3 Steps To A More Radiant Complexion With Microabrasion

The key to healthy, beautiful skin lies within exfoliation. It is vital to strip the skin of dead cells in order to reveal a more youthful complexion. In order to help clarify the way to go about beautifying the skin, Lilia Tourmaine, the in-house aesthetician at Phyto Universe, has offered up a 3-step treatment plan. She recommends following these steps twice a week to help rejuvenate the skin.


After wetting the face and neck with water, use circular movements to apply LIERAC Paris Microabrasion to the area. This helps to remove dead skin cells and improve the skin's texture and radiance. It also sets the skin up to better absorb further product.


Rinse the skin completely and pat dry. Follow with LIERAC Paris Concentré Mésolift Radiance Serum which adds essential vitamins and minerals to rejuvinate dull or tired complexions.


According to the particular skin conern, apply a moisturizer to the exfoliated areas. This serves to hydrate and reintroduce important nutrients.

It's sometimes easy to forget about our skin's need for exfoliation, but hopefully these steps were a bit helpful. How often do you generally exfoliate?

LIERAC Paris: A Leader In Anti-Cellulite Research

Cellulite isn't the most glamorous issue to deal with, but fortunately no one has to suffer alone. A gender-specific condition affecting 90% of women, cellulite results from fat storage occuring in the hypodermis (the deepest skin layer), along with water retention and aging of the connective tissue. When there is an imbalance between the processes of fat storage and release, and fat cells increase in volume. As a result, collagen fibers form rigid capsules over the fat cells, causing skin to adopt the characteristic dimpled look - not so pretty!

Lucky for us girls, LIERAC has long studied how cellulite comes to be, as well as how to treat the condition. In 2004, the brand released Ultra-Body Lift 10, a concentrate that directly targets cellulite and water retention. LIERAC introduced Active Caffeine (a 10% concentration) into the product's formula. The caffeine works along with phospholipids to reduce the accumulation of fat. In addition, Ultra-Body Lift 10 contains licorice, an ingredient rich in flavonoids that has anti-water retention and anti-toxin properties. Together these ingredients magically work to recontour the appearance of the skin, reducing unsighlty dimples and aiding drainage for a more comfortable feel.
