I’m shining bright like a diamond!
As part of my new partnership with Spa Week, where I’ll be sharing my Meaningful Me Moments and Always Be Your Best Your wellness and beauty tips on their blog SpaWeek Daily, I went to get what has literally been a life-changing, rocking-my-world facial, at the New York Fashion Beauty Spa.
I believe your face is your calling card, and must be tended with delicate care. Heck, I even taught my kids to sit in the bathroom and count my nail polish or read a book, so mommy can apply her 7+ step Sulwhasoo and Naturopathica masks, serums, emulsions, moisturizers, eye creams, oh my.
How have I never done a microdermabrasion, let alone one with diamonds?
So, what is a microdermabrasion? And, how is it that Pam actually spelled that word correctly? (I know you’re thinking that big sis!!)
Well, a microdermabrasion is a type of treatment during which dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face.Ya, it sucks all the nastiness right off your face. Eek!! I looked at the removed dead skin and debris. It was totally unnecessary baggage.
Oh, so the diamond part, the tip of the microdermabrasion wand is covered in tiny diamonds, which, together with the strong suction, make it possible to exfoliate the skin more thoroughly than other procedures. With the flexibility of using different suction levels, this procedure also increases blood flow to the skin, which helps to produce collagen. #winning
My skin instantly felt lighter, looked smoother, and shined. It truly shined like a radiant, diamond.
Following the appointment, I had lunch with some pr and TV-anchor friends – these gals know good skin. Everyone kept asking me what new shimmer I was using on my face, even what procedures I’d done.
The compliments continued at home, with my husband. And, have following me for several days since.
Aside from promoting a healthy, glowing complexion, a microdermabrasion:
- Reduces appearance of wrinkles
- Decreases or eliminates mild to moderate acne scarring
- Helps decrease hyperpigmentation or brown spots
- Diminishes look of stretch marks
