Pro – Tip : Radiant skin on a budget

17 Apr

Ladies, exfoliating your lovely faces is a must in your regular beauty routine. How else do you think we are able to keep our youthful appearances?

Certain friends in the med spa business have told us “Girl, you need to scrub daily!”  And because we listen to anyone in a lab coat, we do.

There are so many products on the market aimed to exfoliate and scrub and promise to reveal a more youthful you. A lot of those products are really good, but the costs add up. Especially if you are looking to do this every day. Also to keep in mind, many drug store scrubs are actually very harsh and can break capillaries causing damage to your skin. Dreadful!

Don’t fret, we found a solution in the form of raw silk!

What it is – MicrodermaMitt $27.00 for 1

What it does – 

Reveals Smoother, Younger, and more Radiant Skin Instantly! This reusable 100% Natural Face Mitt deeply exfoliates while it gently lifts and removes dead, dry and dull skin cells using only water.  Great for Sensitive Skin!

Our review – this is safe and gentle enough to use daily.  Sometimes twice a day, we won’t lie.  This helps tremendously with dry, peeling skin (think on the bridge of the nose).  Your face will feel smooth and healthy.  

There are 3 versions of this: for teens, for zit (the ZitMitt 🙂 ), and the original/regular.

The manufacturer recommends changing every 6 months or so, but we have found this lasts well into the 1 year mark.  Bonus – you can use the old one in the shower after you buy a new replacement.  You must be vigilant to wash this after each use and air dry.  Otherwise  grossness may happen.

On top of your daily Mitt routine, we were recommended to do a deeper scrub. Once or twice a week, since taking off too much skin isn’t better for you in the long run.

Again, there are mountains of products on the market.  However, we found recipes to make our own!!!

What it is – Honey and coffee, some prefer to add a bit of an oil to the mix.  You can keep this in a fancy jar in your bathroom.    Combine honey, coffee grounds (unmade, some prefer seeped grounds.  If you are using used grounds, these can go moldy, you can add some lemon juice to act as a preservative) in a jar.  Find a consistency that you like.  Some like more honey, others more coffee.  This is yours, customize for you because you are special, honey!

What is does – deep scrub 1 to 2x a week.  Bonus points – the caffeine in coffee helps to tighten your face as it exfoliates.  This can also double as a mask!  Leave on for a few minutes and then scrub off.  Gently!

We won’t do the math for you on this one, since honey, coffee, and oil prices vary depending on market and brand.  But it is CHEAP!

So go forth, my lovelies and reveal the more radiant you!

    This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
