And if you follow her on Instagram, then you might guess what are we talking about- its Kourtney Kardashian led face mask.
This glowy face mask is the new talk of the town since she revealed her beauty secrets. Well, since then everyone wonders whether LED face masks really work or it has any beauty benefits or just another fake promise of cosmetic industry.
We are here to tell you what’s the secret behind the beauty secret of Kourtney. Stay tuned!
What Is LED Face Masks?
Lights have different effects on our skin, for instance, amber light improves the elasticity of the skin and boost collagen production. Similarly, red light reduces inflammation and blue is good for acne-removal.
LED face masks are light devices that have in-build LEDs that reflect different colours to give you skin benefits.
Are LED Face Masks Effective?
The moment masks were available on her website- Poosh, all masks were sold out. Maybe it’s work for real because Kourtney uses it so it must be good after all.
That’s what a buyer thinks but one should never forget that what works for one will surely work for them. And what seems good at first isn’t good always. By that we mean, these fancy masks are not free from side-effects.
However, experts say that they are safe to use only if the masks are FDA cleared. And talking about their efficiency, the in-home light therapy isn’t that effective as those you get at the dermatologist’s office.
But, those medical-grade light therapies are very costly so LED face masks are a better cheaper alternative.
Do They Have Any Side-Effects?
Yes, the blue and red lights are good and bad both. They can cause vision issues, eye-related disorders, and even permanent loss of vision in those with existing eye problems.
Even those with no eye-problems can complain about eye strain after wearing it for too long. Apart from eye strain, you may also feel mild headaches and face trouble sleeping.
These side-effects are mild in some cases but don’t avoid them and consult your doctor first before using such masks. And if you get the green signal from their side, buy an FDA approved LED face masks.
