Can You Prolong The Effect Of Cosmetic Facial Injectables

Can You Prolong The Effect Of Cosmetic Facial Injectables Barbies Beauty Bits

The legendary fountain of youth we are all dreaming about could well come inside a small syringe. Indeed, filler treatments like dermal fillers and botox are some of the most popular rejuvenating techniques on the market and some of the least intrusive too. Can you stop time? Hell, yes, you can, and you can even reverse it a little.

Unfortunately, it's no permanent anti-aging remedy, and the syringe-packed fountain of youth is short-lived. You may add a little volume here and there or correct those pesky frowning lines that tend to appear on the forehead, but you need to keep up with maintenance treatments to maintain your appearance.

As a rule of thumb, Botox clients tend to plan their appointment every 2 to 3 months, while dermal fillers last longer. Enthusiasts can often wait between 6 and 18 months (or sometimes even longer) between appointments.

The question everybody is asking is: How Can I Make Make Botox And Filler Results Last Longer?

Seek Reliable Cosmetic Injectables
Want to make your Botox or dermal filler last longer? Here's how you can achieve the best results and keep them for as long as possible. First you want to look for renowned products that are lasting and creating a natural-looking result. Some of the best facial injectable services prioritize brands such as Juvederm and Revanesse Versa, which have shown some of the most long-lasting results.

You may find cheap alternatives online, such as a salon that promises to do injectable treatments at a bargain cost or even black market injectables. Don't let price be a decisive factor. Specialist centers, board-certified plastic surgeons, and trained injectors will discuss these injectable fillers with you in person. Anything that is suspiciously low may put you at risk:

  • An untrained contractor may perform the cosmetic treatments
  • The products used are below standards
  • The products used may not be safe for injecting under your skin

Also an untrained injector can make other mistakes that can cause a frozen botox face along with other problems because of:

  • The wrong location of the injection
  • Incorrect injection dosage
  • Using the wrong type of neurotoxin or filler for your body type

Reduce Aging Routines At Home
Putting your skin under pressure can affect how your injectables look and feel in the long term. So, it's essential to reduce everyday habits that can speed up the aging process, dry out your skin and increase lines and wrinkle risks, such as:

  • Low humidity levels at home
  • Beddings that make you sweat all night
  • Sleeping on a cotton pillow
  • Hot showers
  • A high amount of particles in the indoor air
  • Over sun exposure
  • Over active athletic people will metabolize both toxin and filler more quickly

To prevent these issues that can lead to your injectable breaking down faster. It can be helpful to bring new elements to your home. For instance, an air moisture sensor and an air humidifier can tackle moisture levels. 

Poor bedding choices will increase skin dryness, fine lines, and wrinkles, so you want to look for top-quality cooling bedding. Along with an anti-aging pillow! And my favorite, an air purifier will be a neat addition to cleanse your indoor air and reduce the presence of harmful particles.

Improve Skin Health And Skincare
Injectables are under your skin, acting as facial volume pockets or soothing muscles, and they do not actively improve your skin health. So, it is essential to maintain your skincare routine, including sunscreen protection, moisturizing products, hyaluronic acids, and regular exfoliating.

Your diet can also boost skin health, especially food rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamin E, etc. And do not forgot to take some vitmains, like Zinc. Taking zinc supplements regularly after Botox treatment may prolong its anti-aging effects.

It may also, be a good idea to talk to your dermatologist about your diet and ask for recommendations.

Can cosmetic injectables last forever? Unfortunately, the answer is no. However, you can take preventive measures to keep them for a more extended period of time. From working with an expert to adopting skin-protecting routines, who says your syringed-based fountain of youth should disappear overnight?

Tips To Feel More Confident In The Summer

Tips To Feel More Confident In The Summer Barbies Beauty Bits

Every woman wants to feel and look her best, especially in the Summer. When you look good, you feel good, meaning you can look at the world with your chin up, so you brim with confidence.

Each woman has her own sense of what she thinks looks good and what does not. Regardless of the season, there are many ways to feel beautiful and body-confident.

From the clothes you wear, how you style your hair, to glowing summer skin, even how you present yourself to the world,  there is no end to what you can do to feel fantastic, look beautiful, and ooze confidence.

Let's look at just a few things women can do to feel beautiful and body confident this Summer.

