As much as I hate to admit it, I have reached the midpoint. The midpoint is what I call that time in your life when you fully realize no cream nor lotion will replace or outperform injections or surgery. However, I remain hopeful that there are alternatives to help retain a young and fresh looking face before taking the plunge.
One device that keeps me hopeful is the NuFace facial stimulator and toner. NuFace is the first and only FDA approved for home use hand held microcurrent device. Microcurrent facial toning machines work by sending safe, painless impulses to the muscles in your face to assist overly tightened muscles to relax, and by helping under worked muscles to regain strength. Microcurrents also improve circulation in the face which stimulates production of collegen, improves texture and tone, and helps to eliminate fine lines. The NuFace system is easy to use and adds very little time (5 min max) to your beauty regime. The device comes with step by step written instructions as well as a dvd. This petite, easy to use, non-invasive device leaves my skin looking tighter and more toned, gives me a healthy glow, and an obvious reduction in fine lines. The instructions recommend using the device at least 5 times a week during the first couple of months of . If you’ve got an extra 5 minutes, this device is well worth your time and money. Available at www.nuface.com for $325.
FINAL VERDICT: GGI (Gotta Get It) – Yes, it’s pricey, but stick with it for best results. If you order direct through NuFace, you can get the device in limited edition pink which supports the fight against breast cancer. Carol Cole, founder and creator of the NuFace is a 10 year breast cancer survivor and donates a portion of the proceeds from the pink sales to breast cancer research.
