My Winter Skin Beauty Secret: PMD Beauty

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

Last month, I talked all about the PMD Beauty Personal Microderm at-home tool, and now that I've been using it for 6+ weeks I'm so excited to share basically how amazing and in LOVE I am with my new, secret beauty weapon! It's worked wonders on my skin and for someone who has fortunately always had pretty clear, smooth skin - this is something I never knew I needed.


It is officially FREEZING in New York... and my skin is feelin' it for REAL. There's nothing worse than that feeling the cold weather leaves on your skin, but with the right products it's simple to fix. I knew I needed something new, because even with a great routine with an awesome moisturizer, it isn't always enough. Luckily the only problem area I've had with my skin is the redness on my cheeks (seen below in the 'before' picture) that I get during the cold winter months. I've been using it for just about 6 weeks and so far I've noticed SO much less redness:

Taken a month apart; before starting the treatments and exactly 6 weeks later. Don't mind my crazy, frizzy hair, no makeup and pale self. I wanted to make sure my results were shown in good lighting! ;)

At first I used it once a week, and during week 3 I used it twice - but for a little less time during each session. Other than that, it's been every Sunday (my "me" day, lol!).


It's recommended to start using the PMD Microderm tool with the white training discs; these are made for super sensitive skin and I started using it with these disks because my skin is sensitive and this one is good at first, but it is VERY light. It's good to use to get used to though. At this point, I'm using the blue disc, which is still ideal for sensitive skin but the one to use if you've already done a few treatments. (You can see the full comparison chart HERE!) It's also important to remember to not keep the device on one spot of your skin for a long time - you want to move the device nonstop across your skin at a normal pace.

Like I mentioned previously, I'm one of those girls who asks the dermatologist every single little thing - and she still recommends this product like no other! One of my friends gets regular microderm sessions at her dermatologist and she pays $170 each time... While it may be worth it, that's a LOT when this device works just as well. I've been showing her my results, and since I've never gotten microderm done professionally I wanted to know what she thought - since it's done weekly instead of monthly as it is with the dermatologist, it isn't *as* strong but still works extremely similarly. I have never had such a strong, useful exfoliant - it sounds kind of gross, but you really can see any dead skin come off and it's such a good feeling!


When I use the PMD microderm tool, I start by washing my face thoroughly with my cleanser and then completely dry it off. It takes less than 15 minutes to use the tool on my face, and when you're finished using wash and dry your face again. I use a toner and my favorite moisturizer immediately after using and I swear my face feels insanely clean and so refreshed - I love that feeling! #itsthelittlethings

There's tons of exfoliating scrubs and all sorts of alternatives to microderm, but after trying a TON of them I think it's safe to say that nothing compares. When professional microderm sessions are as expensive as they are (considering they're needed usually once per month), this at-home tool basically pays for itself in one use. I'm excited to try it on my arms and feet next with the larger disks too!


Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this product. As someone who didn't think she needed it, we all do. I'm convinced! ;) You can get 20% off your PMD Microderm tool right now with code PRIMP20 - such a great deal!! But hurry because this won't last long! The bundle set is a great holiday gift too for just about any girl on your list!

Have you done microderm before? At home or at the dermatologist? I'd love to hear what you think - I am SO intrigued by this now!

  15. Nice!! Winter weather is not fun for skin. Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture away from the skin every second of every day. Without immediate care, dry skin can lead to cracking and bleeding, and harsh winter wind makes the problem worse. Additional moisture like revitol anti aging moisturizing cream helps, but you need to do more to actually counteract these effects and keep skin looking youthful and smooth.
