IMG_0266.jpeg

Named one of 2018’s biggest beauty trends, the Derma Roller is here to stay. It’s earned it’s staying power because with regular use, derma-rolling (or at home micro-needling) delivers really effective results.

When you combine our Dermaplump Dermaroller with any of your current skincare faves, such as a serum, moisturiser or mask, the results immediately become 110 times times better!!! Why? Because derma-rolling prepares the skin to better absorb product, helping to deliver visible improvements in lines, wrinkles, scarring and skin firmness in just 4 weeks.

What is a derma-roller?

A derma-roller is a micro-exfoliating tool, it creates a natural reaction in the skin.. The Dermaplump Dermaroller brings the benefits of derma-rolling to home users. The tiny needles wake the skin and put it into repair mode creating collagen and new tissue in the area .Its proprietary, high-precision tips safely and gently condition the skin, which makes the products applied afterward more effective.

Why should you use a derma-roller?

You’re probably spending a fortune on skincare but you’re not getting the results you were promised. With regular use of our derma-roller, you will see better, faster results from your skincare products.

How do you use it?

At night, after cleansing and toning, gently roll the tool over your skin. Pass it four to 10 times over your face, neck and chest. Roll up and down, side to side and diagonally, avoiding the eye area. Do this for no longer than 2 minutes. Apply your usual night time skincare products or a face mask.

How do you care for your roller?

After each use, run it under warm water. Store it in it’s case straight after washing and replace every 8-10 weeks.

Skin Sabotage, things you do that you really shouldn’t

Flawless glowing skin, is that really too much to ask? We’re inundated with lotions and potions for this and that, and dos and don’ts to achieve that soft ethereal youthful look. But for all your good intentions ladies there are things you do to your skin that you really shouldn’t! Here’s a look at some of the most awful things you can do to your skin, while thinking it’s harmless. Guaranteed you do most of them too!

1: Exfoliating too often.

Surely exfoliation is the holy grail of glowing skin, right? Wrong. Ok, skin with dirt and bacteria looks less than desirable but scrubbing away at your skin like it’s the inside of a well used oven is not the answer. Do it too often and you’ll injure your skin, leading to dryness & inflammation. You’ll also destroy healthy cells & promote skin hyperpigmentation while stripping away natural oils. Once to twice a week is plenty, especially for your face.

2: Slathering on the eye cream.

In every advertisement you’ll see for eye creams, you’ll see a model with a yoghurt like concoction under each eye, so you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is how you’re supposed to do it. We are under the illusion that thicker means it’s more effective. The reality of it is that many of these heavy eye creams contain oils and these are not easily absorbed by the delicate skin in the eye area. So because it’s sitting on top of the skin it’s also giving a false sense of hydration. What you’re feeling is grease, not moisture. As a rule, a good eye cream feels more like a serum. The more you know!

3: Washing your face in the morning.

Cleansing your face may seem like a great way to start your day, but while you’re sleeping your skin regenerates, re-establishing it’s PH levels and increasing collagen production. Why would you want to wash away all this hard work? Just a quick rinse with water in the shower and moisturise and you’re good to go!

4: Hot showers.

It’s so tempting at the end of a long day to be hypnotized by a hot shower. But getting right in and allowing the hot water to beat down on your face is one habit that you need to break. Hot water strips your skin of it’s moisture leaving you with overwhelming dryness. If you have oily skin this dryness promotes further oil production. You should only use lukewarm water to allow your skin to retain it’s natural oils and maintain a healthy balance.

5: Body Lotion

Convenience is surely the enabler of a lot of your bad habits. Body lotion is no exception. Applying body lotion to your face does not promote healthy facial care. They are designed with the body in mind, which tends to have much thicker skin than your face. How many times have you stood there with extra body lotion on your hands and just quickly rubbed it into your face? Yep, guilty. Your face needs gentleness, it’s sensitive so make sure you treat it accordingly.

Whoopsies, who would’ve thought those kinds of things were doing more harm than good? You may remember from our posts on our at home micro needler and collagen face masks that your skin deserves the best you can possibly give it.

Forget everything you think you know about skincare, and give yourself the gift of gold. Your skin will thank you for it!

 

Why gold is your new best friend!

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, or so the saying goes. Well, it may be time for you to re-evaluate your friendships ladies, as our new range of 24 carat gold collagen masks prove that there’s a new bestie in town – gold.

There are 3 different masks in the collection, a face mask, eye masks and lip masks. As we mentioned in our microneedling post they work in golden perfection together. All three contain the same ingredients so whatever mask you choose, one, two or all three you are giving your skin the gift of gold. Fabulously flawless skin without the filter? Yes please!

So, what are the benefits of these masks and their ingredients? Let’s look at each main ingredient and what they do for your skin.

