Complying with social distancing guidelines, many of us (myself included) are using this unforeseen time at home to indulge in self-care — and that includes face masks.
Taking the face masking game to new heights is none other than Chrissy Teigen. On Sunday, the 34-year-old mom of two took it to Instagram to show fans how it’s really done: with an LED mask.
Popularized by top facial treatments and therapies, LED (light-emitting diode) masks are known to tackle a wide range of skincare issues including acne and pre-mature ageing. They work by penetrating various wavelengths of light to the skin, promoting faster and efficient cell renewal. Best of all, they don’t require any downtime, which makes them an excellent addition to any skincare routine — without having to book an appointment at the clinic.
Teigen’s mak of choice is The Light Salon’s Boost LED Mask, a near-infrared-powered mask designed to stimulates collagen, encourages healing, calms redness and evens skin tone.

Near-infrared (a red light) is the most powerful of the rejuvenate wavelengths, penetrating deeper than any product can reach. It is known to promote blood circulation, remove toxins and deliver oxygen to nourishing the skin while working with a red light to strengthen elasticity. But, the Boost LED Mask comes with the steep price of $570.
But that’s far from the most expensive LED mask. The gold standard (and A-lister go-to) is the Déesse Pro LED Mask Next Generation, which will set you back a whopping $2,850!

Loved by Victoria Beckham and January Jones, this mask delivers low-level light therapy through 770 medical-grade LEDs — that’s over three times more than other leading consumer-grade LED masks on the market. It features six treatment modes to target multiple skin concerns, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation, scarring and anti-ageing, thanks to the combinations of various light therapies:
Red light mode stimulates collagen.
Supercharged Red light mode offers a 10-minute express anti-ageing treatment.
Blue light mode has anti-bacterial properties that kill bacteria, helping to clear and control breakouts.
Green light mode reduces the production of melanin, lightens, and reduces pigmentation, helping to even the complexion.
Blue & Green light mode calms and soothes irritated and sensitive skin.
Infrared light mode helps boost metabolism and ATP production promoting circulation, scar healing, and elasticity.