Bikini Body Confidence
Even when you feel self-confident most of the time, Summer presents a self-esteem challenge with its demands for carefree body confidence. A whisper of the word "bikini," especially if you have lost weight or have a post-baby body, can trigger self-doubt. Because of this, many cannot relax and enjoy the beautiful things that Summer offers.

If you have a hang-up about how you look in a bathing suit speaking with an experienced Melbourne plastic surgeon can help you if you are looking for something like a post-baby breast augmentation. This procedure can restore fullness and youthful shape to your breasts! 

summer fashion tips barbies beauty bits

Buy Summer Clothes That Work For Your Body
Let's first start with swimwear. There are gorgeous swimsuits are out there, no matter your size. Highlight your best feature while minimizing areas you may not feel confident about.

I love what I call the Yacht suit, which is more of a black one-piece, dark glasses, and a wide-brim hat. My sister loves vintage-style swimsuits, or another love currently of mine is a high-waisted bikini bottom with fuller cupped bikini tops. All of these offer coverage.

And do not forget to accessorize with a cute bathing suit cover, a big floppy hat, and wide brim glasses.

Identify Your Summer Colors
Everyone has different tastes. Some women love plain, neutrals linens for Summer, while others prefer loud, bright, and vibrant flowy dresses. Whatever your favorite colors are, make sure you have them in your wardrobe.

If you have one green dress, you feel amazing every time you slip it on. Then maybe you need some more green in your collection. Many online articles will tell you which colors work best for various skin tones, hair colors, and complexions. However, ultimately, it comes down to how beautiful you feel in whatever you wear.

Summer Hair With Beachy Wave Curls
One of the best hairstyles for Summer is the Beachy wave curls. They are a go-to celebrity hairstyle and have been for a while, as they look great on virtually every one of all hair lengths, hair types, occasions, and ages.

However, mastering those loose beachy wave curls can be daunting. But no worries as there is a science to it. And once you get that down, you are on your way to looking and feeling confident with your new beach curls.

Get Summer Ready Skin With Dry Brushing
Dry brushing is a great way to get your body summer ready. And it has some other benefits other than the exterior. It is a terrific way to eliminate toxins and detoxify the body as it increases the blood circulation, stimulates the nervous system, unclogs your pores, and exfoliates your entire body. It is the perfect way to get summer-ready skin.

Be Confident And Smile
The old adage "when you smile, the world smiles back" still holds true. If you want to truly feel confident and beautiful, smile when you are out and about. When you look happy and secure, you will be greeted with smiles everywhere you go.

If the world smiles at you everywhere you go, you will quickly feel more confident and beautiful in yourself. Remember, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you genuinely want to feel beautiful, you need to see the beauty in yourself, be confident in yourself and be happy in your skin when you are out in the world.

Start Strengthening Those Muscles For Summer
Starting some strength training using your own body weight can make a big difference in a reasonably short time. One because it is super easy, so there are no excuses for not having the right workout equipment. And secondly, it is less about the number (how much you weighed or lost) and more about body shape.

Make sure if you want to slim down to create an energy deficit or a negative energy balance. 

tips to eating healthy this summer barbies beauty bits

Eat To Nourish Instead Of Restricting
I'm not a fan of the word diet. Eating healthy rather than some crazy fad diet is the key. Brain-friendly foods include coconut oil, oily fish, nuts, dark leafy greens and spices such as turmeric.

With these small, everyday changes, you can nurture a new voice within that speaks positively about the way you look. When you do this, your brain-body connection will become stronger and work for you rather than against you,allowing you to feel more confident this Summer.

Personal Affirmations To Feel More Confident
Sadly, we are our worst enemies when it comes to feeling good about ourselves. There's no magic wand you can wave that will make you feel 100% confident, but there are truths with realistic expectations.  So stop the stinkin, thinkin.

First stop with comparisons, especially with those seen on social media, TV, or celebs and models. Remind yourself that most of the time, they are airbrushed anyway!

Second, start with some daily affirmations. For example, if you are working out, do a happy I just finished working out dance.

If you are implementing a new skincare routine to help with your dry Summer skin, give yourself a double thumbs up after complementing.

You got your new bathing suit and cover-up. Do that movie star kiss and wave as you look gorgeous!

While these praises may seem petty to some, it is one of the most important things you can do to fire off a positive feeling that emphasizes an optimistic view, leading to a more happy, confident you this Summer.

