Radical skin care treatments are a hot topic within the beauty industry . There are a lot of options out there for women looking to undo sun damage, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and generally rejuvenate the look and feel of their skin. I’m just hitting a period in my life when those concerns are popping up every morning in the mirror. I’m not ready to hit the dermatologist for Botox or other in-office treatments, but I do want to start treating and preventing the inevitable signs of aging.
To get started, I’ve been using Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel Kit. Philosophy got its start developing professional treatments (such as the in-office microdermabrasion machine), but has branched out to create a range of products designed to get big results in the comfort of your bathroom. The Microdelivery Peel Kit contains a hearty exfoliant to resurface the skin and a combination of peptides and Vitamin C to brighten the skin.
Start by massaging the yellow exfoliating grains onto your skin in a circular motion. Focus on dry spots or any other areas of uneven tone. Massage away for two minutes with the tips of your fingers, being careful not to apply enough pressure to be irritating. Then pour a quarter-size amount of the peptide lotion onto your fingertips and massage into skin for one minute. On contact, your skin will begin to feel warm – although not uncomfortably so. After a total of three minutes, wash face and moisturize as usual.
After one use, my face was softer and a little brighter. After a month, my skin tone was more even and radiant. It retains moisture better than before – a huge bonus in getting through these dry winter months. I’m extremely happy with the results of Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel Kit and always look forward to my 3-minute makeover.
