Re: I have a secret
Mar 30, 2003
Hi all,
I'm 46 and I've used abrasives (pumice stones, buf-pufs, scrubs, etc.) for 30 years because they work, just as Dixie described. The down side is that you end up with a LOT of raised capillaries, you know, those tiny red lines on your face. The good news is that the positive effects of abrasives are real and long-lasting because exfoliation of any kind causes your body to produce lots of new skin cells... think of the smooth skin you get when a skinned knee heals. You just have to decide if it's worth all those little red "spider" veins on your face.
For me, it's been worth it!
P.S. Be sure to follow with a very gentle moisturizer like Cetaphil, or even mineral oil or vaseline.
