While they look a little Hannibal Lecter, LED/light therapy face masks offer a tonne of benefits depending on the wavelengths used, including anti-ageing, pore-shrinking, and even acne-busting results.
Despite their vibrant glow, LED masks are totally safe and free from UV rays, typically boasting a blue light setting to bust acne-forming bacteria and decrease oil production, and red light to deeply penetrate the skin in order to reduce inflammation and increase collagen production (and, often, a setting to blend both wavelengths).
If you’re interested in incorporating an LED facial mask into your skincare routine, we’ve picked six products you can shop on Amazon now to add a little light to your beauty regime.
