So after making the decision to stop colouring my hair (well not quite as it has loads of colours added but no base!) I’ve decided to concentrate on looking after my poor skin which has had a lifetime of specialist care via a facecloth, soap and whatever moisturiser was on special at the super market that week. I also had to get some ‘bits’ burned off my nose and my Doctor enforced the importance of daily SPF cream.
I visited good old Groupon after talking to my friend Penny who is a specialist in the field of skin but unfortunately lives in a different city to me. She advised some microdermabrasion treatment so I visited Groupon to look for some deals.
I tried out 3 different places which were all fine but place number 4 impressed!
The lovely Leanne not only ‘microdermabrased me’ without leaving any burn-like marks (they do disappear in a couple of days) but she also gave me a skin analysis. This involves taking photos of my skin and pointing out where the weaknesses are. She did it before and after the treatment and even I could see the difference. I liked her skin range because she said they were not about pretty smelly, nice-feeling creams but about fixing the problems. I liked that.
Leanne also has the most fabulous skin herself which I would consider her best advertising.
So after my 6 month research I have settled on a 6 week programme of microdermabrasion treatment, some special light treatments and my daily skin care routine which I’ve embarked on for the first time in 54 years!
I’ve also bought myself a big floppy sunhat and one of those visor cap things for my walk/runs.
At the end of the 6 weeks I’m going to post the before and after pics of my skin and you can see the results!
