We often get asked what is the ULTIMATE ONE tool to purchase for at home use. The answer is that each of them are completely different and provide a different means of getting results. These methods are often lower in cost than paying for a round of injections but to make sure they work, you’ll need to be consistent and patient. You should also keep in mind that many alternative results won’t match that of those achieved with needles. These are the methods that I have personally been using to keep on top of my A-game.
1. Pure Lift
If you don't know yet, you're about to find out why the Pure Lift is a great at home addition to your skincare routine. Had enough of us talking about it? We can't stop.
Think lifted, more youthful skin, without a drop of injectables in sight.
Check out this study that was conducted! This study had 30 women who concluded that microcurrent devices worked best on the forehead area. However, microcurrent devices are often used across the cheeks, jawline, and neck area.
What can you get out of the Pure Lift? Improved muscle tone, reduced fine lines and depth of wrinkles, and firmer skin. If you like that tightened, lifted look then the Pure Lift device can do that for you instantly. It’s not permanent, but with long-term use, you can prolong the benefits and a more youthful appearance.
Another plus is that your skin will absorb serums, oils, and other skincare products on a much deeper level than before.
2. Cryo Sticks
The Biologique Recherche Cryo Sticks are designed with medical-grade stainless steel to guarantee the highest amount of thermal energy. The ergonomic shape allows you to work effectively on every area of the face from the forehead and cheeks to the eyes. Store the sticks in the refrigerator or in nice for maximum thermal energy. The cold sensation is picked up by receptors in the skin, stimulating nerve cells and providing a tightening effect. With the application, your skin will appear soothed and depuffed. It will also stimulate collagen production and work products into the skin. It will also quickly lower the skin's temperature while promoting vasoconstriction and limiting vasodilation. Redness eventually vanishes due to the regulation of dermal blood circulation as the sticks make contact with the skin. Cold also has a decongestant, firming, and draining effect in addition to its relieving properties. You can also place them over the eyes to instantly de-puff and awake the skin. When done regularly, it can even help to contour and shape your facial muscles and keep that hold in place. We love using it with our Biologique Recherche milk cleansers, iS Clinical Hydra Intensive Cooling Masque or the Cream Cleanser. You can also use it with your favourite masks as well.
3. Gua Sha
Gua Sha is one of the best ways to release the blockages caused by stress, release the tension and open up the pathways to really move the lymph.
Help release excess lymph fluid that accumulates in our face and neck (of course the body is included). Over time, this fluid accumulation, causes sagging around our eyes, cheeks, a longer chin, folds in front of the ears and on the neck, a double chin and more. It will show up as puffiness as first, but over time, the weight of the fluid places stress on the tissues and stretches them. This excess fluid crowds out space for fresh nutrients and oxygen which is needed for optimal functioning skin. Stagnation tends to cause blemishes and/or acne. With Gua Sha we want to sculpt but also clear away oil and/or bacteria along with lymph fluid.
4. Jade Roller
Rollers can be a great substitute for those who struggle to get their Gua Sha sessions in during the week. When using a roller, intentionally you will be able to grab the lymph fluid from under the skin's surface and move it. This fluid collects waste product and destroyed bacteria so it is important to not let it remain stagnant. All you have to do is use this tool in an intentional way, always up and towards the temples, a drainage point! Easy peasy!
5. Biologique Recherche Gant de Massage Visage
A double-sided silicone massage glove that is designed to be used on the face with the milk cleansers from Biologique Recherche . One side is covered in soft spikes for massaging and the other in hard spikes for exfoliating. This tool is SO easy to use to promote stimulation and oxygen to the skin. The end result? Glowing skin.
6. LED Light Therpay
With at-home skin treatments being the “new” normal, people are turning to things like LED skin therapy to target many, if not all, of their skincare woes. These skin treatments actually work and are totally safe—in fact, some are even FDA-cleared (like the Celluma).
You can heal existing blemishes while preventing new ones from forming. For just three minutes per day, you can kill the acne-causing bacteria lying beneath the skin, leading to a clearer and healthier complexion after each use.
The best part about light therapy is that this is non-invasive. It promotes clear, healthy and strong skin and treats redness, breakouts, dullness and laxity. Not to mention the treatment itself is relaxing, calming and restorative! Whether you're self-isolating, working from home or not able to visit Myüz as frequently as you'd like, LED is a great way to yield professional results at home.
