The Top 5 At-Home Anti-Ageing Devices That Actually Work
When it comes to anti-ageing, those in the know are well aware that there is more to line-free skin than the latest potion, lotion and fancy emulsion. In recent years, at-home beauty gadgets have become skincare staples for beauty’s elite promising to tighten wrinkles, fight under-eye circles, reduce acne, combat environmental damage and leave skin with that spa-like glow.
With most of us in Ugg-boot hibernation for winter, we’ve pulled together this season’s latest hi-tech beauty devices you can use from the comfort of your own home.
EXYRA Blue Light Filtering Eyewear
Like our much-loved SPF, prevention is the best cure when it comes to fighting premature ageing. Blue light, or High Energy Visible (HEV) light, is energy emitted from smartphones, computers, TVs and tablets. With most Aussies clocking more than 10 hours of screen time daily, blue light can cause oxidative stress on the skin and create free radicals which threaten the integrity of collagen structures deep within the epidermis. To combat this, EXYRA’s stylish eye wear is made using an exclusive photochromic dye which absorbs and blocks blue light from entering the retina and damaging the delicate skin around the eyes which is often prone to crow’s feet and other pigmentation issues. With a range of styles and lens options to choose from, including prescription and non-prescription, EXYRA eye wear is the perfect tool for youthful peepers all year round.

Creating a vacuum suction on the skin, the pen effectively dislodges blackheads and clears pores from excess sebum which can lead to those annoying blemishes. Gentle and non-invasive, the powerful device sucks up dead skin cells for texture-free skin while also providing micro-massages to fight fine lines and wrinkles. With four interchangeable heads and five suction intensities, the Bella Vita is completely customisable to all skin types, including sensitive. Available with convenient USB charging, this $25 pen will save you countless dollars at the dermatologist.

Lonvitalite Microneedle Derma Roller
A fan favourite last year, this at-home treatment device continues to intrigue and impress the masses in 2019. Comprised of precise tiny titanium needles, this device is gently rolled on the skin in a vertical motion to create controlled trauma called micro-punctures. These punctures trigger the skin’s natural repair process signalling the body to produce new collagen and elastin, leaving the skin firmer and plumper over time. Ideal for treating fine lines, wrinkles, skin discolouration, unwanted texture and acne scarring, the device also allows for better skincare absorption, improving its efficacy by up to 40%. Available in a range of sizes, we recommend the entry level 0.3mm needles for a painless but powerful anti-ageing treatment.
