Let’s talk skin! Like many pet parents I spend lots of time outdoors and often spend more time and money caring for Daisy’s grooming needs than I do my own. The lack of attention I’ve been paying to my skin is starting to really show!
We live where it’s warm and sunny all year and though I’ve tried to be good about the sunscreen, my skin is showing definite signs of sun damage and dark spots. I’ve always struggled with enlarged pores and now that I’m getting older, I’m also seeing lots of fine lines and random rough patches popping up. I’ve got a few old acne scars I’d like to get rid of, too.
Most of you know me well enough by now, to know that I’m always on the hunt for effective, affordable solutions for both pets AND their people. I’ve been testing out the PMD, Personal Microderm Device, for about 3 weeks now and am super excited to let you in on the secret. For about the price of one spa facial or visit to a cosmetic dermatologist, you can give yourself weekly skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments at home!
What is PMD?
PMD is an at-home microdermal exfoliation system that uses the same aluminum oxide crystals found in the equipment at your doctor’s office, salons and fancy spas. It’s designed to help improve your skin texture and appearance in two ways: The aluminum oxide crystals embedded into the exfoliating discs work to resurface the stratum corneum skin layer (that’s the one that can make skin look dull and old), plus the PMD uses vacuum suction to stimulate blood flow and bring collagen to the surface. Both of these actions help your skin care products to penetrate deeper into the skin so you use less and they are more effective, too!
Why I Like It:
Most of us don’t have time and money to make frequent visits to the spa or cosmetic dermatologist. Even if you have health insurance, anti-aging and microderm treatments aren’t covered and can be expensive since you usually need repeated visits to see results. With the PMD, you buy it once, own it for life and use it every 6-7 days on your own schedule. I’ve only been using it for 3 weeks but I am already seeing and feeling smoother skin, and am starting to see a brighter, more even skin tone too. Here’s more reasons I’m a fan of this beauty tool:
