High-tech beauty devices worth investing in
With most of us working from home, we'd be remissed not to take the opportunity to simulatenously beautify ourselves while answering emails from the couch.
And with our professional beauty treatments on hold 'til further notice, there’s no better time than right now to invest in at-home beauty gadgets that provide salon-quality results. And trust us, there are loads!
Whether it’s your laser hair removal, LED light therapies or pampering pedicures, here’s just a few gadgets to stay looking and feeling great in quarantine.

Then targeted tips give you the perfect combination of pressure and suction to extract gunk and blackheads for visibly minimized pores. WARNING: This tool is addictive! Remember, everything in moderation.

Dyson Corrale Straightener ($699, dyson.com.au)
Just when you thought Dyson couldn’t invent anything cooler after The Air Wrap, they just did. A world first in the hot tool category, say hello to the Dyson Corrale. Despite looking like a regular iron, this one is a lot more unique with flexing plate technology (yes the plates bend!) to help gather the hair, applying even heat and tension so your strands won’t be singed or flattened - mind blown. Also, one temperature doesn’t fit all, so they’ve made sure you can choose from three precise heat settings, which regulate 100 times a second. Oh and did we mention it’s cordless?! It’s a lot to take in but all we’ll say is run, don’t walk!
FOR YOUR FEET…
