Have you ever taken a second glance at your favorite exfoliator’s label and pondered what the ingredients are actually doing? I found myself asking that the other day while scrubbing my face with my new favorite exfoliator, Vasanti’s BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. The scrub gently buffs away imperfections, while nourishing papaya enzymes break down dead skin cells to even out your complexion. The result is perfectly smooth, flaw-free skin— without a pricey trip to the dermatologist. But what about that mystery ingredient, microderm crystals?
A little sleuthing revealed that these crystals are actually ultra-fine minerals designed to buff away dead skin. Not only that, they help reduce long-term annoyances like fine lines, acne, and scars. Since the same crystals are used in professional microdermabrasion treatments, the final results mimic those you’d get at your dermatologist’s office—minus the potential for redness and sensitivity.
We’re also crazy for these spring nail looks. The best part? You can totally pull them off.
