What it does: A blue and red light therapy mask for clearer, smoother skin.

If you’re looking for an at-home solution for acne, then this mask is about to become your new best friend. The mask uses blue light therapy that targets acne-inducing bacteria as well as red light therapy to tackle inflammation. It also helps encourage skin cell renewal, which will diminish the appearance of scars. Each mask comes with one 30-treatment activator (each treatment lasts 10 minutes), which means once you’ve done 30 treatments, you’ll need to buy a new mask activator,  $15. It’s 100% chemical free and UV free so it won’t harm your skin.  Plus, at just $35, this is the most affordable at-home acne treatment we’ve found.

7. FOR THE BEAUTY LOVER: ZIIP Beauty ZIIP Device And Golden Gel, $495.

ZIIP

What it does: Sculpt, tone, and tighten.

This handheld device delivers nano currents to tighten and sculpt your face for a more youthful appearance. It uses small electronic vibrations, which pass current through the skin to stimulate the creation of elastin and collagen. It can also be used to combat melasma and hyperpigmentation by lowering the overactive production of melanin (what gives your skin color). And it works miracles on dark undereye bags and wrinkles. It’s really easy to use too, you just download the Zipp App, choose your program and then it’s delivered to the device via Bluetooth. There are seven programs in total; each address a different skin issue, for instance, the total clearing program will help combat blemishes. While its high price point is an undeniable splurge, it could work out more cost effective than just two in-office treatments. For more deets check out our full review.

8. FOR INFLAMMATION AND TIRED EYES: Mount Lai Rose Quart Gua Sha Facial Lifting Tool, $28

What it does: A facial massage tool that reduces stress and inflammation.

A Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese tool that’s designed to release stagnant energy that builds up and causes inflammation. The process of using the facial tool boosts lymphatic drainage, which removes skin aggravating toxins from your skin. Plus, rose quartz is also believed to be a healer for the skin and is used to reduce stress, which can trigger dry skin, breakouts, and rosacea.  It can also increase the absorption of your other skincare products – major bonus. We like to prep our skin with a serum before we use the tool, then once you’ve got the gua sha technique on lockdown, it’s really quick and easy to use.
