20th November 2008 17:31Hi all My usual cleansing routine is to use a face scrub in the morning followed by moisturiser. I usually don't cleanse ind the evening as I don't wear make-up during the day At weekends I'd usually use a cleanser and remove it with cotton wool, tone & moisturise. Anyway, I had my first session of microdermabrasion on Saturday. When I explained that I would use a face scrub most days, the therapist was aghast She said I was putting my skin through way too much and I should just use a mild face wash. So since Saturday I've just used a normal face wash but it seems without using the scrub my skin looks dull and I can see fine lines. What's going on??! I thought I'd look radiant after the MD! Have I been using facial scrubs for too long now that my skin is dependent on it and is scrubbed so much to within an inch of it's life that the MD is of no use to me? Is it bad to be exfoliating every day even though it says on the packaging "daily exfoliator", "for everyday use", etc. I usually have quite good skin for my age and just wanted the MD to reduce a few acne scars - not really to get ride of fine lines. Any suggestions / advice would be welcome. Hope this all makes sense!
