If lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that great self-care can be achieved from the comfort of our own homes. This change in lifestyle has paved the way for experimental and imaginative approaches to our beauty routines. In the absence of spas and salons, we’re starting to demand more from the products we use at home. In Beautifully Applied Science, world-renowned Swedish beauty and wellness brand, FOREO and haircare experts, T3 take centre stage, providing us with a masterclass high-tech beauty. Want to inject some technology into your daily routine? May we introduce some revolutionary products that can get the job done anytime, anywhere.
First up is FOREO’s most recent release; ‘Bear’. It’s easy to see where this smart device gets its name from, and it’s function sounds as fierce as its namesake. It challenges your face to a complete workout, toning, and sculpting everything it touches. The result is firm, radiant, and youthful-looking skin.
Bear has a total of five routines at its disposal. One dubbed the ‘Total Facial Knockout’ entails a four-minute routine that helps contour the cheekbones, forehead, neck and jawline through a combination of microcurrent and T-sonic™ pulsations. Personalised sessions can be preprogrammed via the ‘FOREO For You’ App, and a further four are available to use manually with the device.
This is the only microcurrent device in the world that features Anti-Shock System™, which guarantees shock-free treatments for maximum safety and comfort, making Bear “The world’s safest microcurrent device” according to FOREO.
The technology behind Bear works with low-voltage electrical currents that mirror that of your own body to help refine and contour the skin. Pulsations of the currents relax the facial muscle tension points, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When a microcurrent is applied, skin cells break down and then grow back significantly stronger. FOREO recommends that you use their specialist serum, included in addition to Bear, to ensure spellbinding skin and lasting results.
Bear also comes in a miniature size for those of you seeking skincare solutions on the go.
Next up is a product that is no stranger to our praises at .Cent Magazine. Dubbed “the biggest innovation in the last 60 years within the dental industry” and even having appeared in Star Trek, the FOREO ISSA 2 has a cult-like following of those wanting the absolute best for their pearly whites.
ISSA 2 is the newest model of toothbrush in FOREO’s dental care line. It combines durable PBT polymer, ultra-soft silicone and remarkable sonic pulse technology into an electric toothbrush that lasts for 365 days on a single hour’s charge. The materials used for the ISSA 2 harbours 10,000 fewer bacteria than a nylon brush head yet lasts twice as long in comparison. While it softly massages gums, it removes 30% more plaque than a manual toothbrush.
This device has significantly raised the bar for advanced oral care unlike any other on the market. As an update of the original ISSA toothbrush, this model boasts of an increased battery-life by an extra six months, doubled speed settings up to 11,000 high-intensity pulsations per minute and comes in a range of vibrant colours.
