"The consumer is always looking for the best result possible," says Alexia Inge, co-founder and
enhance, heal and tread
co-CEO of Cult Beauty, "and tools take the benefits to new heights." Indeed, consumers are happy
lightly on our dear planet
to invest big in the promise of tauter, smoother skin. When the SpectraLite Pro LED face mask
launched this year, retailers struggled to keep pace with demand, even with a £430 price tag.
In the same price bracket, the FaceGym Pro Xtreem Pulse device can help maintain the benefits of the famed super toning skin workout
beyond the salon. "The tool allows people to keep up their muscle tone and the incredible results they achieve in studio, even when they are
unable to come in," says FaceGym founder, Inge Theron.
Sonic cleansing tools have elevated the most basic element of any beauty routine. Even the staunchest hot-cloth devotee will be tempted
by a power-assisted cleanse. Combine it with Talika's blemish blasting Free Skin Purifying Energy Booster and you've got a mini pro facial
on-the-go. Alexia Inge thinks that gadgets are just the tip of the beauty revolution. "App-based beauty tech is really starting to hit its stride,
and we are seeing some really interesting diagnostic devices hitting the market too," she says, predicting that, "in the next few years, I see
beauty tech broadening across categories into a much more personalised format, especially around application."
Of course, by using a quartz tool or a micro needle roller and just a little elbow grease, you can reveal visible improvement in fine lines and
boost radiance, proving that not all brilliant beauty solutions require voltage or a payment plan.