Elegear Arc Chill- Best Cooling Bedding For Hot Sleepers

Elegear Arc-Chill- Best Cooling Bedding For Hot Sleepers, Barbies Beauty Bits

Cool bedding and cooling sheets for a hot sleeper, night sweats, or those with hot flashes? It sounds like a dream come true for those who are finding themselves in a sweaty pile of sheets in the middle of the night.

For me, this is not a problem, but my sister and boyfriend both run hot when sleeping, affecting me in my household. Hence I was on the search to stop fighting over the thermostat and found the hot sleepers solution, cooling bedding.

Feeling hot can also make it harder to sleep for those sleeping hot and sweaty. According to research, the ideal temperature for sleep is a bone-chilling 65 degrees Fahrenheit, or as I joke with my boyfriend, it feels like a morgue in here.

There’s good news, though! You can quickly fix an overheated environment with just a few adjustments to your sleeping situation, such as naturally cooling bedding, which helps you sleep cooler and stay cool to the touch. See the details below on the best bedding for hot sleepers.

How Does Cooling Bedding Work, Barbies Beauty Bits

How Does Cooling Bedding Work
If you’ve never heard of cooling blankets, you’re in for a treat. Unlike heated blankets, cooling blankets are made for the hot sleeper type. High-quality cooling bedding uses advanced cooling technology and wicks away moisture, providing the chill you need to beat the heat!

To best understand how cooling bedding works, let's look at what happens with our bodies while we sleep.

Our bodies release heat into our mattresses and bedding during sleep, significantly warming the entire bedding area. A problem with some mattresses and bedding is that they trap this heat and moisture rather than allowing it to escape. The result is a night of tossing and turning in the bed, like a sauna or a night in hell, as my sister will attest.

Since most of us can't afford to purchase a temperature-regulated mattress designed to keep us cool, cooling blankets can be better for a cooler night's sleep. Cooling blankets use special fabrics to wick away the moisture. And thermal conduction takes care of the natural body heat that may get trapped.

Elegear Arc-Chill Cool Bedding Review, Barbies Beauty Bits


Say Hello To The Coolest Sleep Ever With Elegear arc-chill
The best cooling bedding is made of breathable materials, meaning they’re not insulating your body’s heat. The Elegear arc-chill cooling bedding products are made of Japanese Arc-chill Cool Technology Fabric on the Top Side, With a Cool-sensing Value (Q-max) of More Than 0.45.

Arc-Chill products are divided into 5 cooling levels according to different Q-Max values. Q-Max is the peak value of heat flux which flows out of a copper plate having a finite amount of heat into surface of fabric after the plate contacts the fabric surface.

Elegear arc-Chill bedding makes it easier for your body’s heat to move while absorbing or wicking away any moisture so that you can tuck in at night without feeling too hot, reducing skin temperature by about 35 to 41°F. This blanket makes you cool and comfortable without perspiration. You wake rested, refreshed, and comfortably dry — no sticky feeling!

Treat yourself to a night of comfort with  Elegear arc-chill cooling quilts, blankets, and pillowcases!

Best Comforter For Hot Sleepers
Yes, I would tell my sister if you're hot do not sleep with a comforter as that sounds counterintuitive for when you're trying to cool down! But an Elegear arc-chill comforter is not your average comforter, and it's made for staying cool all night with its Cool Technology Fabric to manage heat and prevent moisture buildup. 

Cozying up with a quilt is such a sleeping luxury and with the cooling effect you will be on cloud nine with this Elegear cooling bed comforter!

Developed with a super soft knitted fabric filled with DARCON fibers to form a 3D hollow structure with high elasticity and compression, giving you a super-fluffy feeling while sleeping.

The ergonomic stitching design of this cooling quilt fits your body curve perfectly. It comforts your body with a gentle hug, reduces stress and anxiety, and helps you relax and go to sleep faster.

THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION TO A FULL NIGHT’S REST: If you are a hot sleeper or suffering from night sweats, you do not want to miss out on the cooling comforter.

You can take your pick of anything from pastel to a pinstripe gray. And they come in all sizes. So even the kids can enjoy a cool nights sleep. 


Best Cooling Blanket For Hot Sleepers, Barbies Beauty Bits

Best Cooling Blanket
All hot sleepers or in my case our cats need a cool, breathable blanket that still feels soft and cozy, and this blanket does the job.It is double-sided, made of extra-soft fibers, and offers breathable insulation.

