I get asked often about how I keep my skin looking clear, glowing, and youthful. I am definitely not one of those people who can sit back and let my skin do this by itself. I drink plenty of water, eat healthy, and exercise, which helps, but I definitely need some assistance from stellar skincare products that I love. My favorite, and definitely the most life-changing, is the Michael Todd Beauty Total Refresher 3-in-1 Rejuvenation System. With this system, you “smooth, remove, and soothe” your way through an at-home facial that rivals a spa treatment. My skin has changed dramatically from this device, even after the very first use. I now consider it a must-have item in my beauty arsenal and I want to gift everyone I love with one!
What is it? It’s a sonic device that you can recharge via a USB charging cord. It comes with 3 treatment heads that parallel the “smooth, remove, and soothe” steps.
The 3 treatment heads are designed to give your skin a full treatment like a spa facial would. Here is how I use mine:
- Smooth. I use the Diamond Exfoliator Head (shown in the middle) on my skin first. I like to use it while I am in the shower or the bath so that some steam has allowed my pores to open up first. With your skin dry, you allow the light suction of the product (there are 3 speeds available) to glide over your skin while holding your skin taut between your thumb and pointer finger. I use long, upward motions and complete my face in small sections, such as left cheek, right cheek, forehead, nose, chin, and then neck. Your skin may turn a bit red during this step, which is completely normal. You are exfoliating all the dead skin cells off your face and making way for new, smooth skin. Your skin will feel the smoothest it has ever felt after this step. I do this twice per week for 5 minutes at a time.
- Remove. This part can be a bit gross but it is 100% necessary for clear skin. Using the Round Extraction Head you see (shown on the right), you allow the suction to remove blackheads and milia that may be congesting your pores. Whenever I use this on my nose, I always see instant results. You can choose 3 speeds of suction, so you tailor it to your own skin needs. The best part is the device system comes with filters that you replace each use, so there’s no cross-contamination between uses.
- Soothe. The last step is optional, although I find it to be super relaxing. Using the Oval Head, you can run it along your fine lines and wrinkles in an upward motion to help tighten and define your skin. I particularly love it for around my mouth where I tend to notice fine lines. The top metallic silver button is for your favorite toner. The back of the device has a reservoir where you can add your favorite toner. By using this function, the cool spray helps to calm the skin and finish off the at-home facial. High-frequency technology turns the water molecules to nanometer water mist enabling easier absorption into the deeper layers of the skin!
Having oily-combination skin, I do get occasional breakouts. This device has helped not only curb those, but get rid of all evidence that they ever happened! I use the microdermabrasion diamond head twice per week and usually within 2 uses, any old acne scarring or hyper-pigmentation is faded and gone.
I love to use my favorite masks and moisturizers after using the device. My skin feels cleaner, clearer, and fresher, so I feel like my products absorb into my skin better and I see better results.
Though I noticed results after just one use, I’ve noticed dramatic results after using it for 4 weeks now. My skin texture has never been smoother, my fine lines have diminished, and my skin glows like crazy. I feel so much more confident not wearing any makeup when I’m out and about!
I get asked almost daily what kind of skincare I use and I point people to this device because I now consider it not only a must-have, but the foundation of my skincare routine.
