I use La Prairie's Cellular Microdermabrasion Cream. It's expensive, of course, retailing for $225, but I've made it last two years now almost! When I first purchased it I would use it often, but since the last year I havent really needed to..now that it's winter and I tend to get more dead skin buildup I will be using it again. It's a beautiful product that you apply with your fingertips on damp skin (especially if you're sensitive) and massage gently only for 60 seconds in the area you are applying. Then you are supposed to get into the shower and let the flow of water rinse it off your face, but I dont want to get back into the shower after I've already been in it, so generally I use a water bottle, and lean over the sink as far as I can and tilt the bottle so that the water hits my face and rinses the product off. Afterwards they have a toner that is equally fabulous that accompanies the cream and I've used it before and it's the best toner ever. I use generally all La Prairie for my skincare, but I also use Clarins and Natura Bisse.
I was using olay regenerist for a while and it felt lovely but then the bottle sort of fell apart and the contents dried up so i'm back on l'oreal microdermabrasion. It's working relatively well but I need to get a better sunblock.
My mother sells Mary Kay stuff and she's always trying to get me to use it. Their microdermabrasion stuff works well and I have very sensitive skin and I'm 22 so it's fine for use on young skin too. I use it once a week in the shower. Just clease first, then use the "abrasion" stuff which is like an exfoliator but superfine grit. Then you smooth on this "replenish" stuff after the shower. My skin is very smooth. Plus it's very cheap for me, I just have to go into my mother's bathroom.
Good things come to those who shop.
You guys, microdermabrasion is a waste of money and may even worsen skin from all I've read. A blue light machine would be a better investment. I don't have one, but have read great things about them. Read this article: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2003/...in557395.shtml
They cost $400 a pop, which is why I haven't bought one.
