Those were the days, and we’re talking about a long time ago, where a skincare regimen easily consists of a cleanser, toner and moisturiser. Now skincare regimens have grown immensely, from a 3-step rule to a 10-step one with the addition of scrubs, serums, lotions, and even facial masks. When we thought the list could not grow any further (there are even pre-lotions now), here comes the future of skincare — LED light therapy in beauty gadgets.

LED; Light Emitting Diode emits therapeutic wavelengths of light energy that are proven effective on promoting skin health. How does it work? — specific wavelengths get infused into the skin cells which will then convert itself to energy — subsequently acting as ‘energy’ for the cells to react and do its job.

Too complicated? Basically, all you need to do is to learn your colours to be an LED light therapy-expert. Each colour targets specific skin concerns — blue light reduces acne, yellow light reduces fine lines and wrinkles, red light is for inflammation and green light is for pigmentation.

The best part about all of these fancy beauty gadgets is that you can do it in the comfort of your home. These LED beauty gadgets only require 10 to 15 mins of your time. Your skin will thank you after the treatment.
