She SAID: New Year, New Skin

Shahada Karim

Every year we start with the promise of new… everything. Most of us know what we want (great body/skin/cash flow… all the basics, you know) but have no idea how to get there. There is no shortage of products and devices on the market that promise to deliver the best results. The trick is to locate the best one for you, without breaking the bank.

PMD Personal Microdermabrasion System

This little device is firmly reserved for the person who’s over the local dermatologist and esthetician, and who is really (really) good at following directions. Once a week, you’re instructed to run the device over dry skin using the appropriate exfoliating head. One pass is all you need (no matter what you think). Otherwise you end up looking like you got into a fight with a dragon, and that’s no fun for anyone. If you do it right, the result is gorgeous, glowing skin. Just don’t toss the manual because you’re going to need it.

Phyto-C Velvet Gel

Heanewskin1l your newly exfoliated skin with a potent blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins B3 and B12. This soothing gel works quickly after microdermabrasion, acid peels, or any other deep exfoliating treatment. It can also be used daily for skin health and maintenance. The formula plays well with others, and should be used as the first step after cleansing, in any current skin care routine.


Clarisonic Smart Profilenewskin3

If you’re ready to take treatments below the neck, Clarisonic’s new Smart Profile might be just what does a body good. The face and body sonic cleanser is designed to deep clean and stimulate blood circulation. The device features 4 speeds to customize to your individual needs.

Karin Herzog Silhouette Cream

newskin2Finish the job with a cream designed to increase blood flow and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Karin Herzog Silhouette cream contains 4% active oxygen (peroxide), with skin care staples like Salicylic Acid and Vitamin E. Some users report losing nearly an inch off the treated areas. Testimonials aside, keep in mind that the effects of this cream are temporary; it works as long as you use it. For long term results, a healthy diet and regular exercise is recommended.
