The Power Of A Dermaroller To Transform Your Skin

Categories: Lifestyle, , 1 Comment

The dermaroller is a popular skincare gadget that can benefit your skin greatly. Adding this to your regular skincare routine can do wonders for your skin. Before looking into how this product can benefit your skin, we must clear the air about one myth that people believe about the dermaroller. Although people claim it’s painful, the dermaroller is actually painless and unless you have a low tolerance to pain or you have highly sensitive skin, this gadget will not cause you any sort of discomfort. Now that we’ve clarified that, let’s take a look at how dermaroller works for your skin.

Reduces Wrinkles And Fine Lines

20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum 1 oz

Using the dermaroller around wrinkle-prone areas such as the crow lines and laugh lines on your face can help reduce these lines effectively. The dermaroller helps produce collagen and elastin which tightens the skin and makes it firm and supple.If you want your skin to stay wrinkle-free then you can also use the vitamin c and e serum immediately after you’ve used the dermaroller to get the maximum effect. This serum not only has anti-aging benefits but it also helps nourish, moisturize and hydrate your skin.

Scars

Several people suffer from scarring due to acne. This could be embarrassing especially if your job involves meeting new people. It’s no secret that people that have scars on their faces tend to be less confident. Investing in the dermaroller is a great way to help reduce these scars and get a smooth skin texture.

In addition to using the dermaroller, the squalane oil is definitely something you should use. It has high anti-bacterial properties that effectively treat acne and help prevent it from recurring. This oil is lightweight and non-greasy making it perfect for people with oily skin.

Regular use of the dermaroller along with the right skincare products can deliver results similar to cosmetic procedures that cost a lot of money.

Sun Protection

This may come as a surprise but the dermaroller can actually help treat sun-damaged skin. Since it helps stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin, it rejuvenates the skin cells and helps repair sun-damaged skin faster. It also helps your sunscreen work more efficiently.

Hyperpigmentation And Skin Infections

One of the best uses of the dermaroller is to treat hyperpigmentation which is close to the surface of the skin. Uneven pigmentation can be treated faster when products are combined with this dermaroller.

The dermaroller has also been proven to help people suffering from rosacea. However, you should remember that a dermaroller is only effective to treat ‘close to the surface’ skin problems and is not a long-term remedy for any of these conditions. You will need to club a cream or the right kind of medication along with the roller for effective treatment.

Lightens Stretch Marks

Since the dermaroller helps stimulate collagen, it is a great tool to use in order to treat stretch marks and help them fade. However, you should be cautious while using this roller around sensitive areas.

Serum – Made up of molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and has a very high concentration of active ingredients. There are water-based serums and oil-based serums. Remember, water-based serums have smaller molecules and go under your moisturizer to nourish the inner layer of the skin. Oil-based have bigger molecule and go on top of your cream to keep whatever you put underneath moist. You can apply a Serum after cleansing but before moisturizing once a day and can be used both morning and night. Lastly, store your serums in a cool, dry place and use it up within six months to a year.

Know that Serums are not replacement for moisturizer, what it does is it can boost the hydrating effects of your moisturizer. Before purchasing a serum, please know your skin issue and skin type. There are serums for anti-aging, acne prevention and brightening serums. Find also a serum depending on your skin type; If you are dealing with wrinkles, look for a serum packed with Hyaluronic acid, For discoloration or hyper pigmentation issues, l highly recommend a serum with Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) , If you have acne prone/oily skin, look for a serum without oils. Yes serums tend to be pricier but hey for a decent reason! Being super potent and concentrated, a lil goes a long way – TOTES WORTH THE MONEY!

Serum That Is Perfect On Your Skin

Do not buy a skincare product just because your favorite You Tuber or beauty blogger says that this certain product is all good. Remember, her skin type is not the same as yours. Most likely what works for her may not work for your skin. Best rule of thumb – You have to track down a formula that’s right for your skin type. Get to know your ingredients first!

If you have ACNE-PRONE skin – Look for Vitamin C to enhance skin’s repair process, Zinc to soothes irritation, Salicylic acid to unclog pores and Retinol to reduce inflammation.

If you have DRY skin – Vitamin E is the answer. It is an anti-oxidant and improves skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid to retain moisture and Glycolic Acid to retain moisture.
