DERMAPLANING Facial step-by-step At HOME

Dermaplaning, Acid Peel, and Hydration

What is dermaplaning, and can it be done at home?

I dermaplaned my face at home, and here’s my procedure. 

Dermaplaning and taking care of your skin at home is extremely possible! It will also save you time and money, plus, you’ll love how smooth and bright your skin will be.

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment in which a scalpel scrapes dead skin cells and peach fuzz (also known as vellus hair) off your face. 

Most will have this treatment done in the office, but it can be successfully done at home.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

SOURCE

Dermaplaning is beneficial because it mechanically removes the top micron of skin, allowing better product penetration and the appearance of newer, fresher skin cells to be seen.

Your skincare products will absorb deeper, and your makeup will look less makeupy because it’s going on a smoother canvas.

How often can you dermaplane at home?

We all collect skin cell buildup and unwanted vellus hair at different rates. 

Personally, I can dermaplane once per month, but typically, I tend to do it quarterly.

DERMAPLANING PROCEDURE

This is the at-home dermaplaning procedure I’ve been sharing for years, and I still love doing it this way.

Everything I use is linked below in a blog post so you can easily find everything and any current deals.

Prepping for dermaplaning basically implies a deep clean so the dermaplaning blade can easily shave off vellus hair and dead skin.

STEP 1:

For our cleanse, we’re using an enzyme wash.

This powerhouse product deep cleanses your skin and breaks up any oil that can later clog your dermaplaning blade, ensuring a smooth and effective dermaplaning session.

Along with the enzyme wash, I’m using an electric cleansing brush to help slough off dead skin cells.

STEP 2:

After cleansing, I use a strong acid toner to wipe and continue the degreasing.

STEP 3:

I use a disposable 10R blade from Swann-Morton. I like these scalps best for at-home dermaplaning. 

STEP 4:

I use the acid toner after dermaplaning to remove any skin and hair for a very clean and smooth surface.

After dermaplaning and removing dead skin and vellus hair, our skin is prepped to better accept our next step, which is a light acid peel.

STEP 5:

I use a gentle but effective acid peel. This one combines Glycolic and Salicylic acids, which are effective at brightening skin and removing debris from pores.

I have a video dedicated to this red acid peel here. 

-Glycolic acid, or AHA, brightens and helps remove dead skin cells.

-Salicylic acid, known as BHA, is lipid soluble, meaning it can penetrate oils such as those found in pores.

AND A DIFFERENT ACID PEEL VIDEO

I have a video dedicated to different acid peels, how they work, and which acids are best for your skin.

Following the acid peel our skin is ready to receive recovery and moisture.

STEP 6:

I’m using a Green Rooibos toner from Masama to increase the LED penetration of the Maysama Prana mask. 

MAYSAMA LED FACE MASK Code nkaos10 

MAYSAMA TONER code nkaos10 

Maysama Green Rooibos Pressed Serum is proven to MORE THAN DOUBLE outcomes for skin rejuvenation when used in combination with Red LED Light treatment. 

Maysama’s green rooibos extract works synergistically with red light to help improve mitochondria bioenergetics.

I let the toner absorb into my skin, and then I put on my red LED mask. This mask has three modes, and I’m using the Red + Near-infrared setting.

Red + NIR: Red Light and near-Infrared Wavelengths have distinct but complementary actions on dermal fibroblast cells, increasing fibroblast proliferation and aiding the maturation of fibroblasts to secrete collagen for pro-aging benefits. Near-infrared penetrates deeper into the skin than red light, with additional anti-inflammatory benefits.  

This combo of Green Rooibos with Red LED is documented to improve elasticity by 55%, decrease wrinkles and erythema by 30%, and decrease pigmentation by 23%.

If you are going to use Red LED light, you should get the most impact possible, and this combination appears to be highly successful.

Having less build-up on your skin helps this light be even more effective.

STEP 7:

It’s time to hydrate. I’m starting with the One Skin topical supplement. This is formulated with a peptide called OS-01. It’s the first ingredient scientifically proven to reverse skin’s biological age at the molecular level. As we age, we build up senescent cells. These cells no longer work properly, causing us to look older.

The OS-01 Peptide repairs cellular pathways, promotes key markers associated with collagen production, reduces melanin deposits, and enhances epidermal thickness.

STEP 8:

I’m layering on a biocellulos peptide sheet mask to hydrate and push in hydration. I place a sheet mask cover to ensure hydration moves into my skin and not into the atmosphere. CITY BEAUTY Hydromask

STEP 9:

I like to multitask. While my face receives hydration, I’m treating my scalp for stronger hair growth.

 I’ve used a high-frequency wand for years, and my most loved protocol is using it in my hair to boost circulation, which aids in stronger hair follicle creation.

STEP 10: 

It’s time to apply sunscreen. 

