overheard: train your skin, women’s health magazine, May 2012


i recently came across this little tidbit of expert advice in the may issue of Women’s Health:

Microdermabrasion at the doctor’s office has been proven to increase cytokines in the skin, proteins involved in cell interactions, says Bank. ‘Microdermabrasion damages your skin, which sends a signal to cells that something has happened,’ he explains. This message kicks your skin’s metabolism into high gear: more cells communicate, get produced, and do their jobs. Start with weekly treatments for at least four weeks, then maintenance visits as needed.

you’re probably thinking, why is damaging my skin good?

well, as we age, our cells become sluggish.  they begin to take longer to communicate with one another and to do their “thang”, or to take action. if they aren’t functioning properly, then they don’t self-exfoliate,produce collagen, and repair damage as well as they could when they are working and communicating efficiently.

a little bit of microdermabrasion gives cells a reason to be on their toes! by forcing them to come in a repair damage, your cells get in the habit of communicating and functioning at their optimal best.
