[quote=Leza1121;765433]Hi all,

Check out page 34 in Allure Magazine's January 2007 issue. I found the following bit piece by Meirav Devash

WORD OF MOUTH
----------------------------------------------
AGAINST THE GRAIN

Do-it-yourselfers love hardware stores for their
drywall accessories and caulk guns. Now some
women are snapping up sandpaper for their own
version of dermabrasion--and boasting about it on
Internet bulletin boards.
Like traditional dermabrasion with a high-speed
rotary wheel or brush, sandpaper removes the
surface layer of the skin, explains New York
City dermatologist Doris J. Day. "The problem is
that it's simply not safe," she says. "The sandpaper
could be teeming with bacteria."
Agressive scraping and tiny nicks to the skin
could lead to infection and scarring. Whether for
home or personal renovation, some tasks are best
left to the professionals. --Meirav Devash

Now I can understand that desparate times calls for desparate measures, but this is just going too far.

Have any of you heard about this or know anyone who does this so-called "dermabrasion" method at home? What are your thoughts?


Cool I"m gonna try this!!! :add_wegbrech:

Re: This Is Unbelievable!

i know there is sandpaper thats almost as smooth as regular paper..but i still won't use it on my face. It wasnt meant to be used on your face.........it was meant for wood. I don't know for those ppl who use it....i may not have perfect skin but it sure aint wood!

Re: This Is Unbelievable!

Ugh! Years ago (in my much younger days) I worked in a hardware store. Have you seen the icky stuff that floats around EVERYWHERE and settles on the products in a hardware store?

Even if the sandpaper was of the finest grade and wasn't so rough to use on my skin I wouldn't consider using it knowing what's in those stores and what was possibly on the hands of all the people that have handled the sandpaper.

What a gross thought. ugh

ouch...that sounds like that would hurt.

Re: This Is Unbelievable!

Major scarring for life!! Once you scrape your skin with sandpaper, it will bleed and leave dark spots on your face. I would never try it. I think that it would not go away.

Re: This Is Unbelievable!

EWWWW...that IS CRAZY, I'd be so afraid, I'd sand down to far and really hurt myself.

Re: This Is Unbelievable!

Omg a belt sander! WTF?! OMG! That's ridiculous! I can't even fathom that. . . That would be HORRIBLE for your face. You can't control how fast they're spinning and I can't imagine that it's good for you.

You could be seriously injured! I've used one before! (not on my face obviously) but still! OMG! O_O

Re: This Is Unbelievable!

I can't even use grainy exfoliants! There is no way in hell that I'd allow sandpaper anywhere NEAR my skin!
