NuFACE mini with makeup beauty products

We get it. You’re juggling career, kids, life, friends, family… you’re busy.

You probably don’t even have time to read this intro, so let’s get right to it…

THE 5-MINUTE FACIAL-LIFT

You can do this every day… it’s the perfect first step after you cleanse, before you put on your makeup (it’s like the contour before the contour)…

What you’re going to need:

  1. NuFACE Trinity or mini
  2. Gel Primer
  3. A mirror

MICROCURRENT FACIAL

First, you’ll need the NuFACE Trinity or Mini facial-lifting device. These are only FDA-cleared at-home microcurrent facial devices which fit in the palm of your hand to provide amazing instant and long-lasting results for more toned and lifted skin.

Learn more about microcurrent facials if you haven’t tried it yet.

GEL UP

The essential first step to a microcurrent facial is the gel primer. You can use this NuFACE Gel Primer or the 24K Gold Gel Primer in anti-aging formulas Brighten or Firm, depending on your primary skin concern. (If you’re an overachiever, try alternating both formulas every other day to maximize your anti-aging benefits.)

The gel primer acts as a conductor for the microcurrent and allows your device to easily glide across the skin for optimum results.
