Microdermabrasion is typically done at a dermatologist's office with an instrument that takes off the top layer of skin. However, it can be expensive and takes half an hour or more. You can save money and time doing your own microdermabrasion at home.

Sugar and salt are the main ingredients in Rodan + Fields: Enhancements Body Micro-Dermabrasion, and it's these grainy particles that will slough off your skin. They're contained in a bright yellow base that's slightly waxy and acts as a buffer to prevent over scrubbing. The formula smells medicinal initially but the scent fades quickly. It's a very easy product to use, plus it isn't messy at all and is perfect for traveling. Beware if you have extra-sensitive skin, though, as it may be a bit too abrasive.

Rodan + Fields: Enhancements Mirco-Dermabrasion Paste

Rodan + Fields: Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste  is an oil-free exfoliating treatment that mimics microdermabrasion by getting rid of off dead skin cells. This promotes cells to turn over quicker which leads to healthier looking skin that's amazingly soft.

Sugar and salt are the main ingredients for exfoliation and Vitamins C and E add hydration and stave off free-radicals. The combination not only helps to improve the skin's texture, it also cleans out blackheads, helps to reduce pore size, and minimize lines and wrinkles.

This paste is quite thick so you only need a little. Try a dime sized amount and rub it in a circular motion for a minute. It's grainy but because it has some dimethicone in it, it has a nice slip which prevents over scrubbing. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. If you have sensitive skin, dampen your face first and then use the Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste.

You can replace your facial cleanser with Rodan + Fields: Enhancements Micro-Dermabrasion Paste one to three times a week, depending on your skin.

Rodan + Fields Anti-Age Gentle Exfoliating Wash isn't your normal anti-aging cleanser. Instead of a milky or hydrating cleanser, this is a clay-based product with small, but effective, particles to exfoliate while cleansing. But no matter how long I rinsed my face in the shower, I came out with product still on my skin. Every time.
