This month, I am loving the things that make me clean.
Let's start with my feet. I have very very dry skin. My heels are dry and even have cracks in them. To slough off dead, dry skin, nothing works better than my local pumice stone. I have tried a lot of the imported variations but they can't hold a candle to this stone. They are typically not sold in stores, so imagine my joy when I walked into Fig Health Store, Lekki and saw them displayed beautifully in a basket. I bought 3 of them. At N350 each, I consider that a good deal.
I typically use the pumice stones once a week and follow up with a deep moisturizing treatment. if I feel like my feet need more TLC, I slather cream on them and sleep in socks. Works every time.
I have spoken about my Clarisonic before. After years of using my hands, wash cloths, soft sponges, medium sponges et al without much satisfaction, I came across the Clarisonic Aria about a year ago. I use it once a day - typically at night. Let's just say that my facial skin has never been the same. I now spend less on facial products because my face is so clean, my products sink in faster. Also, that elusive glow girls chase after? With the truly clean skin the Clarisonic gives, you will come closer to having it.
While my skin is actually quite good and acne free, it has gotten even better with the Clarisonic. It is a product I would advice everyone to get.
I bought mine straight off the Clarisonic website. They don't ship to Nigeria, unfortunately.
The first time I had these used on me were at a Hammam treatment. I have been to more Hammam treatments since that initial one but never thought to use the gloves on myself. On a whim, I bought a pair about 2 months ago and I do not know why I didn't do so sooner. Anyone that has had a Hammam knows that those ladies don't play with these gloves. By the time you are done with the treatment, a whole lotta dead skin and dirt is left behind - I figured that I could get a similar effect. The first time I used them on myself, Chile! lemme tell you that I was puzzled at the brown water pooling at my feet in the shower when I rinsed off.
These babies rid the skin of dead cells and reveal smoother, skin. I do not hurt myself by rubbing myself raw. A sensible pressure will still give you the desired effect. I get a lot of questions about what products can give glowing skin. Yes, I used the word "give" and not "reveal", intentionally. Apart from good make-up, which gives only a temporary glow, I don't believe that there is a product that can give it to you. Wash your body and face properly and you may be able to reveal that glow.
I bought these for between N850 - N1000 at Ebeano Supermarket.
Have you used any of these products before?
