Trauma doesn’t heal your skin. You can’t hurt it to help it. That’s not how skin works. 
Any skincare tool, device, product, or procedure that crosses the line and causes a trauma response of anxiety and inflammation — essentially too much increased blood flow — is not beneficial for skin health. This includes lasers, peels, microdermabrasion, and the most common types of skin products. 
Real healing and preservation happens in the sweet spot of increased blood flow. Not too much. Not too little. 
Want to know how to find that sweet spot? These are the most effective holistic skin care tools that stimulate positive blood flow needed for healing.  
Lancet: This remarkable but controversial tool is consistently omitted from skin health awareness. It is a tiny, sharp-tipped instrument that can be used to effectively remove blackheads and milia, which happen to be the biggest issues that cause skin texture irregularities (aka weird bumps and even lumps under our skin). Ideally, you want to track down a master extractor in your town that knows how to wield one. 

Otherwise, you can self-extract with this tool (albeit with less effectiveness) if you know the guidelines (contact me for how). Something is better than nothing in this case, but it’s important you don’t do more harm than good. So educate yourself.

The tremendous amount of instant removal and relief of congestion is well worth the few moments of pain. No laser, scrub, skin product, peel, microneedling, microdermabrasion, injection, or even a facelift could ever remove impacted blackheads or milia.

Keep learning about what the new paradigm shift means for your skin…practically.
Harm to heal is OUT and Nourish to Heal is IN.
Real healing is a beautiful process.
