I recently had the opportunity to try DerMend lotions for my horribly dry skin and wow the moisture returned. DerMend® Mature Skin Solutions features DerMend® Fragile Skin Moisturizing Formula, DerMend® Moisturizing Anti-Itch Lotion and DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula. The set is marketed for mature skin, but my skin is so dry and I bruise like a peach. Overall I found this product very gentle on the skin and helped with moisture.
Here are the products I tried
- DerMend® Fragile Skin Moisturizing Formula ($29.99, 4.5oz) helps rejuvenate thin, fragile, mature skin with such skin-loving ingredients as hyaluronic acid, retinol, glycolic acid, niacinamide and five critical ceramides to help make your skin more resilient and fresher looking. It is a lightweight, fragrance-free cream that absorbs easily and quickly and helps leave skin looking restored and rejuvenated.
- DerMend® Moisturizing Anti-Itch Lotion ($19.99, 8oz.) features the ingredient pramoxine hydrochloride 1% for the temporary relief of itching associated with minor skin irritations. Steroid-free, it quickly addresses a very common problem of mature skin – itchiness. “Skin may itch more as we get older, because it may be drier and lacking in adequate hydration,” explains Dr. Ceilley. “We don’t know why exactly, but it seems that as skin reaches the age of 65, it may become itchier. The problem is this skin disturbance can keep one from getting a good night’s sleep and that is not a good thing at any age, but especially as we get older.“ An ingredient such as pramoxine hydrochloride 1% can rapidly interfere with the itch/scratch cycle helping you to have calmer skin and a good night’s sleep.
- DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula ($29.99, 4.5oz) is a must for skin as it matures. As skin becomes thinner and more fragile, it may bruise more easily. Medications such as blood thinners may leave skin especially vulnerable to the development of bruises of all colors and sizes and may leave one yearning for “cover-up” clothing no matter how what the season. DerMend® Moisturizing Bruise Formula helps improve the appearance of bruised skin with a proprietary blend of ceramides, alpha hydroxy acid, arnica oil and retinol. These ingredients help to restore and rejuvenate the skin’s natural barrier.