One side of this Elegear cooling blanket is made with 80% mica nylon and 20% PE cool fabric. The other side features natural 100% cotton on the bottom inside—no wonder this blanket feels so lovely against your skin.
These Elegear arc-chill cooling blankets are available in eight gorgeous colors and full, queen, and king sizes. So something for everyone and every decor!

Best Cooling Pillowcases For Anti-aging And The Hot Sleeper
These Elegear pillow covers offer a double-sided design. Silky and cool, the fabric on one side of this set uses Japanese Arc-Chill cooling technology. While the other side is 100% cotton fabric, that is comfortable and soft, suitable for spring, autumn, and winter.

On top of this, these pillowcases are very easy to clean. Simply toss them in the washing machine in a laundry net to prevent entanglement during washing.

Getting Enough Beauty Sleep
When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Our skin  repairs itself and recovers while you sleep, which is why night time skincare is essential. The key is to get enough shut-eye -- 7 to 9 quality hours each night. If you’re getting fewer than 6 hours because you're too hot, it’s likely affecting the appearance of your skin.

Our skin makes new collagen while we sleep, preventing sagging, which is part of the repair process. More collagen means your complexion will be plumper and less likely to wrinkle.

Only getting 5 hours a night can lead to twice as many fine lines as sleeping seven would. It also leaves skin drier, which can make lines more visible!

The Perfect Anti-aging Sleeping Duo
The Pillow & The Pillowcase

I so love the silky feeling of the Elegear arc-chill pillowcase and use it with my Sleep And Glow anti-aging pillow for my beauty sleep. I used to use sateen sheets or tencel sheets, but they were too hot for my boyfriend. But not this anti-aging duo!

First, the Sleep&Glow Omnia pillow preserves the skin's youthfulness as it reduces contact between your face and the pillow's surface, thanks to special cradles for sleeping on your side. This means you won’t be plagued by sleep wrinkles, and your skin will stay smooth all night.

Combine that with the deep-pocket cooling pillowcases as another bonus of Elegear arc-chill cooling pillowcases is they can also help reduce facial wrinkles.WHAT??? (Now that is what I call wrinkle resistant). Yep, they can reduce friction by 40% on average, and friction causes facial folds in the skin. (like the photo). Have less friction, and you are on your way to a more youthful complexion.

And beauties, it doesn't stop there. The smooth, tightly woven fabric also seals in your skin's moisture. Compared to linen sheets, bamboo sheets, or organic cotton pillowcases, which absorbs most of the moisture in your face!

To Sum It Up
If your sleep cycle is less than ideal, you can wake with skin imbalances, dehydration, redness, wrinkles, and even breakouts. But it’s not just about the quantity of sleep you get each night. It’s also about the quality.

And while my boyfriend (or cats, for that matter) don't care much about the anti-aging benefits of a great night's sleep, I do, which is why we both love the soft and comfortable Elegear arc-chill bedding products. And you can, too; with tons of Amazon reviews, the Elegear arc-chill brand is an Amazon favorite for those shopping for cooling sheets, cooling blankets, cooling comforters, and more.

Discount Codes

To ensure you don't have to worry about cost, I'm am giving you the chance to enjoy some high end sleep products at a discount. Yes, we know everyone likes a deal and I was able to extend some discounts to my readers, so you to can get the best nights sleep ever!

Self-Care: Five Ways To Take Better Care Of Yourself

Self-Care: Five Ways To Take Better Care Of Yourself, Barbie's Beauty Bits

A self-care plan- with five ways to take better care of yourself? I do not know if I have time for one, let alone five, Miss Barbie's Beauty Bits.

I get it; life can be stressful and downright hectic, whether the stress of your job, honey-dos, or running the kids to every activity in the world. Many do not add me time to the to-do list. Primarily, I see this because many feel guilty about self-care. But the truth is, if you do not take care of yourself, you are worthless to others.

Statistics demonstrate that self-care promotes positive health outcomes, including resilience, longevity, and more effective stress management. So toss that ignorant thought that self-care is vanity, as self-care is SANITY! Read more below on this.

Self-care Is Not Vanity It Is Sanity
First, let's clear up one common misconception: Self-care does not mean self-indulgence, vanity, or selfishness.

A self-care routine means taking care of yourself so that you can be healthy. From physically and mentally to managing stress, to lower blood pressure, self-care for anxiety, and even the hours of sleep. The health benefits will not only allow you to succeed at work and care for others but basically live.

