Exfoliation Old Practice New Skin

When I first started to do some research on this subject I had no idea it had been going on for so long. Exfoliation originates from the Latin word (exfobaie) which means "strip off leaves". It seems this practice has been going on for quite a long time, I mean since the Middle Ages long time. Back in the Middle ages they used old wine with tartaic acid as it's active ingredient. In Egypt the latic acid in sour milk was usedin this practice according to an article authored by Gabriella Fabbrocini MBBSS, from the Universita degli Studi, Napoli, Federicoii, Italy.

Again according to "New ApeelSystems" a business which offers exfoliation treatments, the Egyptians are said to be the first that we know of that used their own techinques of dermabrasion for improving and softening their skin.These techinques included using pumice stone, which we still use today but usually only for the feet. Alabaster was also used to remove blemishes and rough spots. Maybe that is where the term "she has alabaster skin" came from? I'm just guessing but it makes sense must have of been a little painful I would think as well.

Now we all know that the cosmetic industry makes billions of dollars a year mostly on us woman with every promise of the "new wrinkle cream' or the new "uplifting cream" that thousands of woman saw results on after two weeks blah, blah. Whenyou think about it you are rubbing in new cream on old damaged skin and just how far can it really penatrate? Makes sense that if you could get rid of some old layers and uncover the fresh skin underneath the creams would or should work better.

I was watching an informerical which I don't do very often and saw this new product called NuBrilliance. I had already heard of and checked out from dematologist's websites the process of chemical skin peels and microdermabrasion. This product used suction and diamond head tips to exfoliate the old skin cells from the surface of the skin and you could use it on your face, neck, elbows even around your knees where you can get patches of old dried skin. The women's skin did look fresher afterward but I was of course skeptical. I looked up the product and it had good reviews so I went ahead and bought it. For the price you pay for going to spas and salons it was cheaper to buy your own. I have to say after using it three times a week for two weeks I really could see results and I am fifty eight years old. I began to get complements that I looked less tired and "fresher," happy days! They send you a supply of creams to go with it but make sure you keep your skin moisturized because as you clean away the dead surface cells it will get dry so drink more liquids and keep it soft.

Now I am honestly telling you that I have nothing to do with receiving any compensation for writing this article about the product nor do I have anything to do with the company. I just thought that I would pass the information on, and they tell you in the instructions if you have any skin problems do not use the product without asking your doctor first.
