Eco-friendly skincare is a trend that has been growing for years now. With our planet facing large amounts of pollution and a questionable future, we are turning towards all things vegan and environmentally safe. But who would have ever expected that a girl’s best friend would be a part of that movement? Diamonds are always a great accessory to any girls look, but why not add these gems to our skin care to!
Microdermabrasion is usually done with a series of different crystals. The process is simple, your skin is exfoliated and then the dead skin cells are vacuumed up into the system. With the crystal based systems, the exfoliation process is different. It’s best understood as a “sand blasting” of the skin where small particles of the crystal are forced quickly into the skin, essentially blasting off dead skin and dirt cells. These cells are then vacuumed up into the device and stored for later disposal. While this may seem harmless, there are hidden dangers that come along with this method. Small crystal particles can be inhaled and cause damage to lungs and other internal organs. If not disposed of correctly, the crystal particles end up in the oceans and are highly toxic to many species of aquatic organisms. Crystals also need replacing and end up being more costly to the patients. These drawbacks are hard to reason against.
How does the diamond work?
The diamond system is a very different process entirely, without the environmental and health problems. With a diamond tip that exfoliates the skin when it makes contact, there are no particles that may cause damage. The same vacuum idea sucks up the dead skin cells and dirt that is removed from the microdermabrasion process, but without the harmful crystal particles that may end up in the ocean. We know that using a diamond in your skin treatments may sound silly, but it’s with your best interest in mind!
Eco-friendly skincare is a trend that can change your entire routine and all of your products. But wanting to save the environment doesn’t have to come at a cost to your skin! You can still minimize wrinkles, reduce the size of your pores, and rejuvenate your skin without feeling guilty.
