Putting your best face forward isn't exactly easy right now, but that's where a skincare tool can make all the difference.
Whether it's pulsates, oscillates or massages against your skin, devices are one way to up the ante of your isolation skincare routine. They're also the next best thing to your facialists' hands until salons open again.
That it would appear is something Myleene Klass knows only too well, when says in a recent Instagram post, "It’s cold, it’s grey and my skin feels drier and more dehydrated than normal. I thought just slathering on some extra face cream should do the trick but I’ve discovered something even better! "
Enter the Foreo UFO 2 device, which is currently experiencing a staggering 28,000% increase in Google searches.
It's not hard to see why. The Foreo UFO 2 combines sheet masks with a proven combination of LED light therapy, T-sonic pulsations, plus heat and cooling modes to ensure the mask’s ingredients are absorbed better and your skin gets a temporary lift.
"It takes 90 seconds and it will immediately make your skin look and feel phenomenal, exactly the same effect as if you’ve just had a super luxurious facial," says Klass, who describes the action of the Foreo UFO 2 as first "melting the mask into the skin", then "massaging in the ingredients" and "setting it as it cools down".
Klass readily admits that she's not always been this diligent with her skincare.
"When I was younger, I threw everything at my skin. I didn't even take my make-up off. Now I pay more attention to my skin. Once you get older, it's something you have to accept...Plus I'm a tired mum, up with my teething toddler at the moment, and I don't get enough sleep or drink enough water."
But if Klass' skin is anything to go by after just a minute and a half, we'll be adding the Foreo UFO2 to our Black Friday wishlist.
