The skincare connoisseur and famed makeup artist of Salma Hayek, Nicole Kidman and Cindy Crawford has put her expertise into this new face mask. The cryo-recovery mask was inspired by the high-performance ice technology of cryotherapy and the ancient art of facial acupressure techniques that help create the appearance of lifted, firmer, smoother and refreshed skin. Unlike other face masks, this one is reusable and made from flexible, skin-cushioning silicone for added comfort and washability. Put the mask in the freezer for 30 minutes ahead of use and then, once it is in place, secure it with the Velcro straps and massage the metal beads into pressure points and relax.

The 24K massage bar is lightweight and is small enough to move seamlessly around the face in upward and outward motions. Three to five minutes a day is enough to depuff and help with sinus pressure.
Steaming is great for dehydrated skin. It clarifies the complexion, offers better blood circulation and makes skin more receptive to skincare treatments, which results in a more moisturized and softer appearance. Aira uses an ion generator that enriches the water molecules, helping the steam penetrate and clean even deeper. For optimal results, use this no longer than 15 minutes a day, two to three times a week.
Georgia Louise, the go-to esthetician for Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sandra Bullock and more, has taken her facial massage technique and put it into a product for your home. The butterfly-shaped tool is meant to lift, drain and sculpt the face by hitting all the facial contour points. To reduce puffiness, this can be kept in the fridge for an added benefit. By following a specific motion, the Butterfly Stone helps with lymphatic drainage, which is important for detoxifying the skin. The rose quartz crystal has healing capabilities that go beyond the face. For a great night’s sleep, place the stone under your pillow to help calm your thoughts and improve your shut eye. Pair this with the Georgia Louise for Toast Your Grace Bi-Phase Serum ($270), a hemp-infused skincare line meant to calm, protect and transform the skin.
On one side of the DERMAPORE Ultrasonic device, ultrasonic wave technology loosens pore-clogging substances for painless extraction. The curved spatula glides effortlessly over your nose, chin and forehead to remove blackheads, dirt, oil and debris. The other side is great to ensure serums, masks and moisturizers get deep beneath the skin’s surface.
Reduit BOOST, $199
Former physicist Paul Peros created the skincare device BOOST, which uses pulsed electromagnetic field technology and LED light therapy. Powered by NASA technology to electrically stimulate bone growth in humans in weightless conditions, it now makes your favorite creams and serums more effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, uneven and dull skin tones and acne. Using your fingers to apply products results in only four percent of active ingredients actually getting absorbed; with BOOST, the absorption rate is increased four times by pushing diamagnetic materials like water deeper into the skin. BOOST also has an app that will determine the best skin regimen for you and detects active ingredients and programs waveforms to push them to the right depth. It’s also pocket-sized which makes it great for travel.

NuFace NuBody, $399
NuFace took their popular face product and incorporated the microcurrent technology into a device for the body. The microcurrent is a low-level electrical current that sends gentle waves through the skin to the muscles. It helps mimic and reenergize the body’s own natural current to tone and firm skin if used continuously for five minutes a day. It is FDA-cleared and esthetician-approved. Use it on the arms, buttocks, abs and thighs for optimal results. This comes with an aqua gel activator that will leave your skin feeling hydrated for 24 hours.
