Whether you’re one for fancy facial treatments or not, chances are you’ve seen LED light masks or skin treatments flood your social media accounts. With at-home skin treatments being the “new” normal, people are turning to things like LED skin therapy to target many, if not all, of their skincare woes. For a while, an LED light treatment was something you could only get at the hand’s of a board-certified dertmatologist’s office. Today, these exact same treatments are a luxury you can treat yourself to right at home without the help of a professional. You can light up your skin (literally) as you WFH, binge-watch your favorite shows on Netflix, whip up your favorite meal, etc. Consumers, dermatologists, estheticians, and other skin pros agree that these skin treatments actually work and are totally safe—in fact, some are even FDA-cleared. Ahead, we rounded up some of our favorite at-home LED treatments for brighter, radiant, and healthy skin for you to try. Trust us, they’re worth the hype.
What if we told you that you could have brighter skin in just three minutes? Well, that’s the truth with this viral Dr. Dennis Gross mask.
