Tips: how to use the crystals

The best place to use microdermabrasion crystals is in the bathroom, because you need a clean space, a mirror, lots of light and running warm water. Exfoliation can be done at any time during the day, however, if you are using this product for the first time try it out before bedtime so your skin can recover if there is any temporary redness or increased skin sensitivity. The micro crystals can be difficult to wash off over the sink, and a good time to use them would be just before the evening shower.
 
 
Here is what to do:
- Cleanse your face (neck, hands or whatever area you want abraded) with your own cleansing gel or foam that                 removes dirt and excess oil without drying the skin. Rinse your face with warm water after thoroughly cleaning your face.
- Get a plastic bowl or jar and mix a teaspoon of crystals with a cream, gel or oil of your choice. If you are making a             face cream for a dry/normal skin you can add shea butter, olive oil, almond oil, jojoba oil or rich moisturizing cream. If your skin is oily and acne prone consider pure alcohol-free aloe vera gel or cucumber gel. 
- Use the micro-crystal cream with your fingers on damp skin. Be particularly gentle on your cheeks as the skin here is    softer than on your forehead and chin. 
- Gently massage the cream with slow, upward motions for about 3 minutes, but don?t linger in one place for too long, or            you may irritate the skin.
- Wash the cream off thoroughly- use the shower if there are crystals which refuse to come off. Pat dry.
- Use your own moisturizer or nourishing cream (either night or day cream). 
 
 
One mistake many women make (myself included) is to overdo it with the abrasion. The crystals are very fine and you may not feel them at the time but they are working. Too much pressure or prolonged abrasion can damage the skin and cause irritations. Hydrate and soothe the skin after treatment with Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Wheat or Oat extracts, soothing and nourishing ingredients that help the skin recover. It?s very important to moisturize after the treatment with collagen rich cream, vitamin E oil or aloe vera to speed up cell turnover. There are some affordable wal-mart creams you can use like Palmer?s coco butter, St Ives Collagen Elastine lotion, Fruit of the Earth 100% aloe vera gel. Do not forget sun protection- some moisturizers have SPF 15 or higher. Sunscreen is essential to protect fresh skin from UV rays.

 

The area right under the eyes (you can feel the eyeball underneath) should not be exfoliated - this very sensitive area is very thin and does not need to be exfoliated. Hardier areas, such as your buttocks or legs can be scrubbed with greater vigor, while the more sensitive facial skin should be handled more gently. Great thing about loose crystals is that you can customize and match your skin type perfectly and in that way avoid irritation caused by chemical ingredients found in the cream or gel you never used before. Crystals do not disolve so you can use them with plain water just do not forget to moisturize afterwards. For face exfoliation use hydrating cream, aloe vera gel or hypoallergenic lotion/ cleanser that is organic, no parabens or anything else that can clogg your pores. For body use oils and creams rich in antioxidants and elastine such as olive oil, almond oil, vitamin e oil, coco shea butter and many moisturizing creams rich in collagen you can buy or create yourself.
