I have had it said time and again that being geek and sexy do not go together. Yet I love to consider myself as the exact antithesis of this common wisdom. Going by the compliments I get every day from colleagues and acquaintances, I must be doing a pretty good job of it.
You see, I am on the fast lane when it comes to tech and computer gadgetry. Add to this the fact that I am also a “hands-on mother” and you would be forgiven to think that I have little time to spruce myself up. In a way you would be right. Finding time for endless hours in beauty and hair salons just isn’t my thing. But I have found a way to replicate the sort of beauty and anti aging treatments you get in a beauty salon right in the confines of my home.
When I realized that the pressure and harried nature of my job combined with the thousand cares every mother must attend to were wreaking a havoc on my appearance, I knew it was time to act. Fortunately, I was brought up to proactively look for solutions when problems cropped up rather than sitting back and complaining. As I said earlier, I am into computers and looking for solutions online was an obvious choice. The type of DIY beauty treatments I found and began practising have literally transformed my life and rejuvenated my face and skin.
Two of the most effective DIY treatments I use are:
- Derma rolling
- High frequency facial therapy
When I first came across an online site advocating the use of derma rollers to treat fine lines and wrinkles, I was intrigued but more skeptical than convinced. My despondency was further heightened when I had a look at the nifty device itself. Quite frankly, it looked more like an instrument of torture borrowed from the middle ages than a means to a more youthful, flawless skin!
I began using a derma roller to treat the acne scars on my face at the turn of the decade, just when the devices were getting acceptance in mainstream beauty and cosmetic industry. At first, I did not notice any remarkable changes but I am someone who believes that once I put my hand at something, I have no option but to see it through.
I was rewarded ninety days or so into my treatment regimen when a cousin commented how my face had improved since we last met. Since the changes are often so gradual and infinitesimal, it can be difficult to detect them on your own even over time. But if you follow through, I can assure you the changes will invariably show.
I have recently discovered that derma rollers are not just good for facial beauty treatment but also good for stretch marks. After my last pregnancy, I was left with a set of unsightly stretch marks on my tummy. After months of derma rolling, they are now barely perceptible! But you don’t have to take my word for it, you can learn more by checking out this detailed review of derma rollers.
High Frequency Facial Therapy
After scouring the net for DIY solution for sagging skin, I was convinced that high frequency facial therapy was the way to go. According to a number of professional experts, the method is much akin to laser therapy albeit at a much much lower cost. All that remained for me was to find a high frequency device that was effective and vouchsafed by expert opinion.
All my research on the web led to one product without a doubt: the Derma Wand. Barely two month into using the Derma Wand, all the skin which had began sagging below the jawline and upper neck area was noticeably tauter. But that is just me.