I’m using the Kosas Dream Beam Sunlit 40 SPF, a mineral sunscreen with 21.7% Zinc Oxide that provides an 80-minute physical sun barrier.

STEP 11:

After, I add the Glow Recipe watermelon glow niacinamide hue drops

This is a brightening niacinamide serum that includes a bronzing glow.

STEP 12:

Is mascara. I’m using the Queen Musia 2053 mascara in simply black.

STEP 13:

Is a little lip gloss. I’m using the Innabeauty Project Lip Oil in Pina Colada. 

This is not only hydrating and sparkly, it also tastes supreme like you’re on a tropical vacation.

Remember, I have a lot of beauty products to play with. 

You do not need everything I used but the blog is linked so you can easily see what I used and when. I hope this step-by-step experience gave you an idea of where you can place your existing products and then fill in with anything you need or want to try.

Remember, your dreams have a purpose; giving them value is up to you. Happy Memorial Day 😘

If you’ve ever wondered who are these people online, who document their lives hour by hour…how did that become a business…don’t they get embarrassed…is it hard posting daily…how do they stay consistent…

I think about these things too!!!

There is no one telling me what to do…what to post…what to create…etc…
This might seem liberating, and it can be…however carte blanche isn’t always as romantic as one might think.

Staying motivated daily is what any business requires, especially an online independent one.

The “consistency skill set” I’ve earned from being online aids me in other goals I set for myself. It comes down to self-discipline and the continued belief in yourself that you can do hard things.

When you accomplish one thing, that personal success should fuel you toward your next accomplishment. I truly believe it’s the small, consistent steps, the micro-decisions you make hourly, that bring you success.

It will never be one thing. Stop thinking that way! 

In fact, be elated that it’s not simply one thing since we make numerous mistakes daily. Instead of self-loathing, keep an optimistic mindset that you will never give up on yourself. 😘

Hot yoga on Saturdays can inspire anxiety in me…

I was explaining to my friends that Saturday, hot yoga classes always give me arrival anxiety…

Mentally I need yo prepare because I know they will be packed…mat to mat.

As I enter, the heat cloud hits me in the face from a previous class and the walls are already dripping with perspiration 😂🙈

I need to arrive at least 30 minutes before class to start acclimating to the heat and secure a spot where I feel comfortable.

My 6am week day classes are very different from Saturday mid morning classes.

During the week, 6am isn’t  as packed, so the class initially isn’t as hot. By the end of class the heat will be fully optimized however, initially, it’s not as intense as a Saturday class. 

With this in mind, during the week, later mid morning classes are actually as intense as the Saturday classes but I rarely go to weekday mid morning.

Those who attend 10am everyday are beasts!!!

Today, was a beautiful hot class. Thank you @drewusantos for a great flow…and you gave enough time for “dancing Sheba” thank you 🙏🏻😂

I like arriving to class early and giving myself time to acclimate and stretch it out. 

🎁Give yourself the gift of arriving early to classes.🎁

If you get anxiety arrive early and settle in. Taking this extra step makes my flow even better because I don’t feel rushed or overwhelmed.

Happy Saturday my friends…
I promise to work on an epic MELANOTAN peptide video for this week. I have some new ideas and thoughts on it after using it for a month…stay tuned…

I’m headed home from yoga to start writing ✍️😘 then I’ll have to film 🎥😂🙈 I want to lay out too 😆 I’ll get it all in:)

Comment “DRESS” for this easy and inexpensive Amazon dress.
It’s a knit so it packs well. I’ve already washed it and it came out the same as when it went in. It has a cute cut out that will be flattering for most.

SAVE For LATER:) quick GYM routine ⬇️ And can you believe how tan I am? I can’t!!! 

Currently I’m using MELANOTAN 2, in order to build a better skin sun protection. This peptide has increased my melanocytes melanin production.

Quick Fact:
Did you know that we all have the same amount of melanocytes in our skin. I’m super fair and apparently I have the same number of melanocytes as someone from African decent. The key difference; my melanocytes don’t produce as much melanin as someone who has olive or black skin tones.

MELANOTAN 2 increases the alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone aka MSH

“In our skin, we have pigment cells and we have hormones that regulate the activity of those pigment cells. So what Melanotan-Il does is mimic the action of those hormones and upregulate the activity of our pigment cells.” 

MELANOTAN 2 increases MSH and this signals to our melanocytes to make more melanin. This peptide that I inject daily as I load is helping me protect my skin from the sun by coating my cells in melanin. 

My body can produce melanin as evident by my current color. However, my MSH rarely activates so little melanin is produced. With the MELANOTAN 2 peptide my skin is finally acclimating to the sun.

I have a sun allergy and this is helping me avoid having the polymorphous rash eruption. Basically my skin breaks into red itchy welts and water blisters. It’s extremely painful, itchy and bleeds. 

My skin can now acclimate to the sun versus needing steroids to go out by the pool or beach.
