If you don’t know what Dermaplaning is… it’s a term used to basically describe a type of face/neck/chest exfoliation. I am fully admitting that I am low-key obsessed. It’s super awesome. I tried it once and fell in love. Not only does my skin look better, it glows, my makeup goes on more effectively & efficiently, I feel like my skincare products even go deeper. I still go and get my monthly Dermaplaning by my fab esthetician( if you are in need and are in the same area email me!) but inbetween appointments I came across this little but powerful device! It’s called Dermaflash you may have seen it in Vogue, InStyle, The Doctors, Wendy Williams (yaaas I am a fan, how you doin’) and many more. Well the dermaflash has been a godsend. I no longer have to worry if I cannot get in to see my esthetician, I have the easiest and best solution.
To prepare the facial skin for DERMAFLASH, first cleanse the surface of your skin with Prep facial cleanser. Wipe clean and gently pat dry. This will ensure a clean, dry surface for optimal results.
Insert a new Edge into your DERMAFLASH. Start the DERMAFLASH in front of your ear at the top of the cheekbone. With your free hand, hold your facial skin taught and using short, feathery strokes glide the DERMAFLASH Edge inward towards nose over the contours of your cheek and entire side of your face. Continue with the same light feathery strokes on the chin, below and above the lip and finish with the forehead. Avoid the eyelid, eyebrows, hairline, sides of the nose and lips. The blue silicone pad on the side is intended to stay in contact with your skin throughout the treatment to maintain the correct angle. This exfoliating skin treatment takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
To care for your skin after treatment, apply a thin layer of Soothe hydrator all over your entire face. Soothe hydrating lotion was specially formulated to help rid you of dull skin and keep your skin soft and smooth.
For optimum skin refining, use DERMAFLASH once per week as part of your nighttime routine.
