The best at-home LED beauty gadgets that really work

We’ve rounded up the most effective and affordable at-home LED beauty gadgets that will transform your skin.

Increasingly, when you go for a dermatologist-grade facial, you’re given a dose of light therapy within your treatment. 

Why? Because LED light (which stands for light-emitting diode) helps to target acne and inflammation whilst boosting collagen production and improving circulation— making it a quick, effective beauty treatment. In fact, LED facials are now becoming so popular that beauty booking app Treatwell reports a growth of 144% in some areas of the UK in 2019 alone.

And now, thanks to the ever-increasing popularity of the treatment, at-home LED gadgets are also on the rise.

Which is the best at-home LED gadget for you?  

Depending on your skincare concern and budget, there are lots of different LED gadgets on the market to suit you. Here we’ve rounded up the best at-home LED gadgets that you can use from the comfort of your couch…
