A simple anti-aging Tool
Microneedles for aging skin
The other day, I got a few compliments that my skin was glowing. That was wonderful to hear after being home for days writing and working non-stop with little social interaction. The best part is that being 48 years old and still getting acne (thanks crazy hormones), I am able to care for my skin in a few ways that seems to be working--most of time.
The key is, it requires diligent work and using a few products. I call it "Age me Better".
Though I write more about this in my upcoming book, I want to share one of the tools I use. It's an affordable little tool called cosmetic microneedles.
After cleansing your skin, you can use this about once a week. Gently roll the microneedles in one direction on your skin. They are needles so do not apply too much pressure. This causes something similar than what happens with your muscles when you work out. This exfoliates the skin in such a way that it causes it to heal itself. This is how one of the manufactures describe their product:
How to Get That Glow
Our Microneedle Derma Roller is easy to use! For the best experience, use in combination with our Vitamin C Serum to promote healthy looking skin.
Safety First! Sterilize the roller in an alcohol solution before and after each use.
Wash your skin and pat dry.
Roll the Microneedle Derma Roller over the desired area, back and forth, 4-5 times .Be careful to apply pressure without puncturing the skin.
Switch direction and roll back and forth for another 4-5 times.
After rolling, apply a moisturizer or repairing serum.
Don't forget to sanitize and store in the provided plastic case!For optimal results use once a week.
Replace the roller every 1-2 months if using regularly.
Let's be clear, there is much I have to do to care for my skin, but i am glad I invested in this little tool which makes my routine more effective.
