There are far more than 3 things we need to know.
I had the idea to start a conversation about those fashion and beauty ideas we not only want to learn more about but also those we want to share. There is so much information to decipher and so many new discoveries to be made and none of us want to be left behind.
I believe together we are a force to be reckoned with and if the answer isn’t forthcoming one of us will surely figure it out. I read your comments with such interest and have tried and loved so many of the suggestions; I decided if I need to know something this is the forum to talk about it.
There are 3 beauty products/gadgets I have yet to try and I want to.
I read about them endlessly and if there is one thing I want to be is up to date and I do not want to miss out on the next best thing, if it is really the next best thing.
I don’t believe everything I read and my age prevents me from believing in absolute miracles, of the beauty kind at least. I do however know that the right product, treatment and machine can make a world of difference to how our skin looks and feels. That is a no brainer.
3 Things We Need To Know
1. Derma rolling also known as Micro Needling
The principle is like aeration for the face. Try not to think of the spring treatment we give our lawns ;)
Using a small hand held roller, with fine minimally invasive needles, the skin is pierced to improve collagen production and in turn plump up the skin. Any product applied afterwards will be rapidly absorbed and be more effective. Like all beauty treatments, regular use sees the most effective results. The procedure is either in salon or DYI with a home rolling system.
It is important which roller to use and specifically the size of the needle; needles for the face should be fine and made of titanium and less than 1.5mm. I will try micro needling because I hear friends and beauty professionals rave about it but it does sound a little threatening, which is why I haven’t. There is a system from GloPRO, which looks appealing and has had excellent reviews.
Have you tried this technique?
2. Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic is a buzzword that has been with us for some time
Why? Hyaluronic acid rehydrates, plumps and boosts the skin’s radiance. Okay, I’m in.
What I haven’t tried are the hyaluronic ampoules, an intensive hyaluronic acid treatment for an instant skin refresh and hydration boost. The most popular reviews are for those from Dr Barbara Sturm.
High on my “to-try” list.
3. Eye Massage
Puffiness and dark circles are a problem for me. An eye massager is apparently the way forward. A small hand held machine can help reduce fine lines, dark smudges and puffiness and stimulate the area to be more receptive to eye cream.
This idea makes real sense to me and the only problem I see is making myself spend the time but that says more about me than the appliance. We invest so much in skincare what is an extra few minutes daily to obtain the best results from our products.
It’s natural and while I might prefer the luxury of a masseuse tap, tapping away, this could well be the next best thing. Do you use this eye massager?
Love to know if you “know” or like me you are in the “try” stage? xv
