THE delicate skin of the face and neck are the only areas of the body where skin is directly attached to muscles. As facial muscles lengthen or contract with age, the first signs of ageing begin to appear in these areas. The handheld ELVi with a rhodium-coated plate can be used daily in either facial mode or lifting mode, for three minutes per mode. A current of ions acts like a magnet to draw skincare products into the deeper layers of skin, while micro-vibrations massage and tone the skin. Finally, red LED light helps generate new collagen to reduce the formation and appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Dyson Supersonic hair dryer
pricing and launch date to be advised
LIGHT years ahead of the competition, this compact device uses a fast and focused airflow, is quieter than other dryers and controls the temperature to help protect hair from extreme heat damage. Powered by a lightweight digital motor that is up to eight times faster than other hair dryer motors and half the weight, the chic machine is powerful yet feels balanced in the hand. And it certainly looks a lot more stylish, even with its magnetic attachments like a hair-smoothing nozzle, than its clunky competitors.
Philips VisaCare Microdermabrasion
from selected Sephora stores
EQUIPPED with microdermabrasion technology commonly used in professional beauty salons, the device encourages blood circulation, while removing dead skin cells. Its gentle vacuum-like action gently massages the skin for a lifted, plumped-up effect, while an exfoliating tip buffs away dead skin cells and stimulates the natural cell renewal process. Immediate smoothness can be observed, and the process promotes the penetration of all skincare products. Suitable for all skin types, the exfoliating device can be used for five minutes, twice a week.
