Defining self-love with skincare.

3 Popular DIY Self-Love Skin Treatments to Try At Home
When you get a treatment in a medical spa, they use multiple products and even modalities to achieve a specific effect. This is because combining synergistic products produces the best results! We will be implementing the same strategy below:
Skin Brightening Treatment
Cleanse with Microderm Exfoliant. Appropriate for all skin types, this gentle exfoliant uses Bamboo Extract to take off dead skin cells while Lactic Acid, a gentle AHA, stimulates cell turnover which reduces hyperpigmentation and brightens skin. Microderm Exfoliant is gentle enough for daily use, but if you have especially sensitive skin, you can use it every other day or as needed.
Treat with Radiant-C Clay Mask + Brite Lite Serum. A professional-strength clay-based mask activated with antioxidants and natural enzymatic exfoliants, this Vitamin C clay mask gently dissolves dead skin build-up and impurities. A slight tingling sensation may be experienced. The Kaolin and Bentonite clays in the mask help soak up excess oils and remove built-up residue in the skin for a glowing complexion.
Brite Lite is a potent skin brightening serum. It contains natural melanin-inhibiting ingredients like Kojic Acid and Licorice Root, while also using their anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial powers to relieve acne.
Glow with the LED Face Mask. It’s important to note that not all LED Therapy Face Masks are created equal. In fact, many masks on the market do not have any effects at all because they are not using the correct wavelengths. The Dp Dermaceuticals LED Mask is a non-invasive treatment that exposes your face not only to red (633nm) but also near infra-red (830nm) light frequencies which travel deeper into the skin.
A single 10-minute session of the Dp Dermaceuticals LED Face Mask leaves your skin feeling plumper, more hydrated and refreshed. These results improve with repeated use. After four weeks of three treatments per week:
- 95% agree skin was brighter and plumper
- 98% agree skin felt firmer
- 96% agree fine lines were less visible
PRO TIP: Prepping skin with the proper cleanser is always the first step to a successful skin treatment. It helps lower the chance of breakouts if dirt gets into your pores and allows products to absorb better!
Skin Hydrating TreatmentCleanse with Tri-Phase Cleanser. Especially effective in removing makeup with one use, TPC goes on dry as a balm, turns into a gel when massaged into the skin, then transforms into a cleansing milk when water is added. Your skin will feel cleansed, hydrated, and ready to absorb the next product in your skincare routine.
Treat with Antioxidant Cocktail. Give your skin a big gulp of free-radical-fighting antioxidants! The ultimate Vitamin C serum, the Antioxidant Cocktail protects and repairs your skin from environmental damage such as UV exposure by neutralizing free radicals.
Hydrate with HylaActive. Hydrate your skin with an intensive infusion of triple-weight hyaluronic acid. Formulated with the patented HylaFuse technology, HylaActive brings hydration to multiple layers of tissue which allows for moisture to be drawn to them, resulting in skin’s glowing, healthy appearance.
Skin Anti-Aging TreatmentCleanse with Tri-Phase or CLR Cleansers. You already know all about the wondrous TPC, but if you are prone to acne, CLR Foam Cleanser may be the best choice for you. It contains Salicylic Acid, Manuka Honey and Amino Acids that work synergistically to clear and prevent breakouts. It also makes for a great Valentine’s Day gift for the man in your life as it can double as shaving cream!
Nourish with Vitamin Rich Repair. Hydrated skin looks healthier and younger. But it also needs nourishing vitamins. Nourish and hydrate daily with a powerful combination of triple-weighted hyaluronic acid, Vitamin A and Vitamin E in Vitamin Rich Repair.
End with the holy grail of rejuvenation: Exosome Therapy. A coveted anti-aging skin treatment at medical spas, the rejuvenating exosome therapy is now available for at-home use with Dp Dermaceuticals EXO-SKIN. This rejuvenating serum uses ethically-sourced exosomes to boost natural cellular repair, maximizing the potential of skin regeneration and reducing signs of aging skin.
We wish you lots of (self)love this Valentine’s Day!
