Anyone who’s ever laid eyes on Kate Hudson can see that she clearly inherited some fantastic anti-aging genes from her mother, the fabulous Goldie Hawn. But even with that stellar genetic material as a foundation, Hudson still has a few tricks up her sleeve to keep her looking fresh-faced. She showed off one of them, the NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device ($243.75, originally $325), SkinStore), in a recent Instagram story, during what she dubbed “Self-Care Sunday.”
In this video, Hudson can be seen moving the tool around her bare face. “It’s telling my muscles to get stronger, and to tighten,” she said to the camera.
Essentially, this tool mimics a microcurrent facial: a trend behind some of Hollywood’s hottest faces. Beloved by A-listers including Jennifer Lopez, Charlize Theron, Meryl Streep, microcurrent facials deliver tiny electrical currents to the muscles underneath skin, toning and firming them for a more sculpted look. (So long, saggy jowls!)
While the stars may opt for pricey spa microfacials, the NuFACE offers a faster and much more affordable way to take advantage of this technology at home — and Hudson is a fan. The 40-year-old mother of three has never looked better, and now her secret is can be yours!
The NuFACE Trinity device comes with a kit that includes a charging cradle and power adaptor, the toning attachment, and a two-ounce tube of gel primer. To give yourself a five-minute facial, make sure the device is charged up and and the toning head is attached. Then simply wash your face, apply the primer, switch the Trinity on, glide it over your face (and neck, too!) and remove the primer with a soft, damp cloth.
Sound too good to be true? Science says it works: A clinical study found that 85 percent of users saw improvement in their facial contours after 60 days of using it for five minutes a day, every day. Eighty percent said their skin felt smoother, and 77 percent felt their face looked more toned.
Reviewers rave about it, too. “This device is my favorite part of my routine. … I recommend [taking] lots and lots of before and after pictures. Although it was subtle for me, I did see a difference after just one use. Even better though, is the difference [after] two weeks; it’s so noticeable. My friends even noticed! I seriously love my NuFACE.”
We may not all have access to Kate Hudson’s genes, but we can use her fave skincare tools!
