These Microcurrent Skin Tools Give You a Facelift in Five Minutes
Believe the hype about microcurrent facials—the tiny electric currents travel beneath the surface of your skin to give the muscles underneath the equivalent of a session at Barry's Bootcamp, resulting in an instantly-lifted, toned appearance. The sensation it creates is more of a gentle tingle than an electrical shock, and with repeated sessions, you'll find your skin defying gravity a la Wicked the musical.
Sessions can be somewhat costly, as can the time you have to allot to wind down at the spa. Luckily, a handful of skincare brands have harnessed that microcurrent power, and streamlined it into hand-held tools you can use in your own bathroom.
We put together a list of the four best microcurrent facial tools on the market. Scroll down to shop each one now.
