ultra-rapid cooling in under five minutes for a host of skincare products, including, masks, applicators and massage tools. It’s set to launch by the end of 2023. Moreover, additional developments in skincare tech – from pH skin sensors and lasers to custom face masks – are also becoming increasingly popular as a way of effortlessly keeping the complexion in optimal condition.
pH skin sensors
Maintaining a healthy skin pH is essential for overall skin health and keeps issues like dryness, inflammation, and acne at bay. Although using a gentle cleanser, toner, and moisturizer is all you need to balance pH, you can take things one step further with a pH sensor. L’Oréal, for example, has teamed up with La Roche-Posay and Epicore Biosystems to create an innovative wearable skin sensor. My Skin Track pH can track your skin pH in real-time thanks to the cutting-edge microfluidics technology that analyzes your sweat – all in less than 15 minutes. Once the sensor generates the results, they’re sent to a companion app that provides personalized tips on how to improve your skin.
Laser treatments have come a long way in the past few years to effectively eliminate unwanted skin imperfections, and rejuvenate and revitalize the complexion. The excel V+ laser, for example, is a cutting-edge treatment used to treat a host of common skin issues, such as, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, spider veins, oversized pores, rosacea, acne, pigmentation, skin tags, stretch marks, broken capillaries, and keratosis. It also stimulates collagen production to improve skin texture and rejuvenate the complexion. The excel V+ laser essentially targets the skin with gentle wavelengths that successfully eradicate any and all skin discoloration. It’s a fast and comfortable treatment that delivers effective results. And, although the treatment does provide long-lasting results, follow-up treatments may also be necessary depending on your unique needs.
Custom face masks
Sheet masks certainly aren’t for everyone – they often don’t fit your face properly and therefore miss key areas. Fortunately, custom face masks are here to eliminate this problem, and provide your skin with tailored treatments. Neutrogena, for instance, recently debuted an intelligent, custom face mask that fits the exact dimensions of your face to a T, while also targeting single areas of your face in need of specific active ingredients. So, for example, your chin may be crying out for hyaluronic acid, whereas your T-zone may be dealing with different issues that can be treated with salicylic acid. Once this information is gathered, your face mask can then be printed according to the unique shape and needs of your face.
Skin technology is undoubtedly evolving at a rapid rate. pH skin sensors, laser technology, and custom face masks are just a few of the latest trends making it easier than ever to maintain a healthy complexion.
