I’ve taken self care a little more seriously lately, and that has meant visits to the incredible team at Dermapure. Today, I’m sharing my 3 favourite spring skin care treatments (and a discount code!) that have made a difference for my (aging) skin!
Disclosure: Dermapure gifted me the treatments discussed below. All opinions are my own.
Why Is It Important to Take Care of Your Skin?
Skincare is a LIFELONG process! Having healthy skin helps boost my confidence and allows me to (literally) put my best face forward. When I’m eating well, exercising, using the right products, staying hydrated and am happy (key), the glow just feels good.
A daily skin care routine (especially in my 40’s) has always been really important to me. I’ve been that person who takes forever to go to bed since I was a kid – I’ve always loved pampering my skin. As the largest organ you have, your skin can reflect your overall health and wellbeing (there are skin conditions that serve as exceptions – this I know).
Dermapure is like a gym for your skin, which my skin NEEDS these days. I sure noticed a difference in my skin elasticity after turning 40! Treatments at Dermapure have been so complimentary to my at-home regime, and have paved the way for so much preventive action to help my skin age as well as it can.
My #1 Piece of Skin Care Advice
Wear sunscreen. I can’t talk about skin care without acknowledging that you need to protect your skin. Not only to reduce the aging process, but to protect against skin cancer as well. I wear sunscreen ever day. I put a cream sunscreen on first, and through the day when I’m outside I apply a powder one that Dermapure sells (it’s really awesome).
My 3 Favourite Spring Skin Treatments
Okay, this is one of my favourite treatments! HydraFacial is the best way to deeply hydrate and revitalize the skin. Gentle exfoliation, extraction and painless suction simultaneously remove impurities and hydrate the skin. Serums rich in antioxidants and peptides instantly counteract signs of aging and maximize your glow. They offer 30 minutes, 60 minutes and 75 minute treatment options.
- HydraFacial Express (30 minutes) – Designed to deep clean, exfoliate, hydrate, and protect your skin, you can enjoy the Express HydraFacial on your lunch break!
- HydraFacial Experience (60 minutes) – Add lymphatic drainage to remove waste and toxins and improve blood flow, booster serum to target specific skin conditions, and LED light therapy to reduce inflammation or bacteria.
- HydraFacial Deluxe (75 minutes) – Enjoy all the same benefits as the Experience HydraFacial on your face, neck, and chest, plus enjoy a relaxing face, neck and shoulder massage.
I cannot tell you how refreshed I feel after a HydraFacial. This would make an incredible Mother’s Day gift!
Laser Hair Removal
Full disclosure – with my European background, hair grows in places I would rather it not (ahem, chin and upper lip, I’m talking to you). In fact, as I age the hair has become courser and plucking was leaving scars on my face. Ugh. The laser hair removal has completely taken care of it. By far the best treatment that I have had, I wish I hadn’t waited so long.
The Health Canada approved platforms used at Dermapure for permanent hair reduction are carefully chosen to offer unparalleled speed and treatment efficiency. Two methods with equal results are preferred: laser or pulsed light. These two technologies are very similar in that they both deliver intense light into the hair follicle. When this light is absorbed by a living hair, it is then transformed into heat and destroys the hair bulb to prevent it from growing back. The technology best suited for you will be determined by your technician.
I have just booked this treatment and am really excited about it – I will keep you posted!
HALO is the world’s only hybrid fractional laser that treats your skin using two different types of wavelengths (ablative and non-ablative), to provide a highly effective treatment with low downtime and fast healing. HALO can eliminate years of damage and restore the luminous glow your skin had when you were younger in a single session! HALO treats a range of skin imperfections such as: wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, visible signs of aging, discoloration, enlarged pores, and scars.