HYALURONIC ACID:

As collagen stores decline, the appearance of wrinkles, discoloration and dehydration become more visible. Maximizing collagen levels will keep the skin supple, fresh and youthful. Hyaluronic acid keeps collagen synthesis up, as well as retaining skin moisture. This helps contribute to the anti-aging benefits to the skin.

As we age, our skin loses the ability to preserve moisture, resulting in visible loss of firmness, pliability and plumpness. In swoops our hero Hyaluronic acid with the ability to replenish moisture that is crucial to having younger looking, heaven sent skin.

At the same time, it revitalizes skin’s outer layers so they look and feel softer, smoother and glowingly hydrated to instantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Its calming, hydrating, and antioxidant properties are great for all skin types, even for rosacea-prone and eczema-prone skin.

Simply put, hyaluronic acid has powerful anti-aging properties and is also one of the premier hydrating ingredients for skin, even for oily, sensitive, or breakout-prone skin.

RETINOL A:

Our second super ingredient is Retinol A. The term describes vitamin A derivatives that unclog pores, boost collagen and elastin production to reduce fine lines and speed up cell turnover to even out discoloration and smooth the skin.

Retinol A also helps your skin stay hydrated and glowing without irritation. Thanks to all this healthy turnover, retinol can treat and prevent everything from stubborn cystic acne and eczema to sun induced wrinkles and dark spots.

If you want help to visibly diminish those fine lines and wrinkles, increase the firmness and smooth and refine the surface of the skin, retinol A is your saviour of choice. It’ll also help mitigate the effects of environmental stressors. Radiance? You’ll bask in it!

COLLAGEN:

You probably know by now that collagen is essential for the health and appearance of your skin and this protein is also necessary to reduce signs of aging. It’s an important building block for elasticity, vital to firm sagging skin and again like it’s other 2 sister ingredients can help even out your skin tone.

It will diminish those fines lines and wrinkles, giving you a beautifully flawless complexion. Your skin will be wonderfully moisturised and hydrated, you’ll feel replenished and have visibly younger looking skin. What’s not to love?

Collagen also acts as a fantastic filler for old acne scars, laughter lines and crows feet, making the skin smoother in appearance and firmer to the touch. You really couldn’t ask for a better trio in terms of skin care!

The luxurious 24 Carat gold masks from Dermaplump are just that, pure luxury. Your skin deserves the best, so why not give it the best?

Why you NEED microneedling in your life

Hundreds of tiny pin pricks going into your skin may sound like the beauty version of medieval torture, but trust us, it is literally the best thing that could happen to your face.

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) involves using hundreds of fine needles to create tiny invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of skin. It’s a minimally invasive treatment and up until now was only available in beauty salons and carried a pretty hefty price tag of €150+ per treatment!

Introducing the first at home Microneedling system for a fraction of the cost, the Dermaplump Dermaroller. Our roller has 540 titanium needles and is designed to give you fabulously flawless skin without the filter.

The small handheld dermaroller is virtually painless and incredibly effective. The micro injuries created by the process stimulates the bodies natural wound healing process, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production, therefore reversing, as well as preventing signs of ageing.

The primary appeal of microneedling is its ability to stimulate growth of elastin and collagen which is the key to youthful looking skin. It also prevents new fine lines and wrinkles from forming. With its ability to trigger the generation of new skin cells, just a few at home sessions with our Dermaroller will noticeably reduce fine lines, crows feet, and those stubborn deep forehead wrinkles. Because it’s also utilising the bodies natural healing mechanisms the results are so natural and of course not harming the body in any way.

The down time is minimal with micro needling, your skin may be red for a few hours after (which is a really good sign!) but that’s it. You can use our roller 2-3 times per week and once you clean it correctly after each use you can get up to 8 weeks before needing to replace the roller. I’ll let you do the math on that one!

If you want to repair visible scars, reverse sun damage and pigmentation, help your tired ageing skin, shrink your pores, and get rid of all those fine lines and wrinkles, at home microneedling with Dermaplump is the solution you need as part of your skin care routine.

Another huge bonus is it helps the products you use work much more effectively. That expensive serum or face cream you use, did you know that without micro needling only 4-8% of it actually penetrates the skin? With Dermaplump it improves product absorption tremendously – actually 110 times more!!!! This makes complete sense considering the fact that our Dermaroller creates thousands of invisible holes in your skin ready to absorb products in a way clogged pores just can’t.

Our range also extends to our face masks, eye and lip masks which work in golden harmony with our roller and I’ll go into detail about the fantastic ingredients in these separately. Altogether, the collection enhances your skins natural beauty from the comfort of your own home. Give yourself the skin you deserve with Dermaplump!
