Hello! Hope you are all having a great week so far. I have been slightly sick, but then again it feels like it’s something that is going around. With this crazy weather we have been having, one day is cold and rainy, the next is 88 degrees. Anyways we all know how it feels to be sick. You feel nonexistent lol… Well, that’s a little drastic, but you get the point. As crappy as I have been feeling the last few days, I am super good at hiding it. I am all about spreading positivity even when I don’t feel my best. I’ll let you in on the secret of great skin even when you’re sick.
My secret consists of a great skincare routine, water, and vitamins. I have three great tools that I received at the end of March courtesy of Primp Network and PMD Beauty. I am not getting paid for writing this post, but I did get the products in kind for reviewing purposes. All thoughts and opinions are my own as always. If you have been following along, you already know that my skin is far from perfect. So yes, I am always trying new things to see what works for me. I have found some holy grail products, but that’s a whole new post lol… for another time. Sometimes when you are sick people can actually tell by the look of your skin. Dark circles, due to lack of sleep give it away 99% of the time. So I always take care of my skin no matter how I’m feeling.
PMD Clean device
One of the products I received was the PMD Clean device. I had been using the Sephora Precision Pore Cleansing Pad for years. It was about $6 and it did a pretty decent job. I was actually on the hunt for something better though. So the PMD Clean device came at a great time and I fell in love with it. About the PMD Clean “Is a smart facial cleansing device. With over 7,000 vibrations per minute, our SonicGlow™ technology not only ensures a deep cleanse, but provides a way to lift, firm, and tone problem areas for a more youthful appearance”. “PMD Clean removes the skin’s impurities by breaking down dirt and oil from within the pores.”
I love the fact that its made of ultra-hygienic silicone, is odor-resistant, antibacterial, hypoallergenic, and that it’s waterproof. The brush head never needs replacing which makes it perfect. Also, it is so easy to hold and maneuver around the face because of the handle. The bristles feel so nice on your skin as it cleans your skin squeaky clean. The device has four different vibrations; I usually use 1 & 2 to clean my face. Then I use vibration mode 3 & 4 with the back side of the device to apply and massage my moisturizer or serum, cool right. PMD Clean does a great job and I am pretty happy with this product. It cost $99 but it’s worth it, I recommend it plus it’s a great investment.
After I clean my face I usually follow with the rest of my skincare routine. Once a week I use my PMD Microderm. I have heard of how amazing but expensive facials at a spa can be. So going to a spa was always out of the question. When I tried this the first time I felt gross (In a good way). This gave me the perfect microdermabrasion in the comfort of my own home. It removes all the junk and dead skin off your face that you didn’t even know you had because you can’t see it.
This tool has spinning discs embedded with aluminum oxide crystals to exfoliate away all dead, dull cells from the surface of your skin. It also uses “suction that increases circulation and triggers the skin’s natural healing process which boosts collagen and elastin leaving skin firm, fresh and radiant, while at the same time removing the top layer of dead, dull skin cells.”
How does it work? well, first you pick the disc that you want to use as there are a few different ones. Then you plug it in and turn it on (obviously lol…). Once on you are ready to go, my first time trying it I tested it on my arm. It’s recommended to test it on your arm or leg before using on your face. When you are ready you pull your skin tight and move the device across the skin in an upward sweeping motion. I usually move it from the center of my face to the outside. They recommended that you only go over an area of the face one time. After I am done I follow with the rest of my skincare as usual. Oh and I also wash the cap and filter after each use, you don’t want to leave your device dirty.
I have been using this tool for a couple of weeks now and I can see a difference. Even my small acne scars are almost gone. My skin is smoother and looks more clear and healthier. I feel like doing this once a week helps my other skin care products (mask, serums, moisturizer, and eye cream) do their work better. I will definitely continue to use it because it works wonders. Plus a one time splurge of $160 if better than pending tons of money on weekly/monthly facials.
Last product PMD Kiss.“This tool uses pulsating vacuum technology and formulated serum to create a fuller appearance of lip volume. With daily use, PMD Kiss will boost collagen and create long-lasting plumped up results”. I have used it a few times, although I don’t need fuller lips. Well, maybe a little on my upper lip lol… I use it more for the anti-aging properties which actually do work. It leaves your lips feeling softer and smoother. Who needs injections when you can get it done naturally. I think that if you are looking for plump smoother lips the natural way, then yes totally recommend it because it works.
So yes, that’s my secret, for not looking so sick or even when healthy. Having a good skincare routine, drinking water and taking vitamins help. Plus your skin will thank you in the long run.
Have you used any PMD Beauty products? If you have how did you like it?
