Here's a device that nearly replicates the effects of a professional microdermabrasion treatment. Use it regularly, and it'll buff away dark spots and brighten the skin. It vacuums up dead skin cells as it runs. Buy it at Amazon.

3. Homedics Shiatsu Air Max Foot Massager ($127)

Soothe sore feet with rhythmic air compression that mimics the deep kneading of a shiatsu-style massage. If you plug it in under your desk at work and slip off your shoes, "nothing will perturb you," said Men's Journal. Buy it at Amazon.

4. Urpower 300ml Essential Oil Diffuser ($20)

Add aromatherapy to your home spa routine with a diffuser that has three times the capacity of others at its price. The subtle scents and seven colored lights "will change the ambience of any room," said The Sweet Home. Buy it at Amazon.

5. Kae Exfoliating Hammam Glove ($16)

A staple in Turkish bathhouses, this textured mitt is used for vigorous post-soak rubdowns. But it's also "gentle enough to remove delicate layers of a shedding sunburn," said New York. Use it regularly for "healthier, glowier" skin. Buy it at Amazon.
