A digital detox is just what it sounds like: breaking free from electronic devices for a period of time. It’s an opportunity to reduce stress and focus not only on the world around us, but on personal self-care and reconnection. And a great place to start is the beauty cabinet.
In the entrance to Gathie Falk’s East Vancouver house, a stack of red ceramic apples from her acclaimed fruit series sits on a table. The piece is a marker of her success—it’s among her best-known and most beloved works—but it’s also a symbol of the bright outlook that has defined her life.
From jade rollers to cleansing brushes, today’s beauty industry is all about handheld tools. And leading the charge is the nanocurrent and microcurrent Ziip, an electrical facial device managed from a smartphone.
Sold by Los Angeles- and Vancouver-based online boutique Twenty One Tonnes—a trove of quality handcrafted goods from artists located around the world—these pieces are a lovely complement to laid-back West Coast tastes.
