8 At-Home Skincare And Body Care Devices That Are Perfect For Your DIY Treatments

The pandemic (re)introduced us to high-tech beauty tools that are perfect for home use yet can match in-clinic results. Here are devices worth adding to your vanity area!

If there's anything the pandemic has taught many of us, it's that self-care is important now more than ever. Throughout the months we've been living under quarantine, especially at the height of the pandemic, many women have had to change their beauty routines and improvise with home-friendly alternatives to their regular beauty clinic visits.


During which time, while many businesses shut down, there was also a noticeable increase in the sales of not just health and wellness products but also at-home skincare devices that can match in-clinic results.


Cristina Yu is one of those women who were determined to not let the stress and anxiety that come with the global health crisis manifest in their skin and body. With her family stuck at home for months like the rest of us, they found themselves experimenting with DIY skin treatments until Cristina was led to scouring the Internet for at-home skincare devices that are effective and safe.  


That's when she discovered Silk'n, an internationally-acclaimed brand of professional aesthetic devices for home use. She then ordered its products and tested them herself. Impressed by the results they delivered, she thought, "Wow, this technology has to be shared. This can change the way we live!"

Cristina has always been interested in the beauty industry; she even used to operate a home spa. So, stumbling upon Silk'n was like a lightbulb moment for her. 


"When I tried these high-tech beauty tools that allowed me to have results that I would otherwise have to get through a clinic, I was very thrilled. Beauty treatments did not mean I would have to be away all the time. Whatever saves me time, money, and energy, I'm up for it," she tells Metro.Style


She put up The Skin Guru amidst the pandemic, securing the distributorship for Silk'n. Cristina shares, "Self-care and self-love are really important especially at this time. We have just started but I am seeing that consumers want to take care of themselves at home now more than ever."
