How does microdermabrasion elminate sun damage?

Sun Damage and Microdermabrasion

The sun is good for you! Yes, you read that right...but it's good in moderation, like everything else. While many physicians now recommend against the chemicals in sunblock, which can be absorbed into the skin, and favor thirty minutes in the sun to restore Vitamin D (not to mention lifting your mood), everybody should avoid sunburn. You already have been burned several times from family vacations in Hawaii and those marathon tan sessions by the pool when you were a teen. Can microdermabrasion help your flaking discolored brown-spotted wrinkled skin recover?

Since you can't be in the sun for several weeks after microdermabrasion treatment, you'll have no chance of sunburn. Get your vitamin D from supplements. And yes, microdermabrasion will eliminate sun damage. Before you fork over the $200-$300 cost of microdermabrasion, check with your dermatologist to see that you have no skin tumors, lesions or susicious-looking moles and pimples.

Microdermabrasion isn't recommended for skin cancer patients. Your surgeon or facialist will use the microdermabrasion system crystals to refresh skin dulled by sun damage, remove brown spots, shave away thickened skin and smooth out the wrinkles that become more pronounced from sun damage. After sun damage microdermabrasion treatment, be sure to use soothing moisturizers such as aloe-based products. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your new skin cells. Vitamins C and E will eliminate free radicals that still exist in your body and sabotage your skin. So don't be afraid of the sun thanks to microdermabrasion and "new" wisdom, but be sun smart.

I am SO glad i purchased the "Made from Earth" detox and renew products. Its is the healthiest microdermabrasion out there....and its all chemical free...
I have only used them for the last 2 weeks and WOW! I almost didn't use it last night because i thought my skin was already pretty smooth but i couldn't resist - i was just too excited.
First, let me say that i am 29, a student in graduate school. When i first went to college for many months my acne progressively got worse. I tried Proactiv but it was too drying, other drugstore brands (that used to work until my skin worsened), and even went on a prescription for a month for acne (i hated it).

Then i began trying products to retain moisture - and i LOVE the Made from Earth Vitamin Enhanced Moisturizer for that. Having success with it encouraged me to try their detox also - which is the "rooibos Tea Face Scrub".

I wanted to try it because while much of my blemishes are gone, my skin doesn't look very healthy. I have some scars that blend with my freckles and my skin tone looks terrible. I wanted professional microdermabrasion but i am a college student - not gonna happen on my salary. Plus, I am super healthy and dont want to put any harmful chemicals in my body or on my skin.

Luckily i did splurge and spent around $120 on this kit and i am so glad i did.. .it comes with a discount of you buy both rpoducts together. . .
It has removed some of the dry skin patches near my nostrils and left my skin even softer! Softer than i ever imagined! The combination of the scrub daily and the enhanced moisturizer have greatly reduced my blackheads and my skin feels firmer.
This will be in my skin care routine FOREVER! For a graduate college student, this is a bit pricey - but it works! So stop wasting money on cheaper things that don't work and try this. I bought online at ...some reviews also said its cheaper to buy online
