As most you may know I am not working right now. We moved to northern Florida after living in South Florida for over 30 years.

I worked in a doctor’s office that also had a skin care clinic. I loved visiting the skin care clinic!
Katheryn is the esthetician there and she gave wonderful microdermabrasions and facials!
Fortunately we could get ours done at a great price, but was usually not the same that a full paying customer received. It depended on how much time we had to visit. Usually only a half hour at lunch was all the time I could spare.
Before the “clinic” was opened I tried one of those microdermabrasion at home kits. It had a little spinning brush and seemed to work well. That was probably 10 years ago and I am ready to check out what is new in home kits. Florida sun can damage your skin for sure. I’ve been looking around online, at sites like ShopNBC, and have found some great microdermabrasion at home kits that I might be able to use.



Basically microdermabrasion removes the top layer of skin, the dead skin. It’s a non-invasive treatment that can be done in a doctor’s office, salon, or at home. Dermabrasion is similar in procedure, but removes deeper layers. After a microdermabrsion your skin may be sensitive. I remember getting mine on a Friday and Katheryn always telling me to wear lots of sunscreen over the weekend!
I wash my face and wear sunscreen, but it’s time I got back into a routine!
Do you microdermabrasion often?
