Review: DERMA E Microdermabrasion Scrub
2 oz./56g $26.00
I have always posted that exfoliation is very important and one of the key elements to good skincare. And microdermabrasion is one of the best ways to get results. It's a salon or medispa treatment which uses various types of crystals that are smoothed along the skin to exfoliate it and remove the upper layers of the epidermis. Proven to be quite effective, but quite costly, some scrubs that are used at home can mimic some of the results that microdermabrasion provides. Today I will be discussing a scrub which helps to rid the skin of dead skin cells in a natural way and that helps skin to regenerate itself without irritation, while leaving your skin glowing.
DERMA E Microdermabrasion Scrub is an excellent choice if you choose to use a scrub for exfoliation in your skincare routine. This wonderful smelling scrub (it smells like lemon, lime and orange), is a great way to get a salon treatment at home. Microdermabrasion is usually reserved for salons, medispas and dermatologists' offices, however this scrub gives you similar results with continued use. It helps to clear up clogged hair follicles (pores), which in turn prevents acne lesions, buffs aways dullness, removes fine lines and wrinkles, and helps to lighten the look of acne scars. Skin looks and feels smoother, and more radiant.
It contains a mixture of Dead Sea Salt and crystals (such as pumice and alumina) that combine to form a paste, which smoothes the skin without being overzealous. I would recommend this product for skins that are dry, normal, combination and oily but not acneic in nature. If you have a acneic skin and want to use this, make sure you do not have active breakouts on your face. This is something that would help to get rid of blackheads but it is not meant skin that has lesions already on it. Also, I would definitely not recommend it for really sensitive skin or skin that has been using chemical exfoliants on it (AHAs, Retin-A, etc.) under any circumstance. That type of skin is already thin enough and could become thinner with use of this product. Too much exfoliation erodes the natural moisture barrier and causes damage to the skin. Then the natural ceramides are damaged and need to be replaced. It becomes a vicious cycle. If your skin is mildly sensitive then if might work for you, but I would be cautious.
To use: apply to clean, wet skin and gently scrub desired areas in a circular motion, for up to 1 minute. Less pressure is recommended for more sensitive areas. Rinse well with lukewarm water and pat dry. Skin will likely be pink or red from use and is perfectly normal. Use twice a week.
The ingredients in this product are what really sell it. Dead Sea Salt helps to detoxify the skin and buff away dead skin cells (along with the pumice and alumina crystals) to reveal smoother, softer skin that looks and feels younger with each use. Citrus oils such as lemon, orange, and lime peel oils helps to energize and refresh the complexion so that it radiates with a beautiful glow. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and moisturizer that helps the skin look plump and dewy. Grape Seed Oil is abundant is vitamins and nourishes the skin. Kaolin clay helps to absorb excess oil and prevent further breakouts. Jojoba Seed Oil is an oil that helps to intensely nourish and moisturize the skin. Finally, Sweet Almond Oil intensely moisturizes and nourishes the skin, making is feel petal soft. When combined all together these ingredients make a killer scrub that leaves the skin feeling beautiful, soft and glowing.
