I cannot believe that it has been 6 months since I committed to taking better care of my skin. Since then I have done 10 microcurrent treatments (links to all of my recaps are at the bottom of this post along with my treatment timeline) and also seven monthly facials. I will say that taking care of your skin is not always an easy task and sometimes it can be frustrating, like when you run out of your favorite zit cream and you just happen to have a break out during that time of the month. However, the long term and lasting results are well worth it! Thankfully I've been recording my journey, because it's hard to look in the mirror after 6 months and see all of the changes. Having these photos have really put it into perspective for me.
For example, on June 24th I had a work event where this video was recording. It was just a couple days after my 8th microcurrent treatment. I took my photos and I could tell some minor changes, but it's hard to see how your face looks when it's moving in a photo. When I saw this video I was blown away! I couldn't believe that for one, I'm smiling and you can't see my elevens (wrinkles between my eyebrows) or my crows feet at the edges of my eyes. And secondly, I've never seen so much collagen in my cheekbones or my lips. Lastly, my skin is still glowing and looks smooth!
My skin doesn't always look this great. You've seen the photos without makeup, but with the right routine, product, diet, exercise, etc. it's good to know that I can have my best skin and hopefully I can prevent all of those external factors from premature wrinkles, sun spots, loss of elasticity or breakouts.
Microcurrent 6 Month Update
This month my skin was going through a lot of changes with the summer weather months and you can see it in a couple breakouts. What I notice most is the disappearance of my elevens, crows feet and reduction in pinkness.
I accidentally forgot to take the photos before putting on my makeup, but I kept my face makeup to a minimal and went heavier on the eyes, so you can still see the areas of my breakouts. This month I was not only affected by the weather, but also lack of exercise, a healthy diet and sleep. Those things can really add up in a negative way! Kimberly introduced me to Rhonda Allison's Purifying Lotion. I put this on after cleansing in the morning and it acts as a toner without being so harsh. It is helping to remove the dirt and oils that have built up from the weather and from the lack of a healthy lifestyle. I started to notice minimal results that added up over time. Now I even use it on my chest and back when I have breakouts there too, which help to calm them down and clear them up.
