Though they make you look slightly upsetting on the outside, these eight LED light-therapy masks will get you glowing underneath by reducing inflammation, acne, wrinkles, and discoloration at depths your topical products can't on their own.
The Popular One
This LED mask from Dr. Dennis Gross is one of the more fashionable ones on the market. It comes with gold accents, 162 LED lights, and three convenient 3- minute treatment options to choose from: red-light therapy, blue-light therapy, or red and bluelight therapy. This mask is lightweight, completely hands free, and now comes in limited-edition black if you're looking to stand out from the other LED mask selfies on the feed.
The Speedy One
If you have things to do and places to be, strap this baby on. Using two different wavelengths of red light, it focuses all its energy on firming and evening everything out. Stick to ten-minute treatments three to five times a week, and you'll look generally glowier and healthier in just four weeks.
The Colorful One That Gets Your Neck, Too
This wireless mask features seven different color options to address every issue imaginable on the face: red and blue (the usual suspects), along with green (for discoloration), yellow (for fine lines and wrinkles), purple (for scar reduction), light blue (for a more soothing acne treatment), and white (which tightens and penetrates the deepest). It also comes with a bonus attachment for the neck, arguably the most overlooked part of skin-care routines (sad).
The Flexible One
This soft, silicone mask is less hockey goalie and more like an actual face mask that molds to your face shape for a more comfortable treatment. If you have overall rejuvenation in mind, this pick delivers red light and near-infrared 830-nanometer light, considered one of the most powerful of the wavelengths, to stimulate healing and improve blood and lymph circulation while you kick up your feet, sit back, and relax.
The One That's Clear
This mask is like those weird Kanye glasses, except it's for your entire face and you can actually see out of it without lines obstructing your view. It's designed to be very wearable and on-the-go (the mask is set on a glasses frame, so it won't slip or fall off should you travel from room to room), so you can continue doing whatever you're doing while treating your skin to red, blue, or yellow lights.
The One to Keep on Call
If your skin is temperamental, it's nice to have a well-rounded, high- performance mask on call. Designed to replicate MZ skin founder Dr. Maryam Zamani's in-office treatments, it comes with five different light settings (red, blue, green, yellow, and white) so you can focus on anything from inflamed breakouts to the annoying scars and discoloration those pimples sometimes leave in their wake.
The Renowned, Wireless One
The CellReturn mask is one of the best-selling masks in Korea, where skin care reigns supreme, and its stats shed some light on why. Made with NASA-developed technology, an impressive 690 LEDs, three wavelengths of light (red, pink, and blue), zero cords, zero wires, and no control panel (you tap your forehead to switch wavelengths), it simply becomes one with your face and makes it firmer, plumper, and younger-looking.
