What Can Skin Abrasion Do for Your Complexion?

People often ask how they can get a smoother, cleaner complexion.

Exfoliate!! At least twice a week for best results.

Exfoliation removes dead cells, unclogs pores.

It also helps smooths out even the roughest patchy problems and will bring a nice shine and glow to your complexion.

Skin abrasion - sometimes called dermabrasion, microdermabrasion, or exfoliation - is one of the best ways to revive dull dry patchy complexion.

Definition of Abrasion -

  • Abrasion: An abrasion or "excoriation" is a wearing away of the upper layer of dermis, as a result of applied friction force.

Skin dermabrasion is the process of rubbing and exfoliating to speed up the renewal process by loosening old cells and rebuild new ones.

Did you know that animals rub any sore area of their body against trees, fences, etc …..in order to speed up the healing process?

That’s because skin dermabrasion helps speed up healing and collagen production.

You can use skin abrasion to your advantage to help remove old scars, blemishes, and wrinkles.

Dermabrasion is one of the most overlooked anti-aging tip.

Home Dermabrasion Techniques

There are different skin dermabrasion techniques from professional microdermabrasion machines that use a rotating diamond edge wheel.................

to home microdermabrasion machines that use an aluminum rotating disk to abrasion creams that can be used at home more often.

While the professional microdermabrasion treatments are the most powerful and offer the fastest results, but they are also pretty expensive.

So for those on a budget - the home home dermabrasion treatments (machine and granular creams) are the best and offer great results over time.

How to Exfoliate Your Skin

There are a few home dermabrasion techniques you can do safely at home to keep your complexion smooth, soft, and clear.

The most simplest and least expensive is to use a wash cloth or scrubbing sponge every day. If you want a little more exfoliation try a sugar and baking soda paste by using an equal mixture of sugar and baking soda.

Apply this mixture to your skin and rub in circular motions all over your face and neck for a few seconds.

Then rinse well with cool water and apply a moisturizer right after. Do this a few times a week.

For a more intense dermabrasion and to reduce clogged, enlarged pores try a deeply exfoliating granular mineral cream.

This is my Favorite to use alone or in-between microdermabrasion machines!

It helps reduces sun damage and freckling, and enlarged pores....sort of gives your complexion an airbrushed look

Anti-Aging Skincare Routine

Incorporate skin abrasion in your anti-aging skincare routine by using one or all of home microdermabrasion techniques outlined on this page.

Here is a sample schedule of how to incorporate the skin dermabrasion into your daily schedule: --

  • Every time you wash your face – use a wash cloth or exfoliating sponge
  • Few times a week - I use the baking soda/sugar scrub. Also, consider using this on your whole body including the back of the arms, knees, and elbows. You won't have bumpy dry skin or dry patchy skin anymore.
  • Once a week use a more intense skin abrasion technique like the creamy granular mineral scrub. This is best used at night.
  • Every night apply your favorite moisturizing cream or if you have lots of wrinkles consider using hydrating anti wrinkle face creams and let it soak in over night. Because you've deeply exfoliated, these creams will absorb deeply for better results.


Since everyone is different and has different levels of skin sensitivity – be careful not to exfoliate too often. Find which frequency best suits your skin type.

Exfoliating mineral scrub creams and microdermabrasion machines can make your skin sensitive to sun, so always use a good Sun Screen. ................

Even in the winter and cloudy days.
