Microdermabrasion at Home
As hard as I've tried, I just can't keep it a secret any longer. I have to let you know about the most fabulous skincare product I've tried in a long time.
I had received a sample of MicrodermX a while back, but just got around to trying it Sunday evening. This is a do-it-yourself microdermabrasion treatment that takes almost no time to do. Made up of a 2-step treatment, this could not be any easier! Simply take a pea-sized dollop of Refinish Microdermabrasion Cream ($49) and massage it into your skin. The dried skin will exfoliate and ball up, so you'll know when to stop. After you do your whole face, rinse with water and apply Replenish, the botanical enzyme nutrient cream that nourishes skin as well as helps to repair past effects while preventing future damage caused by environmental pollutants ($39). My skin felt as soft as my 2-year old son's, no kidding! My pores looked smaller, my wrinkles were diminished and the surface of my skin was smoother. It helped to even out a bit of discoloration in my skintone. Where has this product been all my life?
I give MicrodermX my highest referral. Not only does it work, and work well, but it is created from holistic ingredients without any parabens, synthetic preservatives, artificial dyes, fragrances or other "yucky stuff". The crystals are medical-grade and are safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
While the price tag isn't inexpensive ($75 for the pair), over the long run you'll be getting a bargain. Each set lasts for 15 - 18 treatments, so think of it as just $5 (or less) per treatment. This is much less expensive than going to a salon, and there were no after-effects. My skin was just slightly rosy from the the exfoliation, but there was no discomfort and it took a total of about 15 minutes. You've just got to give MicrodermX a try!
