I hhave been having LED therapy on my face, neck and chest, inn conjunction with microdermabrasion and glycolic acid peels, for quite some time now. I stopped while I was pregnant with my last baby because I just didn't know if it would have any negative effects and couldn't find any research on that, specifically. Now my face is a hot mess. I also suspended my injectibles in favor of a toxin free pregnancy and breastfeeding experience, so when i look in the mirror it is like a stranger is looking back at me...
I have no time to run to the spa every week, so I decided to resume the most effective part of my spa regimen at home: LED THERAPY. Believe me when I say that I was confident going makeup-free as long as I was having these treatments. A little moisturizer, mascara and lipgloss was all I needed to feel "done up."
I purchased a Clear Rayz device from Baby Quasar because it has both red and blue LED lights, and a large face. I plan to use it while reading during baby's naptime. My device should arrive next week, and I am anxiously counting the days. There is nothing worse than breaking out, covering it with makeup, the makeup exacerbating the breakout, piling on more makeup, and feeling like the cycle never ends! Plus, my skin is too sensitive for any soap, zit cream, or treatment besides those I listed above. Even the clarisonic brush gave me a horrible rash all over my face.
Sorry for the scattered appr8ach and misspellings. Baby on lap napping, and typing on tablet.

I am going to spend 15 minutes in the steam room before doing my first LED treatment, to eliminate surface dirt and oil, as well as to unclog my pores. Then I am going to relax and watch a movie while i do my treatment. Will update with pics.
Two treatments later...

I spend 10 minutes in the steam room before each treatment. I use an atomizer to spray on a facial cleanser of my own creation while I am steaming. After I get a good sweat going i pour cold water over my face, then spray again. The cleanser consists of green tea, a few drops of organic lavender oil, and two pinches of sea salt. I do this because my skin is beyond sensitive and cannot tolerate any kind of rubbing or scrubbing. The steam opens the pores, sea salt draws out dirt and adds acidity fornheslthy balance, tea calms, tannins in the tea tone the skin and promote healing, and lavendar disinfects gently. I literally brew it up myself before each treatment... takes less than 5 mins, and the result is an all natural organic cleanser that cleans my skin and leaves it fresh with out stripping, drying or peeling. I figured I would include this info for those of you with ultra delicate skin, in case you are having trouble finding somehing that works.
I went with this product because of Baby Quasar's good reputation, because of tjis product's ease of use, and because of the significantly lower price.
