How to Use a Facial Dermaroller

This .25 mm dermaroller for the face is sponsored by Linduray Skincare! This tool is SO affordable, less than $30 because Linduray is having a SALE right now! Click the above link to check it out. Many brands sell dermarollers, not just this website!

Before you ask, NO it is not painful because the needles are only .25 mm long! It feels more like a massage, if you are gentle and use the tool correctly. Obviously, don’t jam the needles into your skin or use it near your eyes…hoping that is self-explanatory!

Why should you dermaroll?! To…

  • Decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin
  • Drastically improve your skin texture and complexion
  • Open pores and promote cell regeneration

It’s like microneedling in a way, but not nearly as expensive, you can do it at home, and it is less painful. However, you need to continually use the dermaroller to see results. I recommend a few times per week. Warning: it leaves your skin red for a few minutes!

As a reminder, always sanitize and disinfect your dermaroller with isopropyl alcohol before and after every use. Roll it on your clean face 4-8 times in horizontal, vertical, and diagonal directions. Wait 2 days before your next treatment to let your skin heal! Watch how to use in the video below. Ask me any questions in the comments 🙂

Daily Dose of First Aid: Guide to Eye Creams

The first inspiration I got for starting a blog in the first place was from my fellow neighborhood moms. These cool moms-on-the-block always love asking me about my favorite makeup products and specifically anti-aging products they can use. Obviously, being 19 years old, I don’t know much about anti-aging products yet. Thankfully,  I found this amazing “Best Eye Cream” guide to share with you all! Here is a quick summary of the comprehensive guide:

“The best eye cream comes down to using the right ingredients on the right issue. The most common: wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles. We talked to multiple dermatologists, and pored over skincare research to find which ingredients were ideal for each issue and what ingredients to avoid overall. Then, we tested our finalists to see which ones left our skin feeling moisturized and ready to layer.”

The guide further goes on the rank the best out of over 318 products (with a large range of prices!) based on the target issue. Don’t worry-any products that contained common skin irritants were CUT from the list!

Check out the full guide at HERE to find the best eye cream for you.
