As my at-home beauty routine has gotten a major upgrade in recent years, I’ve turned to a facialist-approved skincare device as an add-on to my routine: the NuFace.
I first discovered the microcurrent tool a few years ago as an intern in the beauty room at Condé Nast’s Times Square office, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Over the past few years, during Vogue‘s Beauty Secrets franchise, I’ve seen many It girls pull one out of their beauty bags and praise it for being Their “desert island” must.
So what is the microcurrent technology? Think of the dual-pipe foot massager as a Pilates class for your face. Micro-current technology only takes Facial muscles, tighten loose skin and improve the appearance of fine lines. My favorite areas to use the handheld is on the edge of my jaw and the bottom of my cheekbones—it’s like instant contouring.
NuFace is the ultimate pre-red carpet must-have for A-listers, given its instant results. When we asked some of the most popular estheticians about their at-home grooming routines, NuFace topped the list.
While this skincare device charges using a wall connector, I found the battery lasted for weeks. Since it fits in just about any makeup bag, I take mine with me on vacations around the world (although curious TSA officers checked out the device in Dubai and Hong Kong). I always make sure to clean the prongs with an alcohol wipe and slather on the gel primer before using. While we’re all looking for solutions to prolong the effects of our last facial, consider the NuFace your best bang for the buck, especially now that the skin-care device goes on sale ahead of Cyber Week.
