How is the ENHANCEMENTS Lip Micro-Dermabrasion different from a lip balm?

Lip Micro-Dermabrasion is not a lip balm but an exfoliating and conditioning treatment specially formulated for the delicate lip tissue. Lip balms deposit a waxy coating to condition lips.
Lip Micro-Dermabrasion renews the lips’ surface to help define lips and can be used to reduce the appearance of lipstick bleed lines.
Avoid using Lip Micro-Dermabrasion products on cold sores, sun burned lips and when experiencing other lip irritations. Do not use on extremely sensitive skin.

Can I use the ENHANCEMENTS Lip Micro-Dermabrasion if I’m getting my lip waxed? Or having a light glycolic peel?

Due to the exfoliating ingredients, do not use the Lip Micro-Dermabrasion two days before and after an upper lip wax, light chemical peel or any other lip area treatment. Also, avoid using Lip Micro-Dermabrasion products on cold sores, sun burned lips and when experiencing other lip irritations.

Can I use the ENHANCEMENTS Lip Micro-Dermabrasion with my makeup?

Yes, you can use the ENHANCEMENTS Lip Micro-Dermabrasion in the morning before beginning your regular skincare routine and applying makeup.

What is the best way to use the ENHANCEMENTS Body Micro-Dermabrasion?

ENHANCEMENTS Body Micro-Dermabrasion feels like an indulgence, but works as a therapeutic, multi-benefit skin treatment. For use in the shower or tub, this 3-in-1micro-dermabrasion treatment exfoliates, cleanses and conditions skin in one invigorating step for all-over renewal, revealing smooth, touchable, youthful-looking skin.

How often should I use ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste?

Use ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion paste one to three times a week on dry skin in place of your cleanser to refresh and renew the skin’s surface. Follow with your skincare routine. Those with sensitive skin may apply the paste to damp skin and add water while gently massaging skin to reduce the amount of exfoliation. The ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is not recommended for extremely sensitive skin.

When should I use the ENHANCEMENTS Body Micro-Dermabrasion?

You can use the ENHANCEMENTS Body Micro-Dermabrasion in the shower before shaving to provide a smooth surface for a close shave on legs, bikini area and underarms and to prep skin for precise application of bronzers and self-tanners.

What should I use to exfoliate the dry skin on my face?

ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste is a high-glide, oil-free formula designed to promote maximum, gentle exfoliation. Use intermittently to enhance cell turnover and improve skin tone and texture. Control the extent of the exfoliation by adding water to dissolve the salt and sugar crystals. Massage directly onto skin of face for 30 - 60 seconds; do not wet skin before use. For gentler exfoliation, use on damp skin and slowly add water to lessen the intensity of the exfoliation. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use one to three times per week in place of a cleanser. Not intended for extremely sensitive skin.

How do I choose the right shade of Mineral Peptides SPF 20?

Based on your experience, choose the color that seems similar to what you have worn before. Our shades are very forgiving so one shade will work for many skin tones. You may also choose two colors and blend for a closer shade or use the darker color (Bronze) to define cheek bones. The Light shade can also be used as a highlighter and applied to upper cheeks, above the upper lip and mid- forehead.

How should I clean the retractable brush?

The retractable brush is comprised of synthetic hairs that are treated with a non-toxic, hypo-allergenic solution that repels and destroys bacteria and protects it from mold and fungus. We recommend cleaning the brush by swirling it around in a solution of mild soap and water, re-shaping it and allowing it to dry naturally. For a quick cleaning, apply brush cleaner onto a firm paper towel and swirl to remove pigment. Follow by swirling on a dry towel to remove excess moisture. Make sure that the brush is dry before dabbing it in the ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides SPF 20.