You're right if you think you've heard more about self-care. One indicator: According to Google Trends, the number of searches for "self-care" is around 2,930,000,000.

The need for self-care is more prevalent than ever, especially with the shit show world we live in. We need to be able to cope with everyday life and stress, and maintaining self-care will get you there. And I am here to help with my top 5 ways to better care for yourself.  

self care is not selfish, barbies beauty bits

When It Comes To Self-care Change, Tiny Is The All Mighty
The key to an effective care routine is to crawl, walk, run, as you do not want to stress yourself out, trying to de-stress. When we conquer each small step, these small behaviors will become a long-term habit before you even know it. You don't have to take my word for it, though.

I am the forever Sheldon (from Big Bang Theory), as my friends call me, and I am always open to learning, which is precisely what I did with the help of Pila, from Heaven On Earth Day Spa when she shared The Small Changes with me That Change Everything.

 I learned that creating easy self-care habits can be fun if done correctly. And what better what to kick off summer than creating easy, fun, small habits that stick early on that will allow you to feel great about yourself.

The Ultimate Self Care Routine

Getting Enough Sleep For Self-care
Anti-anxiety deep sleep tips

I'm starting here to show you that you can take any new self-care habit and dial it back, so it is super tiny. It is like planting a seed that will blossom into something big. But aside from being small, it needs to be something realistic, and you like. No matter how small or significant, you will not do it if you hate it.


An example of getting enough sleep is to realize and not stress over the fact you can't always control the factors that interfere with your sleep. However, you can adopt habits that encourage better sleep. When you reduce that stress with acceptance, you will start to sleep better.

Once you got that down, try some of these for getting enough sleep for self-care:

  • Stick to a sleep schedule
  • Create a restful environment
  • Turn off electronics and blue light
  • Sleep with an anti-aging pillow

Eating Healthy For Self-care
Eating healthy is one of the most fundamental things that many overlook. It is simple to pick up food to go because it is quick.

But have you ever looked at the price? Holy crap, it is not what it used to be, and let's not forget how unhealthy. Even the so-called healthy items are filled with sodium, leading to heart disease.

The truth is we are what we eat. Aside from the obvious issues of unhealthy foods eating healthy for self-care can also keep our minds working and alert.

For example, research shows eating healthy foods can help reduce the risks of short-term memory loss and inflammation, which can have long-term effects on the brain and, in turn, the rest of the body.

And guess what, aside from the mental health of the body. Eating healthy can create other improvements like your skin looking and feeling better, which is why I love making anti-aging smoothies. And beauties, it is not that hard. All you need is the right blender, and I love the Cocinare Personal Blender for Smoothies; it is the best smoothie blender on Amazon.

The key is understanding what healthy foods work best! Here are some smoothie ingredients to slow aging and their benefits.

  • Blueberries: High in antioxidants & contain vitamin C, which aids in collagen production
  • Strawberries: High in vitamin C, which is good for your skin as it fights off free radicals
  • Avocados: One of the best food sources of omega-3 fatty acids. high in vitamin E, which helps improve skin texture
  • Leafy Greens: Kale and spinach contain vitamins A, C, and K—which work together to help your skin enhance its radiance
  • And do not forget the ALMOND MILK! Almonds contain linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that helps prevent skin dryness.

Tips to eating healthy for self care, barbies beauty bits

Include Exercise As Part Of Your Self-care Routine
I know you are thinking, how the heck do I have time to workout, Miss Barbie? But again, it is all baby steps. For instance, park further away instead of parking close to the door. Or take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Or, if possible, why not use part of your lunchtime to enjoy the outdoors? Researchers have found that spending time outside can reduce fatigue, thereby improving symptoms of depression and burnout. While these may seem minor, they can make a difference in you feeling good if you do them daily.

Another thing to consider if going to the gym is out of the question is some online workouts. I a series I love is from Chloe Ting, and the best part is the exercises are only about 15 minutes, using your own body weight, so no dumbbells are needed. And yes, they make a big difference.

Spa Time For Self-care
There is nothing like a day of pampering. Whether it's a stress-relieving massage, an uplifting facial, a hair blowout, or a relaxing spa treatment, these are a must for the ultimate self-care practices.

However, a spa-day spoil outside the home can be difficult for many of us! But no worries, as there are numerous things you can do to create the ultimate at-home spa treatment. See some of my favorites below: 

And beauties, while skincare can seem daunting, it doesn't have to be. There are many places online, Barbie's Beauty Bits, of course, and some other well-known websites like CleverlyBeauty-a hub for women who want help with their beauty routines.

