Do You Have Dermatoporosis?
Have you ever noticed that the older you get, the more easily your skin seems to bruise? It isn’t your imagination.
According to DerMend, it’s a condition called dermatoporosis. As we age, they say, not only do our bones get more brittle and prone to breakage but so does our skin.
Your skin can experience a gradual thinning over time and become more fragile and vulnerable to the type of bruising that you might have just brushed off in past years.
The condition can be much worse if you’ve ignored the health of your skin in your 20-40’s. A lot of exposure to the sun and even some medications can make dermatoporosis even worse.
We’re not trying to alarm you or ruin your day! Actually, we have some good news about how to treat dermatoporosis:
DerMend Moisturizing Bruise Formula Cream ($29.99 4.5 fl. oz.) is an easily-accessible (think drugstores, mass market retailers) skincare cream that works to improve the appearance of dark bruises while it also works hard to restore your skin’s natural barrier, improve skin texture, maintain collagen and elastin production, and boost moisture.
The unscented, fragrance-free, light moisturizing cream absorbs quickly and makes skin look and feel nourished, thanks to ceramides, retinol, arnica oil and glycolic acid (just to name a few). Even better, DerMend asserts that there’s “no sensitizing ingredients” in the cream so it can be used on sensitive skin.
The white tube with rose and raspberry accents and a raspberry flip top lid is actually pretty.
How to Use DerMend/Our Test:
In our test, used twice a day, we did feel a bit of a tingle which wasn’t irritating, but only brings up the point that when you try something with Retinol or glycolic or other such ingredients it’s wise to do a patch test before slathering it all over your body (or ask your skincare professional).
Also note that the formula does contain an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that will make your skin more sensitive to the sun’s rays so wear SPF (you should do this anyway, always).
The Bottom Line:
If you are starting to notice the signs of dermatoporosis (ok, just call it more bruising) and you want a nice moisturizer that does a lot more to help improve the look, feel and health of your skin, the DerMend Moisturizing Bruise Formula Cream may not sound like the sexiest product around, but it can certainly help you look and feel your best.
We say: If this is your issue or you’re worried you’re headed in this direction GO FOR IT!
