Gold Standard: Skincare Goes Glam with Tatcha and Dr. Lancer

Tatcha Akami Gold Massager

Tatcha Akari Gold Massager

The beauty business is all about the latest and greatest, especially when it comes to skincare devices. One year editors and beauty junkies alike are obsessing over sonic cleansing and vibrating serum infusers and the next year we all find ourselves rolling medieval prickling rollers all over our faces. This year, the beauty world is going glam with gold devices, but it’s not all about the newest technology for everyone. At Tatcha, Vicki Tsai is bringing back her line’s cult-favorite massaging wand with an all new look and at Los Angeles’ favorite dermatologist, Dr. Lancer, an in-office treatment comes home with an all-gold device.

The Tatcha Akari Gold Massager ($195) is named for the Japanese word for light. And for good reason: the 24-karat gold leaf massager imparts a lit-from within glow when used to gently massage around the eye and all over the face. As with the entire Tatcha line, the Akari massager draws from the traditional geisha beauty ritual. They would use gemstones to massage their faces and the Akari Gold Massager gives you chance to bring the ritual of acupressure to your own vanity. Following the instructions on Tatcha’s website, you can de-puff your face, holds heat or cold and can aid in lymphatic drainage. It can also relieve tension and give your face a fresh glow with just a few swipes.

Available at Tatcha.

Lancer Microcurrent Power Boost

Lancer Microcurrent Power Boost

For a few years now, Angelenos have been flocking to Dr. Lancer to get a dose of his microcurrent treatment. It’s one of the greatest non-invasive treatments out on the market. Think of it as pilates for your facial muscles: a gentle electric current is used to stimulate the muscles of your face, giving you a more lifted and toned appearance.

The gold-plated Lancer Microcurrent Power Boost ($250) lets you bring the treatment home. The Microcurrent Power Boost’s pure germanium head harnesses the electricity that’s already in your skin and works with a gentle massage to stimulate the deepest layers of your skin. The result? Increased collagen production, increased production of new skin cells and a beautiful glow in just 10 minutes. Use it to tighten your contours and even down your neck to tighten up any problem areas. The best part? The results aren’t just cosmetic. With continued use, your facial muscles will stay tight and toned just like your core after those killer pilates classes.

Available at Nordstrom.
