Whether you are attending a wedding, a member of the bridal party, or you are the bride herself, making sure your skin is glowing and picture perfect for the wedding day is important. This is why you are going to want to lock down a skin care routine using products that are natural and work well at ensuring you have glowing, wedding ready skin for the big day. That is where derma e comes in. Whether you have oily, hyperpigmentation, or dehydrated skin, derma e® will target your most significant skin concerns.
You always want to start off with a good cleanser. As an oily girl, who lives in New York City, I need a cleanser that will get rid of the sweat, oil and grime from the day, but without being too harsh on the skin. The derma e Purifying Gel Cleanser is perfect for that. This fragrance-free and sulfate-free cleanser uses activated charcoal to remove impurities from the skin. It also contains a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed – Kimarine® Wakame – that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants that city dwellers like myself usually encounter, such as exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, and heavy metals.
Between two to three times per week, I like to give my skin a good scrub. Sloughing off the dead skin cells that can make my skin look dull. The derma e Microdermabrasion Scrub is perfect for that. What I do is mix it with a little of the Purifying Gel Cleanser, and then get my scrub on. My skin is left completely smooth, clean and glowing. The great thing about this microdermabrasion scrub is that it can be used anywhere on the body where you would like softer skin, which for me are my elbows.
At this point we have smooth, and clean skin covered, right? Now, we can move on over to getting our skin brighter. I know you want that glow. And this is where the derma e Overnight Peel with alpha hydroxy acids come into play.
I’ve used my fair share of overnight peels, and this one is amazing. This overnight peel has a blend of glycolic sugar cane and fruit acids, along with 5% Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) for safe, and effective removal of dead surface skin cells to reveal brighter skin the following morning. At night after cleansing and toning, I apply the overnight peel in place of my moisturizer after applying the Purifying Youth Serum, and then wake up to beautiful glowing skin.
The next day, my skin is ready for me to apply my makeup, for the wedding day. Since my skin is already in top shape, thanks to these derma e products, I don’t need to get all heavy-handed with the foundation and concealer. Just check out this pic from a July wedding I attended.
After the wedding, and the fun is over, it is time to remove the makeup. I use the fragrance-free, oil-free derma e Makeup Remover to do the job. It not only does a good job at removing makeup, it contains ingredients like Chamomile and Cucumber extracts to help soothe, tighten and refresh the skin, along with eyebright extract, which shields skin from irritation. And then there is Bilberry extract that promotes healthy looking skin. Another great thing about this product is that it is ideal for contact lens wearers like me.
Lastly, remember to always keep hydrated. Drink half of your body weight of water in ounces, and if you like coconut water, try that too. It tastes good, is hydrating, full of electrolytes and potassium.
The next time you are searching for ways to achieve glowing, wedding ready skin, just check out derma e products. I’m sure you will find something that suits your skincare needs. Plus, derma e products are free of the following:
- Mineral Oil and Lanolin
Note: When introducing new products into your skincare routine, always test it on a small part of your body first to ensure you will not suffer a reaction. Trust me, you do not want to try a product a few days or even a day before the wedding to only have a bad reaction.
