When you’re finished, it shuts off automatically. Available at simplehuman. com, $130.00
Take out the acne with this mask
Although this device looks more like a Halloween costume mask, the truth is that it is an effective and novel treatment for acne. This gadget called illuMask uses a combination of red and blue lights to zap acne and various skin problems. Blue light kills acne-causing bacteria, even before breakouts can appear. Red light reduces inflam- mation, heals breakouts, and evens skin tone.
The ‘coolest’ way to shave
Irritation has always accompanied men when they shave and the heat generated by razor contact
is one of the main causes. To avoid this problem, the Braun’s °CoolTec has the ‘active cooling technology’ with an innovative aluminium cooling bar integrated into its head that actively cools down the skin during shaving, minimizing redness, burning and itching sensations. Available at Amazon, $80.
Laser to treat baldness

The gadget’s creators claim that if used regularly – three times or more a week, 10 to 15 minutes each time – you will be able to see improvements, including thicker and more manageable hair.

Stay away, plastic surgeon
If you think going under the knife is your only option to look young and attractive, maybe you should try before the NuFace.
