Exfoliating your skin is an important part of any skincare routine. In order for your skin to glow you need to slough off those dead skin cells. If done right you'll be left with radiant skin, if done wrong you can be doing your skin more harm than good (breakouts, skin tears and more).
There are many different forms of exfoliating (masks, peels, physical exfoliants, etc) and finding what works for you is key. Today I'm going to share with you one of my personal favourite exfoliating systems, NeoStrata's Skin Resurfacing Duo. Here's a brief description as found on NeoStrata's website
"Ideal for a quick fix for dull skin concentrating on more resistent dry skin areas. This duo will give you quick results with no downtime."
This product is marketed for all ages and skin types. It's a two step process where you use both crystals and an activator. These are the instructions provided both on the website and directly on the packaging.
Apply Crystals. Massage gently for 1 minute. Apply Activator over Crystals. For sensitive skin, mix both products in the palm of hand before applying. Massage gently for 2 minutes. Rinse. Can be used 1-3 times weekly on face, neck, décolleté and hands.
I don't have particularly sensitive skin so I use it following the two step directions. I also like to use the extra product on my hands to exfolitate them as well ;)
As soon as the product is rinsed my face feels instantly smoother and looks radiant. The first few times I used it my face was a bit 'pink' from the friction but it quickly dissipated after I applied my serum and cream. Since using this regularly (3x a week) I have noticed that my skin is much healthier.
You can purchase it at most mass drugstores (I buy it at Shoppers) and it retails for around $75. This duo will last quite a while so although the price may seem steep at first, it will give you many uses.
Have you tried the Skin Resurfacing Duo? Would you like to? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
