I’ve talked about my crazy hormonal acne issues a few times here on this blog. I never, EVER had bad acne growing up but maybe my hormones have changed since having kids? I’m not really sure. But the past couple of months were horrific. I would always break out on my chin and they were huge. Even worse, I picked them until they were open wounds and then eventually scars. So without makeup, you can see the places where I picked previous acne. No bueno.
I’ve only ever had one facial and it was a deep pore facial. I had a microdermabrasion facial on my wish list for the future but then I discovered this tool; Silkn’ ReVit. It’s a at-home microdermabrasion tool that combines gentle microdermabrasion exfoliation with vacuum stimulation. There are 3 different tips and 2 different speeds so you can adjust it to your comfort level. I couldn’t believe how many dead skin cells I could see in the filter and my skin felt as smooth as diamonds after using it. I was expecting it to hurt a little but it didn’t hurt at all!
So how does it work? First, you wash your face with cleanser and thoroughly dry. Next, you choose the different type of tip; precision, course, and fine. Turn it on, hold it like a pencil, place it on the area to be treated and move in slow, gentle strokes. Each area should be treated for 5 or so minutes. When you’re finished, rinse with water and apply moisturizer. I mostly just use it on my chin where the scars are but it can also be used for fine lines and wrinkles, aging skin, dull and sun damaged skin and skin discoloration.
I love that this tool allows me to uncover healthier skin naturally. I used it 3-4 times last week and no joke, I can already see a difference. So I’m excited to keep it up over the next few months. I will report back in a few months after I’ve had more time to use it but I give it a big thumbs up! The kit retails for $99, which is much less than a facial. It’s an investment but well worth it in my opinion.
Have you ever tried at-home microdermabrasion? How do you care for your skin or scars?
