derma e Microdermabrasion Recovery Serum

As much as I try to take care of my skin--using products with natural and/or organic ingredients, keeping it exfoliated, protecting it from the harmful rays of the sun--there are times when I go a bit overboard. And when that happens, the smooth and clear lustrous skin that I long for turns red and angry and ugly.

Fortunately I've found something that can soothe and calm irritated skin: derma e Microdermabrasion Recovery Serum. Although it was formulated as a companion product to derma e's Microdermabrasion line, this blend of anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory nutrients not only comforts newly exfoliated skin, but calms other forms of irritation as well.

The ingredients include:

Glycerin - shores up the skin’s natural protection by filling in the area known as the intercellular matrix and by attracting just the right amount of water to maintain the skin’s homeostasis.

Aloe - has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities.

Panthenol - can be effective for hydration and wound healing.

Allantoin - considered an effective anti-irritant.

Willowherb - can have antimicrobial and anti-irritant properties for skin.

Calendula - antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Pycnogenol - a potent antioxidant with strong free-radical-scavenging properties.

I can see this product being an invaluable addition to one's skin care arsenal with summer coming up soon: to soothe a sunburn, to comfort post-shaving, to calm and reduce redness after tweezing or waxing and to nourish and protect after exfoliation. And like all derma e products, it is is paraben-free, cruelty-free, 100% vegetarian.
