Celebrities such as Kaia Gerber, Taraji P Henson, Janelle Monae, and Ashley Benson, have been devotees of the DERMAFLASH, the prosumer (professional-consumer) dermaplaning device, since its launch two years ago.  The multi-tasking facial tool, which removes dead cells to reveal a fresh skin surface, has recently taken on the equally important task of protecting new dermis with a post-flash partner, DERMAPROTECT Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+.  DERMAPROTECT is a luxurious tinted cream which offers the mineral UVA/UVB protection of a broad spectrum sunscreen, with the hydration and antioxidant benefits of a BB Cream.  The unique formulation blends with all skin tones, providing a sheer wash of color which both primes the skin and blurs the appearance of pores.  Non-comedogenic and cruelty-free, DERMAPROTECT controls oil production while providing a physical barrier to environmental damage without the added chemicals.

DERMAFLASH, is offering thirty lucky Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG a tube of its new DERMAPROTECT Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ (retail $45) simply by following them on Instagram (or liking them on Facebook) and entering through the on-line form here. This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only (no PO Boxes, please!).  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks from notification.

Dermaplaning is a method of facial exfoliation which scrapes off the fine upper layers of dead skin and hair, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion.  Performed for more than twenty years in doctors’ and estheticians’ offices, it is a favorite skincare treatment among Hollywood A-listers.  According to celebrity esthetician, Sherry Achi, of Aspen’s exclusive Skin Therapy Clinic, “Dermaplaning is a great exfoliating treatment to remove our dead cell build up of ‘crust’ that accumulates each month. This crust can stop the absorption of our serums and moisturizers we use each day.”  Citing several benefits from the treatment (faster cell regeneration, new collagen production, increased cell metabolism, removal of sun damaged layers and “Nordic Fur” on the face), Achi likens it to “rebuilding a new 20 layer brick wall of skin with new mortar-(collagen) and  bricks-(cells).”

Performed in feathering strokes while holding the skin taut, a ten-inch scalpel (or curette) blade crosses clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck.  The technique prevents the  redness, irritation, and heat and capillary breakage that you can get from the vacuum pressure of a Dermabrasion treatment.  “I remove 3 times the amount of dead skin with Dermaplaning than my 4 Dermabrasion machines can,” Achi adds.  Home maintenance, however, is key.  While some professionals recommend weekly at-home peels, we discovered the budget-friendly Shiseido Facial Razor.  Akin to more expensive prosumer devices, such as the Dermaflash, it helps us easily remove light dermal build-up, discoloration, and peach fuzz accrued between our coveted Skin Therapy appointments.
