This Beauty Tech Could Be Your Best 'Skinvestment' Yet

• 08 July 2024

( skin-vest-ment ) noun.

The act of investing time and money into healthy, glowing skin.


In a world where self-care has become as routine as brushing your teeth, there’s one investment that gives you invaluable returns: your skin. Going beyond aesthetics, caring for your skin is arguably necessary to your overall wellness. Because let’s be honest, when we have good (glowing) skin we also get a big boost in confidence. So really, you could consider “skinvestesting” as your most important self-care practice yet (second to brushing your teeth, of course).


Is it better to invest in skincare or makeup?

A good skincare routine can improve more than makeup can cover. No matter how good your concealer may be, it still won’t be able to smooth out texture, shrink pores or soothe dry patches. And if you want a natural lit-from-within glow (sans highlighter) then skincare is definitely the way to go.

Take a look at Hollywood; Pamela Anderson embraced a no-makeup look at last year’s NYFW, while Anne Hathaway looks like she hasn't aged a day past 30. So what’s their skincare secret?

London aesthetics doctor, Dr. Jonny Betteridge shares his professional insights on how these stars—Hathaway, in particular—might’ve retained their naturally glowing, youthful complexions. “Having a good diet and maintaining a healthy weight obviously helps, but her skincare routine may also be enhanced with skin boosters; Profhilo Botox, LED light therapy, laser treatments and maybe some subtle ‘tweakments’ with dermal filler.”

Many other injectors and skincare experts have also speculated that these fresh-faced (and seemingly age-defying) stars must be investing in more than just expensive skin creams.

What are the best skincare investments?

As mentioned by Dr. Betteridge, LED light therapy is what will give your skin that elasticity, bounce and plumpness—essentially the building blocks for younger skin. And if we’re channelling the skincare regimens of mega stars Serena Williams and Kim Kardashian, then using a clinic-grade LED face mask at home is a must.

LED therapy is widely used in clinics for a range of skin concerns; including melasma, redness and irritation. And you can get a hold of this exact same technology (and device) used by Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams, Dakota Johnson, Halle Berry and Suki Waterhouse. Arguably, it’s the best skincare investment for future-proofing your skin against the visible signs of ageing.

Keep your skin healthy with LED face mask sessions 3 to 5 times a week, and for an extra oomph, treat yourself to a monthly in-clinic facial. Dr. Ayah, aesthetics doctor in London’s Harley Street, sums it up beautifully; “At home LED devices are fantastic at supporting what we do in-clinic, and they really do enhance the results.”
