All regular TGATP readers know that I strongly advocate turning your home into a spa with the latest in home beauty gadgets. There is simply no reason for any woman to age badly with the slew of wonderful products on the market. The latest gadget to join my anti-aging arsenal is the new at-home microdermabrasion device, Riiviva, which we were sent home with try out at a recent breakfast. I have been using it for the past month and I have to say, my skin has never looked better!
Microdermabrasion is one of the most sought after treatments in spas and dermatologist’s office. Its benefits for women of every age are numerous. For teens and adults with acne prone skin, microdermabrasion can lessen outbreaks through removal of the outer layers of skin that are clogging the pores. For aging skin, it reverses the visible signs of sun damage, crows feet, deep forehead wrinkles, big pores and lip feathering. However, for most women on a budget, professional treatments are too costly. Enter the Riiviva which delivers professional quality microermabrasion in the privacy of your home. Just 15 minute treatments once a week and your skin is completely transformed.
The Riiviva comes with 3 diamond (yes diamonds!) tips – fine, medium and coarse – for the face. Start with the fine and work your way up based on your skin sensitivity. But the extraordinary Riiviva is not just for use on the face, it also can be used on your body. Microdermabrasion also improves keratosis pilaris, also known as “chicken skin” which is an unslightly patch of red bump on the back of the arms and eliminates stretch marks and other scarring. I am in the process of releasing a ton of extra weight that I have amassed through emotional eating, so I am looking forward to trying it out on my belly! It retails for just $299, which is about the cost of one in-office treatment, so it’s well worth the investment.
