Whenever the cool weather season begins to descend upon us, I always make some major skincare changes. Much the same way I do in the Spring- I notice a big shift in the way my skin looks and wears makeup, and I am betting that you do too.?
Our skin cell turnover rapidly decreases in the cooler months, meaning our hair and nail growth slows, and the sloughing off of dead cells on our faces also comes to a near halt. The result is a duller complexion that is often plagued with more blackheads and larger looking pores. Ugh!
I am always on the hunt for new and innovative exfoliants that will help to minimize the appearance of large pores, as well as slough off dull skin to reveal fresh, toned skin that will wear makeup more evenly. Today I wanted to share with you this new favorite of mine that does just that; Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion.
This scrub is unique because it serves a dual purpose... it is both a chemical and a physical exfoliant. First you massage tiny micro-scrubbers into the skin that go to work removing buildup and dead skin cells. I love these type of exfoliators because they are tiny round particles that won't tear or aggravate the skin.
Next, the chemical ingredients in the scrub like fruit enzymes and salicylic acid go to work further breaking down the outer layers of skin that are dull and lackluster. You'll let the cream sit for 1-2 minutes while this step of the process happens, then simply rinse all of that gunk down the drain.
You are left with visibly smoother skin after the very first use, and after several weeks of use your face will have a new texture entirely! I absolutely love this scrub, and anyone who struggles with enlarged pores or dull skin will love it too.
