Philips ReAura: Quick Update

If you managed to catch my most recent log (if not, it can be found here) then you’ll know that I’d become incredibly casual about my skincare, and as a consequence, I wasn’t regularly ReAuraing like I should’ve been.

My skin was doing everything I wanted it to do; it wasn’t breaking out, it was looking smooth and it required very little make-up. All I was doing was a quick cleanse, tone and moisturise (if that, if I’m honest) and taking it for granted that my skin was settled and happy.
Unfortunately, it’s now played up and I have five spots. What’s quite funny is that the skin I used to have wouldn’t have shown up the spots as they would’ve blended into the pigmentation (you seriously couldn’t tell the difference between spots and post-acne marks on my face, so even when I was having a ‘good day’ I’d still look very spotty) however, now the pigmentation has faded so much since I started using the ReAura, they’re really rather obvious! They’re nothing terrible and I’ve managed to reduce them to almost nothing now, but what it does mean is that I can’t ReAura until they’ve gone as you’re not supposed to use the ReAura directly on spots. So it’ll be a couple of days before my next treatment, but once that’s done I’ll resume my updates.

The ReAura isn’t intended to treat spots, but going on the fact that I had virtually none right up until I stopped treating with the device, I’m going to believe that, for whatever reason, it’s doing something to keep the spots at bay. If this means that for the rest of my life I need to keep up regular ReAura treatments then that’s definitely something I’m happy to commit to. Anyone who’s ever battled with constant spots will know what I mean!
In the meantime, I’ve been receiving lots of messages and comments on here from other ReAura users who are all getting on well with it, which is so fantastic to hear. I really do love hearing from other people – especially as the ReAura is so new so there’s not a lot of us about yet – so if you are a ReAura user, please let me know how you’re getting on by either mailing me or commenting here. FAQ post will be coming soon and hopefully the next treatment log will be up by the weekend.

    hi, I have also had acne and found to start with that the reaura helped keep them at bay BUT 9 weeks in, my spots have started to go nuts. I think that the reaura is actually over stimulating my skin and may be causing more spots. How’s your skin doing with reaura by now and how far along are you..

    @Anon that’s really interesting! The thing is, the ReAura is a treatment that’s speeding up the regeneration process, so what you’re experiencing could be purging, although of course it could be various other things. Where I went wrong is by stopping treatment completely (I got lazy as my skin was close to perfect) as before that point my skin hadn’t been breaking out at all during the treatment. Saying that though, I wasn’t that far into the treatment. I’ll definitely be starting treatment again this week; I’m just going to go around the spots 🙂 thanks for your comment xx
