Summertime requires a skincare reboot, and choosing the proper products for maximum efficacy during the warm months is imperative. Finding an effective, non-stripping cleanser and hard-working exfoliant that requires minimal effort, and maximum results, is what we all seek. With that in mind, I have two products from Dr. Brandt that meet this criteria that I would like to share with you.

Dr. Brandt Xtend Your Youth A3 Power Foaming CleanserDr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator ($58.00 for 2 oz. from Dr. Brandt Skincare, Sephora, Ulta, Macy's and Birchbox): While I do not have what I would describe as enlarged pores, I do love a very effective exfoliant, and I am utterly transfixed by the efficacy and visible results from Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator.
Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion is an ultra-fine grit physical and chemical exfoliant that features uniformly shaped tiny exfoliating particles that gentle on the skin. Because of their uniformity they neither scratch, nor tear the skin, and therefore skin isn't in the least bit traumatized as is often the case after using assertive exfoliants. This exfoliator is so effective that one only needs to use a featherlight touch when massaging it on the skin. Since PoreDermabrasion pore perfecting exfoliator features physical and chemical exfoliators, it is a true dual action exfoliator. The physical exfoliating particles loosen and lift dead skin cells while the chemical exfoliants deeply cleanse congested pores. In order to take advantage of both types of exfoliants, I apply a small amount to damp skin and gently massage it in a circular motion for about a minute. I move it around my face without overdoing it in any one spot, and I always err on the side of caution to avoid over-exfoliation. Once I have finished this step I leave it on my face for a couple of minutes to allow the chemical exfoliants to deeply cleanse my pores, and then I rinse my skin very well to remove every trace of this potent exfoliant. The first thing that I notice is that my skin feels soft, smooth and supple, but not in the least bit stripped. What I immediately noticed, even after my first use, was that my congested pores were visibly cleared, and that my skin looked soft, supple, radiant and was silky smooth to the touch. While my pores aren't large, they definitely were less noticeable.
According to Dr. Brandt,
PoreDermabrasion is a unique professional grade physical and chemical exfoliator and pore perfector in one. No matter how old you are or what type of skin you have, enlarged pores are a huge concern. Shrink them down to the vanishing point while smoothing and evening skin’s texture.
