The importance of looking after your skin

The importance of looking after your skin

Getting to grips with a skincare routine can be both frustrating and time consuming, you’ve probably tried a whole host of serums, oils and beauty devices. But it’s worth persevering, because looking after your skin is one of the most important things you can do.

As the largest organ in our bodies, our skin has many functions. Keeping our skin healthy gives us the best chance of defending against illness and protecting our bones, joints and other organs from damage. Plus our skin plays a vital role in keeping our body temperature regulated and also stores key nutrients and water.

That’s why it’s important to create a skincare routine that works for you. So while we love to use beauty devices to enhance how our skin looks on the outside, their innovative technologies are also actually working deep below the skin’s surface to repair and rejuvenate your skin on a cellular level too. Plus when paired with the right skincare, you’ll be well on your way to perfecting your very own skincare routine.

You might be wondering where to begin, but fear not, we’ve done all the hard work for you, as we share some of the best beauty devices and skincare combinations that will help you take care of your skin.

CURRENTBODY skin LED Light Therapy Mask

Best for rejuvenating your complexion

LED light therapy has become one of the hottest treatments in the beauty industry. Treating fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, skin texture and much more, it really comes as no surprise that the sale of home use LED devices has soared.

Our CURRENTBODY skin LED Light Therapy Mask combines red and near-infrared light therapy which penetrates deep into the skin’s surface, boosting circulation, stimulating collagen production and delivering key nutrients and oxygen to the skin’s cells. The results? Nourished, healthy skin that’s visibly glowing.

If you want to accelerate your results, our LED mask pairs perfectly with the CURRENTBODY skin Daily Foaming Cleanser and CURRENTBODY skin Daily AHA Tonic to cleanse and prep your skin. Use the CURRENTBODY skin Hyaluronic Acid Serum immediately after your LED device to boost its anti-ageing results. Or alternatively, the CURRENTBODY skin Hydrogel Mask helps LED light to penetrate the skin directly, while giving it an instantly nourishing boost.

Ulike Diamond Air+ IPL Hair Removal Device

Best for protecting your skin

Body hair is completely normal, but if you’re somebody who’s obsessed with silky smooth skin, you might be intrigued by hair removal devices. All we can say is, if you’re looking to buy one, invest in one that will not only effectively stunt hair regrowth, but protect your skin in the process too.

So with that being said let us introduce you to Ulike Diamond Air+. The device harnesses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology to stunt hair regrowth at the hair follicle. This IPL device is a little different from others on the market though, it harnesses Sapphire Freezing Technology. This clever cooling technology reduces the heat output and protects the epidermis. In doing so, it makes each treatment painless and non-invasive.

Best paired with….

Exfoliating before your treatments is the best way to remove dead skin, use the CURRENTBODY skin Daily AHA Tonic to allow for better absorption of light and to enhance the effectiveness of your hair removal treatments. It’s also key to restore moisture to the skin’s surface after treatments, using a water-based serum such as the CURRENTBODY skin Hyaluronic Acid Serum will help to keep your skin soft and supple.

NEWA Anti-Ageing Skincare Device

Best for repairing skin cells

When it comes to tightening and firming your skin, this medical-grade device is one of the best. Harnessing radio frequency technology, the NEWA Anti-Ageing Skincare Device firms your complexion and smooths out wrinkles, but it does so by working deep within the dermis layer of your skin to rebuild collagen fibres.

It does this by sending a gentle heat to the skin's cells to stimulate collagen production and skin cell renewal. This pain-free treatment reinvigorates healthy skin activity to improve your skin's overall condition, soften wrinkles and give your skin a healthy glow.

Best paired with...

We recommend cleansing with the CURRENTBODY skin Daily Foaming Cleanser to remove traces of makeup and impurities. Use the CURRENTBODY skin Daily AHA Tonic to gently exfoliate and encourage skin cell renewal. Apply the CURRENTBODY skin Radio Frequency Conductive Gel before using the device. This lightweight gel has been specifically designed to enhance the conductivity of radio frequency, ensuring it penetrates deep into your skin.

ZIIP OX Nanocurrent Device

Best for treating a range of concerns

This palm-fit device might look small, but it’s one of the most innovative beauty devices available. Created by a dedicated team of scientists and skincare experts, the ZIIP OX Nanocurrent Device harnesses a unique combination of nanocurrent, microcurrent and direct-current to treat a whole host of skin concerns. With 9 treatment programmes to choose from, you can treat wrinkles, sagging skin, pigmentation, drain toxins and even zap breakouts.

It works by stimulating a naturally-occuring chemical called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), which is responsible for repairing damaged skin cells. As we age, we begin to produce less ATP, but ZIIP OX helps to increase your ATP levels to restore a more supple, healthier-looking complexion.

Best paired with...

Prep your skin with the CURRENTBODY skin Daily Foaming Cleanser and CURRENTBODY skin Daily AHA Tonic to remove impurities and enhance your treatments. Replenish dry skin with the CURRENTBODY skin Hyaluronic Acid Serum or give skin an instant boost with our nourishing CURRENTBODY skin Hydrogel Mask.
