At Home Microdermabrasion That Works

If you have never tried an at-home microdermabrasion product, they are basically a grand step up from your typical facial scrub. We like to do them every couple of weeks to slough off dead skin. Our faces always look and feel better, and our makeup looks more flawless afterwards. Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel System ($22 at drugstore.com) and Rodan and Fields Micro-Dermabrasion Paste ($77) are two products we've used and really like. The Olay one is a great one for the price. It's a two step system in which you massage the microdermabrasion scrub first onto your face and then follow with the activator serum, which is applied directly on top of the scrub and left on your face for about a minute. We can always definitely feel this product at work on our faces. You may find it irritating if your skin is sensitive. It slightly stung our faces, but we absolutely love how incredibly smooth it made them feel. The Rodan and Fields Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is a one-step product that gets the job done and feels a lot gentler on the face than the Olay system. If your skin is extremely sensitive you can pat a little water on your face before rubbing on the scrub and it will be less abrasive. We both found this one to be a lot less irritating to our skin. We love how bright and fresh our faces look after using it. The main ingredients in the paste are Vitamins C and E (which we always like to see in a skincare product), and it promises to facilitate cell turnover. Both of these microdermabrasion scrubs made our faces feel amazingly soft afterwards, but we prefer the Rodan and Fields formula over the Olay one since it gets the job done in one step while being so much gentler on the skin. Expect a bit of temporary redness after using both.
