My mother always says "You're only as old as you feel." I don't mean to dampen anyone's spirits but wouldn't it be a lot easier to believe in that if you didn't discover a new wrinkle or fine line every time you looked into the mirror? Can fifty really be the new thirty? As usual, my inner nerd needed to find an answer and my search led me to the Nu Skin Galvanic Spa. Could this be it? Mankind's leap forward to take aging one step backward? Read on to find out...
First things first, I had to figure out how safe (or not!) the usage of electric current on the delicate surface of facial skin is. Turns out, galvanic current has been used in spas worldwide for over 50 years. And just in case you were wondering, it is pain-free. Phew!
Also at first glance, the Nu Skin Galvanic Spa seemed a little too complex for me. What were those attachments? Those gels? Positive and negative polarities? It sort of reminded me of my horror school days. Let me reassure you though, it's not as complicated as you think it is.
What it contains:
The Nu Skin Galvanic Spa consits of a device with four interchangeable conductors: the ageLOC face conductor, Spot treatment conductor for concentrated treatment to specific areas, a scalp conductor and a body conductor. Also included are two specially formulated gels with ageLOC. What exactly is ageLOc? Let's just call it a revolutionary blend of ingredients that target the source of aging in skin and stop it, a little bit like a super-hero don't you think? :D While the current stimulates cell rejuvenation in your face, body and scalp,the gels help eliminate toxins and impurities from your skin and minimize your pores and allow them to breathe.
Before the actual process, remember to wash your face and dry it. Also, let your hands be moist. Next comes the Pre-treatment step. Apply the gel and use your face conductor on it. During this step, the spa instrument and the the pre-treatment gel are negatively charged.The negative charges repel each other and drive the pre-treatment gel into the skin.
Next comes the treatment step. Apply the treatment gel and follow the same process. This time, the galvanic spa instrument and the treatment gel are positively charged. Again, they repel each other and drive the gel into the skin.
Wash your face when the gel dries, and look into the mirror...instant younger, healthy looking skin!
