Keep your Skin Youthful with Microdermabrasion at Discount Prices | Daily Deals

Keep your Skin Youthful with Microdermabrasion at Discount Prices

As you get older your skin ages with you, there are mountains of skin remedies in the chemists but not all of them work. My skin is looking dull and lifeless; the sun dries it out though in the winter the cold dries it out so it needs constant attention, it can be expensive to keep up with the aging of my skin. Microdermabrasion is a gentle treatment that gives your skin a youthful and fresh looking feel. These are sometimes expensive treatments though I bought a treatment at a discount rate from a daily deals website. There are so many sites with the best daily deals Sydney has to offer and if you shop around and keep up to date with them you can get incredible discounts on a variety of health and beauty ranges.

Microdermabrasion is a treatment that removes the outer layer of skin with the help of aluminium oxide and bicarbonade crystals. It helps the renewal of skin surface cells while stimulating production of collagen and elastin within further layers of skin.  

The daily deals website that I purchased this deal from is one of the leading discount sites, after the treatment my skin was sparkling and all for only $39.
It was one of the best daily deals Sydney has to offer and with it I got a microdermabrasion treatment as well as two facials with three visits to get them in. The deal was worth $220 so I saved a huge 82%.

Daily deals websites are a new obsession of mine, there are discounts that are constantly being updated every day, and the microdermabrasion treatment was just one of the options that I could choose from. I bought a massage treatment at a huge discount for my Sister as a Christmas gift. The salon is one of the most popular in Sydney and I know that she is going to love the gift; I even bought one for myself so we could go together as a Christmas treat.

KettleBells | Have you tried 'The Ribbon'? | Kettlebell Training

I used to do kungfu – a lot – I mean I was well into kungfu and trained between 2-4 hrs a day since about 12 yrs old before I went to Uni…years after graduation and a few sprogs down the line…to tell you the truth – I don’t know what happened! I went back to try and stir a bit of passion into what I to love. The first session back – I thought I’d ease myself into it –

“Right, we’re going to continue doing our Kettlebell training today guys”. Kettle bells?’ I thought. (See the link for a description of what kettlebells actually are if you didn't already know!). "Kettlebells? Since when did we ever do them?" Isn’t that what girls do at those expensive Gyms? 
I figured we’d be doing some one finger press ups or something – so I went a picked up a 16 Ibs kettle bell weight – ha – easy I thought.
Suffice to say, 2 mins later after swimming out of a puddle of sweat, I had a dimming moment and secretly popped to the side to exchange for a rather hot pink girly 12 Ibs kettle bell…
Ok 12Ibl aint that much…is it? Maybe it was the exercises we were doing because by the end of it I had the rather wafer weighted version – the lightest one of the stack!

Don’t misjudge this form of training by any means people! It’s very intense and splits your core strength in two before chewing out every morcel of muscle that you previously thought wouldn’t split. I love this training! We did what was called ‘The Ribbon’ - an exercise whereby you stand with your feet shoulder width apart, your hands facing outwards clasping the kettlebell pointing diagonally down inline with your leg. This was the starting position. The idea was to swing from the face down starting position (let’s say the left leg) diagonally up and right over the right shoulder…loop round over the head and back down diagonally to the right leg – then change…and got the other way – create a fluent motion of a rhythm.
I ached for 3 days afterwards – but now I want some for home!
