My Latest Zit Zapper From Dermalogica


We have all had that moment that we just finished a fantastic workout at the gym and realize that now we have to wash our face with the dreaded pump soap because we left our face wash at home. Now we don’t have to!

It is no secret to our site that I struggle with having acne prone skin and this has been a constant battle since I had my second baby. I have established a pretty successful routine, but when I get set back the most is when I don’t have time or the ability to wash my face.  I break out for days if I don’t wash 2 or 3 times a day!

Dermalogica has created a pack of 20 remoistened wipes in the mediBac line that contain Salicylic acid and can surely help acne prone skin in a pinch. I keep these around my house, in my gym bag, and one in my purse. If I should ever find that I am somewhere that I MUST wash my face, I just use a wipe. It sure beats hand soap. The wipes retail for $18 per pack (20 wipes) and can be purchased at www.Dermalogica.com.

GIVEAWAY: Change Your Skin with The PMD Personal Microderm and Enter for a Chance to Win One!


Exfoliation is so essential for healthy skin and I have recently discovered a microdermabrasion system that has changed my skin. I have always had combination skin that was very dry in some spots and very oily, with pimples, in others. Trying to find products that would perform well with my skin type has always been an issue.

I started using the PMD about a month ago and what a difference it has made. My dry spots are completely gone and my oily spots have become less oily and my skin texture is incredible.

The PMD system is easy to use and comes with an instructional DVD to ensure you are using the system properly. You will learn all the steps necessary to get the level of exfoliation appropriate for your skin. I have worked my way up to the strongest disc and use it once every 6 days with fantastic results. It has been featured on Good Morning America, Dr. Oz, The Doctors, and Extra!

Since starting the PMD system, my makeup goes on smoother, I use less of it, and it seems to me that my skincare products are working better as well. I have been getting compliments like “Your skin is beautiful!” and “You look refreshed” which is a very new experience for me. I am sure my skin is looking and feeling so great because I am now getting all the dead skin off and my skincare products (an article to come on my Dermalogica skincare routine) are able to work their magic on fresh, healthy skin.

The system is recommended for those with fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne, skin discolorations, and other imperfections who want smooth, even-toned skin (source: www.personalmicroderm.com). My skin has completely transformed since starting my PMD routine and I am confident yours will too.

The PMD Personal Microderm System is available at www.personalmicroderm.com for $179.99.

A lucky A Beauty Loft reader will have a chance to win their very own PMD Personal Microderm System!
