I talked about the basics of my skincare routine, then I covered face masks and pore strips so today, in my last post of this series, I’m going to show you what other little devices, if you’d like to call them like that, I use on my skin. Besides using my PMD (personal microderm, which I reviewed in a previous post) religiously, I have a couple of other things that I use on my face that are not actual skincare products but they do make a difference in my skin so obviously they’ve become regulars in my routine as well.
Magnitone Cleansing Brush
I’ve wanted to try a cleansing brush for ages but I’ve never got the courage to get spendy on one, as they are quite expensive. When I started to get an enormous amount of spots on my face of course I wanted to try everything that could improve my condition, so amongst other products, I decided to get a cleansing brush as well. I opted for a Magnitone Barefaced because I’ve heard so many good things about it and it’s also reasonably priced compared to other brushes.
I’ve noticed how life changing my Magnitone brush was after the very first use. My skin never felt so smooth and thoroughly cleansed like that before. If you thought that using your hands to cleanse can get rid of all the dirt and impurities from your face, you were wrong. The Magnitone it’s so much more effective and it not only deep-cleanses your skin but it also tones it. The brush is also really gentle so I’ve never experienced irritations or anything and I love how soft and glowy it makes my skin look.
At first I was using this twice a day, morning and evening but now I’m only using it at night, to make sure all my makeup, dirt and oils are well removed. I literally don’t know how my skin survived before trying a cleansing brush.
This is the scariest little thing that’s ever touched my face, but you gotta do what you gotta do to try and get rid of those annoying acne scars. Dermarolling, also known as micro-needling, stimulates collagen growth which significantly improves the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch mark, and acne scars. Dermarollers also allow products like creams, gels and oils to get absorbed far more effectively into the skin.
You can do micro-needling in office but treatments are quite expensive and it takes a bunch of sessions before you start seeing results. One day I was doing some research and I came across a blog post all about the dermaroller and how you can do it at home. The person who wrote the post bought hers on Amazon for a really good price and she was incredibly happy with it. Her before and after pictures of her skin were insane! So I went on Amazon and ordered a dermaroller hoping to see some changes in my skin as well.
After watching all the existing Youtube videos on how to roll this thing on my face, I finally did it. After the first use I was left in tears because believe it or not, rolling some needles up and down your face isn’t very pleasant. However, after a couple of weeks, I got used to that sensation and now I feel like I’m giving my face a massage. I use my dermaroller once a week on a clean and dry face.
I’m seeing amazing results from this micro-needling process and I’m glad I bit the bullet and tried it. A lot of my acne scars are now gone and other are slowly fading and my skin is all around brighter and smoother. Along with the skincare products that I use (you can check out my skincare routine post here). I’m making progress towards a clearer skin.
I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know in the comments if you’ve ever used a cleansing brush and what are your thoughts on the dermaroller!
