New Facial Exfoliant Set to Shake Up Your Skincare Regimen
I am loaded with chic, new and innovated ways to put your best face forward — literally . I can’t stress enough — how vital exfoliation is to the skin’s wellbeing and overall health. There’s a new patent pending process — which focuses on the “rolling action” — which removes dead skin…without stripping away your skin’s healthy tissues! It’s called POWDERWorks. This unique and new approach — is a powder-based facial exfoliant — which maintains it’s powder form, even after it is massaged onto your face. It leaves you with a clean feel, minus the icky residue build up — which can clog pores. This allows you to get full strength treatment — with exceptional performance! Did I mention that it is also all natural, and made with non-toxic ingredients? Or that it is formulated with a patent-pending one-of-the-kind rolling action technology, which is conveniently packaged in a shaker? What a chic alternative to those harsh scrubs, and facial peels. It exfoliates your face and neck without irritation!
It is infused with natural oils to polish and soften your skin as it literally rolls away the dead skin without harming the healthy layers. It is created for all skin types, and in particular for sensitive skin. This beauty product stands out from others: It utilizes a patent-pending mechanical process that results in zero irritation for all skin types.
“I am really excited that POWDERWorks facial exfoliant is now available to consumers women, men and teens. We are confident that this will become very popular. So far, the response has been overwhelming. My two teenage daughters and I all have very sensitive skin and we have tried a variety of facial exfoliants and were not satisfied and experienced side effects, such as irritation, says Leslie Granberry, Founder, POWDERWorks facial exfoliant. I was in search of an effective treatment and could not find one, so I decided to create my own skincare facial product. My husband and I teamed up and consulted with industry and skincare experts and after two years of R&D, POWDERWorks facial exfoliant has launched. What we created is an exceptional and high quality facial exfoliant that is very different.
How to Use — Easy as 1-2-3. First, lightly dampen your clean face with water. Secondly, shake desired amount of the powder onto your moist fingertips. Thirdly, massage onto face in circular motion & thoroughly rinse your face with water and pat dry. After one use, your skin will feel smoother and look brighter, renewed and glowing. The results are instant. Recommended use is twice a week for all skin types. It has been clinically tested to safely and gently exfoliate the facial skin (even neck) without any side effects, such as burning/itching/flaking. Many exfoliants – referred to as scrubs or peels – contain acid and harsh ingredients and often times strip and damage the healthy skin on the face leaving it red, flaky, burning and irritated. According to Granberry, exfoliation is the first step to beautiful skin. It is a technique that removes dead skin cells from the outermost layer of your skin, and, as a result the healthy living cells are revealed.
It is also safe enough to use around the sensitive eye and lip area and to use on the back of hands. Beautifully packaged (100% recyclable) in a 2 oz./60 ml shaker, it retails for $39.00 and consumers can purchase online at thepowderworks.com.
