Hi my loves,
I wanted to chat with you super quick about my newest addiction- Microneedling.
The best part is that you can do this skin treatment at home for SO cheap!
Okay, now listen up…
What is mirconeedling?
Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), basically microneedling is a small device that is covered in small, shallow needles that essentially poke little holes into your skin.
Yes, I said the word needles… no, it doesn’t hurt. The microneedler’s that are designed for at home use are A LOT less scary and do not hurt. The one’s at the dermo tend to be a little bit bigger.
When you poke the little holes into your skin, you are actually causing a “micro-injury”, your brain gets an alert and tells your body to start healing- this allows your skin to start producing collagen.
Think of collagen as like glue for your skin. When we start to age, the glue doesn’t become as strong which leaves us with fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. But, when we boost our collagen we are telling our body to keep it coming and fast.
This bring me back to microneedling…
When those little needles poke holes into the surface of your skin it stimulates collagen production (your skins glue) which allows acne scars to heal, fine lines to be filled, and plumps your skin for an overall youthful and healthy glow.
Now, microneedling is AMAZING for the stimulation of collagen production but it also works wonders for the absorption of skin care products.
How to do it:
♥ Start with a clean face
♥ Apply facial oil
♥ Use microneedler all over face at a downward angle (use lips as center point)
♥ Apply more facial oil
♥ Use cold facial towel to close pores
♥ Use moisturizer
What facial oil should you use?
♥ Anti Aging
♥ Instant Glow
♥ Fights hyperpigmentation
♥ Helps with uneven skintone
♥ Prevent future damage by combating free radicals
Hyaluronic Acid Serum: (shown in picture above) I love using this serum especially when my skin is feeling dry because it works wonders for hydration.
♥ Plumps and hydrates dry, dull skin
♥ Assists in balancing skin moisture levels
♥ Speeds up skin-cell turnover, keeping new and healthy skin on the surface
♥ Helps diminish the appearance surface lines and wrinkles
♥ Naturally lifts and firms sagging skin
Pro-Retaxinol 2.5™ Retinol Serum: Retinol acts like a sort of skin hypnotist, convincing it to behave like younger skin. When broken down into retinoic acid, retinol penetrates deeply into the skin and communicates with skin cells, helping them to become healthier.
♥ Improve skin texture
♥ Decrease breakouts
♥ Reduce pore size
♥ Diminish brown or dark spots
♥ Create luminosity and glow
Doesn’t everything sound amazing?
A few things to note:
- NEVER use a microneedler over acne or open wounds. You could spread the bacteria all over your face leaving you with a nasty infection.
- If you have a pimple, go around the area
- ALWAYS test a small part of your skin first – before microneedling and using a new serum
- NEVER share your roller. Yuck!
- Clean after every use with soap and water
- Throw out and replace every 2-3 months to avoid bacteria
After microneedling you NEED to moisturize!. Even though you are going to be using a serum, microneedling disrupts your skin’s barrier. I like to use a cold facial towel to close pores and Kniepp’s Almond Blossom Face Cream
