Nothing gets my pulse racing like money-saving, DIY beauty products. And while I love getting a heavy-duty professional microdermabrasion treatment a couple times a year, I’m always on the lookout for a great at-home version I can use on a weekly basis.
Question: what’s not to love about a microderm treatment? Answer: Nothing! This effective exfoliating remedy helps slough off dead skin, promotes cell turnover, and smoothes out fine lines -- leaving skin fresh, baby-soft and radiant. However, the professional version can be pretty expensive.
The good news? You can get those same "in office" benefits with an "at home" treatment -- and for a fraction of the cost (insert clapping and cheering here)! One effective product that's landed on my “beauty radar” is Derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub. Here’s the scrub-a-licious skinny:
Product 411: This polishing scrub contains a fine crystal blend that promises to send fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars packin’, leaving your skin retexturized and refreshed. The secret to this salon skin treatment alternative is Aluminum Oxide (part of the unique crystal blend), which helps to safely and effectively remove dead skin cells. The end result? A smooth, photoshop-esque complexion!
Why you’ll love it: This scrub naturally improves skin tone and texture by encouraging regeneration. In addition to the exfoliating crystals, it contains a blend of oils to nourish the skin and leave it looking radiant. And if radiant skin isn’t enough, this power scrub also diminishes the appearance of fine lines. I saw the results with my own eyes! And at $28.50, it's a fraction of the cost of a true microderm treatment. Wondering what to do with money you've saved? Start a makeup slush fund!
You can find Derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub ($28.50) and other Derma e products at Ulta, Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods, Bloom or via a number of online retailers such as Drugstore.com.
