Tria Hair Removal Laser

$395 at triabeauty.com

Best for people with coarse, dark hair and fair skin, this handheld device is the only FDA-approved hair-removal laser for home use. Monthly sessions reduce hair growth on small areas such as the bikini line and underarms.

REN Clean Bio Active Skincare Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask

$55 at sephora.com

A combination of papain enzyme and four fruit acids (lactic, glycolic, tartaric, and citric) sloughs off dead skin and discoloration from acne blemishes without scrubbing. The result: fresher, radiant skin.

PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser

$499 at palovia.com

In three to four minutes a day, this FDA-approved laser provides a 30-to-50-percent improvement in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Use daily for the first 30 days and twice weekly for maintenance.

Clarisonic Mia Sonic

$119 at clarisonic.com

This dermatologist favorite oscillates more than 300 times a second to massage away dirt and clear pores, exfoliating skin and preparing it for better absorption of serums and creams. Even people with sensitive skin or acne can use it daily for a smoother complexion.

Bliss Poetic Waxing At-Home Hair Removal Kit

$48 at blissworld.com and sephora.com

Instead of fabric strips, this microwavable, head-to-toe kit uses paint-on wax that shrink-wraps even the shortest, most stubborn hairs, yanking them straight out from the root.

  • Laser hair removal devices are great but make sure to get the rechargeable ones or you will be spending a lot of money on batteries.
