LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN.

Foreo Luna Mini (6), made with antibacterial silicone, works wonders no matter your skin type. Three zones cover the gamut of skin care, unclogging pores, gently exfoliating, removing makeup and more. Low-frequency pulsations help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles ($139; www.sephora.com).
