There are regular sheet masks and then there’s the Foreo UFO. FOREO claims to give the results of a typical sheet mask treatment (15-20 minutes) in 90 seconds. The UFO uses three different types of LED lights, depending on the mask you use. Red light is Thermo-Therapy, which prepares the skin to absorb the product in the masks. This is key to what makes them more effective than traditional sheet masks in much less time. Cryotherapy is a green light that diminishes the look of large pores and reduces puffiness, leaving behind firm skin that looks markedly younger. And in case you’re worried, none of these phases use UV light, so your skin is completely safe. The blue LED is ideal for acne-sufferers.
