‘Smart’ mirror and hairbrush, collagen-boosting shades–what’s next?
Let’s admit this: The future scares all of us a bit. But I think if I’d be able to live long enough to see the emergence of a “smart” beauty mirror on the market, I’d gladly embrace it.
I scouted the Internet for the craziest and most innovative beauty technology disrupting the industry today. While I love me some Temptu Air, Dyson Supersonic, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel and Conair Infinity Pro-Curl Secret, I can’t help but look up other novel items that will surely knock my Chanel slippers off when I try them.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, what can I do to be the fairest of them all?
Said to be one of the world’s first-ever smart beauty mirrors—a breed of gadgets that does more than flash reflections—the HiMirror is a product that examines your skin by taking a picture and gives you a skin diagnosis, and even a makeup routine you should follow. Dermatologists, beware, they will give you a run for your money!
As if a quick, thorough inspection wasn’t enough, the Korean tech giant has come out with Samsung S-Skin, a two-part package that lets you analyze your skin as well as treat it.
The device tracks your skin condition, while a biodegradable microneedle patch supposedly penetrates the skin with special ingredients that help heal and reduce blemishes. When you talk about multi-tasking products, this has got to be one of them!
Nanette de Gaspé masks
I’ve always been hesitant to jump on the sheet mask trend due to its messy nature, but thanks to luxury brand Nanette de Gaspé’s waterless masks, we’re now granted the privilege of soaking in beneficial ingredients without getting wet.
Each mask in the label’s collection supposedly contains 87-percent active ingredients that are dry-printed on fabric from Japan.
Looks like everything’s smart nowadays. The luxury haircare brand has released its first smart hairbrush named HairCoach.
It sounds weird enough from reports. Apparently, this little tool not only tames your hair, it can also warn you of damage through a connected mobile app. No more guessing if your hair’s been dry or frizzy, this one can do it for you.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare SpectraLite EyeCare Pro
Bid your crow’s feet goodbye with this futuristic cyborg product from board-certified dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross. The SpectraLite EyeCare Pro blasts collagen-boosting red and amber LED lights around your eyes and brows to reduce inflammation in the skin as well as kickstart the creation of collagen.
Wearable, easy-to-use, and incredibly entertaining, this next-generation shades of sorts claim to treat signs of aging in as fast as a month or two.
