Covid-19 and a global lockdown made me re-evaluate my beauty priorities. While not a monthly facial sort of girl, not being able to have my skin professionally treated when required, left me looking my absolute worst. That’s when I realised that I needed to be better prepared should such a similar situation – with unpredictability seeming to be a recurring theme of the #newnormal – arise in the future.
I decided that I needed an easy to use device that could keep my skin healthy and glowing from the comfort of my home. But with so many devices available in the market today, it’s important to be able to sift the wheat from the chaff and find the device that delivers what it promises, while at the same time fitting in with my lifestyle, budget and time restrictions.
I discovered Nu Skin about a decade ago by accident, and have always been impressed with the high quality of their skin care products. A few years ago the team and I had the opportunity to trial and review the ageLOC LumiSpa and ageLOC Accent both beauty devices were easy to use, so when the brand announced the launch of a new home-beauty device, I knew I had to get my hands on it!
The ageLOC Boost, the newest addition to the ageLOC family of beauty devices is a slim, ergonomic tool that takes just two-minutes a day to keep my skin looking and feeling more hydrated, plump and glowing. While it is recommended to be used in the morning, I use it at night as I find it helps prevent my skin from drying out in the air conditioning while I sleep, and I love how plump and even-toned my complexion looks the next morning.
On days that I need to attend meetings or press events, I use the ageLOC Boost the previous night, and on the day of my event/meeting, so my skin looks brighter, plumper and just all round better than it otherwise would.
The Science Behind The ageLOC Boost
The treatment combines the ageLOC Boost device and ageLOC Boost Activating Treatment and works by sending charged-balanced, intermittent, variable pulses to the skin eight times per second. When used with the ageLOC Boost Activating Treatment, the micro-current optimises and activates the skin to achieve a more glowing youthful complexion.
Do bear in mind that the device needs to be used together with the Activating Treatment and the treatment head should be in contact with your skin at all times. Unlike some devices that use micro-currents, the ageLOC Boost will not shock you or cause any discomfort whatsoever. The entire process is fast, pain-free and depending on your skin type, age and condition, results can be seen immediately or the next day.
Skin Benefits You Can Expect
Over time, you can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, an improvement in skin tone, and a more youthful, hydrated, plumper and softer complexion.
Do I Think It’s Worth Getting?
The short answer is yes. It only takes two minutes a day and you can see the results almost immediately. For a person who has very little time for self-care, I find it convenient to incorporate the ageLOC Boost into my daily skin care regimen, and I am really happy with the results. I plan to try using it before a sheet mask tonight, to see if it boosts the benefits of the mask, like it does my regular skin care.
The ageLOC Boost Starter Kit is now available in Singapore for $446. For more information or to purchase your device, go here.
