When I look at old photos of myself I am almost always struck by how different I appear, despite how little my face has really changed thus far. I don’t have much in the way of wrinkles or sagging going on at this point in time, but there is still something that has gone astray. I have come to realize that what I am missing is the bright, healthy glow of youth. How do you get that back though?
I have tried all of the facial scrubs I can get my hands on. I have also given a handful of at-home peels a try. Some have given decent results, but nothing has really done a fantastic job of clearing off the entire dull top layer of dead skin. In fact, some disturb it just enough that it actually looks rougher afterward, with patches of flakiness here and there.
Le Edge is a new exfoliation method. Unlike most other home exfoliation methods, Le Edge does not require that you apply any product. It looks like a type of razor and is used in much the same way. You run the device over the surface of your moistened skin at a 45 degree angle and the surgical grade, stainless steel surface strips off the top layer of dead skin cells, products, oil and dirt.
It is not a blade and the makers state that it will not cut the skin. It can be used pretty much anywhere on the body that you would regularly exfoliate. They say that it is particularly handy for prepping skin before applying self tanning products. It is also said to be good for guys to use before shaving to prevent ingrown hairs.
It looks like an interesting beauty tool and one that I definitely wouldn’t mind trying. You can find Le Edge here.
Update: I was so interested in trying this product that I got a hold of one and have been using it for about a month. Le Edge was an intriguing product to me because I have been experimenting with different exfoliators for several years now in an attempt to keep my skin looking young and fresh. One of the things that I find most annoying about cream type exfoliators is that the cream part of the product sometimes causes my oily skin to break out. Also, as I mentioned above, I have never found a product that really cleared away all of the dull skin. I was very excited to try Le Edge.
Anyways, I am really happy that I tried this exfoliator and my husband loves it even more than I do! It has done a great job of taking off the dull skin on my face and legs and the very dry skin on my heels. My husband decided to try a Le Edge as he gets very flaky dry patches on his face in the winter time. In the past when he has tried my exfoliators he found that they did not do a very good job of scrubbing through his facial stubble (he also got the occasional breakout from various products). Le Edge has now become part of his daily routine. His skin is looking really smooth and clean. He is thrilled to have something that works, is easy to use and doesn’t leave anything around to clog up his skin.
Even better, the bathroom cabinet will be less cluttered as I can now toss all of the other exfoliator tubes and jars. Thanks Le Edge for de-clogging my skin and part of my home!
