The non-invasive skincare procedure has becoming increasingly popular on Treatwell in the last year or so. Microdermabrasion works by exfoliating the surface of the skin with a stream of tiny crystals to lift dead skin cells. Some salons might use a vacuum to suck up these cells (satisfying).

How to get skin that glows like *that* Instagram filter
For me, dewy skin is always on the agenda. So, when images of high-gloss skin started circulating my Instagram feed, I had to find the source. Was it a vinyl facemask? A juicy skin serum?
