Supplements: Microdermabrasion and Replenishing Serum +C

Okay, so we've covered the basics and the very basics. Now we are moving into supplements. Some of these are still strongly recommended for all skin types and all skin care regiments. But, you can pick and choose from these items as you need them. Or use them for a bit of needed pampering.

Timewise Microdermabrasion ($55, plus tax as a set). Mary Kay's Microdermabrasion has two steps to it. Step 1 is Refine ($30, plus tax). This step is after your cleanser and before any Day or Night treatments. You need a very little amount of this product. A little goes a long way.

Did you know that dead skin cells around the pores make the pores look bigger? The Refine step buffs away these dead skin cells almost instantly making the pores appear smaller. The "buffer" beads are all the same size and none are jagged. So this doesn't hurt or irriate the skin.

The Refine step is recommended once or twice per week. You won't need it more often than that. Mary Kay also recommends not using any masks on the same day as the Microdermabrasion.

Step 2 is Replenish($25, plus tax). Replenish is required after Refine. Refine has the antioxidants and botanicals which replenish the skin with vital ingredients after the skin is buffed clean.

Both of these steps are Timewise--so they are anti-age and anti-wrinkle.

Another great Mary Kay product is the Timewise Replenishing Serum +C ($55 plus tax). This is a lightweight serum packed with antioxidants and vitamin C.  Replenishing Serum +C is meant to eliminate free radicals which cause premature signs of aging.

This product is used twice per day, with just three pumps each. It is also meant to go on after your Day and Night products, but before your moisturizer. If you are using the Microdermabrasion Set, those two products are first. Again, this is another anti-age and anti-wrinkle product.


My wife loves the Microdermabrasion. It is her favorite product from Mary Kay. She did have one professional facial. The salon worker asked her if she uses a microdermabrasion product of any kind. At the time, my wife said no, but her husband recommended one. The salon worker told her she had a smart husband. True story!

I am a big fan of the Microdermabrasion Set as well, but I do love the Replenishing Serum +C. While attending Seminar for Mary Kay, they gave us a three day sample of the Replenishing Serum +C so we could try it before the product launched. This is the FIRST product I fell in love with on the very first use. My skin feels amazing using it.

As always, feel free to ask me any questions. I love to answer and help. You can contact me here or through my website. www.marykay.com/dmanor
