If you haven’t heard of microdermabrasion, prepare to have your skincare routine transformed.

We all know how important it is to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, but most of our scrubs and washes don’t even begin to scratch the surface (literally) of our skin’s dirt build-up. 

Our pores can get clogged deeper than the eyes can see, and often our dead skin cells trap this dirt even further. This can cause acne and blemishes.

For those with dry skin, this same dead cell build-up can stop our skin from getting much need moisture. That’s why microdermabrasion is necessary to take away this outer layer of dead skin and reveal a rejuvenated, glowy complexion.

If you have wrinkles, fine lines, or sunspots, microdermabrasion is amazing for smoothing and brightening lackluster skin.  

Aestheticians and skincare experts have made empires out of microdermabrasion with fancy clinics and expensive treatments, but you don’t need to go to an office just to have youthful-looking skin.

Microdermabrasion devices, masks, and creams can be bought online and used at home to clean, scrub, and tighten your skin. Almost all skin types can use microdermabrasion products, but proceed with caution if you have active acne, eczema, rosacea or extremely sensitive skin. 

Here are the best at home microdermabrasion products for a salon standard glow.
