Isn’t Microdermabrasion a Scary Medical Spa Treatment?
Exfoliation and microdermabrasion seem like big, scary words only appropriate for medical spa treatments or super expensive, designer skin care products. We are here to tell you that they aren’t scary. And they are not just reserved for uber wealthy facial lovers. Microdermabrasion in particular has been thought to only be available as an in-depth spa treatment. Now, it is right at your fingertips in Camille Coton’s Smooth, Erase, Reveal skin care regimen. It consists of a soft microdermabrasion cream and a hydrating serum. The words soft and microdermabrasion seem to negate one another, but this is the kind of treatment that is recommended by dermatologists. Free from harsh, scratchy microbeads and irritating acids, the cream dissolves the dead skin cells while the dry wash cloth gently buffs the remaining cells away.
Why is microdermabrasion important?
Your skin has many layers, and in order to achieve that coveted glow, microdermabrasion is key. Think of an artist getting ready to paint something. He or she needs to start with a blank canvas to create a masterpiece. It is the same with your skin. Microdermabrasion makes your skin into a clean slate, clearing away all the unnecessary junk that clogs pores. In addition, incorporating microdermabrasion into your skincare regimen can cause the skin to be refreshed and bright. It is important to use high quality products at a recommended frequency of no more than 2-3 times per week. This helps your skin receive the optimum benefit without damaging it. Camille Coton’s formula is especially gentle. Our microbead-and-acid-free microdermabrasion cream removes dead skin cells without causing harmful irritation.
Why does frequency matter?
The microdermabrasion cream should be done 2-3 times per week for normal to oily skin, and once a week for dry or sensitive skin. Your skin needs time to fully regenerate before the next round of microdermabrasion. Treatments too often can cause the skin to become sensitive, thinner, and more susceptible to wrinkles. It can also cause irritation, splotchy complexion, and breakouts that result from stripping your skin of its natural oils. In short, a little microdermabrasion goes a long way and it’s important to find the right balance for your skin.
What do I do after microdermabrasion?
After exfoliation or microdermabrasion, it is important to make sure your skin is hydrated and nourished. It is recommended to apply a serum or moisturizing cream after treatment. Camille Coton’s Cotton BB Bloom Balm Oil serum helps the skin be rejuvenated and rebuilds the healthy layers. It also tones the skin, tightens pores, and evens out your skin tone so that your whole complexion is brighter and smoother.
As we SMOOTHED out the edges of our lives and ERASED the negativity during the last two weeks on the blog, we talked about the benefits of eliminating the unnecessary junk in your life. During that process, we were getting ready for the last step, Reveal.
The only way to change or move forward is to assess how things really are–to REVEAL the truth and recognize its beauty.
After you let go of everything you don’t need or want, it’s time to embrace what you do have.
With all the negative stuff out of the way, you can see the beauty of your life, full of good things and good people.
Are you truly yourself?
Do you feel afraid to reveal the real you? Most (if not all) of us have felt this way before. You might be afraid to really say what you want. You could be scared someone is going to tell you, “no.” Or, you’re afraid of any kind of rejection so you don’t even try.
You might be putting on a front with people because you’re afraid of what could happen if you let down your guard. The truth is, people like honesty. It’s okay to let yourself shine through, even the parts that seem scary to reveal. After letting go of the negative parts of your life, what’s left is smooth, clean, and refreshed.
It is the same with our skin.
It’s easy to rely on makeup to feel beautiful, but accepting how you look naturally is important for self esteem. Camille Coton’s goal is to create products that remove the bad and unnecessary elements of your skin while enhancing the good, healthy elements.
After smoothing the microdermabrasion cream over your skin, erasing the dead skin cells and unnecessary layers, the third step is to reveal. This is the very best step because it celebrates the glow your skin has after being gently and thoroughly exfoliated. The BB Bloom Balm Oil Serum knits the healthy, refreshed skin after microdermabrasion. It uses Cotton Bloom extract to soothe the skin and licorice extract to help even out your skin tone. The oil serum is also rich in almond and Marula oil, both having a hydrating effect on the skin. Lastly, the serum has vitamins A, C, and E.
Let your skin be hydrated and toned while you enjoy the soft, clean feeling that Camille Coton’s skin care products provide. Reveal your inner beauty as you reveal the beauty of your rejuvenated skin. Embrace the you that’s been hiding, and let your true self shine!
