Much Overlooked Skin Improvement Technique

Much Overlooked Skin Improvement Technique

It’s easy to dive straight into overly technical, or intrusive procedures when you’re looking for that beauty ‘quick fix’.

But sometimes improving your appearance, and in particular the outward quality of your skins appearance, can be achieved by some very simple techniques which are easily applied.

Our skin constantly renews and rebuilds itself. So it naturally sheds older, dead skins cells on a daily basis. This process happens all by itself and needs no help of course.

But it also means that the outer layers of our skin, the part that everyone sees, is rarely looking at it’s best. Because the newer, fresher, brighter skins cells are underneath the old ones that are waiting to drop off. Makes a lot of sense, right?

exfoliateAnd this is the whole point of exfoliation.

This simple process of gently removing the dull, old skin on the very surface can make a huge difference to your skins outward appearance. It should not be underestimated, particularly on the face.

The easiest way to exfoliate is to simply use a mitt designed for the purpose. There are many different kinds available, but it is worth spending a little more to get really good results. One that regularly gets very positive reviews is the Baiden mitten. This all over body mitt has those old skin cells literally rolling off in layers, leaving fresher glowing healthy looking skin beneath. If you watch the video demonstrating how to use it you’ll be pretty amazed at the potential.

It is one of the more expensive products however, so if your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far, you can also get some very good results with the Dermasuri mitt ( This one looks great, costs less, but will still last you a reasonable period of time too.

An Extra Benefit

There is a major side benefit to all this exfoliation too. Which is that you can actually get better results from any expensive creams or lotions that you are already using. This is because the skin can better absorb them, and get them to down to the layers where they do what they are supposed to be doing and therefore do you the most good.

That alone makes the price of a quality exfoliation mitt worth it many times over.

Our skins are of course a living organ. It’s the largest organ in the body, weighing in at somewhere between 3kg and 4kg. A figure that doesn’t fail to surprise most people. Or that we’ve got something like 2 square meters of skin area all told.

So it makes sense to maximise the health of that organ just like any other. The difference with our skin though is that it’s also one of the most visible organs in our body. So it’s worth taking extra care of that aspect too.

Not Just Skin Deep

As any anatomy student will confirm, beauty is not just skin deep.

I think there’s a joke in there somewhere just trying to get out. But I’ll leave it at that 🙂

But of course bone structure and alignment are actually at the core of what we consider modern beauty. Which itself is a moving target – what’s considered healthy and beautiful today is definitely not the same as that we considered healthy a hundred years ago!

Not just because our knowledge and understanding has changed. But also because tastes and fashions change too.

Those ‘fashions’ dictate at the very core how we desire to look.

And that means everything from what we consider ‘fat’ to even the  very color of our skins. Look at reviews of the Meladerm cream for example. That’s not a product we would have been looking for or even making just 50 years ago.


But this kind of whitening skin cream product has now become very popular, particularly amongst ethnicities with naturally darker skin who are looking for a mild to moderate lightening effect, to change appearance and tone of their natural skin color.

It’s interesting that these products also have many other uses, you can even use it as an armpit whitening cream. Which doesn’t seem to be something men would ever use themselves, but women are actively seeking out ways to whiten the skin in their armpit areas.

Such fashions change – as lighter skinned people attempt to tan themselves darker, and vice versa.


Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness

It’s an important campaign – simply because awareness is the best possible prevention.


5 year survival rates are now 100% with detection at stage 0 and I – even at Stage II it’s 93%.

So that’s how important awareness is.
