Salma Hayek made many of us stop scrolling through our Instagram feeds yesterday after she posted a photo of herself donning a rather futuristic-looking skincare gadget. 

While it may have looked like a rather unusal pair of sunglasses, the 54-year-old actor was actually wearing the SpectraLite by Dr Dennis Gross, which works to get rid of "tired eyes", claimed Hayek. 

LED face masks have been hugely popular among fellow celebrities, with stars such as Victoria Beckham singing their praise. Not to mention, the whole host of celebrities who used the CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask to get Golden Globes ready last month.

How it works 

The SpectraLite is an LED light treatment, which works to stimulate collagen production, to plump and smooth the skin, for a more youthful complexion. 

It also aims to brighten and tighten the delicate under eye area.

The beauty device uses 72 LED lights, to deliver therapeutic light, which are fitted in a handsfree wearable pair of glasses made from flexible silicon to target the eye area.

It can be worn on your face for three minutes a day to get optimum results and can be easily charged using a USB port.

The SpectraLite also has an automatic shut off to ensure your safety, and so the wearer gets the necessary amount of light therapy. 

Simply place the device comfortably on a clean and dry face, covering the eye area, switch on the power, and wear for three minutes.

It's recommended to follow the treatment with an eye serum or cream.

Hayek's exact SpectraLite retails for £175 and is available to buy from numerous stockists, including lookfantastic, SpaceNK and Cult Beauty.
