When it comes to being obsessive compulsive (I’m super Type A) I guess you can say that I’m a little OCD about exfoliating. That goes for scrubbing, peels and of course, microderms. Whatever I can do to reveal my freshest face, I try – in office or at home especially since I have a bit of discoloration. Recently, I’ve been hooked on the Olay Pro Microdermabrasion Advanced Cleansing System, which has safely and effectively been keeping my skin smooth and bright. Now that the seasons are changing, you may want to try a microderm-like treatment, too.
Microdermabrasion (an exfoliation treatment that rids the surface layer of your skin) helps to improve your skins tone and texture, reduces the appearance of your pores, treats acne, rids age spots and more. At your derms office a series of microdermabrasions can cost you a pretty penny. I’m really impressed by the Olay Pro Microdermabrasion Advanced Cleansing System, ($39.99 at drugstores), because it’s an at-home form of the treatment that lives up to it’s claims. After five days of use, 90% of women noticed silkier, smoother skin and a visible improvement in dullness.
It includes two brush heads: one for daily cleansing and one for exfoliating along with an Olay cleanser to go with each. I normally wouldn’t use the products that come with gadgets, because I like my own, but since this is Olay, I’ve been using them without hesitation. I use the brush for cleansing my face nightly and try to keep the exfoliating (microderm treatments) to twice a week. That’s what’s recommended, but I’ll be honest, since I’m OCD, I sometimes go overboard. Between the pollution of NYC, sweat from the gym and bronzer I dust on, it’s nice to remove my ‘life layers’ and really feel like I’m removing them. Ya hear me?