So there you have it, Barbie's Beauty Bits Five Ways to Take Better Care of Yourself! By implementing some of these self-care tips, you will ultimately be taking good care of your body, immune system, and mental and emotional health of the mind and body.

Beauty Problems Women Face And Tips To Treat Them

Top Beauty Problems Women Face And Tips To Treat Them, Barbies Beauty Bits

Do you have Eczema, spider veins, patchy hair loss, adult acne, or stained teeth that are killing your self-confidence? Regardless of what beauty issue you are experiencing, there are always solutions worth considering, like these ten beauty problems many women face and tips to treat them.

Selfcare Is Not Vanity It Is Sanity

I am bringing this up first as I do not know why people find it OK to shame those who want to take better care of themselves. Although we know true beauty comes from within, this does not mean we should feel guilty for wanting to look our best. Vanity is too often mistaken for self-love.

The truth is that our looks and what we put out into the world can alter how we feel on the inside. A few simple self-care approaches can go a long way toward improving your self-esteem, especially when you don't feel like yourself.

Taking time to care for YOU can be therapeutic and change your overall aura and how you feel about yourself. Aesthetic self-care is NOT vain; this is why I am such a fan of the Look Good Feel Better Program!

So without further ado, here are some easy self-care and beauty tips to help brighten your day - no matter the challenges you face.

Help I Have Eczema
Eczema can be a frustrating skin condition, whether you get it a few times a year or deal with it daily. While it is essential to work closing with a physician, there are some things you can do at home to control the itch and rash, as Eczema is easier to manage than cure.

Here are some tips from WebMD

  • Stay away from scented laundry detergent or fabric softener
  • Take lukewarm (not hot) showers or baths for no more than 10 or 15 minutes to prevent dry skin
  • Add colloidal oatmeal to the bath or as a paste on your skin
  • Add apple cider vinegar to bath water
  • Use mild soaps or body cleansers
  • Moisturize your skin twice a day
  • Apply coconut oil to damp skin daily

Tips To Help With Dandruff
Dandruff, characterized by itchy, white flakes of skin on your scalp, can affect some confidence as it can be embarrassing to deal with. But don't fret, as it is common and is easy to treat.

One of the first options worth exploring is whether you should consider changing the hair treatment products. Look at the ingredients as there are some, like parabens, sulfates, and other synthetic ingredients used as preservatives that can irritate the scalp and cause dry hair.

Suppose it is something more severe, like a side effect of medication. Dry scalp daily shampoo is often going to be one of the best ways to keep this issue under control and ensure that it doesn't continue to kill your confidence levels.

The Tress Wellness waxing kit includes hard wax beans, which grip the hair, not your skin. That means smooth skin with less pain than other kinds of waxing.

If waxing is not your thing, there are also some fantastic handheld IPL machines you can use to help with ingrown hairs and remove body hair. Just stick with devices with FDA clearance, safety features, and customer recommendations.

Banish Those Dark Under Eye Circles
Dark circles can make you appear sleep-deprived, even after a great night's sleep. To treat, you need to know some of the causes aside from actual fatigue. This can include allergies and aging as the undereye skin is very delicate and thin. This thinning of skin and loss of fat and collagen allows the reddish-blue blood vessels under your eyes to show through.

Solution:
First, ask your doctor if the problem could be due to allergies. If this is not the cause, you can do some things at home to help. 

  • Cover the dark circles with makeup
  • Apply a cool compress, like a spoon or gel sleeping masks
  • Change up your bedding by sleeping on silk pillowcases
  • Add eye creams with caffeine to your skincare routine to shrink the blood vessels
  • Invest in a skincare fridge to cool eye products
  • Speak with an aesthetician about undereye injectables and some new chemical peeling for the eye area

The Best At-Home LED Red Light Therapy Masks

The Best At-Home LED Red Light Therapy Masks, By Barbies Beauty Bits

Unless you've been living under a rock, you have seen the crazy-looking futuristic red light LED facial masks all over Instagram and TikTok. And may be wondering, do these work, what are the best at-home red light LED devices, and how does red light therapy work anyway?

According to board-certified dermatologists, these LED light masks offer significant skincare benefits aside from being one of the latest celebrity-loved social trends and looking like Mr. Roboto or a stormtrooper from Star Wars.

