Now that the temps in NYC have reached well above 80 degrees, I’ve been feeling extra sticky as I trek around the city. The more I sweat, the more my pores feel clogged and I’m in need of a little extra cleansing at night when I wash my face. For the past several months I have been using the Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System ($22.99), which is meant to cleanse and exfoliate the skin while helping reduce the signs of aging.
The Neutrogena Microdermabrasion System comes with a vibrating applicator and rejuvenating puffs infused with ultra-fine crystals and mild purifiers. Simply put one of the puffs onto the attachment head, run under lukewarm water, flick on the vibrating applicator and gently move along your face. There are also two speed options incase you have more sensitive skin.
I literally noticed a more deep clean after my first use – my skin was more radiant, smooth and refreshed. I really felt like it got that dirt and grime from the day that a normal face wash couldn’t have done. Since the vibration gives a much more intense cleanse, I generally only use it about 2 – 3 times a week to avoid skin irritation. I urge you, get one now!
