Anyone who has been lucky enough to visit a salon for a micro-dermabrasion treatment, will tell you how amazingly smooth and radiant their skin feels after!
This is a treatment that most skin types can benefit from (apart from extremely sensitive skin) – micro crystals sweep away dull/ dead skin cells (on a deeper level than a daily exfoliator can). Oily skins love this treatment as it clears blocked pores and reveals a clearer, fresher skin and it is great for speeding up the healing process of any acne scarring. For ageing skins the results are equally satisfying as the youthful glow the skin is left with is beautiful.
Since having a treatment myself a few years ago and seeing the results, I have been a huge fan of micro-dermabrasion. As someone who does not have a lot of time for salon treatments, I wanted a product that could deliver results at home. Whilst a home micro-dermabrasion product may not deliver the exact same results as a salon treatment, I have found a product which helps me to keep my skin so smooth and only takes a few minutes once a week!
I have been using the No7 Micro-dermabrasion Exfoliator for many, many months and have recommended it to so many brides at their makeup rehearsal. I can actually see a difference 4-6 weeks later when I then see them on their wedding day. This is a product that you can ’slot’ into any skincare regime that you have, it doesn’t matter which skincare brand you use either. Once a week after cleansing, massage this product on to your face (not the eye area) and rinse off. Your skin will feel and look so much smoother and your makeup also glide on easier to your skin.
When you exfoliate your skin, the other skincare products that you use will be more effective – as if you are putting creams/ serums on skin which has a lot of dead skin cells, the products will not absorb into your skin as easily.
Clients have also been delighted who suffer with blemishes as they have noticed that this has improved – exfoliating the skin in this way will help to avoid your pores getting blocked, which can help to encourage blemishes.
No7 Total Renewal also make a Micro-Dermabrasion Body Exfoliator – again, this is an amazing product that exfoliates on a slightly deeper level than most gentle body scrubs, so you can glow from head to toe!
The No7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Exfoliator retails at £10.50 and the No7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Body Exfoliator is £10.00. www.boots.com
