From high-tech haircare and bespoke makeup to new supplements and skin-saving patches, these innovations prove we're headed for a bright (dare we say, more beautiful?) future.More
Last year, mineral-infused face masks that you remove with magnets hit the U.S. market—and Instagram hasn't been the same since. Now, Madonna (yes, that Madonna) and Japanese tech firm MTG Co. introduce the MDNA SKIN REJUVENATOR SET: Smooth on the rich, clay-based mask; wait a few minutes; then hover the magnetic end of the included tool over your face to lift off the formula, leaving behind a serum containing epidermal growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins. Next comes the real magic: Flip the tool and glide the infusion end over your skin for three to five minutes. The gadget reads your skin's moisture level, calibrates accordingly, and then delivers alternating cycles of positive and negative charges that push the ingredients deep into skin and stimulate cellular activity. (The current is undetectable, but there's a gentle vibration, so you know it's working.) Your complexion gets plumper over time and looks glowy immediately afterward, as if you're bathed in a...ray of light.

If you want to tune in and drop out—for a little while at least—try floating on salt water in a tank devoid of sound, light, or stimulation. Originally popularized in the 1960s and '70s, and now making a comeback, sensory deprivation is thought to promote mental clarity, reenergize the mind, and speed workout recovery. Two spots to do it: Float On in Portland, Oregon, and Lift (above) in Brooklyn.
