Many people want healthy, youthful skin without the invasive procedures that plastic surgery offers. Microdermabrasion works to fulfill this need using a technique of simply buffering the surface layer of skin through exfoliation. The process is also called micro-epi-dermabrasion because it only affects the epidermis, which keeps it from being harmful, painful, or damaging to the new skin. This process removes that outer layer of dead skin cells with a sensation that has been reported to feel like a cat licking the skin. It has become a popular treatment that is performed on the face, neck, hands, chest and arms. Here are the different tools, materials, and techniques needed for accomplishing the new, glowing skin effects at home and in a professional setting.

The Home Process

Microdermabrasion was once a completely natural treatment that did not require specialized equipment or tools. Organic ingredients such as diamond tips, shells, plants, and sugar are still used today in homemade concoctions. Even brushes or bristle tips can be an alternative to salon treatments.

For those wanting to do the home treatment without the work of mixing the right materials, ready-made treatments are sold in jars for about $50-80. By using the hands to rub either the organic or ready-made creams and scrubs onto the skin, the particles and crystals remove the dead skin of the top stratum corneum layer, while the nutrients moisturize and hydrate the new skin.

Food that contains fibre makes you feel full along with providing you with necessary energy. When you eat fibre-rich foods, you feel full quickly which prevents you from eating more.
