- Dermaenergy believes most of us aren’t cleaning our skin properly!
- Dermaenergy believes in a liquid exfoliant over a physical exfoliant!
- Dermaenergy believes our serums can be used too as eye creams!
If you’re feeling as if your skin needs a good scrub, it’s generally telling you that your skin has not been cleaned properly. You wouldn’t clean your teeth without a brush, so why clean your face with just your fingers? Dermaenergy has created a skin cleansing brush called Dermabrush which enables your deepest gentlest clean ever. The fine silicone rubber teeth of the DermaBrush create space between your cleanser and skin to help life and remove your oil for a superior clean. Once a month it is recommended to go and have your skin professionally exfoliated. Dermaenergy believes that diamond microdermabrasion is much gentler compared to crystal microdermabrasion. Crystal microdermabrasion is quick but very aggressive. Diamond microdermabrasion takes a little longer, but the treatment creates little to no trauma.
Secondly, scrubbing the skin is NOT a natural function of the skin. The skin naturally exfoliates itself, by movement (walking, talking, etc). The (intercellular) glue that holds the (dead) skin onto itself slowly dissolves towards the outer layers and eventually the dead skin will naturally fall away. Using a very rough, scratchy, scrub only hurts the skin, causing inflammation and damage. Inflamed skin is an ageing skin. We ask you to be kind to your skin. Use ingredients that helps dissolve the glue. Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids are specifically formulated to dissolve the glue. Shed the Dead is Dermaenergy’s leave-on, liquid exfoliant. It's essentially an at-home peel.
Eye creams aren't for everyone. For most of us, they a crock! If your active serums are water based then this means the serum can be applied onto the eye contour. Moisturisers can be applied around the eyes too. However rich, thick moisturisers suffocate the skin, impeding the natural function of the skin. A heavy moisturiser is essentially replacing the skin’s ability to hydrate itself. Dermaenergy serums are water-based and our moisturisers light, even Filthy Rich (our moisturiser prescribed for dry skin), is formulated in a light base and helps create a breathable film over the skin. Removing the need for it to be heavy in texture and meaning it is ideal for application to the eye area. Eye creams are usually prescribed for a much older skin. They usually contain a small % of Peptides and Retinol, weak enough to not irritate the eye, but too weak to do much to the surrounding skin.
