Anyone wondering which skin care tools are worth it, and which ones make the biggest difference in your skin? I have made a tutorial on three skin care tools that you need in your arsenal. They’re affordable and won’t break the bank, I promise! I have had several ladies ask me about my skin and what I do to help keep it youthful and clear, so I thought it would be a no brainer to talk about my three favorite skin care tools. I use them weekly, and swear by them. They’ve made such a difference in my skin and probably saved me thousands of dollars by not having to go to my dermatologist.
One of the biggest differences they have made in my skin is helping my acne scarring (from previous cystic acne), the texture of my skin, annoying melasma, my pore size is minimal now, and my makeup just looks so much better! I really do wish I had a side by side comparison of my skin. You would never know I used to have scars and less than desirable skin. Also I want to mention that my skin care is even more effective now. When you use good skin care along with these skin tools, you’re getting the most bang for your buck. They just go hand in hand and you’ll see much better results. I use medical grade skin care, mostly because it’s stronger and more effective. I do alternate brands so my skin doesn’t get used to something and not work as well. I tend to alternate between Epionce, Skinceuticals, Skinmedica, Regenica, Neocutis, & Obagi. My favorite sunscreen has to be Elta MD! You can get it in sheer or tinted. They are possibly the lightest weight sunscreen I’ve found yet. Read my previous post about my 4 favorite sunscreens in-depth, here.
I’ve been a territory sales rep in the cosmeceutical industry for going on 7 years now and have seen and heard of all the latest and greatest tools in med spas and Dermatologist offices. Being around estheticians can really make you re-evaluate your own skin, let me tell ya! They all have FLAWLESS skin!!! But most of us don’t have access to all the lasers, and tools that they do, nor can most people afford the maintenance & upkeep, and the time it takes to schedule a visit. I haven’t had any Botox or Fillers for several years, and oh how I miss it, but it’s just so expensive! That’s another reason I thought you guys needed this video, is because these 3 tools aren’t expensive and you can do them in your own home, plus there’s no downtime needed! BONUS BONUS BONUS
3 skin care tools that you need in your arsenal
I first want to mention and failed to do so in my video, that I use the Clarisonic Pro brush to clean my face daily and am OBSESSED. I don’t know what took me so long to get one, and I’m totally spoiled. You will NOT regret ever purchasing one. I purchased the Pro version because it has 4 speeds, and it comes with a body polish brush head. I use the deep pore brush head, but there are several others you can purchase for your skin type. I even bought my husband a grey one for Christmas a couple of years ago (because he works outside daily and this is the best at getting sunscreen off and all the dirt on his face), and he loves it. If you can compare using a Clarisonic vs washing with your hands, you’ll be totally grossed out, by all the leftover makeup that’s left on your skin. Sadly, my pro just died on me. I have used it religiously for the past 5 years, and we had a great run. I will be purchasing another one ASAP, because my face is going through withdrawals now…..lol The Pro is now called their Smart Profile Uplift & Anti Aging Massage & Cleansing Brush that you can find here. If you don’t care about the body brush or faster speeds, then the Mia 2 is a perfect one for you.
***One more tiny tip that most people don’t think of, is to close the cover on the sunroof in your car! The sun can damage your skin even through the windows and we all know what sun damage can do to your skin. So do yourself a favor and close the cover on your sunroof!
- PMD Microdermabrasion Tool-I purchased this at Sephora a few years ago and it didn’t take long to fall in love with. There are several different tips of coarseness you can purchase. I use the red which is the most course, because my skin has acclimated and can handle it.
- Eyebrow Razor(aka dermaplaning tool)- I use these to carefully shave off the fine hairs on my face, and touch up my eyebrows. It makes my skin sooo soft afterwards and my makeup looks flawless.
- Derma roller– This is a great alternative for micro needling at a med spa. The microneedling pen works deeper and is definitely more effective, but it’s also very expensive, and you need to go through several sessions, typically. However, if you have significant acne scarring, & can swing it, I do highly recommend them. You can always a couple of sessions and alternate with your derma roller! The dermaroller has been a game changer for my skin.
