Beauty mogul Helena Rubenstein famously said, "There are no ugly women, only lazy ones". And you’d be hard-pressed to disagree judging by the complex skin care routines the women of today have adopted.
However, your daily skin care regimen may not be enough to keep your complexion clear and luminous, that’s why some women even indulge in regular facials for deep-cleansing, to give your skin some much-needed pampering. The only problem? Facials can be costly and time-consuming.
Enter the Hitachi HadaCRiE Cool ($499) and FaceCRiE series (from $199) — two handy beauty devices that provide fast professional beauty results from the comfort of your home.
Using the power of ionisation the HadaCRiE Cool comes with four modes that will gently purge deeply-embedded dirt, moisturise and tighten your pores to reveal refreshed and radiant skin.
Cleansing Mode (5 minutes)
Place a toner-soaked cotton pad on the HadaCRiE Cool head and gently massage your skin. In this mode, the HadaCRiE Cool uses positive ions to purge out dirt trapped deep in your pores, and results show that more dirt is drawn out using the HadaCRiE Cool compared to regular cleansing.
Micro-pat Mode (5 minutes)
Apply another round of toner to your face and glide the head of the HadaCRiE Cool along your skin in an upwards motion, gently massaging as you go. The HadaCRiE Cool uses micro-vibration and pulse signals to enhance your skin's moisture absorption for the next step.
Moisturising Mode (5 minutes)
Again, place another toner-soaked cotton pad on the head of the device and gently massage your face with it. In this mode, the HadaCRiE Cool uses negative ions to enable your toner to penetrate deeper into your skin, resulting in a deep moisturising treatment.
Cool-aesthetic mode (3 minutes)
Select this mode to cool the device for 1½ minutes before patting your skin gently with it for another 1½ minutes to enjoy a cooling effect. This step helps tighten pores and can be used to cool your skin before applying makeup as well.
If you prefer a no-frills device to help optimise your daily cleansing regime, then the FaceCRiE series is just the beauty device for you.
Ideal even for sensitive skin thanks to the high-frequency waveform that helps reduce stimulation to the skin, the FaceCRiE thoroughly removes dirt and grime from deep within your pores simply with a toner-soaked cotton pad and three minutes of gentle massage.
Choose from four electrical current intensities depending on your skin's requirements, after which the FaceCRiE will memorise your default intensity level.
So the next time you feel like your skin could use some pampering, turn to the Hitachi HadaCRiE Cool or FaceCRiE and you won't have to leave the comforts of your home just for the sake of beauty.
