There are so many skin care products and gadgets on the market ranging in price from a few dollars to a few hundred – even a few thousand – dollars. The price does not always reflect the quality. While one might assume that the price means a high number of active ingredients, it is often more a reflection of the marketing costs and packaging.
To distinguish what fluff is from what’s really worth opening your wallet for, we worked with dermatologist Dr. Jeannette Graf, assistant professor of dermatology at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine.
Here’s a look at their top four luxury skin care products and gadgets.
dr Dennis Gross LED mask
“This FDA-approved LED face mask is designed to quickly target wrinkles and acne. The red light supports natural collagen production, helps with anti-aging and the blue light helps kill bacteria on the skin to treat current breakouts and prevent future ones.”
NuFACE Trinity Starter Kit
“The Nu Face is a wonderful tool to incorporate into your skincare routine with frequent use. It is a microcurrent face lift device that visibly contours and tightens facial muscles to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consistency is key with this tool, but if you use it daily you will notice a difference in how toned your face looks.”
Feel the Bio Complete Serum
“This is one of my favorite retinols. It combines the power of retinol with the heparan sulfate analogue (HSA), making it better suited to sensitive skin than traditional retinols. It also contains vitamin C, which makes once-sallow skin radiant and radiant.”
U Beauty Resurfacing Compound
“This is an all-rounder serum. It combines retinol, antioxidants, AHAs, and hyaluronic acid to improve texture, blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation while hydrating skin. Skin looks smoother, firmer and renewed after consistent use.”
