The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Skin Today

There are many weird and wonderful beauty treatments on the market today and it’s safe to say that over the years I’ve tried my fair share of them. In my quest for perfect skin I’ve been zapped, pricked, poked, scraped, rolled and lasered – and that’s just the beginning. But nothing has been more effective or given me better results than committing to a year long Caci Skin Correcting programme.

In the past I’ve been very sporadic with my skincare treatments. Even with the best of intentions life just seems to get in the way sometimes. But committing to a programme of personalised treatments aimed at helping me achieve my specific skin goals has been a complete game-changer. This programme has meant that I’ve had regular treatments specifically tailored to my individual needs. If it’s left up to me I just generally book myself in for an occasional relaxing facial and wonder why my skin isn’t changing. Like anything in life, unless you start with a goal in mind and a plan of attack to reach that goal then nothing really changes. This is why the occasional relaxing facial was never going to cut it for me. My 48-year-old skin needed more hard-hitting treatments like Microdermabrasion and Collagen Induction Therapy for me to see any real results.

Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as Dermal Rolling or skin needling is possibly one of the craziest things I’ve ever undergone but it also gave me the best results. The treatment is commonly used to address fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring and also to improve the texture and tightness of your skin. It basically causes microscopic injuries which encourages lots of new collagen up to the surface of the skin to start healing. Collagen is what repairs and heals our skin and keeps it looking youthful. As we get older our collagen production slows down so dermal rolling basically helps to speed it up again. This treatment along with Microdermabrasion and using hard-hitting Murad skincare products have helped me get the skin I’ve always wanted. Over the past year I’ve seen improvements in the appearance of my fine lines but most importantly my pigmentation has almost entirely disappeared which has been huge for me.

What I’ve also realised is that caring for your skin is an ongoing commitment and certainly as you get older it’s important to keep on top of it with regular skin treatments instead of simply relying on an occasional feel-good facial. I liken my Reformaskin plan to joining a gym except instead of working on my body it’s working on my skin. If I wasn’t a member of a gym my workouts would be pretty hit and miss and so would my results. If I’m not committed to a tailored skin care treatment plan then it’s not surprising I won’t see any real results.

So the moral of this story is to not leave it as long as me. If you start taking care of your skin now – your future self will thank you for it – promise!

If you’d like to kick-start your own skin correcting journey, Caci has a special offer until the end of August: Book a skin treatment consultation and try a Microdermabrasion (one of my personal faves) for only $50 (it’s usually $100).
