Get More Vibrant Skin Instantly with These Effective Products

Apr/20/2015 at 12:00 PM ET

When you want all the benefits from a really great anti-aging product, but can’t wait the three to four weeks for the results, your only option is probably to spend a whole lot of money on a professional facial or oxygen rejuvenation treatment (that Madonna, Kim Kardashian and even David Beckham turn to in a time crunch). Fortunately for those who don’t have the celeb-size budget to get frequent doses, you can get the same benefits right at homeand for a fraction of the cost.

The rejuvenation treatment is a special spray serum that costs up to $200 per session. Lucky for us, Intraceuticals introduced the Essential 3-Step Starter Kit for easy access at home (and it costs $100 less!). When used twice a day, morning and night, you’ll see more hydrated skin that’s super-soft to the touch.

It comes with a Daily Serum (to prep), a Hydration Gel (to reduce wrinkles) and a Moisture Binding Cream (to lock in moisture) that should be used together to see the most beneficial results. If you’re a first time Joyus shopper, enter PEOPLE10 at checkout to get 10% off orders over $50 and free shipping.

“Sure,” you think, “I too could have amazing nails like Oscar nominees if someone came to my house while I was getting ready.” Well, it’s now as easy as pulling up an app on your phone. And to prove that point, PEOPLE editor Jennifer Garcia Allen (who knows a little something about having to get glammed up for the red carpet — she’s reporting from the Oscars tonight!) did just that for an event last week.

This Stylish Cocktail Ring Alerts You to Text Messages, Emails and More (Yes, Really!)

Jan/22/2015 at 10:59 AM ET

Let’s be honest: Most wearable tech pieces are male-friendly. But we just found a smart accessory that is super-useful and super-chic. (Read: You’re going to actually want to be seen wearing it.) Thanks to the Ringly “Stargaze” ring you won’t miss an appointment, important email, text or Tinder alert ever again.

Here’s how it works: the chic piece of jewelry syncs to the Ringly app on your iPhone or Android via Bluetooth. It senses your phone from up to 30 feet away to make sure you are in range to get all those important notifications. It’s also water resistant, and the ring box doubles as a charging station (so make sure you don’t throw it away!). But despite all the cool features, we’d wear these rings anyway — they’re just that pretty.

Now you have to decide if you like the Onyx or Moonstone style best. And if you’re a first time Joyus shopper, you get 10% off orders over $50 plus free shipping by entering PEOPLE10 at checkout. (That’s close to $20 off the $195 pricetag!)

What Is This Crazy-Looking Beauty Tool and Why Do You Need One Now?

Oct/27/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

It used to be that, if you wanted to get microdermabrasion (the treatment that uses very fine grains to buff away the top layer of skin, leaving your complexion smoother and more flawless), you had to go to a dermatologist’s office and pay a lot without the help of insurance. And hey, it was worth it, especially since it’s one of the few non-surgical ways to get more youthful skin. But now, with the advent of at-home microdermabrasion tools, you can reap all the benefits without having to drop serious cash. We tested out a whole bunch of the tools and this is our favorite.

There are three colors of this microdermabrasion tool and all of them come with a set of attachments, designed for combination skin, typical skin and even sensitive skin (the latter is gentle enough for anyone to use).

So, here’s what to expect once you start using this guy: Your pores will be less noticeable, your skin will feel softer and more supple, plus your makeup will go on more smoothly. It’s like the best exfoliation you’ve ever experienced, only it won’t leave you all red and inflamed.

Now, we know it’s not exactly cheap, but it’s way less than what you’d pay for a visit to the derm for the treatment and this is something you’ll have and can use for the rest of your life. Plus, you can share it with your significant other (that’s what this editor does!). And if you’ve never shopped on Joyus before, you get an extra 10% off on orders over $50, plus free shipping, with the discount code PEOPLE10, bringing the cost down to under $150.

Shop it by going here or clicking on the product in the product tray just below the video.

We love using ours in conjunction with this silicone face-washing tool — the combo has left our skin smoother and more flawless than anything else we’ve tried.
