A lot of people think that working in the beauty and anti-aging business means I just “sit around and have beauty treatments” all day long. If only that were true! I wish I had time to sit around having beauty treatments, but just like most of you reading this, I don’t. That’s why I love to find secrets, tips and shortcuts for skin rejuvenation that I can use to save both time and money, such as microdermabrasion at home.
One of the best ways to be your most beautiful, youthful self is to reveal the new, glowing skin your body so generously gives you just about every 30 days or so by creating new skin cells. Your skin is your largest organ. It’s easy to forget that because it just doesn’t seem like an “organ.” Typically we think of organs as heart, liver, kidneys, etc. Ninety five percent of the cells in the epidermis (top layer of skin) work to make new cells and five percent of the cells make melanin, which gives skin its color.
Though you can’t see it happening, every minute of the day we lose about 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells off the surface of our skin to make room for the new skin cells. As we age, dead skin cells don’t shed as quickly and turnover of new skin cells may decrease slightly.
So, what does this have to do with beautiful skin? Pretty much everything. If you want to discover beautiful, flawless skin on your face, neck and chest, your new secret weapon could be microdermabrasion. This simple at-home facial skin treatment will reveal the youthful you that has been hiding behind the dry surface created by the environment, chemicals or age. There are plenty of easy-to-use and affordable products you can find that will suit your skin’s needs. Here is a rundown of some of the best ways available to quickly bring back the glow in your otherwise dull skin.
Microdermabrasion Products For Beautiful Skin
Developed by one of Hollywood’s leading makeup artists, JoAnna Connell, the Starmakers Hollywood Red Carpet Makeover Kit is a microdermabrasion system that works so gently you can use it every day to give you the flawless skin that you crave. Not only does this system promise to polish away the dead skin on the surface of your face and neck, but it will also revitalize and nourish your skin for a healthy glow.
Each kit includes the Micro Pearl Three-in-One Cleanser, which removes makeup as well as cleansing and toning your skin. The genuine pearl and silk formulation hydrates skin as it cleans. Follow the cleansing with the Micro Pearl Abrasion to minimize the look of your pores, even your skin tone and help to decrease those pesky lines around your lips and eyes. It does this using crushed pearls and customers say it even makes applying your makeup easier. Finally, the kit includes the Overnight Skin Repair, which promises that in eight weeks, you’ll discover that both fine and coarse lines are less noticeable while your skin’s radiance and firmness is improved.
Another system you could try is the HydroPeptide Polish & Peel Two-Piece Set. Gentle massaging action activates the Microdermabrasion crystals and Collagen-Supporting/Moisture-Binding Peptides, brightening and smoothing your skin almost instantly. Simply massage Peel 1 on your damp skin for one to two minutes then spend another couple of minutes massaging in Peel 2. After rinsing away the product and drying your skin, you’ll discover just how beautiful your skin is.
Another one for skin rejuvenation, ISOMERS Reveal N’ Renew Thermal Micro-Dermabrasion Mask can be used on your face, neck and chest once or twice a week to uncover a flawless complexion. Triple exfoliating action works through BHA, polishing beads and thermal heat to smooth your skin and bring out your inner radiance. The warming sensation is pleasant and the result is improved skin texture that glows.
If you’ve ever spent a fortune at the medical spa having crystal micro-dermabrasion, then The Crystalift Professional At Home Micro-Dermabrasion Treatment Set could be for you. It’s a professional way to reveal the flawless skin that lies just below the surface of your face and neck using sodium bicarbonate crystals to exfoliate away dead skin cells while they stimulate surface renewal. It’s fun and easy to use. The Crystalift Machine heats the crystal capsules to a comfortable temperature then you use the glide wand to apply the product to your skin. After applying, rinse away the residue to reveal the ultimate in radiance and lovely skin texture.
If you have problem skin, you can still take advantage of microdermabrasion at home with the Skinn Cosmetics Four-Piece Problem Skin Perfecting Set. The SOS Acne Oil Control Cleanser in the kit uses natural rainforest plants such as Blue Cypress, Tea Tree Oil and Oregano to calm and balance oily skin while they help to control unwanted bacteria. Not only will your skin look and feel better, it will be healthier as well. The SOS Acne Oil Blotting Moisturizer controls oil while it calms and sooths your skin.
The SOS Acne Treatment Wipes contain salicylic acid to encourage your skin to shed dead cells and clear your pores. This reduces the likelihood of blockages and breakouts. The Matte Veil Shine & Oil Control Powder is a lightweight formula that cuts down on shine and helps to create the look of a poreless finish. Simple to use, comfortable and soothing, this kit provides you with a healthy way to create a flawless look every day.
Vitamin C is known to improve many aspects of your health and its benefits extend to your skin. Try Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Anti-wrinkle Vitamin C Patches to take advantage of this beneficial vitamin. The patches reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, upper lip or other areas of the face. And the product works while you sleep. It’s so simple to use with its peel and press method, and you’ll wake up feeling like a new you after each night that you use them.
These are just a few of the at-home microdermabrasion products that are available to help you reveal the flawless skin of your youth. Simple to use and far less expensive than in-spa treatments, any of these products could quickly become one of the most useful tools in your daily beauty regimen.
