Let’s face it, we’ve all woken up in the morning and been like “WTF happened to my face!?” I know I have at least. Whether it’s the sodium from the sushi I ate the night before, or if I had one too many espresso martinis at dinner, the puffiness in my face shows all the evidence.
I’ve tried ice rollers, gua sha tools, and everything you can think of to get my face back to its more chiseled natural state. And as I’m itching closer to my 30s, anti-aging tools and treatments have peaked my interest. That’s why I love the NuFACE Trinity Facial Sculpting Device.
It feels like a new and buzzy beauty product drops every second—literally. But, there are a few superstars that tend to stand out from the crowd, and this is one of them. Let me be clear—it’s not new. But it’s gained tons of popularity thanks to TikTok for its firming and lifting powers.
The NuFACE is a microcurrent-powered tool that lifts, contours, and can even help improve your overall skin tone. All you have to do is apply the hydrating gel that comes with the device and get to sculpting. The NuFACE operates on three different intensity levels, and while it’s not painful, you can feel it doing its thing to get you snatched.
The brand suggests using it five days a week for the first 60 days for at least five to 20 minutes on each area you want to focus on. After that time’s up, you can cut down to two to three times per week. So, whether you want to get Bella Hadid level cheekbones, a jawline sharper than a knife, or a tighter neck after all that texting and scrolling you’ve been doing, it can help.
And, don’t get me wrong, I love getting a little Botox here and there, but having a daily maintenance tool on hand is the icing on the cake. For extra firming power, you can also add in the NuFACE Silk Creme Activator, as a post-sculpting session moisturizer. Since NuFACE has updated the Trinity in the past, we’re sure that this won’t be the last version we see of it either.
It’ll cost you a pretty penny, though. The kit including the device, primer, charger, and holding stand retails for $339 on Amazon. But, compared to the price of injectables, which can cost you an upwards of $1,000, we’d say it’s worth it.
So, instead of freaking out the next time (or first time!) you spot a wrinkle or crease on your forehead, under eye area, or around your mouth, consider easing those nerves with the contouring powers of the NuFACE Trinity. It’ll get you looking like a newborn in just two months time.
Unfortunately, we’re all getting, like, older and grosser. That means we need tone it back on taking care of zits (well, some of us) and start taking care of potential wrinkles—which is literally so depressing. When did this happen? We used to be carefree! Sleeping in makeup! Smoking but telling everyone we didn’t! Eating like shit! Oh, how the tables have turned.
But before you give in to the Grim Reaper and literally die because hitting 30 is going to cause you to spiral into a deep depression, do yourself a favor and find some face treatments and creams that are way better at keeping nature at bay than you thought possible. Like, not only will they make you probs hotter, but they’ll help prevent wrinkles down the line, too. Bless.
1. Clinique Superdefense Age Defense Eye Cream SPF 20
Not too heavy to fuck up your makeup; not too light that it does literally nothing. Your eyes will be brightened and protected from the evil sun and wrinkles in general. The skin around your eyes is the thinnest of your entire bod (ew), so protect it and shit.
2. Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream
Smells like a spa, makes your skin super soft, and the hyaluronic acid actually PULLS moisture into your skin. Moist (sry) skin doesn’t wrinkle as easily, friends.
3. Coppertone ClearlySheer Faces for Sunny Days Broad Spectrum
LITERALLY this is the most important if you want to keep the crow’s feet and bullshit at bay. Slather on a good sunscreen during the summer months, regardless of how long you plan to be outside. Coppertone is a solid standby, and it’s silky enough to wear every day without making you feel like you’re six again and mom is slathering you with zinc before you head out to the beach.
4. Clarins Multi-Active Nuit
Clarins is a great choice for those of us who are super stressed and don’t get much sleep … so, everyone reading this, I assume. The texture isn’t greasy or gross AND it goes on smooth enough that you can put makeup on top of it. The organic California Poppy extract and shea butter both add tons of moisture, making this night cream a great option for those who aren’t ready to buy anything with the word “wrinkle” in the name.
5. Skinceuticals CE Ferulic Serum
Serums mean good protection against free radicals (i.e. the disgustingly polluted air), which contribute to zits, aging, and general dullness. Gag. Adding a serum to your routine will help offset what nature wants to do to your face.
6. Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
Fun fact: One of the best things you can do to prevent wrinkles is to wash your fucking face. Free radicals and makeup particles can actually sit on your skin and age it. So, making sure you get alllllll that shit off is SUPER important.
7. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Smooth & Flawless Peel + Moisturize
At the end of the day. nothing feels better than scrubbing the pain … er.. wrinkles away. Exfoliating a few times a week or using an acid peel can do wonders for your skin. Dr. Dennis has a fantastic formula that you only need to use once a week and follow up with some GOOD fucking moisturizer.
