Let’s face it; after the year we’ve all had, we could do with a little pampering, and with social occasions finally filling our calendars once again and a summer of sophisticated soirees and glamorous garden parties coming right up, it’s time we got back to looking our best.
While the world seemed to stop turning during this unprecedented period of uncertainty, the word of beauty and wellness certainly didn’t rest on its laurels, and with a plethora of technological innovations transforming the landscape, there’s a whole host of innovative new launches to get our teeth into this year.
So, if your skincare routine fell by the wayside, you’re still feeling stressed and frazzled, and frankly, you can’t quite remember the last time you properly styled your hair, then it’s time to get excited – because the latest beauty tech products on the block are about to get you red carpet-ready in no time.
Here, we take a look at the latest innovative launches you’ll want to splurge on for the summer – from the best new wellness product on the block to all the tools you’ll need to overhaul your look.
MiHigh Infrared Sauna Blanket
The benefits of spending time in a sauna have long been recognised, but MiHigh’s offering goes one better, giving users the opportunity to take regular infrared sessions from the comfort of their own home. Infrared saunas have already won themselves a legion of loyal fans, with A-list celebrities and global sports stars extolling their virtues – but now, you can simply plug in for a session wherever you are – glowing complexion afterwards guaranteed.
Infrared heat is known to be up to seven times more detoxifying than standard sauna heat, which means that with the MiHigh, you’ll sweat out the nasty toxins inside your body – not just water. A 30-minute session is also thought to help you burn up to a whopping 600 calories – leaving your usual 30-minute jog in the dust. Even better, you can simply lie back and relax while doing so – and what could be more appealing than that?
You can expect to end your session feeling sweaty but relaxed. Your infrared sauna session stimulates the release of calming happy chemicals, endorphins – reducing feelings of stress and setting you up for a great night’s sleep.
If there’s one thing you treat yourself to this month, make it this – it will fast become a beauty and wellness must-have you won’t be able to do without.
Cloud Nine The Premium Collection – Airshot Pro
Designed to cut your drying time in half, the ultra-modern Airshot Pro hair dryer goes to new lengths to give you those perfectly styled locks. Designed with Cloud Nine’s innovative ‘kinder styling technology’, its revolutionary ‘eco-precision motor’ monitors velocity to optimise air flow at powerful speeds.
Equipped with a ceramic, mineral-infused heating element designed to infuse the hair with tourmaline and sericite to lock in moisture and seal the cuticle, it guarantees you shinier, healthier looking hair with minimal heat damage. Reducing frizz by reducing the amount of negatively charged particles, this is one seriously high-tech hairdryer you just won’t be able to live without.
Oh, and did we mention that it comes in an opulent white and rose gold design for top marks in the aesthetics department, too?
Cloud Nine The Premium Collection – The Original Iron Pro
Gone are the days when a hair iron’s only job was to straighten – as the Original Iron Pro is a super-charged version that promises stronger, shinier and healthier looking hair to boot. With a variable temperature control and mineral infused plates to lock in moisture, seal the cuticle and add a whole new level of shine, its ‘revive mode’ works to minimise friction, vibrating 8,000 times a minute at 150°C to seal in your style for a look that is guaranteed to last longer.
It also happens to be one of the most beautiful irons we’ve ever seen, and one that has won itself a place in our beauty arsenal for life.
Bea Ultra-Quartz Cleansing Wand
Featuring a rose quartz massager that combines massaging and heating technologies to bring your skin back to life, Bea’s cleansing wand utilises advanced sonic facial cleansing technology to remove dirt and toxins, combat the signs of ageing and improve the tone and clarity of skin with regular use. Thoroughly removing debris from the pores with its oscillating soft bristles, it offers a deeper and more satisfying cleanse that your skin will thank you for – and here at LLM, we love it!
For a fresh and rejuvenated complexion that’s certain to win you compliments, we recommend injecting a little luxury into your morning and evening skin routine with this small yet mighty beauty tool.
Foxy Locks Gold Plated Curling Iron
With social occasions now firmly back in our diaries, it’s time to ramp up the glamour, and Foxy Locks’ gold plated curling iron is just the ticket for big and bouncy red carpet-worthy curls and Hollywood waves alike.
Featuring a 32-inch gold titanium plated barrel, it offers fast heat distribution and even heat conduction to allow you to create kink-free curls that last, with negative ion technology designed to eliminate frizz and protect hair from heat damage for a smoother, shinier look.
If you’ve got a big occasion coming up this summer, then this iron has got you covered – and with its opulent gold barrel, it looks pretty sophisticated itself, too.
Cellreturn BD2 Sonic Face Cleanser
This compact yet powerful facial cleanser gets deep into the pores to remove dirt and debris and prides itself on being the most powerful of its kind on the market. Working on replaceable batteries, it’s the perfect pick for the person who is always on the go, and its fine 0.8mm silicone bristles make it suitable for all skin types and 35 times more hygienic than more classic nylon bristled facial brushes.
Delivering an impressive 11,000 pulsations per minute, it may be small but it’s certainly mighty, and is guaranteed to leave your skin feeling fresh, rejuvenated and better than ever.
