D.I.Y Microdermabrasion (a cure to thesis)

Reposted this from my old blog.

Seriously thesis people.. we all need this! I am super stressed out with our thesis moreso, I am losing so much sleep. I just can't wait for this to be over so I could pamper myself and get back on my beauty routine.

I am no beauty guru, but if Anne Curtis could somehow manage to pretend she could sing for a day and had all her tickets sold out for her Araneta concert..  I think I can also pretend I'm a beauty guru. Right? and also, I have decided to do beauty DIY recipes for as many as I can. ha! so let's start.

First, what is Microdermabrasion?
"microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that works to reduce acne scars, discoloration, fine lines, and other imperfections with the use of a mechanical tool and some type of solution. It is a non-surgical procedure that abrades less deeply than it's more intense cousin, the dermabrasion. While the two processes do have some similarities, the recovery time on a microdermabrasion is much less, making it more popular with people who are looking for an instant pick me up and brighter skin."

But unfortunately, having it done is shit expensive so this DIY recipe is the bomb!

Here goes..

First step: You have to clean your face first. I usually use the Ponds facial scrub everyday but however whenever I do this DIY microdermabrasion I just use this Perfect Whip from Shiseido. So I suggest you guys should use something as foamy as this and no scrubs please because this DIY recipe will do the scrubbing for you later.

After cleaning your face, make sure to use soft cloth to dry it.

Second step: You need a measuring 1/4 tsp, baking soda, a small bowl and water.
  • Put 1/4 tsp of baking soda, make it three times.
  • Measure just 1/4 tsp of water and mix it well.
REMEMBER: Don't go too overboard on the water, you are looking for a paste that you can pick up with your fingers and use as a scrub, 1/4 tsp of water should be enough.

So, once you have your paste, pat your face with water, don't wash it.. you just need to kinda wet the face. After that you can now apply the paste to your clean face and start gently scrubbing in a circular motion.

Keep adding the paste as needed, until you have really given yourself a good scrub on your entire face, as well as the the entire jaw line, which can be really prone to blemishes (according to the expert).

It's kinda stingy but don't panic, just relax and rinse with warm water.

The most important part is the Third step:  Moisturize. You need to put a moisturizer on your face to maintain the oil level on your face, cause exfoliating can leave your skin dry. So its really important that you should take this step.

I can honestly say that this one has got to be the best DIY recipe for skin that I have tried so far (thanks to Lauren Conrad). Now I can have my effortless exfoliating scrub at home. 

Try it too.. I swear, this will make your day!

I have tons of DIY recipes to share so stay tuned! :)
Good luck ladies and stay pretty. xxx

  1. When something goes wrong with your facial skin as a result of acne breakouts, burns or aging and there are large pores prominent on your skin then you should always go for microdermabrasion with ultrasound.


I would like to hear from you. :)
