Let’s face it, getting old sucks. We all wish we could keep our youthful looks forever. Imagine waking up 30 years from now with that same glowing complexion you have today. One can dream, right? Well, maybe you won’t have to for much longer.

As it turns out, it might not be as far-fetched as it seems. So take a seat and join us in our pursuit of perfection as we take a look at some of the top beauty-enhancing gadgets 2023 has to offer.

Bear by FOREO

Face toners are everywhere in this day and age. While they are all similar in their purpose, one product stands above all else in this category: the Bear by FOREO.

The Swedish company comes out swinging with two variations of this sleek, top-quality item. While the Bear provides full facial and targeted routines when paired with an accompanying app, the Bear Mini provides just the full facial element. But don’t let that fool you. Both come with a combination of ‘Anti-shock system’ and ‘T-Sonic massage’ which help “tighten and firm skin for a youthful, contoured complexion, exercising the 65+ muscles in your face and neck in just 2 mins,” according to the company’s website. Paired with one of its special serums, your youthful looks won’t be going anywhere fast.

Slip Silk pillowcase by Slip

It’s a nightmare we’ve all experienced. You wake up in the morning after carefully applying your nightly serums and moisturisers and, to your horror, your pillowcase has absorbed the whole lot. Well, we’ve got the solution to all your nighttime woes.

Introducing the Slip Silk by Slip. What looks like a standard pillowcase is actually the secret weapon you didn’t know you needed. Touted by the website as being “anti-ageing, anti-sleep crease, anti-bedhead,” these are some of the things you can expect from this unique pillowcase. With it also being anti-absorbent to boot, your evening skincare routine will last you through the night. Sweet dreams.

Droplette Skin infuser device by Droplette

What started as a way to treat a genetic skin disease has branched out into a skincare device to aid the masses. We’re talking about the Droplette skin infuser by Droplette. Utilising a painless, injection-free delivery system, Droplette delivers a micro-mist of active ingredients from one of three formulas—glycolic acid, retinol and collagen.

Not only do these come in easy-to-install capsules, but the unique delivery system also hydrates and protects the skin against any side effects the active ingredients may cause. Science and beauty—a match made in heaven.

Dr. Dennis Gross spectralite faceware by Dr. Dennis Gross

Fancy looking like a superhero and beating the ageing process? Look no further because the Dr. Dennis Gross spectralite faceware is here. With anti-ageing properties and acne-beating treatments applied with special light therapy, in just three minutes a day, you can turn back the clock. The device claims to “help build collagen and kill acne-causing bacteria while healing, repairing, and preventing damage.” All this, while looking like Iron Man? We’re sold.

Zuvi Halo hair dryer by Zuvi

Hair dryers are a staple of most households. But what sets one apart from all the rest? “All they do is dry hair!” we hear you cry. Indeed, they do, but there is one that does so much more than that. Introducing the Zuvi Halo hair dryer by Zuvi. This sleek, compact device mimics the sun’s natural rays and uses its patented ‘LightCare’ technology which quickly dries the water on the hair’s surface, leaving the inside happy and healthy.

By utilising this technology, Zuvi promises “+38 per cent shinier hair, +17 per cent smoother hair, +57 per cent colour retention and +9 per cent stronger hair,” which is music to our ears. On top of all that, the Halo is one of the most sustainable hair dryers on the market, boasting an impressive 60 per cent reduction in energy usage than a standard dryer and with a year of use, can even remove up to 30 kilograms of CO2 from the atmosphere—the equivalent of planting a tree. Looking good and saving the planet? It’s a win in our books.
