Life Update + Fall Beauty Favorite: PMD Beauty

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network and PMD Beauty. As always, all opinions are my own!

Considering we're days away from November, you would think I'd be over here, in New York... jumping up and down because I'm wearing my cozy scarves and cardigans and boots - yet it's warm, humid and I still am wearing short sleeves! I even came down with a sinus infection and a cold all at once because of this hot/cold/hot/cold crazy weather, ugh! I've also been a little MIA lately around here; atop of everything else I had going on in the always busy month of September, I've been in probably the biggest creative rut and unmotivated state in a LONG time. It happens from time to time, but this time has been different. I'm finally getting back in the groove and it feels so good, but feeling overwhelmed doesn't - and it's taken a toll on my skin and my skincare routine in particular.

Aside from my everyday makeup musts, I always like to change up my beauty routine to coincide with the current season. In the summer, I use lighter moisturizers and BB/CC creams and in the colder months I use dry skin cleansers and darker eye liner colors, for example. I recently started trying out the PMD Beauty Personal Microderm tool and so far, I'm pretty sure I'm in love!

For probably close to a year now, I've been seeing PMD Beauty as I'd scroll through the Sephora/Ulta websites and see the incredible reviews, but never pulled the trigger. Microdermabrasion is one of those cosmetic fixes that most have heard of but don't know much about - myself included! It basically is the ultimate exfoliation process for your skin and leaves your skin looking and feeling smooth and glowing.

I'm one of those people who asks my dermatologist EVERYTHING - and I have no shame about it either, ha! I actually never had considered getting microderm treatments and I think it's because I really didn't know much about it, and it's one of the (few) things I hadn't asked the dermatologist about before. When I got my PMD Beauty in, I asked about it and she said it's one of the best microderm tools out there and good lord it IS! It's so convenient to use and extremely effective - and I've only been using it for about two weeks. It's not meant to be used every day, so it's pretty incredible how it's working after a matter of 2-3 treatments! Since it's meant to exfoliate, using the PMD Beauty helps get rid of any dead or dull skin cells (it's NOT painful at all since it's not a deep-skin type of treatment - that's one of the common misconceptions about microdermabrasion!). PMD also has patented Spinning Discs, made with aluminum oxide crystals which creates the exfoliation process. It's so cool how it actually works, especially when you see it happening after each treatment! This type of exfoliation allows for healthy cell growth, leading to healthier skin and less of a problem in the future.

In about a month, I'm going to share some before and afters of my skin - it starts to get dry this time of year from the weather changes so it's the perfect time to be trying this out! The best part I've learned about the PMD is that it can be used on your arms, legs - any part of your body that you want smoother - you aren't limited to using it on your face. It's already been my top beauty tool this season and I know I'll be using it year round too! I'm so excited to share how it goes, so look for the results next month. :)

It feels so good to be getting back into the creative zone and looking for inspiration for blog and social posts, interacting and networking again and gearing up toward the holidays - eek! It's getting so close and after taking a much needed social media break, I'm ready for it! I've always been lucky enough to have clear skin but when I'm stressed my skin takes a hit. The PMD Beauty has been a serious life saver - I love getting at-home treatments like this! If you've tried it, I'd love to hear how you like it - or if you've done microderm treatments I'd love to hear about those too!
