Microdermabrasion At Home

Microdermabrasion at home is a great inexpensive way to treat your skin. Why pay for expensive treatments when you can achieve the same results using natural ingredients at home. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to ‘sand off’ or exfoliate the surface and upper layers of the skin.It essentially ‘wounds’ your epidermis so that your body produces new skin cells to replace the layer of skin that has been irritated.

Many swear by the results as it leaves the skin more refined and polished especially for acne sufferers, however this can be done at home using more natural ingredients. Do these twice weekly and you should see results.

A simple ingredient such a demerara sugar exfoliates the skin and contains natural glycolic acid – which is used in many facial peels.

Other ingredients that can be used because they contain enzymes that dissolve proteins in dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth are papaya, cantaloupe and pineapple. in fact any fruit that contains ‘papain’ or other enzymes added to your microdermabrasion recipe will work like a facial peel and deliver results.


How to Do A Microdermabrasion At Home Like A Pro


Start with a basic scrub. Below are some basic recipes according to your skin type and then its a matter of adding other fresh ingredients to boost the effects.

Mix all these together and put into a small container so you have it ready when you need it. When you want to use it simply mix a tablespoon of your scrub with a tablespoon of either mashed papaya, cantaloupe, pineapple or kiwifruit and apply to your face using gentle circular movements and then rinse off. The demerara sugar contains glycolic acid, the oil is very moisturising and honey contains enzymes that retain moisture in dry skin and the coffee has vitamins and antioxidants.

If your face is sensitive you may wish to ass pureed apple or strawberries or apricots as they are gentler on the skin and contain AHA acids.

Apply the scrubs to clean dry skin for two to five minutes but do not leave on for more than ten minutes and then rinse off with warm water and pat skin dry.

Follow with a toner and moisturiser appropriate for your skin type. There you have it! You can get a microdermabrasion at home and still get salon results without the price tag.
