I am not a patient person. I know that patience is considered to be a virtue, but I've also given up on it being an attributed virtue of mine. Over the course of the last two years, I have eliminated a lot of complication from my routines, namely when it comes to skincare. This means a routine with carefully plotted out usage of a retinol, vitamin C, and an AHA, with a heavy dose of peptides, hyaluronic acid, and SPF in between. This has protected my skin's moisture barrier, and yielded consistent results for my skin in the form of better texture, tone, and brightness. So you can only imagine that I haven't wanted to stray far from what I know works. But one addition in the form of a wearable skincare device—the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask—has taken the results of that consistency to the next level.

You've surely seen LED masks of all sorts worn by your favorite influencers on social media. You look like a villain from a slasher movie in the pics—so obviously if you are so inclined, there's the added incentive of increased engagement in your stories. I digress. The CurrentBody Face Mask is a gamechanger, in my mind, for a few reasons, chief among them that it is made of flexible silicone, so it's easy to clean, pack, and store. It also has a combination of red and near-infrared light therapy, which is great for anti-aging and inflammation. And the best part is that there aren't just insane claims to go with it: the results are clinically studied and proven—a reduction of wrinkles by 35 percent in just 4 weeks of consistent use. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and I quite like this pudding.

Remember when I said that I don't have patience for high-maintenance? When it comes to this mask, I actually regularly use it because I can strap it on my head and go about my business. I've basked in the LED goodness while unloading the dishwasher, answering emails, and binging Only Murders in the Building. There's no excuse not to when you're a multi-tasking Jedi. And the thing is, if I am distracted from using it regularly, I see a difference.

You know that fine tuned routine I was talking about It says something that with regular use of the added LED Mask step a few nights a week, I see a noticeable difference in
my results from the fading of hyperpigmentation, tone, clarity, and just overall bounciness. Turns out, there's a reason why celebrities rely on these devices to get red carpet ready. Think of it like this: with an added LED Mask step, that probably means less time spent on facials and other interventions in the future. What could be better than that?
