The change of seasons means confused skin that makes too much oil and gets congested from a build up of dead skin. Keeping clear, glowing skin requires preventative measures, and we have an awesome giveaway for exactly what you need to stay on top of skin care woes. Prevent those disasters with Purifying products from derma*e®, a fabulous eco-ethical company that is completely committed to your health, well-being, and the environment. samples
We have five of our favorite derma*e® products in this giveaway:
- Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50)
- Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($15.50)
- Purifying Gel Cleanser ($15.50)
- Purifying Toner Mist ($15.50)
- Purifying Youth Serum ($29.50)
The key to creating skin that gets the most from skin care products is exfoliation. derma*e® has some of the best exfoliating products out there.
As a deep clean once a week, the Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask ($19.50) detoxes skin in two ways:
(1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries
(2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion.
Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin, concentrating on areas that have a tendency to be problematic. For me, that means nose and chin. It only takes about five minutes for it to dry, then using wet fingertips massage the mask in small circles. This ‘supersizes’ the exfoliation and really cleans out those pores. Rinse off with warm water or a damp washcloth. This treatment mask has many of the same powerful ingredients as the Purifying Gel Cleanser, so it’s the perfect complimentary deep clean.
The Purifying Daily Detox Scrub ($15.50) is a facial exfoliant paste that is gentle but very effective. It has a great ingredient list, starting with the charcoal that absorbs impurities so they can be washed away. The scrubbing power comes from Apricot Seed Powder that sloughs off any dead cells, dirt, and oil. The aloe keeps skin super soft and moist. Like all the Purifying products, it also has the Kimarine® and bladderwrack mentioned earlier. Because the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub doesn’t have a whole slew of complicated ingredients, this gentle scrub is safe for even very sensitive skin. I think it’s a fantastic way to keep skin glowing and ready for serum and moisturizer.
I am a huge fan of derma*e’s® Purifying Gel Cleanser ($15.50) because it exfoliates so gently. Even though it’s an exfoliating cleanser, I can use my Luna cleansing brush without fear of being too rough on my skin and I think it would be perfect to use with a Clarisonic. I have been working out like crazy for the last six months and this is my favorite choice for washing my face when I get home because it is perfect for removing sweat, toxins, and bacteria.
This cleanser is pH balanced and has no fragrance or sulfates. Ingredients include these minerals and natural toxin fighters:
Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals).
Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment.
Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, helps thoroughly remove toxins from the skin’s surface.
Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense, and a base of Aloe Leaf Juice revives skin with fresh, healthy hydration.
Once you have exfoliated and cleansed your skin, the next best step is to hydrate and treat with antioxidants using a great toner. The derma*e® Purifying Toner Mist ($15.50) is the toner for the job since it has Marine Algae and Green Tea to refresh and fortify your skin against the environment. It’s also pH balanced with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack, Green Tea antioxidants, and Aloe Leaf Juice. I use this after exfoliating and cleansing at night, as well as in the morning before treatment and moisturizer. While it’s a spray, I don’t recommend spraying it directly on your face since it comes out a little heavy and uneven. It’s better sprayed onto a cotton pad then wiped on. An added bonus – if you happened to miss any makeup or dirt while cleansing, this lifts away anything that might cause clogged pores.
With skin clean and ready to make the most of any treatment, an excellent treatment serum is the Purifying Youth Serum ($29.50). Holy smokes is this good stuff! Awesome ingredients like Kimarine® Wakame, Bladderwrack, and Green Tea together in an Aloe Leaf Juice Base makes for super healthy, glowy skin. This is a great primer for foundation, too. And like all derma*e® products, it’s 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten-free, and GMO-free.