While these masks may be new in the at-home realm, red and blue light therapy devices for skincare are nothing new. Dermatologists and aestheticians have been using these devices for years to treat inflammation after facials, minimize breakouts, and renew your complexion on a cellular level.

However, these in-office treatments have a high price tag of $300 per session.

Today you can purchase these devices and use them at home, like these two devices—one for the face and one for the neck and decolletage from CurrentBody Skin.

The brand has combined ten years of industry knowledge and expertise to create the Best LED Light Therapy Masks that deliver the perfect dose of red and near infra-red light.

The convenience of improving your skin in the comfort of your own home is a significant selling point, and let's not forget about saving money from seeing an aesthetician for numerous office visits. 

  • But do these at-home LED light therapy masks actually work?
  • What are the benefits of LED Red Light?
  • Who sells the best-LED red light therapy mask?
  • How much do these LED masks cost?
  • And, What the heck is LED light therapy?

Well, no worries, beauties, as Barbie's Beauty Bits is here to answer all of those questions.

Do At-Home LED Masks Really Work, Barbies Beauty Bits

Do At-Home LED Masks Really Work?
Yes, LED light therapy really does work! NASA has used this FDA-approved therapeutic LED technology for plant growth tests on shuttle missions.

But regarding the skincare realm, don't just take my word, for instance. In a study published in Dermatologic Surgery, researchers found that red LED light treatment improved measures of eye-area wrinkles.

However, from my experience speaking with Dermatologists, it is essential to look at the NM (nanometers) for light-Emitting Devices for Treating Wrinkles when purchasing a device, as all are not created equal. Wavelengths of light from 630 to 680 nm demonstrate the most healing power.

What Is LED Light Therapy For The Skin
Not to get too technical, but LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Unlike some other wavelengths, these wavelengths are absorbed into the skin, where they can heat and constructively impact the cellular process to target problem skin areas.

This burst of energy triggers a response for your body, healing your skin from the inside out as your skin cells soak up the red light, resulting in cellular energy and collagen production.

The elevated collagen and elastin production and hydration activated by red light therapy create an increased immune response, diminishing signs of aging.

And no worries, unlike sun rays, there are no harmful side effects or UV elements. Instead, red light therapy uses light energy which cannot ionize the cells and will not cause them to alter, mutate or change; it is a non-evasive anti-aging treatment that you can enjoy in the comfort of your home.

Scientific Benefits Of LED Light Therapy For Anti-aging

We at Barbie's Beauty Bits are a big fan of LED therapies because they work from skincare to red light treatment for weight loss and full body treatments. From handheld devices to facial and neck devices, they are a must for younger-looking skin (even some other light settings like blue led lights).

While skincare creams and red light therapy can improve some facial skin conditions and take years off your face, red light is more effective for anti-aging. It stimulates energy within skin cells helping with facial rejuvenation. Unfortunately, creams and lotions lack this ability.

Cells become larger with age, making it harder for them to divide and multiply, slowing body regeneration. Using red light therapy stimulates and energizes your skin cells, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and your skin’s texture.

And red light therapy using (625-740nm) stimulates collagen growth, helping to reduce anti-aging by...

  •     Stimulating fibroblasts and collagen production
  •     Minimizing fine lines by increasing elastin and firmness
  •     Restoring your skin to a firmer, smoother texture
  •     Increasing hydration
  •     Improving cellular renewal to help repair sun damage
  •     It kills bacteria, reduces inflammation, minimizes acne flare-ups
  •     Cellular energy increases, diminishing the appearance of melasma (dark spots)
  •     Reducing inflammation, puffiness, or swelling around the eyes
  •     The anti-inflammatory qualities of red light can reduce the appearance of visible broken capillaries  (what I need)
CurrentBody Skin Complete LED Kit Review, Barbies Beauty Bits

A Breakthrough In LED Facial Therapy-CurrentBody Skin Complete LED Kit
Okay, now that you understand how this LED light technology works, along with some backed by scientific results. Which at-home LED device do you use? Remember, not all at-home devices deliver the same strength, so be careful for some of those found on Amazon, as they are not always high quality and can be dangerous for the eyes.

I love the CurrentBody Skin Complete LED Kit, which includes the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask and the CurrentBody Skin Neck & Dec Perfector.

Forget about your expensive salon visits and harness the perfect nanometers to rejuvenate the skin with these two professional red light therapy devices from CurrentBody Skin. They have your face, neck, and decolletage covered!

