Has anyone tried the do-it-yourself microdermabrasion products?
Any recommendations for the best product out there at an affordable price? I’m ‘not’ looking for the $100 and above range. Thanks ladies!

    Hi Ali. I use a simple mixture of crushed lemons, sea salt, and olive oil as a topical scrub. You can add a little white sand, but be careful that you don’t rub too hard when you apply and stay away from the eye area.

      My favorite is the retexturing peels from Avon. My skin glows, wrinkles are reduced and my skin is very smooth. Cost is around $30.00

    I had never used any type of microdermabrasion product until I tried Mary Kay TimeWise Microdermabrasion Set. I love it!!! So much in fact that I’ve started using it all over my body. The microdermabrasion particles are so small and yet they feel so good. I know I’m getting just the right amount of scrubbing power. I love the essence “lotion” that goes on after the “scrub”. It makes my skin feel silky smooth and soft. Best of all I can see the difference when I use the set 3 times a week and so can my husband. 🙂 The set is only $55! http://marykay.com/genuineamyhall/en-US/Skin-Care/TimeWise-Microdermabrasion-Set/100723.partId?eCatId=10026

    Hi Ali,
    The best solution is to use a scrub, and use small circular motions for about five minutes while applying it. If you have been using products that contain Retinols or Alpha Hydroxy Solutions, then I suggest that you only scrub once or twice a month, because the texture of your skin may be too thin, and you could cause drying and damage.
    After you have scrubbed, it is good to apply a mud mask. The mud mask contains minerals that are usually lost in the skin as one ages. It is also soothing and refreshing.
    You can find both the scrub and the mud mask at most local drug stores or beauty supply houses.
    Microdermabrasion can be a very abrasive treatment if your skin is not thick enough to handle it. In that case, you could actually tear down small capillaries and blood vessels, and do some serious damage to your skin. I do not recommend it to anyone who has not seen a trained professional who can analyze the skin prior to performing the service.
    Good luck to you.

    Neutrogena has a great little tool. It comes with a brush and disposable pads. You use it twice a week and will see results with the first use. Very inexpensive!

    I personally think that peels are better than scrubs-Philosophy makes a great one that I use called Microdelivery Triple Action Peel. Skin looks fresher and brighter after 2-3 uses. It costs $68.00 for a 3 month supply. If you really want a scrub, Clinque has their classic 7 Day Scrub Cream that is gentle but effective for around $20.00.

    As a Women over 50, I would be afraid this would really set my Rosacea on fire–maybe not but that would be my concern. I use an exfoliating gel by Skin Authority called Resurfacing Accelerator. I love it and I have seen the difference it makes in my skin. $21-$50 http://www.skinauthority.com/Resurfacing-Accelerator?sc=18&category=1935

    The best, inexpensive “do it yourself” home microdermabrasion kit used to be called the “Buf-Puf” and when gently used it does the trick! Anything more aggressive should not be used at home without the supervision of a dermatologist, since if you abrade deeper than the outer layer of the epidermis, you risk scarring, milia cysts, and other issues related to over-exfoliation.