The Benefits Of Using Both Red And Near Infra Red Light In Skincare

Both LED devices combine Red (633nm) and Near Infra-Red Light (830nm). Clinical studies show the combination of these two wavelengths work below the skin's surface to stimulate the natural rejuvenation process. This process is what kick-starts collagen and elastin production, and continued use will firm and smooth your skin.

So why both? There are a lot of light therapy devices on the market, and most only use red light, which targets the epidermis. While you will see anti-aging benefits from red light alone. When paired, red and near infra-red are the power couple offering ultra-powerful and proven light therapy treatment for plump, smooth, and even-toned skin that looks younger as the infrared light penetrates more deeply.

Beauty spas take advantage of the anti-aging benefits of red and near-infra red light. So if you are looking for spa-like results in your home, you need to make sure you use a LED skincare device that incorporates red and near-infrared led lights.

See the low down on these two devices below.

The Best LED Face Mask For Younger Looking Skin, Barbies Beauty Bits

The Best LED Face Mask For Younger Looking Skin
Because our skin becomes thinner and drier as we age due to collagen and elastin loss, it will leave us with an uneven skin tone. And this rough-textured skin is what will develop wrinkles!  

While these wrinkles will make us look older, the crown-wearing culprit of premature aging is uneven skin tone, like hyperpigmentation, saggy, crepey skin, sun damage, etc.

The CurrentBody Skin LED Mask uses its two light technologies to plump, firm, heal, resurface, and tone that uneven skin and texture! These processes also help the skin cells absorb your topical skincare product effectively to rebuild the damage caused by the aging process-See how this cycle works?

What Do I Like About This Medical-Grade LED Face Mask?
Aside from the noticeable results, I like this device over other LED Masks I have tried because it is flexible and easy to wear. I do not know how often I feel stuck charging my skincare devices at my desk, as most have to be plugged into a USB to work.

Not this LED face mask, as it is comfortable and convenient! It comes with a portal charger made with fully medical-grade flexible silicone that contours to your face, sitting directly on the skin for optimal results. It also has an adjuster on the back of the head, so it is hands-free, and you can do something else while your skin gets healthier.

Lastly, the mask has been made to medical device directives and delivers the same clinically-proven wavelengths as professional salon machines, but in the comfort of your home. (remember, I said this was important earlier).

Led Light Therapy Neck Device
Sagging, loose neck aka Turkey neck is for the birds. But all kidding aside, skincare for our neck is often an afterthought, and many even go as far as to wipe off the access skincare onto the towel. Instead of extending our skincare to the neck, WTH? I've been guilty of it myself.

But did you know that the skin on the neck is very thin, so it will show signs of aging, especially from sun and environmental exposures much faster than other areas of the body. Tie that in with the downward gauge technology (spending hours upon hours hunched looking down from posting on social media to reading emails and texting), people are aging more quickly than in years past.

Unfortunately, this constant downward gaze is another prominent cause for premature aging with creases around the neck and chin, wrinkles, loss of elastin, sagging neck skin, and more. But the good news is there is something you can do to address these aging issues; Current Body Skin LED Neck & Dec Perfector.

With the LED Neck & Dec Perfector, red and near-infrared LEDs work together to create a more powerful effect. The epidermis absorbs these two lights stimulating collagen production, so you get more profound results in a shorter period. 

Its design brings light directly to the neck and upper chest area ensuring the maximum amount of light reaches its cellular targets, softening the more delicate skin of the décolletage and neck, improving the tone and texture, and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.

To Sum It Up
LED light therapy at home could be the answer if you want to restore your youthful glow without breaking the bank and having to spend money on Botox and other spa treatments.

And remember, the key to success with at-home skincare devices and treatments is consistency, with slow and steady, winning the race.

Like a salon, where you would need multiple visits early on and then cut back, you need the same approach when using these devices in the comfort of your home. For example, use the LED therapy masks for 10 minutes a day, 3-5 times a week for the first four weeks.

Then after the initial LED light therapy treatment course, you need to complete your LED at-home treatments for maintenance when you feel your skin needs an extra boost.

So what are you waiting for beauties, are you ready to try the best at-home LED red light therapy masks for that Hollywood glow? These masks are loved by famous faces like makeup artist Wayne Goss, Nina Garcia, Kaley Cuoco, Carey Mulligan, and now YOU because it just works.
